Good mail days

Good Mail Days!

I put my address up on a mail art website recently when they were asking for people to write to each other. It has been so much fun! I have met some really cool people and I have a long list of people still to write to. Here are some things I've gotten so far.

This is not from the mail. But my good friend Robyn brought this over. I was so excited! I love this stuff! Thanks Robyn!

I'm ready for a quiet evening alone answering mail!

This first mail I received from this letter group! Vintage postcards from Christine!
So cool!

Awesome mail from Patty. I love how she recycled a used envelope. Cool idea! Her goal this year was to write 365 letters! And she is on track!

Inside she included some images to use on more mail art. And I really loved how her letter was written on advertisements from a magazine! I so have to try that! And it was an ad for Tiffany's no less! Y'all know how much I love tiffany's! I still haven't shown you my mother's day gift-from Tiffany's! I love my hubby. I'm getting off track!

This is from Marnie. Love that envelope! She's a sweetheart. I've got a package going out to her soon.

A little note from Stephanie with some goodies. So fun!

Here's a closer look at her envelope. I love it!

From Linda. She sent this little book and an amazing handbound, leather journal with handmade paper inside. So gorgeous! I felt spoiled and slightly unworthy. I still have to find something to send to her that is equally cool!

This mail stuff has been so much fun! i love talking to people around the country and I have the addresses of people in other countries also. So fun! I love how the internet can help people connect over miles and miles. I have met so many cool people! I'm doing a round robin art journal project with some ladies from YouTube and I know that when I am ready to start my own round robin project I have a bunch of people ready to participate. It's awesome!

CONTEST UPDATE! The final video for my art journal contest is coming. Be patient! It has been crazy since we've been back. It will be up probably by this weekend. I have gotten some message from people telling me they do not have a YouTube account but would like to participate. Since I am not the kind of person who would solicit subscribers with a contest I will make it more fair. Three people to leave a comment on the video that is coming and 3 people to leave a comment here on my blog with the same information (see contest rules). That way everyone can play! Yay!

Talk to you soon!

Jamie mentioned her loathing of sharks on her video, but I have proof that she is one fo the bravest people I know. Here she is standing next to a picture of Bruce from Finding Nemo. I think her heart actually stopped during this picture, but she lived and even endured the experience with a smile.

She is amazing!

Holy cow, girlie! I love the way you used your skull stickers. SUPER cute! But then again, I just love skulls.... And your Paris page- I didn't know that you had been there, though it doesn't surprise me, either. It seems very you! Gorgeous stuff, as always!

That sure is a good mail day, wow. I wish more people would write letters and send mail art. It is so fun to receive it - and to send to of course! ;-)
