artsy fartsy mail artists....

 I have been slacking off  a bit at getting some of your 
amazing mail posted....
sorry about that. 
But here is some goodness for the week.
Above a lovely envelope from Ann to Sooz
 Above is a letter that one of 16 folks got from one of their
little kid pen pals. Some of us offered to partner up with some
kiddos at a school back east. This is from a 7 year old!
so so sweet!!
 a plethora of goodness from
many of you to Sherry
 a lovely watercolored tulip from Mona 
to pen pal Tanya
 My favorite mail from this week was from Sharon to VIcky...
hard to see here... but she sent her a vinyl record album and yup
it sent just like this. A plastic easter egg mailed just like this 
with a strip of curled paper that was the letter, a brag book
also sent just taped up like this with bits about Sharon inside each
page.... and down in front is a quilted letter. She wrote the letter, printed 
it on muslin and Quilted the whole thing. Sharon has always put
the rest of us to shame with her creativness
 more goodness from Letizia
this mail made it all the way to ITALY!!!
 Annette from the UK has sent some 
awesome mail to Jenn Byrd
THis sweet little cup is being shipped out 
to Sharon just like it is shown here.
And yes, those are the new letter writing month
postage stamps. Enjoy this weeks mail!!!

pen pal. They are waiting and wanting mail.

You've Got Mail!

 
Such a cute picture of letter writer
Debra with a card from her pen pal Kelly
below is Debra with her cards
(she is the little girl version of herself in the background~)


 Some of you are sharing 
your wonderful trips to the mailbox....
Above is Debra sharing mail from Martha

 This is from Rachel who lives in Northern California
and I think from this peek at a return address
and the clue of the "outback"
that her pen pal is from Austrailia!


 Below is a little bit 
of spring happiness that miss Sherry
got from Martha, Kelly and one other pen friend

This tube of Easter goodness
was sent to Sherry from her pen pal
Stacy!

Look at all those Easter treats!!!
What did you get from your pen friend?

 Hey Letter Writing Fans....

 These two pretties...
are from Rachel in Berkely
Not sure if she received or sent these but they are pretty
 And this is how it's done folks... This is Ellen, holding up her mail for the day
from Marti... and she is wearing her ever appropriate bunny ears.
That makes me very hoppy!!!
Keep those cards and letters coming...
