I recently took part in a Mail Art Exchange, set up by the lovely Ginger. I had to send overseas, so I was mindful of the cost of postage. Not that I’m stingy you understand, just budget conscious! Rather than sticking lots of things to the outside of my envelope and adding to the weight, I decorated it using masks, inks and stamps. I will share my photos of it, as soon as I know it has arrived safely.
I enjoyed myself so much, that I decorated a couple more. I had a plentiful supply of envelopes to recycle, having celebrated a birthday not too long ago. I then saw this project and thought it was a great idea and a logical extension of the Mail Art Exchange. Check out their Facebook page, or read about it here instead.
I’m going to commit to send a piece of handwritten mail every week for the next year. The event starts on October 9th, anyone care to join me?
Tomorrow I’ll be posting Part 4 of my Handmade Gift ideas. Please drop by if you need some inspiration, there are a lot of talented folk out there.
