So much Mail!!

HELLO!!  I love it when I get to send out larger packages.  I like to make a statement you know...wink, wink!

I had a few packages to send out this week.  The top crazy painted one is another one of my little Grace's masterpieces.  She took it up to her daddy, Mr. MCD, and told him, we have to take it to the "post box!"  Little G was getting her post office and mail box mixed up.  We've been going to them both a lot lately.

The one to Autumn was a postcard that for some weird reason got sent back to me...and there was a CLEAR AS DAY to and from.  Not sure but I didn't want to make another one, so I just packaged it up.

The package addressed to Julie is actually a beautiful set of envelopes and address tags that I handmade for her.  I used a textured card stock and boy was it nice!!!  That reminds me...I have to get the pictures off of my camera so that I can post an envelope tutorial!!

The one of the far left is actually a gorgeous navy blue.

Julie has a fantastic blog called Penpal of The Week where she hosts penpal interviews, ads, mail art and custom designed stationary.  Look at her awesome button below!!  I think with all my web browsing...I love the sites with amazing buttons.

She also has this really cool series called "Top 10 Quirks."  I've actually sent her my top ten quirks and I'll let you know when they are up.  

So, for the swap, she gets the envelopes/tags and I get these:

Isn't that some fun stationary!!  I think the orange one is my favorite.  I really can't wait to get them and starting writing letters to my people!

Below is a really neat little piece of mail art.  I took the back of a magazine and made it into an envelope.  I then cut out some ransom style letters (can't wait to share the ransom style postcard I'm making) and also modge podged some Chinese fortunes...I love those things!

It's a random collaged mess of an envelope...but it leaves an impression!!!  Hope Tasha likes it.

P.S....I have a hankering to sew...

Your outgoing mail is outstandingly beautiful! I can imagine little squeaks of joy from the recipients when they find those envelopes in their mail boxes!

Your quirks are up on Julie's website and are most entertaining!!

Hi Shanna,

Big hello from Hollland! Just found out your blog and i think you made great stuff! And so does your 2 year old...hehe, i am curious when my 2 year old monster will help me with my mail art..hehe:)


Momma C Designs said...

Holland! Wow! Well, thank you for checking out the blog Joonstar! I hope you come back often. Oh, and G started mail art by accident...she got one of my pieces that I was working on and went to town on it. Needless to say, I had to start over but she kept wanting to "color envelopes!!"

Joonstar said...

Yep, you keep me coming back! Had a look at your work and loved the things you made so far! It's nice to spice up the mail and keep snailmail alive! Whenever you are looking for pals, let me know!
