I wrote a few weeks ago about the Mail Art Exchange I had joined for the first time and which had been organised by Ginger. I nervously sent off my post with the theme of "Earth" all the way across the ocean to Austin, TX and received a lovely email from Amanda to say that it had arrived safe and sound.
And then, a few days ago I also received my mail from St Paul, Minnesota (had to look that up on the map!).
How wonderful it was to open up my mail box and find something so pretty and bright and happy in there rather than the usual grey/white bill-filled envelopes. It was just what I needed to brighten up my day and make me smile.
Carol Anne had covered the envelope with little marching ladybirds and stamped foliage and inside was such a lovely card full of wishes for a happy day and an earth coloured tag inside ready to use on a scrap page someday.
I'm not sure when the next Mail Art Exchange will be, but make sure you are on board for next time because it's such a lot of fun. Wouldn't you prefer to receive something pretty in the post rather than a boring white envelope?
