Here is some of my outgoing mail for October. I am posting the photos of my First Day of Issue for my new artistamp, now that I am pretty sure everyone has gotten theirs. I hope that you have all received yours!
There was much more mail that went out, but I was so far behind that I just mailed them when I did them instead of waiting until I could get them photographed. I hopefully won't get so far behind in the future...
Lots of postal fun from: Janine in Switzerland, Cathy in Ohio, and Chris and Marion both in Pennsylvania.
Mail from my Canadian pen friends Wanda and Monique
Butterfly lovliness from Kimi in California and Courtney in Australia
Rusty in Oklahoma, sent me this beautiful hand drawn card wishing me blessings on the first of our fall feasts, Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets) also known as Rosh Hashanna. This was quite a nice surprise Rusty... it was as sweet to my heart as apples and honey are to the taste!
Next was a mysterious cylinder with my name on it... also from Limner. I played the "guess what it is" game for a couple hours before I allowed myself to open it. I couldn't have possibly guessed how beautiful and unique the contents would be, but below you will see the surprise contents of the package.
Sirpa in Finland, sent me this beautiful watercolor festooned envie with a letter that was also decorated with her lovely artwork. Sirpa has such a gift with watercolors, pen and ink. I am always amazed by her mail art! Included in the envelope was a Marjolein Bastin note card to add to the collection I have received from Sirpa in the past.
I have also received letters from Troy in Colorado, Donavan in Maryland, Angelia in Illinois and Tom in Missouri.Thanks to everyone who takes the time from their busy lives to share some of themselves with me!
