Mail Art

I've received some very pretty mail art recently. The first is from Joanna created for the theme "Starts with a K." Isn't it gorgeous? Jo also included a sweet gift for me...a fun Creative Expressions Mask. I know I'm going to enjoy using that in my journal. Thank you Joanna!

Here are the envelopes I sent for the swap. I decided my "starts with a K" envelopes would be all about a kitschy kitchen. I love the women in these old advertisements. On the back I chose a 50s modern kitchen for each of them.

When I got back from Santa Barbara, Sue's Christmas envelope was waiting for me. I love all the different Christmas stamps she used. Inside was lots of vintage Christmas ephemera and some Christmas stamps for my own use...what a treat! Thank you Sue!

Here are the Christmas envelopes I sent out. I can't believe this little group has been sharing mail art for a whole year now. It's always a surprise to find one of these wonderful envelopes in my mailbox. I'm looking forward to doing it all again in the coming year.

So glad my mail art arrived safely, it's always a bit of a surprise when it does! I love the other mail art you gave and received too!
