Spring Like Day and Mail

 It was 65 degrees today, so gorgeous an its still February, unbelievable.  It definitely felt like spring today and tomorrow its suppose to get up to 70!

Mail that went out today to new friends...envie made from scrapbook paper, then a variety of magazine clippings adhered and a cute little post-it for the address label. 

Backside of the envie

Another envie went out today, made from a magazine page from W and various magazine clippings.  Really loved the sweet pink of this mag page.

My daughter, Kerri asked me to use this magazine page as an envie, purple is her favorite color an I just added MORE magazine clippings plus the post-it (got packs on clearance for only .25 at Target a couple of weeks ago - love the $1 bins!)  Little note pad from Michael's $1 bin that I wrote the letter on.

More goodies I "tucked-in" the envie, some of the paperpad from Michael's, some sheets from the Smash Book line, cool skeleton keys I made, as well as the rosettes and the post its.

Time to work on more mail for tomorrow.
This weekend I'll be going to a scrapbook crop, really looking forward to it and I will have some pages to display for next week!

Presidents' Day - No Mail ...sigh....

Yes, it is Presidents' Day which means NO MAIL and makes me sad.  Bad enough none on Sunday,
but this makes 2 days in a row, no mail joy!  Well, that doesn't mean I stop making mail art
envies to send out though!

found the art nouveau design online then added some magazine clippings to it...

Need to go to a CROP - miss working on my scrapbook pages for hours and hours at a time and at a crop is the easiest and most inspiring way to do it in my opinion.

Happy Valentine's Day

Such a lovely surprise to wake up to from my hubby!!

Envie I worked on last night so I am ready for the next letter to go out.  Used a bill envie, covered with a map from my trip last week out to Iowa, then got busy having fun gluing some magazine clippings to the envie an a little doodling

Pretty little envie with these goodies in side from my friend Hilda - for Valentine's Day

a lovely card, with a letter and another zine to view.

This goes out in the mail tomorrow to my new friend Kendra in California!  Reused an envie sent to me with a bill (oh joy) and covered with a page from a magazine, then added the "kraft paper ribbon" I threw together by sewing it onto the envie, as sewed on buttons, some other stickers and magazine clippings and used a sharpie for some doodle/detailing - hope she enjoys the mailart and the goodies within!

Light mail day for me yesterday, but can always count on my best pal, Hilda in Mississippi to send me a letter and goodies - looking at all that fruit makes me hungry!
a sweet card inside along with a letter and a zine she just got on
