Mail Art Exchange

Hi All

This was the wonderful one I received from Lorna. I can't even begin to tell you how it made me feel to receive this. Halloween is my favourite thing and this was just the most perfect thing.

I expect I have made you all envious! Lorna - I loved it.

Love Michelle xx

Friendship Exchange

Hi All

Sorry for the delay with me being on holiday but just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to my partner for my wonderful Friendship exchange. I adore it.

Love Michelle xx

A question?

before i post the next exchange for you to sign upto i want to ask you if you would be interested in a mail art exchange, this is'nt the next one i just want to see the interest for future exchanges,
for those that don't know it is basicaly making a stitched envelope stitching an address on it put a card inside and popping it in the post, when i first heard of these i was like, no way you can't just pop it in the post box but oh yes you can, i made one for michelle at halloween, she was my guineapig, i had to try it out, i did'nt tell michelle just popped it in the post and held my breath

it arrived safe and sound the next day, i was thrilled and wanted to have another go, so last week i posted another one for an exchange and today i received one back, the nice peole at the post office had even put the one on its way to me in a plaggie bag to keep it clean, i am hooked on them now and thought maybe its an exchange we could do, they are very easy to make.

if you look in my blog you can see two examples and if we ask nicely michelle might even show us hers

so is this something we could do?

My Exchange Came this morning!!

Well, actually, it came on saturday, but the silly postman came at 7:45. I'm rarely up before 9, and I couldn't ask for it to be redelivered until today - so I did. And I LOVE it!!!

Thank you, sender. Can someone tell me if it's OK to post a picture yet? If it is, I'll edit this post, and add it in. I've never done an exchange before, so I don't know when the "right time" is. x
