We All Need Mail Art Friends!

My mailbox has been super happy lately! All this wonderful, colorful,cheerful mail from around the world!

Donna has been doing the most amazing paintings this year- so vibrant and wonderful. I was lucky to get one her postcards of the new ladies. Isn't she stunning! You can see more of her painting and artsy goodness on her blog.


Joanna at Fiddlesnips and I did a mail art swap this month. I have admired her collage creations all year and was thrilled to receive this beauty. And, oh, did that envelope look pretty sitting in my mailbox. Thank you, Joanna!


Mindy from Tim's Sally is doing a great mail art exchange. Anyone is welcome to send her mail art and she'll send back one of her adorable paintings. I also loved her homemade stamps! Check out her site and see all the great mail she's been recieving! It's incredible.


Corrine from Dosfishes and I have been exchanging mail art for a while now, and she never ceases to amaze me with new ways to Wow a girl! Her collages are always such a cool mix of techniques and ideas that always inspire!


Today, I recieved the most adorable bookmark from a wonderful friend,Wanda,  I met through Good Mail Day.  I love her and the ribbons tied on there! She is going in my book tonight! Thank you so much!

In the last year through blogging, Good Mail Day, and Postcrossing, I always seem to be coming home to fabulous surprises! These are just a few of them.

Hi Katie ... you have had some lovely mail art, and thank you for sharing mine on your blog. Yesterday, Allyson picked up the mail for me, and I too was greeted with a whole stack of fantastic mail (Yours among them). It just cheered me up no end! Hopefully now, I can spend a few days writing some letters and making 'pretty' things to send out. I agree, it is sooo much fun. Take care. xxDonna

Hi, Katie. I do enjoy your blog--you have such interesting things and a nice variety. The mail art is so beautiful, fun and ephemeral at the same time. I liked your felting and the jelly roll results. Glad you've found spinning--it is amazing. I started when I had a few sheep (less woolly and rather hairy because of the climate), then got my mom into it (who became a fanatic spinner in Oregon--better fleece to be had), however, I haven't spun in a long time. Really don't need a lot of wool here in Tunisia.
best, nadia
