I'm such a lucky duck! I got mail! Not bills...wonderful, lovely mail! I just received this package a few days ago, from the lovely and talented Joyelle. She has a wonderful new art blog called An Artful Endeavor and I was the first to sign up to follow her, so she sent me a thank you present! How cool is that?
She sent gorgeous handmade cards with her beautiful photographs on them! Woo Hoo! I don't know if I'll be able to send them off to anyone, I might have to hold on to one or two of them for inspiration. Joyelle is one multi-talented lady, go check out her blog to find out for yourself.
And, how cool is this...I got mail from The Netherlands!! (below). I saw on Brigitte's wonderful
blog called Scrappassie Blog that she was offering to trade some of her ATC's (Artist Trading Card) to anyone interested, so of course I jumped at the chance.
I received this a few weeks back, but I'm way behind on my blog posts so I'm barely posting it right now...oops! Here is the fun ATC that I picked out! I love the colors and it has such a great kind of sandpapery texture on it. And "Dream Big" is written on it...wonderful. Oh and she made this cute little green butterfly envelope to keep it in, which I love and which inspired me to make a little envelope to put the ATC I sent her into.
Poor Brigitte had to wait a few extra weeks for me to get my act together and mail off her ATC. I wanted to make up for her wait so I added onto the package a bit. Here's the front of the envelope...
And this fish is on the back. Above the fish it says "mail + art = love. I normally don't go this crazy on envelopes, but I had some extra time and couldn't get to the post office so i had a little fun!
This (above) is the ATC that I sent her and below shows the small ATC envelope I made to keep it in, and a card I made her which I showed two posts ago here. I sent a few more goodies for her to use on her ATCs or art, but I didn't get a pict of it all. You can see it on her blog and while you're there you need to look at her amazing zentangles. I am in awe of them!
