Day 2 of Letter Mo. - VALENTINES!!

So I have succeeded in day 1 of Letter Mo.  Let's see how far I can take this! I "failed" at MailArt 365 in the sense that I did not mail once a day for a year, but I still think of it as a success since I did mail a lot of things and I met a whole lot of nice people.

Remember I said I'd had people over to make Valentines? Well here is the mess we made:

Cocktail glasses, pens, markers, paper, tape, postcards, envelope templates GALORE!

And here are some of the Valentines that I made that have already been sent out. Hopefully I'm not ruining any surprises here.

I just got the new love stamps yesterday. LOVE THEM!!! :D 
So I was using last years love stamps, anything red, and the cherry trees/D.C. stamps for the Valentines that were sent before.
I really love these Earth stamps. It was hard to say goodbye.

Cranberry harvest is pretty awesome. When I lived in Mass. I saw some cranberry bogs but sadly not when they were in season.
 One made with odds and ends for my parents. In the corner in the left you can see a phone book. Someone shared this trick with me a while ago (I'm sorry I've forgotten who it was)... When glueing put the piece you are glueing on top of a sheet in your phone book so that the page catches the extra glue. Then just rip the page off and recycle it and repeat! Every time we get a new phone book they give us two, so I used one of those, but you could also use any old ones you have lying around if you don't want to sacrifice your only phone book.  Catalogues can work okay too, but I find that the pages don't rip out as nicely if the pages are stapled together.


  1. Your mess looks like my desk on a good day!

  2. Glad to see you have your own little letter writing & mail art club of sorts. :) Looks like it was lots of fun.

  3. Some very cute envelopes you created :)
