Outgoing in Winter

So Spring has pretty much sprung here in Guernsey and it’s time to share with you my outgoing mail over the winter months.

I had lots of fun using all the new craft materials I got for Christmas and even tried out some new booklet style pieces of mail, see what you think.

Here are the stats for my outgoing mail during winter:Β I have sent 27 postcards, 4 letters and 6 cards to a total of 15 countries.

*(Belarus, Canada, China, England, Finland, France, Germany, Guernsey, Italy, Latvia, Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Taiwan, U.S.A.)

Here are some of the shots:

    I may need to move away so that i can receive some of this lovely mail. I love the fairy theme and the card with cups set my heart a tingling

    On closer look were they jugs or cups? Anyway small jugs are also lovely as I have 3 small jugs so far in my collection.

      I believe it is a mixture of both jugs and cups. πŸ™‚

    Oh, these are lovely! What inspired the booklet-style mail? Are you going to continue doing it?

      The booklet style was actually inspired by two of my own penpals who send such wonderful creations. They’re fun to create too.
