|Thanks to all the folks who have made me and my mailbox so happy all this past year!|
|Hope you have all had a happy holiday season, whatever holidays you celebrate.|
|Looking forward to sending and receiving lots of mailart in 2011|
Send Good Mail -- Get Good Mail!
|Santa delivered last night|
(and ate all the cookies too).
Apparently I have been very good.
|Santa (or someone) has been reading my blog and knew how much I wanted a typewriter.|
(Actually this beauty came from my very sweet husband).
I am delighted
and will be pounding out some mail starting tomorrow.
The funny thing is, I actually read about my own surprise on Tom's blog
but didn't put it together:
Good thing the surprise wasn't ruined!
Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
|Lots of wonderful mail coming in....|
who knew there were so many of us out there?
A Very Happy Mail Box indeed.
|and Garci --|
love that airline luggage sticker on her envelope.
|And this mysterious postcard arrived with no identifying marks or names, not even a postmark -- who sent it?|
Maybe it 's from the Mailart 365 Project
|Another beautiful watercolor from Marni in Malaysia|
|Very cool from Alice|
|And from Tallie|
A Welcome to the Mailart 365 group
|Check out this great bug stamp!|
Mail is coming in faster than I can ever photograph it
and post it on here -- or answer it!
I must get out my art supplies and my pens and get busy,
we all know you've got to send mail to get mail.
I think I'll go make some postcards.
|Sometimes you just have to help Santa along.......|
|Loving these dots|
What's this? Airmail stickers in a tiny box, postal pins and more...
Just want I wanted!
|Close-up of the stickers.|
Handmade by Donovan, ordered on Etsy
and just in case you want them too,
here's the link:
Tell her Pamela sent you!
|I want my very own Art O Mat|
|Red would be nice|
|All stocked up|
|And a Photo Booth would be good too.|
I've been very good
so please keep this in mind.
I'd also like a typewriter.
If I don't get what I wished for, at least I know I can go over to Rayko Gallery in San Francisco and play with their toys.
And, I have been buying a few postal presents for myself.
More about those later.
|Air Mail Paper -- love that airplane -- just lined paper inside but I had to have that airplane.|
|Air mail envies --- very cool -- haven't seen these before.|
|Love the good-luck envelopes.|
They are for gifting money but I like using them for gifting stamps (or maybe gift cards).
|Practice your A, B C's....|
|Love the air mail sign so much - here is a close-up.|
|Ok, this isn't mail but I really liked the way this alley looked.|
Chinatown is a lot of fun for shopping. I have been exploring for years and still always come across something interesting every time I visit.
Good time to browse Chinatown, I guess everyone is downtown Christmas shopping.
Happy Mail Day.
|Lovely mail from a new contact from the IUOMA|
|A Holiday surprise from a Postal pal.|
|From Sally in London -- this one made out through the snow -|
via air mail, of course.
(Love that stamp)
|My pal RO strikes again.|
|This one is really nice -- envelope made from (what looks like) an old page from a book.|
Notice the PO managed to tear it on the left side but it still arrived OK
and thankfully not in a "We Care" bag!
|From The Netherlands -- wonderful handmade envelope with letter, postcards and a recipe inside.|
Thanks so much, Annejo.
Definitely a good mail day (or two).
|Collage coffee card went out to a coffee lover.|
Of course, I love cappuccino.
|I finally got my nerve up to tear up one of the typewriting manuals|
and make some envelopes.
Still lots of great pages in there.
Anybody want one? Post a comment and I will send you one.
(Let me know if you want it sent through the mail to you or enclosed in an envelope for you to send).
|A thank-you note to a pal.|
|Heading out to Baton Rouge....|
(you know who you are).
|A wonderful incoming from someone I hope will be a new postal pal..|
I took this letter out to lunch with me.
Mail stories: A pal in Panama sent me a letter over a month ago which never arrived.
He e-mailed to ask about it. It turns out the postal service in Panama isn't real great. Postboxes and Post Offices are few and far between and very often mail goes missing.
Another friend from England, wrote to say, she has been snowed in for a week and no mail was delivered because the postmen "didn't have the right shoes".
Gives new meaning to our postal motto
"Through rain, and snow and sleet".
Ok, we don't get snow or sleet here in San Francisco but it is raining like crazy as I write this.
And, I'm sure, I'll get my mail delivery today.
Hope I get something good!

Another set of Sunday colors -- today a calming ivory -- to offset the busy time of year.

Greetings from rainy San Francisco.
Remember, send mail--get mail!
