My Washi Week

Washi Clips

Last week Alyson Kuhn contacted me and asked to include some of my projects
with washi tape in a post on
Felt and Wire
The post came out today and Alyson did a wonderful job with it.
Check it out and see my washi work along with work by GinaVisione,
Shasta Garcia and Alyson Kuhn.
Please leave a comment for Alyson on the Felt & Wire blog if you like it!
Tell her I sent you.
And, of course, comments are always very welcome here on my blog too.

My Outgoing Envelopes
Besides the binder clips and address and datebooks, of course I use washi tape
on my handmade envelopes too.

Surprise For GinaVisione
Well, maybe it won't be a complete surprise since Alyson mentioned it on Felt & Wire today and here I am showing this envelope but I hope Gina enjoys what's inside.

Washi clips with St Patrick's Day spirit!

Stacks
You can see the covers of all my datebooks and address books on Felt & Wire
but here is a stack of them sitting pretty.

MY OUTGOING MAIL
More handmade envelopes going out....

Outgoing Collaged postcards

Outgoing
Recipe cards made into cards..
I think these need a bit more decoration on them -- still working on them.

Incoming letter book from the fabulous Karen Isaacson (who sends great mail).
And a special shout-out to Karen for inspiring me to make the washi chips
following her example. If you haven't checked out Karen's Blog
you should.
HINT

Hope you enjoyed the Felt and Wire link and are inspired to create some of your own
projects.
Remember, if you send good mail -- you get good mail!

Special thanks to GinaVisione, Karen Isaacson and Alyson Kuhn.

Postcards will be sent.

    1. Karen--so happy you enjoyed the post and got some new ideas. We've got to keep you real busy! Maybe you could email Gina and commission one of those tape holders. And YOU were the inspiration for the binder clips.
