A Quick One!

SWEET!
Outgoing for The Elevated Envelope swap.
I had fun doing this swap - making envelopes from vintage cookbook pages
of sweets.

Check out Tara's blog for info about the swap--
The Elevated Envelope

This is the second time I've done this and it is a whole lot of fun.

Tucking little surprises inside......can't tell you everything or I will ruin the surprise.

OUTGOING
Lemon meringue pie, ice cream floats, cookies and jello envelopes going out....

OUTGOING
Some more outgoing, including the hamburger cookies to the kids at The Beam Camp
in New Hampshire.
Hope those cookies didn't melt in that heat you have going on back there..

Wrapped Presents
These aren't mail art but given my love of paper and cleverness
and great things to look at I thought I'd show you these lovely presents wrapped by J.U.
in in SF.
These are so pretty I'd hate to unwrap them (but I would!)

Envelope Cookies!
All that work on the Sweet Swap makes me think of cookies.
Sally and Kirsten's cookies...

Library Pocket
Made a few library pockets to tuck small things into like Jennifer's artistamps

Origami
My son made a bunch of these two-toned little origami folders. His idea was to
put stamps inside but they are a bit small for that.
We'll think of something!

Antiques
Summer is such a great time to travel around the Bay Area and browse...
maybe pick up some paper ephemera to play with....

Speaking of that, this coming weekend, August 4&5 is the Vintage Paper Fair here
in San Francisco -- maybe I will see you there!

And be sure to check out the Felt and Wire blog on Friday
for a post about the
SF CORRESPONDENCE CO-OP!
With some photos by me.

See you.
