Life's Little Adventures

Creepy Halloween-inspired handmade envelopes.....
are there tricks inside?
Or treats?

Stack of Outgoing Mail
I have really been busy sending out lots of mail...keep the post office in business and
keep me out of trouble...
plus, as we all know, you've got to send good mail to get good mail.

Collaged postcards

Handmade envelopes with little treats tucked inside...and apples from my apple tree.
(Yes, there was pie)

More outgoing (I told you I've been busy) -- collaged postcards and another creepy envelope.
Creepy in a good way.

Not to complain, but last week wasn't a real great mail week -- except -- all this arrived on Friday
and that was a good mail day.
One day my mail was delivered at 7:40PM! Can you believe it? I have to say, I think that really
is way too late.
And after waiting all day long for it to come, I didn't get anything good.

Three collaged postcards, loaded with stamps, have arrived from New Delhi, India.
I have a friend living there for several months and she is making mail art
and taking cooking lessons -- so I am hoping for an Indian dinner when she gets back (are you listening DD?)

Correspondence Co-Op Meeting
on Wednesday night. Always fun. Getting my passport stamped with artistamps
is just part of the fun....

Seeing Catwrangler's fabulous postal bag was another highlight....

Show and Tell is always fun too - CW made a stamp-carving zine and brought in some
Eraser Stamps that can be used for carving rubber stamps...
I'm going to have to try making some..

Happy Halloween
So all you ghouls and case I don't see you...have a
Happy Halloween.

Washi decorated luggage tag with air mail ribbon on suitcase..
I just can't leave well enough alone, can I?
I think the tag and suitcase look much better with postal trim.

Now everybody -- mail me something back!

249 "followers"?
Who will be lucky number 250?
