This is a busy time of year but I am still finding time to send out lots of mail.
Sent out some vintage Christmas seals in clear envelopes. Maybe that cheered up the postal workers a little (as well as the friends who received them).
These little gifts all went out wrapped in red and gold Chinese paper.
Can't show you what's inside because that would ruin the surprise, wouldn't it?
Long lines at the post office -- hard to believe they have no business when you see the
long lines and the stuffed mailboxes.
Too bad the USPS doesn't get this much mail/boxes being sent all year long.
I did my share, believe me. I don't even want to think how much I spent mailing all my boxes and international letters out this past Thursday....
but it is worth it to cheer up all my friends!
Lunch is always involved in the plan.
Caffe Puccini in San Francisco. My favorite place for cappuccino and lunch.
The SF Correspondance Co-Op had a party last Thursday night at the Center for the Book.
There was a lovely display of mail art by Co-Op members.
I see a couple of my pieces on this one...

Of course there was Food!
Food and letter press fonts (can you see all of them in the background?)
Food, fun, mail art, drink, a typewriter raffle which I didn't win..drats...this was way too much fun.
I think Jennie may be posting about the party so I won't go into any more details.
And check out her blog for some great crafting for Christmas at the last minute ideas!

This is a wonderful tutorial from Andria's Drawing Near Blog for making
little notebooks from airmail envelopes. She has some other good ideas too - like make your own washi tape -- check it out..
I know I"m inspired to make some.
Told you I have been busy!
All of this mail went out on Friday......
..........and all of this will be on the way today as soon as I finish this post...
I have only gotten six holiday cards so far so I am sure hoping
my incoming mail picks up this week.
