Ending the week...
IncomingI got a few goodies in the past couple of days. The first was a package from a Postcrossing tag. This came from Austria:
Then I got some letters:
My membership card, a pin and a welcome letter. The Letter Writers Alliance is a a group dedicated to preserving the art of letter writing. You can't seriously be surprised that I would want to be a part of this group. :) Wait until I start sending mail out on official LWA stationary. If anyone reading this is a LWA member, leave a comment and introduce yourself.
I also got a letter from Claudine in France. She also sent me some Ritter Sport chocolate with some berry "yoghurt" filling. Delicious!!!
Outgoing:I have quite a few letters that went out, as well as a Postcrossing tag. I have been exploring all kinds of interesting blogs, including people who make some really pretty mail art. Mama Rae's Adventurous Days is one of those blogs. I looked at her mail and thought "What a difference that cute envelope makes!" So, I was inspired to make a few envelopes of my own. I made these 4 out of a map, 2 tourist brochures and a new Super Mario Brothers advertisement. Tonight I made some from a calendar of New England. (I apologize if you get one of these. They are very pretty but somewhat lopsided too!)
The 366 Project:
I feel really good about being able to sit and write some nice quality letters and not feel totally rushed. I'm hoping I'll get to 15% (of the whole project) received by the end of the month. Come on people- send those letters! I'm hoping I will get 20%-25% of the sent letters done by the end of August. It's a big goal! I still have a TON to go.
Have a nice weekend everyone! Thanks for reading!
