Mailbox Delights

Here’s my hoard of cards from the 2014 DIY iHanna postcard swap.  Received 8 out of 10 cards.  I suppose it’s still possible to receive the other 2 since it can take about 10 days to mail a card from some places around the world.  Still hoping!!

From top left–sent by Eunice of the U.K., Lauren from New York, circles card from Cindy of somewhere in the U.S., cloud, rain and flowers from Randy of the Netherlands, orange background, blue washi tape and fabric cloud with “delightful”
from Simone in Australia, text background with my initial “C” monogram in embroidery from Barbro in Sweden, abstract in markers from Chris in California and stars, collage and “Do more of what make’s you happy” from Natalie in New York!

Love doing these exchanges!  Surprises in the mailbox are fun but one of the greatest parts are connecting with people from all over and knowing there are so many people out there who want to share a little bit of art in an unusual way!!

About artsynaturenut

I'm a creative warrior constantly fighting my battle with my muse against that nasty critic. I love to paint and do mixed media work either on the canvas or with art journals. I'll dabble in just about everything--bookmaking, photography, writing, etc. and get excited about combining them. Hence the mixed media!
