sun 12 feb 2017... mail|
Haha! So much for taking pics of my mail every day!
(I've not posted anything here for a week.)
Truth be told, I got bored of the pics because I was
only sending one or two postcards every day last week.
And I ran out of time to get creative with the backgrounds.
So, here is what I worked on this weekend, with the
standard boring background... tho I do like the Copic
markers as props! :)
Sending on Monday: 4 letters
One to a friend, one swap-bot notecard
and two swap-bot "Interest Me in a Book" notes
Oh, and I love to use digital paper as belly bands when I
send standard letter-size paper in the US#10 envelope...
You can't see it in the pic, but the brownish dot paper
is very beautiful and is included in this set, made by my
friend Linda at Happy Print Club:
Stationery Printables. And yes, there's tons of free
printables on the Internets... but I prefer to support

I cut up a couple world maps to make a bunch of
postcards this past weekend.
They came out amazingly well!
I put 11 of them in the this morning's mail.
Also Sent: 2 welcome postcards
+ 2 letters
= 15 total bits of mail today!

Sent: 3 welcome postcards
fri 3 feb 2017... condolences|
Sent: 1 condolence card
sighs. Last year I lost track of how many condolence cards I sent.
And this year is starting out the same.
This is the second sympathy card I've
sent this year, already.
It's a hard thing to do. It's sad and
there is nothing you can say on a
card that will help. But, believe me, it is very
very important that you write and send something!

sun 22 jan 2017... LetterMo Plans|
Yay Mail! and Yay Month of Letters!
Okay, so you know the State of the Blog
is "way behind"... so what is
the State of the Postcards??
Well, there's good. and bad. and normal.
Good: I got a slow start at the beginning of the month because I was
not feeling well... but I am catching up big time and am on track to
have a regular month. During a regular month, I send out
about 130 postcards and notecards! Yay Mail!
Bad: I am very behind on my mail log. What's involved here? I scan
my incoming mail and type it into my mail log and then postcards need to
be registered with certain websites. I'm still dealing with december
mail, here! ack!
And Normal: xmas Thank You notes, not written yet. Probably won't be
sent until March or so! haha! yep. this is normal.
My letter writing work space in Dec when I was writing Amnesty International
protest letters for Write for Rights. I thought the Star Trek stamps were
appropriate! and I'm still decorating my envelopes with my Wide markers.
friday 20 jan 2017... Behind the times, but catching up|
Well. um. Happy New Year!
I have had some creative down time... I never completed the
posts for my daily drawing month in November, I didn't post
again after that, and, most importantly, I did not post my
annual First of January "year in review".
I've been doing a Jan 1st post for about a million years, and
this is the first time I've ever missed it!
I got busy. Then I got busy with the holidays. And then
I got sick with a bad and lingering flu.
I'm feeling better now, so, here's the plan...
I will fill in older posts as I get the time.
I will back date them, but I will post
them here on this page in the order that I type them.
I have deleted the rest of this page in order to encourage my
participation in this plan: it looks kind of empty around
here, doesn't it??! Look! You can see the bottom of the page!
hello, rift?! Type something, rift!!!
for Inauguration Day:
I stand on the side of LOVE.

I am rift vegan!|
