A few months back, I started swapping decos* after a several years break from it. Here are the first ones I made.
*Deco; A small booklet, usually made on a certain theme, gets sent from person to person. Each person decorate a page on the given theme, and when all pages are filled, the deco is sent back to its owner.
Theme: Bright Colors
Theme: Things With Wings
This week’s batches of outgoing mail. No letters though. Seriously, I’m happy if I manage writing two letters a month, so no way I would be able to send out these many letters! It’s a few bits and pieces I sold in a Swedish planner group on Facebook. Even if only sending sold stuff, I enjoy decorating the envelopes when I know the recepients are crafty people. IF I have the time, that is.
I might have gotten a little bit over the top with washi. But then again, having thousands (not really, but way more than a hundred) washi tapes, it’s good that I use them. 🙂
As some of you know, I’ve loved writing letters ever since I was a kid (got my first penpals when I was 10 years old). I still love it now as an adult. However, for the past almost fifteen years, I didn’t write much at all. Until the last couple of years. Although writing “much” these years is to exaggerate. It’s been more of wanting to write than to actually write. This week I’ve slowly started to catch up with writing those long overdue letters.
This letter going out a couple of days ago, isn’t a regular letter though. It’s a pocket letter. A pocket letter is a letter sent in a pocket trading card protector (with nine slots). You fill the pockets with small cards, more or less decorated depending on how crafty your are. You can add some small crafty goodies, or tea bag or whatever in some of the pockets, and in one pocket you include a letter you’ve written. This concept was created by Janette Lane.
I’ll show you photos of my first outgoing pocket letter once I know it’s reached its recipient. Until then, here’s the envelope. I think I went a little bit over the top when decorating it. 😉 It’s sent via a Swedish pocket letter group on Facebook.
Last week I received this cool belated birthday card from my friend Sollan. 😀
So, now when Christmas (and New Year’s) is over – did you receive a lot of Christmas cards? Did you send any? I always send waaay more cards than I receive. This year as well, although I did receive more cards than usual. This bunch of lovely cards made their way to my mailbox, some within Sweden, some from other places around the world.
