Incoming and Outgoing Mail

I'm having fun with the Month of Letters so far.  Keeping my fingers crossed that I can stay on track with it!

Here's what came in the mail yesterday from a penpal that I actually met through LetterMo, Ria, and have kept in touch with over the past year:

The front of the envelope is covered in washi tape, and it's really a fun idea.  I have a lot of washi tape that I have bought because I liked the designs, but then I never know what to do with it.  This could be a possibility!!

And here's today's outgoing mail: a postcard to a LetterMo contact (a new one this year, just basically a postcard swap), and a reply to the above letter.

As you can see, I got a little creative with the washi tape on the reply letter (creative for me, anyway).  I searched for something suitable to put in the lower left box that I created with the tape, but I couldn't find anything or think of anything.  One of these days I will throw all caution to the winds and just doodle something there!


  1. A very lovely wash envelope. I'm surprised it arrived intact.

    Your envelope is perfectly balanced. Remember the power of three and negative space. Doodling is fine too. Instinct is intuition. Notice how the bold color repeats itself three times? In your label, the image below it and the colors on the stamp? Your envelope is perfect!

  2. Come on! It's that time again.

    Guess what reminded me of you. :)
