I think in total for the month of February I sent 36 pieces of mail. I tried to document both what I made and sent (I didn't keep up with that as good as I should have) and what I received in the mail. We are now in March, and I'd say I am still sending about 1-3 pieces of mail a week still. I really got into drawing envelopes, I am thinking this might happen on a grander and more thought out scale eventually. And one day I found a bag of googly eyes, and this amused me more than it probably should for a 26 year old adult. Sometimes I am easily amused.
Here are a few pieces of mail....
front and back of one of my favorite envelopes I drew (and it even made it through the INTERNATIONAL POSTAL SYSTEM which was the most shocking part)
This was probably my favorite envelope.
I haven't sent this one yet, but I think it'll be great. The return address will go on the girl's bow and the address between her eyes.
Some quiet encouragement.
Gone fishing, the address goes on the back of the bear.
Happy Valentines and what not, you know just the usual unicorns and dogs riding oriole birds type of greeting...
Some good things in small packages.
Clear envelopes... my mail man laughed at me when I asked him if he thought they'd make it through and his face said "no" but he only said "maybe". They arrived and were well received in a few days time.
Sent a lot of postcards, and made some mashups of my own postcards.
Sent some care packages to my grandparents.
Got some cool mail too, including a wood box that I've started storing my envelopes in.
