mail, belated

^some good letter writing/reading music for you. i adore this girl and this song. LISTEN.

recently, a friend told me of a program that edits out addresses and it takes a lot less time than my old one. so hopefully i'll be posting more and more mail! for now though, here's some recent outgoings that i'm quite in love with and proud of myself for making :] -

^a reply to miss zoe, with parrots in tow.

^to the lovely shona in england, one of my favorite envelopes ever.

^reply/thank you to a wonderful new correspondent.

^sending cari a twist on the envelope, with the flaps in front where the address and stamp go.

^to one of my favorite pen-friends, miss carolee.

^note to a friend i haven't spoken to in a while.

^handmade postcard to my friend kaylyn.

^reply to bruno in brazil, envelope made using a gift bag i purchased with tons of cancellations on it.

^the circle lady to a new favorite correspondent, ashley.

^handmade postcard to one of my best friends.

^two postcards, two sisters, one artist. i sent these little gems to micaela and marianne.

^i made these two envelopes out of coffee bags i found while shopping one day and thought they'd make interesting envelopes! for the lovely and talented both, miss patty and melody.

^to amazing micaela, i had so much fun making all these postcards and probably will continue to do so with all this newfound cardboard i've got.

more mail to come soon!

also coming soon: preview of my new shop, a poem i recently wrote, more photography, artists features, and more!

love you all, thanks once again for being beyond amazing. <3
