Literally, all over the place!
Here is some outgoing to Global Pen Pal (You can follow her on Instagram: Global Pen Pal--that is if you are already following me: Lostart_revived ;-) ha, ha. ). I think the stamps amounted to $3.02. I always wonder what the mail system does with this type of mail...Do they manually count up all the postage? I forgot to show you what I enclosed (besides the letter). The die cut of the globe, was actually a package of paper globes-- 20 or so in a package. So I included a package of paper globes. I thought she might find some interesting uses for them. I also found a nice blank note book (think traveler's notebook size) with a vintage map cover.
* I met up with Global Pen Pal over the weekend in DC and she told me that there was not a single cancelation on any of the stamps when it arrived ! Do you think they were respecting my work of art?
I believe Global Pen Pal's mission is to write someone from every part of the globe... I keep pestering her with mail from Virginia! I remember the first time I wrote her (I think I made a blog post about it, but I couldn't find it.) that I wanted to be SURE that she knew that my letter was from Virginia and that VIRGINIA was accounted for in her mission.
The top photo was the cover of the shaped letter. You could do this for any state or country you live in. I basically just downloaded a map of the state of Virginia and glued it to some card stock paper, and then cut it out, along with a few sheets of writing paper.
Here is a another picture of the letter. And oh, the envelope, that I MADE SURE had some map pictures of Virginia. Sheesh... Do you think that she got the message that Virginia had responded to her mission? Silly me.
Snail Mail can be FUN, so think about it, and send out some really fun mail!
Happy Snail Mailing,
