Made With Love: Mail Art!

Hello dear readers, and welcome Freckled Nest Fans (i know you are all checking in from her giveaway right now) :)  Just FYI: for more giveaway fun, today is the LAST day to enter my sponsor giveaway!  There are 8 gorgeous prizes available for one winner.  Take a sec and enter your name in the fun.  Well, I hope you had a wonderful week and have a restful weekend ahead of you today.  Despite my ever expanding pregnant body and the mounting stress of being WAY behind in my schedule for getting ready for my craft show in 3 weeks, I had some truly soulful moments of connection and creativity that I wanted to share with you.  As my 3 year old son loves to say for no apparent reason, "Ta-Da!" It's my first post from my Made With Love mail art project with three amazing creations sent to me by some incredibly talented and beautiful souls.  I am so excited about this project.  If you are new here, click HERE or on the button that says MADE WITH LOVE, on the Right Sidebar for more information.

Now on to the loveliness...
There are no rules for what you send in the mail art project, just that it be something you created that is intended to lift and encourage the recipient's spirit!  I have to say, nothing lifts my spirit more than beautifully decorated envelopes sitting in my mailbox.
Love this sweet Creative Soul and her pink and blue hair! Thank you so much Nessa! She is just lovely and now sitting on my shelf reminding me to believe in myself.

This sweet little collage was made by Karenann.  I love vintage illustrations used in artwork, and the mother and children was a truly sweet touch.  Thank you dear girl, I cant wait to add it to my art journal that I work in for my kiddos.

This one was sent to me by the lovely Bonita Rose.  She made this fun and gritty little card and included this incredible vintage crochet scrap.  You have no idea how happy this made me!  I collect vintage scraps like this for use in my artwork, and this one will have a special meaning to me when I decide to use it.  Thank you Bonita, this was really special!

What a wonderful way to celebrate the end of a week, with friendship.   I cant wait for you three to get your mail art from me!  If you want to connect with fellow creatives, give and receive encouragement to each other to keep following our creative dreams, join my Mail Art Project!  It's simple and fun, and I will feature all the art that I receive on my blog.  Have a wonderful day everyone!
