A few days ago I received a packet of old photos from a gal in Fort Myers, Florida. They are interesting old photos that I have scanned and I will mail back to her shortly.
Included in the package was a unexpected gift. Artvelopes. She designed them to help keep letter writing alive! The process to make them includes drawing, copying, glue making, folding, glue application and packaging. I haven’t seen anything like them before.
I am a letter writer..imagine that! I have several friends that have refused to join the computer generation. I should write them more often. I try for one letter a month, but sometimes time just slips by. Sometimes they call and ask “Are you guys OK?”
Can you imagine opening your mailbox and finding an Artvelope inside? Pam takes decorating envelopes to a whole new level! She showcases some of her artwork on her blog. Spirituality 101: Introspection and Reflection ..check it out ..tell her Far Side sent ya over.
What was your last unexpected gift? During the Christmas Season perhaps we get all wrapped up in what we will buy. The last four unexpected gifts that I received were all homemade or gathered gifts..what were they? A jar of plum jelly, these Artvelopes, a box of Cyprus knees and a bag of catfish! :)
