You might remember, a month and a bit ago - I signed up to take part in iHanna's annual mail art swap.
I shared my little pile of outgoing postcards here - now it's time to show you all the lovely stuff I got in return!
Up top, top left: a lovely large format postcard, painted and stitched, from Elin in Sweden
Top right: a fantastic reduction print card from my good pal TJ in the US of A - she also sent me a ton of ice hockey related goodies because she is lovely!
Bottom right: a gorgeous handpainted card from Holly Ann in the US - and with it, shown here to the left, a bonus card from her 6 year old daughter :)
Next lot - top left: "born to craft" - sounds good to me :) from Anne in the US
Top right: a super cute collage from Diane in the US - love that cheerful little raindrop! :)
Bottom left: a riot of colour from Denice - another one in America where most of my cards came from - love the bold black lines making the colours pop
Bottom right: a lovely fine line drawing by Ursula in Croatia - that little town looks really inviting
Last lot from the iHanna swap - I was very lucky and got all 10 cards back
On the left: a fantastic ink and watercolour sketch by Fanie in Montreal, Canada. I had actually spotted this "friendly tree" on Fanie's blog before the cards were all mailed out and had coveted this particular card in a comment there - so when she drew my address she was kind enough to send him to me :)
Top right: a card from our swap hostess herself, iHanna in Sweden - a cool collection of stamps on a "meta postcard"
Bottom right: such a cute, happy whale :) from Lis in the States
And last but certainly not least, this gorgeous beeswaxed postcard from Lorraine wasn't part of the iHanna swap at all, but I thought I'd share it on this post as it landed on my doorstep this weekend, and I love it!
Hopefully I'll have more mail art to share soon....
