Birthday Mailart Exchange 2018

The mailart group I belong to hosted a birthday mailart exchange last year.  My birthday was in January.  I received a beautiful mailart and goodies from Connie.


The birthday of the person I stitched for is in December so hers was the last to be received.  It was my last stitchy finish for 2018.  The design came from the limited edition kit called Flowers by Lizzie Kate.  I adapted colors to the favorites of the recipient.

Fabric: 28ct Pink Linen
Fibers: DMC floss
Embellishments: Buttons
Sent to Shelley in CA

Until next time....

What beautiful mail art! It has been years since I have seen this. Back in he day where Cici taught us how to do the mail art. I do not think I could do it now...it has been way too long ago.

Meari - it's good to see you posting again! I just love the mail art you do. How do you keep the post office from destroying it during the mailing process?

Meari,

I've missed your updates and enjoyed catching up. The mail art is so cool! The Asian charts are absolute beauties!

What cute mailart! And great goodies too! I think what amazes me the most, though, is that the mailart actually gets through the mail and gets delivered - especially in one piece and not all ripped up.
