It’s less that two weeks until the big swap Sunday for the Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap! That means it’s time to mail for everyone involved, and boy, are the envelopes rolling in. As of Saturday I had received 120 envelopes! I’ve got my fingers crossed that I’ll meet my goal of 250 participants this year. It’s looking good!
And the envelopes are pretty amazing this year too. I’ll share a few of my recent favorites here with you today…
Lynn created some bright, happy doodles. I loved how the hand-cancelled stamp matched perfectly.
Judith encourage us to liberate our art, or our cat, whichever suits! I think I’ll stick to the art, Judith. My cat is an indoor cat. 🙂
A gorgeous, hand-drawn envelope from Melody encourages me to write. Isn’t this an adorable little mouse? I’d write back if I got to see more of him!
Suzette created a wonderful message in her envelope art. I didn’t want to open this one, for fear of messing it up, but there was a little message inside the envelope, too! Payoff! Not to mention her gorgeous postcards…
I love it when people re-use things! Meredith was one of many who re-used the Moo packaging her postcards came in. She decorate the envelope and the sleeve too. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a photo of the inner sleeve… mostly because I didn’t know it was decorated until just now. It was like a secret surprise! Gorgeous!
Some shimmery flowers in rich colors decorated Evelyn’s envelope…
Sheila tempts me to warmer climes with her palm tree. Which echoed the art on one of her postcards. Very cool! Sheila also sent some extra postcards for my helpers. NICE!! They will appreciate them on swap day!
I saw Barbara‘s envelope on Instagram before she mailed it. I couldn’t wait to get this gorgeous envelope. I just love the soft colors! Don’t forget to use #liberateyourart on social media, and find each other!
Finally, Valerie from Germany always sends me a big, decorated envelope. Her envelope usually has an extra little surprise in it. This year it was a little covered notebook and bookmarks. Fun!
You know what’s really cool, the folks at my UPS store even recognized her as one of the past participants. When you decorate an envelope, many people get to enjoy your art along the way. I imagine these envelopes bring lots of smiles, as they go from you to me.
And we’ll bring more smiles as we Liberate our Art as postcards! Not long now!
