A Few More Envelopes

I've been making a few more envelopes while watching the Olympics. I have a hard time sitting in front of the t.v. and just watching. I always feel like I am wasting time. Being the multi-tasker that I am, I've been folding and cutting, and doodling while watching. I do NOT, however, recommend using the sewing machine while watching speed skating...that leads to more swearing than sewing. So I learned I'd better do the sewing during the commercials.

Two envelopes mailed today.

Chinese New Year. I'm a little late getting these out this year. In progress, not finished.

Sometimes I send Mail

I don't always take time to scan or photograph everything I mail out. Sometimes I go in stages where I mail sometime every day, but not lately. I go in fits and starts, and sometimes I go on a binge of Mail Art and then I do a mass mailing. I like to have a stack of decorated envelopes on hand so I always have some ready in case I want to pop something into the mail, and am short on time. I don't like mailing plain envelopes!

Ephemera I sent out to a few folks.

Just fooling around with plain black envelopes while watching t.v.

Envelope made from a cover of one of my favorite (now defunct) magazines, PopLife.

Folded and stitched.

Made from scrapbook paper and some tickets stitched on.

Back of envy with stitched on bit from a catalog.
