Exciting Envelopes

I love the internet, social networking and email – it’s all so fast and easy. However, for me, there’s nothing quite like getting post. I love it! So Β mix that feeling with the idea of receiving post from some of the best creatives in the world and you can just imagine; I’m like a kid at Christmas!

Auction 13 is well underway and exciting envelopes stamped with our 13 have been Β appearing. It’s a brilliant feeling and it gets better when the envelopes are opened – the postcards we’ve received have been amazing. They will be revealed soon so keep an eye on the twitter (@auctionthirteen) and blog.

Whilst I love what’s inside the envelopes, it’s interesting to see the outside too. The postcards have travelled across the world in some cases (even by pigeon apparently!) and the geek that I am, I like to see the different postal marks and stamps. Some envelopes have been personalised too – top marks for that! I love the personal touch:

Who else gets excited about getting post? Do you appreciates postage details? A few months back, Lestaret introduced me to a new world of mail art. Basically people just make things and send them to each other – sounds great to me! The IUOMA (International Union of Mail-Artists) website has nearly 3,000 members all creating and swapping. If I had more time it’s something I’d love to get involved with. Maybe I will, one day…

Until then, I’ll be busy with Auction 13 – don’t forget to follow us for more information on the creatives involved and the auction itself. Get saving your pennies to make sure you can bid!

    I love getting mail that’s a package and not a letter with any kind of official stamp – those make me worried! I used to swap letters with a friend just because we loved mail. I think I might need to post something to someone again…

      Glad I’m not the only one! Well, you’re always welcome to post things to me… πŸ™‚
