Mail Art!!

This is my mail art for the next swap on swap bot. I needed to do 10 and I finished today! I could have just done 10 envelopes all the same and been done, but I wanted to make it a bit more personal for the people who receive them. I took these pictures before I put any addresses on to protect them.



This is a recycled postcard and this girl likes postal stuff and vintage writing. This is going to California.



This is a recycled postcard and she likes vintage patterns. This is going to Sweden.




Another recycled postcard and she likes quilting and maps and traveling, so I combined them. This is going to CA too.






She likes vintage advertising and cats so I made an envelope out of a vintage ad! Her address is going from his mouth. It is going to Isreal.







This girl loves paisley so I made an envelope out of paisley paper and added some paper and fabric to it. This is going to Colorado.




This guy loves space and scifi and weird things so I redid an invitation and put some scifi and spacey things on it. This is going to B.C. I put his address on the white part.




This girl likes animals so I did a puzzle and glued it and them attached it to a board to make a handmade postcard. This is going to Maryland.




This is another handmade postcard I painted and then put on a turtle picture which I outlined in gold. She loves turtles! It is going to Illinois.





This handmade envelope was made with rose paper. She loves pink and green and shabby chic and this is going to Australia.





This handmade envelope is made with awesome paper. She loves design and neat stationary and this is going to Seattle.


I hope you enjoyed my parade of mail art!

I had fun making them and it makes it neat to personalize it a bit. What makes it exciting too, is that I am going to get 10 back! From all over the world and I have no idea where.

How cool is that?

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
