the best mail day yet!

Today I received 11 envelopes in my mail box for our Mail Art swap - yes, 11! The stack was this high:

I received 4 envelopes from Barbara DeLisle, 4 from my new local friend Susan Stewart, one from Monica Smith, and one each from Teri Calia and Jo Ann Reichert -joining the other three I had already received from both of them, hooray! Three of Teri's envelopes arrived in 3 days and the one that arrived today took a week. Two of Jo Ann's envelopes arrived in 3-4 days, one took a week and the one that arrived today took 10 days!! (mail early!)

In my mailbox November 10, 2010
I came across an interesting website today called Postcrossing, a postcard crossing/exchanging project. It looks quite intriguing and I have bookmarked it to join later. One thing that caught my eye was a post on their blog about how the Mail is sorted. Since we are in the middle of this swap with the sorting of mail so relevant to our project, I thought you might like to take a look at this post and video on Mail Sorting. The video is really very interesting & funny, take a look if you have time.

I will be back soon with photos and updates on Barbara, Susan, JoAnn & Teri as all of their mail art pieces or safely with me now!

hhmmmm.... I think the one I sent last week must have taken a detour. You should have two from me but I see you have the first one and not the second. The third and fourth are sitting here waiting for me to mail them.

As of today Marianne, I only have one envelope from you. So far, a delay in delivery of these Mail ART envelopes seems typical; a week to 10 days is not uncommon! I should receive your 2nd one in the next few days -check back! I'll list in as received on the sidebar : )) thanks, lenna

All of the mail art looks Fantastic! Mine are going in the mail tomorrow (all four). I just posted a quick view of them on my blog. Thank you so much for the fun swap! :)
