Postage and Envelopes


Mailing out a few envelopes for Valentine card swaps put together by Lyndsey of The Stationery Place and Tara from The Pink Couch blog. This was my first time swapping Valentines that I actually had to hand make. It was a fun project and a great way to get me to start crafting. 

Envelopes were mailed out to Utah, South Carolina, Massachusetts, Washington, Minnesota, and to Canada. It was a nice thought that my cards would travel to places I've never been to. (^•^) And it was so fun to receive hand made Valentines in return. 

P.S., I'm working on those photos (^•^).
