Good Mail Day


There aren't many books in the US about mail art, which is unfortunate because everyday mail can be so rad (^•^), especially when you put some effort into it. So, since I'm so into mail at the moment ^^, thought I would share a book that I recently added to my library: Good Mail Day! by: Jennie Hinchcliff & Carolee Gilligan Wheeler who also happen to have a blog about mail: goodmailday. Hope you get to mail someone this week! xo

 All photos by me.



  1. There's passion, there's will, there's expression. And I also believe there are no reasons, just like in art!

  2. Golly, I love this book! I totally stumbled across it by accident in a bookstore, having never heard of it before. I bought it, and as previously mentioned I love it :)

  3. OMG! This book looks AAAMAZZING! I must track down a copy! Great book share :)

  4. awwww the book is so pretty!
    I want one for myself :(

  5. The pages of this book seem splendid. I must say that I like much the universe of the MailArt. That is a happiness to receive beautiful envelopes, pretty stamps, beautiful calligraphies. Creativity to be offered with a simple envelope : all is source of pleasure in the MailArt !

  6. Ohh what a pretty book! I'm really into snail mail these days, too. I haven't done much to the envelopes because the post office already thinks I'm a bit strange for always sending out international mail. I'm thinking about hand-carving a stamp to decorate the envelope. :]

  7. Kira: That is a beautiful way of expressing it :) love it!

    Felicia:Glad you have it and like it too. We should have more books on the subject for fans like us in the USA.

    Jenna: Hope you can find a copy. It's a nice one to have...and it's in English :) most books on the subject are from Asia, which have gorgeous work and photos, but just not readable for someone unfamiliar with a foreign language.

    Silkybow: ^^ glad you like it. Nice to have you here, thank you for your visit :) x

    Boheme Circus: Oui, I agree with you 100%! xo

    Sewon: You must create a stamp ^^ that would be awesome! I'm sure your new post office will get used to you soon enough :) They will find it nice to have such pretty mail come though their office besides the masses of computer generated mail :) x


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
