outgoing mail: all that is gold does not glitter

Goodbye, “Standing Stones and Sacred Places of the British Isles: 2016 Calendar” and hello, brand-new envelopes for 2017! I have to admit that I spent a good portion of last year eagerly waiting for January 1 to roll around and give me an excuse to transform these pretty pages into something worth sending.

Now that time has come. From the ashes a fire shall be woken/new mail from old paper shall spring!

It’s been a while since I made calendar-page envelopes, as I’ve been experimenting with magazines most recently! Calendars are made from a thicker material that costs more to mail, but is also incredibly durable and perfect for long-overdue letters filled with tourist ephemera from Northern California.

You might recall that a friend of mine sent me some globe-themed washi tape as part of my wonderful haul of Christmas mail. I’m happy to have already put it to good use!

Just imagine what my local postal workers will think of these! I hope they brighten up somebody’s day! (And that the washi’s golden glimmer doesn’t lose its shine as the envelopes travel as close as PA and as far as Germany…)

  1. Such pretty envelopes! No better way to give last years calendars a new lease of life. Funny fact, when I was looking for a calendar for 2017, I looked for one that would make good envelopes for 2018 xD
