I have learned many things during the first half of 2014. One of those things is that Emma over at Em’s Den made herself a mail mascot named Sammy Snail, and another was that postage stamps are not the only stamps that look great on an envelope. Oh, I was also reminded that you can make your own stamps. These lessons are what led me to making Marsh Mailow.
From this month on (maybe) Marsh Mailow will show up on the mail I send.
Sometimes he’ll let someone know what’s in store for them.
And sometimes he’ll help camouflage the business envelopes I up-cycle.
Marsh Mailow may occasionally match the stationery I use (or at least try to).
And sometimes he’ll just look really, really random.
Because of the 4th of July though he was feeling a bit patriotic.
And then these make me feel like eating a s’more or three.
I have more ideas where these ones came from, including one where I make a new and improved stamp that doesn’t require me using a marker to fix his eyes. He’ll likely make more appearances in the future Hail the Snail posts, and he’ll definitely show up in my pen pals’ mailboxes starting this week. Now that’s what I call some sweet mail!
Sincerely, Kate ~!~
