Happy Mail From Shelley

Two days ago I received my first piece of "mail art" from Shelley. She learned from my blog that I have been sick for awhile with Pneumonia and she contacted me for my address because she wanted to send me something to cheer me up (How sweet is that????). I have never spoke with her before, she is a complete stranger to me! My heart was touched that someone would do that for me. When I got the envelope I was amazed at it! She did such a great job I didn't want to open it (even just opening the top with a knife). Inside was 11 pages of a hand written letter, and it was wonderful. First of all, I haven't received a hand written letter in years - how refreshing it was to receive one from her. She is a great letter writer and kept me thoroughly entertained! Thank you Shelley for your mail art and lovely letter was very much appreciated. I am working on sending you one back!
Hugs to you and your family!
The ART of Hand Letters has risen again! Yay!
Happy Creating Everyone!

Your first mail art???? I live for my mail art trades/swaps. You touch so many people with your caring words. So glad Shelley brightened your day!

What a wonderful gift you got here. Eleven pages? Gosh, I never wrote that much to my husband when we were dating long distance!

Hope you are feeling better by now. Are you?

Hi Freebird;
I am feeling much better now. I am up and moving around anyway. I know I can't over do it though. I am on two inhalers which I have gotten down to once per day.
Thanks so much for asking!
