February is the International Correspondence Writing Month, and I'll be joining this project for the first time this year. The goal of InCoWriMo is to write a letter a day for the month of February. And not just any kind of correspondence, it must be handwritten. That means more reasons to use my dip pens, fountain pens and bottled inks!

Liberate Your Art


My postcard order from overnightprints is already on it's way to me. I'll be sending them out for InCoWriMo in February and Liberate Your Art in March. Kat runs the LYA postcard swap and this will be my fourth year joining. Visit her site for more details and to join the fun. She needs to receive your postcards by March 12.

More reasons to write come with two more projects:

The Eduardo Munez Letter Project They are "looking for letters, particularly drawn envelopes, mail art and plain envelopes - not postcards. Most importantly the letters must be addressed to Mr Eduardo Munez." Visit their website for more details.


Letters to Anywhere The creator of this projects says, the goal is "to let others in on the places of our lives, how they've affected us, and how we've connected to these places that don't even exist to most of the world."


wishing everyone a good mail day!

  4. More wonderful work and lovely post, Juana. I love all that I learn from you. Exciting! :) Like Wanda, I LOVE the sheet music as the background for your illustration. I've really been wanting to grab some old worn out books to start sketching on. My list of "I want to do"...never ending. lol

I will follow the links you have posted immediately as I also like it to write and how you have described it, they are great prompts. Your envelope is phantastic!

  8. Oh, this is fun, Juana! I've been seeing more projects, like these, for encouragement to write more hand written letter, cards and revive snail mail... VERY inspiring! In these digital days, something real in the post box warms the heart! Happy Days ((HUGS)) P.S. A tiny thing is in the post for you! ;)
