Looks grand. I'll be looking forward to receiving it.

On another note, we seem to have a major mail delivery problem here in Atlanta. I sent a trial envelope out on Jan 20 (to see if a water soluble ink could make it through the system as an address), and it has not been delivered as of today. So, the rest of the envelopes on list 2 are with a permanent ink, and they went out yesterday. All were hand cancelled at the PO. I'd be interested to know when they arrive (assuming they do).

Hi,

I am three hours south of you.  I finally got to use my MicroGlaze.  That should do the trick.  Interesting, the area that I glazed has a sheen to it; the rest of the envelope does not.  Oh well; now I know.
Cheerfully,

Oh noooo, bless your heart.  Another IRL friend recently got over it and explained to me exactly what it feels like.  I had NO idea, Erica.  I am SO glad to read you are mending.  Still, rest, take care of you for there is only one of you my dear.

Cyber hugs,

These are hitting there destinations. Hopefully not to big of a spoiler for our international folks! ;)

I practice some letter locking with this exchange. If your not familir with it, its a technique of closing and sealing a letter into its own envelope. And sealing it either with paper from the letter, thread/string/hair!, or a wax seal

Heres one of my favorites from Youtube. Catherine De Medici was very tricky with her spiral locks. No surprise there 😋


Hope everyone enjoyed. I know I certainly did receiving all your beautiful handiwork!

Thank you Erica for putting this together. Hope you are feeling better

Thank you @Lyric ! Iím finally better. Almost 100%. I lost 14 pounds! (I can take the loss but ugh.) The symptoms were mild - it was the fatigue and no appetite that made it difficult to do anything. Anyway - I appreciate your thoughtful message!  :-*

@Aries M These look AMAZING! I did letterlocking for another exchange. It was so fun. But these look absolutely stunning! And your calligraphy looks awesome! Well done! So happy you shared.  :-*

I was one of the lucky ones to receive a letter locking exchange envelope.  I absolutely loved it!  All of the envelopes from everyone were wonderfulÖ. And I actually received three of them on Valentines Day!!!  Thank you to all.

Laura and Grace,

Thank YOU for the lovely exchange items that you shared.  The envelopes are stunning.  Yaw'll have got to tell me where to find such lovely envelopes to add to my stash.   8)

It's always so cool to receive something via "Royal Mail".  I feel special  :-*:)

Erica, I'm so sorry to hear this. I hope you are fully recovered and feeling stronger. Your envelope came back to me, so it's should be en route again after today! Take things slow. <3

Thank you! I am mostly better. Some silly symptoms seem to want to keep popping up. But feeling much better overall.
Iím sorry the envelope was returned! What a disappointment. And hassle.  :'(
Thank you for all your lovely exchanges!
