Fish and Cat Mail Art

I received a mail art from my favorite artist Nasya Kopteva of FishMailArt a few months ago.

Nasya

She’s an artist from Russia, and her pieces are gorgeous! She’s has Instagram so you can follow her there, see her lovely artworks and photos. It’s @nasyakopteva.

And here’s another update from my crafts. After 4 years, I started doing pyrography or wood burning again.

Wood burning tools aren’t available where I live, so, I only use a regular soldering iron. You can just imagine the effort I put into that. I am planning to buy a proper wood burning tool when I’ve already saved enough money. It’s not that cheap and it’s only available overseas. Any ideas what kind of pyrography tool I should buy?

A Walk In My Garden pt. 1

Here’s the first part of my ‘A Walk In My Garden‘ posts. I got a lot of postcards, letters, cards, and such this January. Thanks to Swap-Bot, Postcrossing and to the lovely people from Couchsurfing. I was thinking of how I will blog about it since I really got so many. And, I’ve decided that I will do it per category– postcards, letters, swaps, etc. So, first off, batch one of postcards.

Let’s start with this yummy postcard from Brooklyn, USA sent by Caroline.

So, that’s the first batch of postcards that I got this month. I’ll probably divide the postcard posts into four. Since, I don’t want picture heavy posts. We have really poor internet connection here in our country. And I still want my countrymen- Filipinos to be able to see my blog posts without a problem or without the hassle. Ha-ha! Till the next post!

Postal Love: Postcards from Saudi Arabia & Spain

Ilde from Couchsurfing, sent me two postcards from his travels. He was in Bahrain when he told me that he was going to send me a postcard. I actually didn’t expect to receive two postcards from him! Thank you, Ilde! Here are the postcards that he sent me.

Pretty Saudi Arabia. It’s actually one of the places that I want to go to. Don’t you just love the pretty handwriting on the right side?

This is one unique postcard! I thought it wasn’t even a postcard. Pretty cool don’t you think? Looks like the ones that you get from books and magazines.

Lapis Lazuli colored stamps. The color for royalty and wealth.
