I like the back of this envelope better than the front.  Using up an old shopping bag from Eckersley's Art supplies.

Not joking.  Doing.
Hope you and our northern marsupial friends are well despite the blaring heat.  Or is that just here?

Actively think about this and that and about Mail.

Sometimes do this or that and occasionally do do Mail.

Earthling, this may be the last but certainly, it´s not the least welcome message to IUOMA you are going to receive. I’m a celestial mail artist living in a heavenly uncharted corner of the faraway universe called “Republik van Patland”. I would love to be the other end if you wish to trade mail art with a celestial mail artist.  If that is the case at the time your envelope should read as follows:

The Celestial Scribe
Terrene Embassy
Republik van Patland
Caixa Postal 461

I look forward to seeing a piece of yours in my terrene mailbox. I´ll do my homework after receiving your artwork. This is nothing less than a celestial promise.  I’m Patricio, Celestial Scribe & Republik van Patland Official Envelope Provider.
