I keep hoping that my mail art will reach everyone some day ;)

Next Sinterklaas seems achievable...

I always take pictures, so I know what I´ve sent to whom.

Comment by DianeKeys on February 26, 2021 at 3:34am

Oh no! I hope it arrives but good on you that you took photos. I am usually in too big of a hurry to send things to think of it. May it arrive before next Sinterklaas!

Comment by Yvonne Kettner on February 25, 2021 at 6:30pm

Oh, by the warning that there is no chocolate inside, I hoped that no one would open it, besides De Villo Sloan ;)

Did the warning help? I don´t know...

Comment by Yvonne Kettner on February 25, 2021 at 6:26pm

Thanks for yor compliment Diane.

This actualy was chocolate for "Sinterklaas", a Dutch holiday, aspecialy for children, where it is tradition to give a chocolate letter, preferably de first letter of your name. (besides other presents)

This was something new, not a letter, but two colors of chocolate to "play" with and make different motifs.

Unfotunately this mail art does not seem to have arrived ( like mor of my mail art)

Comment by DianeKeys on February 23, 2021 at 2:13am
