Hello Charlotte. The address booklet has come out much better than I thought it would partly because the envelopes themselves have proved good material to work with. My box is also on the large side although I have come up with a second one, this morning, which is smaller and might be better. Some people do prefer to keep the envelopes and their contents together; it is just another way of doing things.
Hi Charlotte, thank you for the postcard collage of colorful leaves - it arrived last week. The leaves are just starting to fall here, too. We may see the season change after all. I've not been very active here lately, but am glad for your mail art, thanks again!
I have learnt from experience that addresses, and hunting for addresses, can be a huge drain on time and patience but If you start a list at the beginning of a project and keep up with it, it works out OK. I'm happy to do it for the group . . . nice to make a useful contribution and it keeps me out of mischief . . .
