About Me

I first discovered Pocket Letters in 2016 on Janette Lane's website www.pocketletter.com. I loved the idea of penpals via craft and have become active on her website since. Also into sustainability, so love recycling. Have made PLs using Travel Brochures, Postcards, Cereal Box, etc. In 2017 made 5 Christmas themed PLs using previous years Christmas cards, cutting out the cutest pics from the cards and incorporating them into the PL. Worked a treat! Love experimenting with Mixed Media, using the Gel Press, watercolours, stamping. Making lots of cards for birthdays and special occasions.

We have a gorgeous Rhodesian Ridgeback, she is 10yrs old. She is our baby. A gentle soul. Always hungry for food. Sleeps alot, but when its time for a walk, she wakes up instantly and is all excited.

Comment: Wow, what unique MailArt! How did you cut such precise hexagons? A very cool idea for a hexagon folder/ATC holder. I like the colors (purples & blues) and the Kimberley Coast sounds quite fascinating.
Response: Thank you AmyMarie. I used https://incompetech.com/graphpaper/hexagonal/ to create the hexagon shape. Use 5cm size hexagon shape to get the shape. Hope that helps.

Comment: Thanks for this beautiful PC! I actually received 2, as the backing had totally separated from the front. I am amazed it reached me. I suggest you use double stick tape or Adtech Crafter's tape to put two shiny surfaces together. I love the scones recipe and the antique spoon as well as all the pretty cups! What is your favorite jam to put on them? Your PC brightened my day! Hugs from Alaska, Sherry
Response: Hi Sherry, so lucky that you got the PC whole! So sorry. Must have been the medium I used. Yes, the shiny part must be a problem. I will know for next time. Love strawberry jam on scones! Thank you for rating.

Comment: My favourite was the Raspberry ATC :) It's so nicely done! Very nice ATCs as per usual Mary! Thank you and it sounded like you had a really lovely time you had with your friends :)
Response: Thank you again. I so enjoy ATCs. It blends in well with Pocket Letters. I try and create ATCs with different mediums and styles.

I have it hanging in my room for inspiration. maybe I will hold a holiday card shaker swap or something once the website lets me post things again!
Response: Thank you Rebecca! The Holiday card shaker swap sounds like a great idea. I love the way you made your shaker cards.
