Pretty Postal Tropical Mail Swap

Oh my! It's been such a long time since I've hung out on these pages.

In truth, 2017 wasn't a very creative year... a bit of a hibernation after 4 craft books in 3 years, I guess! Oh well. I do hope to make more time for creative pursuits in the year ahead... starting with a brand new Pretty Postal Mail Swap!

(Have you joined us for a creative mail swap yet? It's a great push to make something beautiful yet practical and to share your art/craft with the world... or at least a few people somewhere out there!)

It's been a year since our last swap... so, we wanted to come back with something fun and cheerful and ever so bright. Get ready to channel your inner Carmen Miranda...


The Pretty Postal Tropical Mail Swap

The weather outside may be anything but balmy... filled with nasty winter weather - polar vortexes, bomb cyclones and extreme cold alerts - but wrapped in our woolies and nestled by the fire, we’re all set to take a mental beach break.

So, turn up the heat, turn on your favourite tropical tunes and join us as we go bananas for palm trees, pineapples & pina coladas!

Exchange vibrant mail with 2-4 other snail mail lovers from all over the world (or close to home). For Pretty Postal mail swaps, we want to see gorgeous decorated envelopes with (preferably) handmade cards inside. Paint, calligraphy, washi tape, cut paper... anything goes!

Sign up by January 28th to take part in all the tropical fun.
You can find full dates, details and sign-up info over on the Pretty Postal site.
