Letter Writing month just around the corner

Well, it’s almost here “letter writing month”  and I’m all in so not only will friends and angels in disguise get something from me.   I also participate in mail Art.  Now what would that be or how does that look? Both activities are endorsed by the National Association of Letter Carriers.  The deadline for the Graceful Envelope contest I am sorry to say is in just a few days.  However, our Local Mail Art Project has another two weeks till it’s over and we display all our entries at a local venue.   No one is denied or censored. Someone will absolutely love your letter regardless of coffee stains, and not so perfect cursive.  Historically it binds families and we have a connection to the loved ones from the past.  No ordinary card produced by the hundreds but something priceless from the heart.  A very special surprise when it arrives at its destination.

found this when I googled mail art Lake Worth and many more. lol

We in Lake Worth were gifted with envelopes from around the world when we turned 100 and also received many from locals who participated.  AnnaMaria Windisch-Hunt gave free lessons impromptu at the Towers,  senior living at the LWAL , in summer camp,  now she is scheduled to do the same once more. The schedule *below where you can sit a spell and do some art all supplies provided. There is a silver mailbox at Common Ground Coffee above the piano, for those who do not have a forever stamp or lol envelope plus some pens and crayons.  It will be posted properly through the U.S. Postal system each afternoon and hand-canceled to boot by Patti and arrive at  ART Project  P. O. Box 46  Lake Worth Fl. 33460  (this is where your creative envelope should be addressed to. Unless it’s addressed to Grandma. Still not sure what is expected have a look at this link it’s from the reception we held during our centennial. Have some fun with friends gather around a table or join her at the mentioned venues.  It’s your turn to make someone else’s day.  Feel like writing a letter instead of decorating an envelope.  It’s all good.

*Tomorrow Friday 6 – 9 p.m.   At Common Ground Coffee House  14 S J street.              Walk-in, sit a spell and enjoy the comradery of like minded people. share ideas and create an envelope.  All supplies are provided.  Work on your own or do one together.  Nice night out  Evening on the Ave.   It might be a bit chilly.  Visit adjoining art galleries and come in inspired.  Extend your intimate evening in downtown Lake Worth’s hottest street.
