Floral Mail Art

Last Friday I had an exam and got a surprisingly very high grade, so when I got back home I was in a rather cheery mood.
I picked up my watercolors and started doodling on an envelope. It had been a while since I last hand painted anything, and it felt really refreshing. It still doesn't have a recipient, but I still wanted to share it with you ♥
Some details:
What do you find yourself doing when you're happy?

Have a lovely day,

#postallyconnected pt 2

A little while ago, I started a project over on Instagram, that I called Postally Connected.
For my birthday I received Keri Smith's 'Everything is Connected', which is a book of postcards with fun tasks written on them.
Instead of filling them in and then send them, I decided I wanted to give the chance to have a bit of fun with them to someone else, and this is how the project started.

I sent 10 postcards to ten lovely girls, and today, I want to share with you the second batch of postcards that came back to me, to show you what a great work they did with them!

The first one is from Bernice, which is an incredibly creative gal! Our task was to draw a portrait of me as a superhero, and a portrait of her as a bad guy!
 I drew myself as SuperFab (which sounds sooo cheesy, omg) and I even have a Bunny-Signal à la Batman, while she drew herself as Bermean, so freaking cool!
 Next up, is from Jessica; her task was to decorate a 'public space' inviting people to contribute
 and it's so cool to have a token from Toronto Zine Library as I image in it like a very artistic and inspiring place, perfect environment for this kind of project!
 Lastly, I received Chomri's postcard as well! Her postcard had a blank sign she had to fill with a message of her choice, and let me say, she did it beautifully!
 I absolutely adore it; the message and execution are just great!
 So, thank you gals for joining and making this project special!
I can't wait to send more postcards out!

Much love,
ƒ.

the Postal Society 2.0

Hello everyone! As some of you may know, last year, alongside some friends, I founded a website called the Postal Society to create a community dedicated not only to finding new penpals, but also to have a better place to host swaps and challenges, and discuss common interests.

Lest year we had a network hosted on a platform, but I was very unsatisfied with the quality and the restrictions of it, so I decided to cave in and create a proper .com website for it!

It is finally ready and I'd love to share it with you all:


We're obviously still getting started but if would mean a lot if you could check it out!

See you there, I hope!
