A very quiet day at work last week allowed me to finally finish the giant stack of envelope blanks I had printed some time ago. I had an assembly line of envelope shapes, glue, and eventually, tape. I think I sometimes go a little overboard with tape, but I would rather the envelopes stay closed than fall apart in the process. I have found that I enjoy envelopes made of colored paper much more than those of white paper. It makes the letters I send much more noticeable without requiring much effort on my part. Not that I mind the effort, but sometimes, I just don't have the time.
This is my outgoing mail for today. I love the very simple geometric design I put on the envelopes. It adds a touch of class to them without being too overpowering. I still have some 10-12 letters to write, and I think I will continue this design.
I have even thought of putting the design on the paper I write on. I really should try that before the idea slips my mind completely.
I think I'll add a full set of these envelopes in the Mini Mondrian contest. Oh yes... many more goodies will be going to the winner. Have you sent in a postcard yet? I received 1 entry yesterday from Adam.
And as with most of the letters I am sending out - I want to apologize. It is taking me far too long to reply right now due to my Phantom Elbow Pain. I believe I have found the source of it, and have taken measures to deal with it. Bear with me, folks... I will get replies out as soon as possible!
