Happy Weekend!

 

I'm so glad that week is over, it wasn't nice being back at work after the Christmas break (but I least I had the few days in between Christmas & New Year off - first time in 14 years!).  I don't like January/February & can't wait for spring to come but this time of the year I feel is always a time for reflection & keeping positive (sometimes easier than others lol) :o).
Today I'm sharing another Pocket Letter I made this time it's a nautical theme, I do like making these but I'm did having a little break cos I had a couple of swaps where I didn't actually receive a pocket letter back which was a bit disheartening especially as they're quite time consuming to make (fun though!). Just in case you haven't come across Pocket Letters you can find some info HERE.

This really is fabulous Tracey and a real labour of love too. It must have been so disheartening not to have got a swap back. I have taken part in a couple of card swaps and had the same disappointment, so I don't participate any more. xx

I had never heard of pocket letters. How intriguing. You've completed a fab pocket letter pack. I use the baseball card sheets for my Artist Trading Cards (ATC) cards. This would be a fun way to exchange ATCs and be a penpal too.

So glad you joined us at Morgan's Artworld.

Tracey this is fantastic, I have to confess I have never done a pocket letter, but this has tempted me to maybe try.
Thank you for the lovely comment x

Wow! love this nautical themed pocket letter Tracey… especially love the ship and map… and every pocket is so beautifully decorated. So much detail goes into these… wish I had the time to do one… maybe later in the year!
Hope you've settled back into work now... always horrid going back to school or work after the holidays!
Big hugs, Sue B xx

This is beautiful! I too am addicted to Pocket Letters. This looks great. It is a labor of love. So sorry that you have encountered some flakers! I've only been doing PL's since October and have come across just one flaker, but still, I understand how frustrating it can be. Don't get down on yourself and continue to create! Thank you for linking up with us at leinzlovetearbearschallenge.blogspot.com!
