It's Friday and my weekly goal of spending some time art journaling has been accomplished. Two efutos complete! I enjoyed searching through my old stash of paper and combining my favorites to make these lovely, mixed media handcrafted envelopes. julie hamilton, artistically afflicted I had even more fun organizing all of my paper.Lots of old treasures re-discovered.I am amazed at some of the obscure places I have  found wonderful, patterned paper.Start looking around~ it's everywhere! julie hamilton, artistically afflicted The plan was to get rid of just a wee bit of paper ~to make room for more, but truth be told, I didn't get rid of one single piece (although it is nicely color coded now). Instead,I have decided to recycle it into these pretty paper packs. julie hamilton, artistically afflicted I like to share and if you promise you will put it to good use and make one of your very own envelopes, then I would love to send one your way. julie hamilton, artistically afflicte One of these efutos is accounted for and being sent out to the lovely Bethania Lima. Bethania is a fellow designer and friend. She is an active commentor, always positive and enthusiastic. She is a great contributor in our community and her design work is beautiful too! The other efuto is homeless, but could be coming your way. All you have to do is say hello. Are you interested in spreading some mail art love? I am loving this concept and plan to spend some time this weekend exploring the online world for others who do the same.I am hoping to start a series Stamped with Love showcasing others who are also inspired by this.Email me at jules@bollah.com or leave a comment if this interests you. I would love to link to others and show your work on my blog! I will have more info, and of course efutos, here next Friday. If you havent already checked out the online directory The Little White Book of Surface Pattern Designers then you must. All created by efutos! Check out the new blog too. It's going to be good with lots of pattern and illustration activity. Have a great weekend.
