envelope project


Morning all! I just found out about a fun little project happening over at Meet Me At Mikes - the Envelope Project. It works like this:

* Send a decorated envelope to Meet Me At Mikes with a few cute little papery or crafty things inside it. Be sure to add your address on the back.
* Your envelope will be displayed in the Meet Me At Mikes shopfront window. They will take all the things out of your envelope and take a photo of what they receive each day.  They will upload that daily image to Flickr.  They will keep the project going for six weeks.
* At the end of that period they will draw one random envelope : and send that person ALL THE THINGS they received in the mail!  Every single thing.

Yay how much fun! I stuffed my envelope with a selection of my Little Beehive greeting cards :)
If you'd like to take part in this super fun project, head on over here and get the details.

P.S. One of the illustrators whom I admire very much, Ingela.P Arrhenius, has joined in the fun all the way from Sweden! You can read her blog post about it here.
