Weekend letter writing, envelope decorating session

This past weekend I used some of my new birthday goodies to send out some decorated snail mail.  I was at it for hours -- this is what my work space looked like midway through:

I made most of the cards I sent out.  Here's what most of my homemade cards look like now, quite simple:

It's the envelopes I spent the most time on.  I wish I could show all of them, but I'm wary of putting my friends' addresses here for all to see.  So here's a sneak peek at parts of the envelopes instead:

Two of my birthday gift stamps are from Letter Writers Alliance.  The tea stamp came from Paper Source, and it's amazing.  All three rubber stamps are so great.

Later on I came across the blog Pushing the Envelope, which gave me a bajillion more envelope ideas.  I'm letting the ideas simmer  for my next mailing session...

Here's some inspiration from the blog:
