Smiles Sent Saturday~September 26, 2015

I'm finally getting back to mailing some fun mail:

This one was to a great aunt who really enjoys her county fair.  I've gone in the past, but didn't make the trip this year.  So,  I made a card with a photo I'd taken of her fair, and did this envelope-I thought the ribbon turned out pretty cute, and I really liked how all the stamps went with a fair-thing entered, etc.

I had to mail a couple brown envelopes for birthdays lately to include all I wanted  to send, but they dressed up nicely:

This one was based on the stamps-there were a couple I really wanted to use, then I picked a couple more to coordinate with the color. As you can see I tried to match the font on the Louisiana stamp in the name-just put a few of the letters in alphabetical order to show what it looked like. 

I used some washi tape I got on after Christmas clearance last year at Walmart.

I took this one into the Post Office and the clerk thought it was very pretty, hopefully the recipient did, too, I know she likes butterflies!  I'm enjoying mixing current and vintage stamps for extra postage.

 This is the back, here's a link to where I found the PDF to print the Butterfly Labels.

This was to welcome a new dog a family member got.

This envelope was enclosed in one of the brown envelopes, but would be cute for a mailed one, too.

The name “Smiles Sent Saturday” denotes my hope these things I mailed made the people who got them smile. 


  1. Nice work, Sarah! I'm sure everyone who received one of your beautiful envelopes was smiling broadly the rest of the day.


  2. The butterfly labels are beautiful - thank you for sharing that website - I've pinned loads from it!

    1. You're welcome-glad to help! Isn't it a great website?
