Last week Catherine Calvetti, a friend I've met through blogging, sent met some fun mail. Pictured above is the plastic bottle that she transformed into a mailing vessel and filled it with artsy things that she cleared out of her studio. I waited a week to open it as I thought it would be fun to shoot a live Facebook video so we can open it up together.
Before we get to the contents of that bottle, I want to share a few photos of where I was hanging out. Each week, I head over to the ocean on Fridays. It has been part of my commitment to relax and take care of me.
I love the rocky coastline of Maine. I find it visually stunning over the long stretches of sandy beaches.
Stacks of rocks remind me of how I need to continue to look at balancing all the various aspects of my life.
I'm in awe of the various colors, textures, and shapes.
Catherine's note in the bottle touched my heart. I'm feeling grateful for the opportunities that I have to connect with people from around the world through blogging, Facebook, my website, and the Sharing Circle and VIP Lounge.
To see what Catherine tucked inside, swing by my Facebook page to view the video.
I hope this post inspires you to surprise someone with some fun mail art. Catherine sure did make my week!
