This time it went to Belgium, and I thought I'd send a nice poinsettia, or Christmas Star, per mail.
I thought it was fitting for the season.
Like last time, I cut the shape of the envelope in watercolour paper, which I folded once the drawing was done.
The only thing I was unable to control was the stamp.
They don't seem to have a lot of sensitivity for creative envelopes at the post office here: the woman just pasted the first stamp she got her hands on without even showing me first.
I think there was a football player on it; not very fitting.
I'm just glad she put an actual stamp on it, even if I had to insist to get it.
My creation arrived today appartently, so now I can show it here.
