Alright, alright!!

cos-mo-post-al-an [koz-muh-postal-en]: adjective/noun
1. a person
who belongs to all the world; not limited to just one part of the world; can make their home anywhere in the world.
2. a person who believes fully that postage stamps and mail connect the world, regardless of where, from or to, they go.
3. the joyful experience of knowing you're a local because your mail made it to its destination

The postage stamp is truly wonderful. It can travel the world, experience the lives of a million different people, go through the doors of strangers; and never once lose sight of where it's headed.
Welcome to the land of cosmopostalan : travel, mail and words. It's a crazy little place in my corner of the woods; wherever that may be!

Sending Mail...

Destination: The Mail Box, MA. [U.S.A.]

My POSTAL PONDERING and subsequent outgoing featured piece (for today) belongs to a new penpal of mine.
My aim for the piece was to incorporate maps and travel into an envelope that will travel greatly to reach its location. I used an old car map of Houston for the envelope:

and decorated it accordingly:

I decided to add some of my handmade stationary and stamps:

To create a final piece of mail art joy and fun:

I hope my recipient enjoys this piece of correspondence!
