Mailman Love

I know, strange post title, but really, there’s a lot of love for the mailman this time of year.  Everyone is happily awaiting Valentines.  Lots of crafters have already gotten into the theme (gotta love that stuff, right?).  You can tell that kids just love the mailman and what’s better than getting something in the mail?

I had gotten these tees for cheap last season and couldn’t wait to make them fun!  I love the postcard tee.  Mostly because I used my Grandma’s vintage mini ric-rac to ‘cancel’ the stamp.  Even better yet, my Grandma is a retired Postmaster!

And what’s Valentines Day without conversation hearts?!

  10. those are soooooo cute. i made some cute little postcards like that, ric rac scribbles and all. they were supposed to be gifts for my boys for christmas but i never finished them. they would take all of half and hour to finish but i can’t seem to be motivated these days. anyways you have inspired me to get to it.
