"Mailing" Birthday love

Last year, when a close friend of mine got excited about the mail art that I was receiving, I decided to put together a "mail-art starter-kit" for him for his birthday.  
Of course the primary gift was the Good Mail Day book, but there were also envelopes, glue sticks, paper, stickers, labels, ephemera and sooo many more goodies.  

It was a no-brainer on how to wrap these gifts.  I wanted to make them look like they had arrived by mail, even though I would be delivering them in person.  So, I got out my kraft paper, old stamps, linen twine and my postmark stamp to include his birth date and time of the party. 

As you can see this was almost exactly a year ago that I delivered these packages.  Now tomorrow, we are off to celebrate him again...with unlimited mimosas at this dreamy little restaurant that we have come to love; Mari Vanna's.
