I wonder if the US Post Office would deliver them?

Makes one long for letters on paper, does it not? Email is so ... bland, in comparison.

Those are so cool!! Thanks for the link. My husband is going to use it in his art appreciation class.

It's also making us want to create and print our own creative envelopes...if only we had the time.

SOooo right about email. This does make me want to decorate an envelope just to see if it can get delivered.
