New postage stamps also trigger learning. The new solar eclipse stamp has been released to coincide with the Great American Eclipse on August 21, 2017. The band will pass trough the contiguous US in a 70 mile stretch moving from west to east. Massachusetts won't have the full total eclipse, but we will get a partial sometime between 1:30 and 4:30 p.m.
I used pastels to color the backround of the envelope and drew a telescope for the address section. On the card I used a chalk marker, which was a little challenging, as it goes on clear and then turns chalk like. This definitely will take a little more practice.

A great little pressie came in the mail, courtesy of Fi.
Fi ordered me a return address stamp for my return address on my mailings. It came all the way from Malaysia. I love the postage stamps too, so pretty. I thought my favorite Lilly Pulitzer wristlet coordinated nicely.

Wishing you a day with a good wish, some mail, and surprises! Happy Mail Monday!
