Altered Mail Art From SANTA

 
There are rare, but unique opportunities to use my creative talents as a member of the Postal Service.  Like impersonating Santa to a couple of little, letter writing, girls on the rural mail route!  The route driver (Loucinda-- a good friend of mine) retrieved the letters, addressed "To: Santa" on her rounds one day and asked if I would write replies and create envelopes that looked like they traveled from halfway around the world.  But, of course! Happy to help out! 
I just left space for a real first class postage stamp in the upper right hand corner, because it needs postage to be delivered into a mail box.
The return address?  "North Pole", (zipcode) "00001"
 
A word of caution--- if you "try this at home", don't stamp "Air Mail" on the envelope unless you know your post office won't charge you $1.10 (Airmail) to mail a First Class domestic letter (currently 46 cents). I thought about this after I took artistic license with the rubber stamp!  Loucinda worked around that by having the envelope cancelled by her postmaster (boss) before delivering it herself (an official mail carrier).
It's good to be one of Santa's Helpers!
