Snail Mail Watercolor Card and Paint Party Friday


Snail Mail Watercolor Painting for Paint Party Friday

Hello Friends!! I’ve officially moved to this blog and I’m super excited about it! I’ve been painting and getting all my products in order for my Sept. 27th Launch for 9th&Mayne. Yep, I’m finally doing it….after weeks of preparation and stalling (You’d think I was over the fear of putting myself ‘out there’ but no. It still lingers in the back of my mind, like an inner demon. grrrrr) and lots of chocolate, I’m ready to open shop.

I’ll keep you updated over the next couple weeks. To receive updates and discounts, sign up for my weekly newsletter in the sidebar.


Meet Mr. Snail Mail, he’s a cute little fellow and loves to deliver mail. I loved painting this one! It came to me in the car, I think, after chatting with a friend about how much I miss sending letters and cards to family and friends. So, I sketch it out and painted it, I really love the way he turned out.

This is a printed copy of my watercolor illustrations on a blank card, using The Printer. He’s in the 9th&Mayne Etsy Shop.

Check out other Paint Party Friday participants…so very talented!

  2. Ohhh, this is soooo cute! What a great idea! A good reminder to everyone that we need to slow down, and take time to write someone we can’t reach by email or FB! I have some old aunts who would appreciate a letter! Thanks! Patsy from HeARTworks and papemelroti

    1. Thanks Patsy! Yes, I would love for the world to slow down and send a note. Our poor Post Office would benefit a lot from that.

    1. Thank you Minnemie! You don’t want to know how long it took to come up with that name…naming a biz is harder than it looks, especially for an over-thinker like me. :)

  3. so adorable! and i know what you mean… as wonderful and convenient email is, i wish more people still used snail mail! it’s so wonderful to open the mailbox and have more than bills and junk mail!

    good luck with your shop!

  4. Oooh, your Mr. Snail mail is so cute, Kristin. I miss getting real letters, too. My aunt is the only one who still writes letters to me. I hate all the junk mail that fills our mailbox, but I understand that that advertising pays for the postal service or a good part of it.

  5. He’s a cutie. Congrats on your new website! And that fancy smancy printer that I covet, LOL. I read that whole post and was all excited for you like it was just now happening.

    1. Thanks Melisa! I love my printer…I went a little over-board on it but at least it’ll last for a long, long time!. :)
