The 'Who is Eduardo Munez?' grand opening evening

Do you remember the envelopes I sent in that would be featured in a film, 'Who is Eduardo Munez?' ?

Well, most of the filming is complete, and Ruth Tapp and the EM crew held a ceremony in November where all the letters (500+) were opened!

Stripygoose was in attendance, and she kindly took some photos of my mail. In the first one you can see two of mine, plus part of one of Eva's, I think.






 Thanks also to Eva, who first got me interested in this project.

Sunday Stamps - the eastern hemisphere

Since the Greenwich meridian runs through London, technically most of Europe is in the eastern hemisphere, however I always associate the east with countries closer to the pacific ocean.

William sent me this fascinating stamped piece of cardboard from the Republic of China, aka Taiwan.






And on the other side was this lovely stamp issued in 2016 featuring the coral Anella mollis.

Envelopes from Eva

I love how Eva created a palette of colors on these two envelopes that work really well with the stamps.

First, one made from a calendar showing the Islamic (1438/1439) and Gregorian (2017) calendars.





And second, one celebrating writing.

Another great Charley Harper envelope.



Update:

This envelope contained my add and return for William (the digestive system was on the original sheet):
