Letter Booklet to Ilona

This is the letter for Ilona, which I made as a small booklet with a small painting of my garden flower pot.

I made the envelope of a paper bag got from Amsterdam. 

This was the first time I used the stamps which I had ordered of my own pictures of our cat Killi.
Here is the the whole sheet of the stamps:


  1. I think the water color is great!! It really has a serene feel to it. The Killi stamps are adorable! Are they real postage or artistamps?

  2. Thank you Elle!! They are real postages. The cost is about twice as big as the cost of a "normal" postage, but I think it's not too bad when you are able to use your own photo. Finnish post has had this service for a couple of years.

  3. This was such a treat, Sirpa - and I love the cat stamps! This is the first time I've seen photo stamps from another country. Now you can send Killi Mail!

  4. I'm glad to hear you liked the delivery! :)
    - Killi Mail sounds great! - I probably have to make Sissi stamps also to send also Sissi Mail! :)
