Ways to Use Meow Mail

 



Papemelroti now has Kitty Meow Mail Postcards!  They are so purr-etty!  They are quite large so you can put your life story on it (well maybe not quite but a large portion of your life can fit in there).  It’s made of 100% unbleached recycled paper so you don’t have to worry about your carbon footprint either!


So okay you know that it’s for writing to loved ones all around the world but did you know that this can be used for a lot of other stuff?




Wear it as a mask!  Just punch a hole in the eyes so you can see and 2 small holes at the sides so you can put a piece of ribbon or rubber band and tie around your head or sling around your ears.



See even Victorian ladies thought that was a good idea?



Make a meow-bile ahem ahem… mobile!  This one will have major impact since it’s going to cover a lot of room on your wall or just hanging from the ceiling!  Fur-tabulous for sure!



Your walls don’t have to be so empty!  Paste the kitty head and then make it an art project for a Meow-ral (mural) to Remember!




Pin the bowtie on that kitty is a nice spin on an old favorite party game!



Make a Pop-up Kitty Card!  And make your friends purr with delight!




Decorate your furbaby’s corner with any one of our Meow Mail!




Decorate a plain gift box with Meow Mail!




Hang them on string for a Fur-tastic and all-occasion bunting!




For those of you selling clothes at bazaars this season, put Meow Mail on the head portion to catch the buyers’ eye!




Make visitors feel more welcome with a kawaii kitty!  Tape onto your door and make a bubble with some welcoming words!



Decorate your clear or painted laptop case with a kitty!  Paste on using a thin layer of white glue and then to protect it, put several thin layers of white glue over the whole surface.


Can you think of more ways to use our Meow Mail?

Painted Verses by Peggy

We thought you would enjoy a compilation of Peggy’s most recent sketches.  She is the “pe” of pa-PE-melroti and she shares with us her drawings done while she is reflecting on the Word.  She her work with a short caption below each picture.


Everything is a grace because everything is God’s gift. Whatever be the character of life or its unexpected events—to the heart that loves, all is well. – Thérèse de Lisieux



Jesus asks us this same question He asked Peter. And even when we are unfaithful, as Peter was, He continues to accept us and ask us again, “Do you love me?” He knows the answer to this question even more than we do. But He still delights in our “Yes, Lord, you know that I love you.” ??????
Expressing love increases love.




What a wonderful thought that even the hairs on our heads are numbered! Let me remember this when I am anxious or fearful. Fear not!


God’s words in this verse in Numbers really struck me when I first read them. What words are WE saying? 


God’s WORD has seen me through the most challenging times of my life.


May these words of Jesus in John 17:4 be also true for me.


I finally overcame the fear of the blank margins in my new journaling bible and started on my first illustration!


In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.” John 16:33


A blessed Sunday!


Jesus’ prayer and mine…



A reminder…




When the world tells us different things



We are living in the world but not of this world. We are sons and daughters of God, citizens of the Kingdom. Our true home is where our Father is. 
Lord, help me to always remember that, as the song goes,”Heaven is my home, I am Kingdom bound…”
