snailmail #3

11Hi everyone. Another snailmail post πŸ™‚ Yesterday I was studying, when my roommate walked in and handed me a pretty blue envelope. It had the cutest surprise in it and just made my day, Funny how a little piece of paper can just turn your whole mood around. I was so happy that I took a rather long study break and wrote a couple of snailmail pieces myself.

#1. A response to the happy kitten card. Β To keep with the cat theme I pasted a cool cat sticker next to her address. You might not be able to see in the picture put the cat is wearing a crown and royal cape.Β 10

#2. It’s mom’s birthday soon so I thought it would be nice to send her a birthday card and a tourist card from Melbourne.

#3. A response to a highschool friend in the USA. I love the postcard that I sent along. My university has this neat rack of advertisement postcards – and quite often they are really awesome. So i collect them and send them all over the globe. This one is for an exhibition in the State Library of NSW called “The impossible peace from war photographs to landscapes 1958-2011”.Β 13

#4. Another birthday card and a letter to my friend in Canada – hope it gets there in time. I love the new tape that I purchased. I put the same three stamps on every piece of mail. It was a little bit of a struggle at the postoffice. I think the lady behind the counter was having a bad day, and so my suggestion of wanting multiple stamps instead of the regular international stamp was not well received. With a little bit of patience it all worked out and now there are some new stamps floating around in mail space. πŸ™‚Β 14

This week’s snailmail :)

Hello everyone πŸ™‚

This weekend has been a busy snailmail weekend, I have been trying to send out a bunch of happiness to different parts of the world. 9The robot card is a birthday card to a friend in the US. It won’t get there on time, but it’s the thought that counts on this one. The strawberry envelope is made from scrapbooking paper and will travel to Canada πŸ™‚

6My mom told me that my aunt had a fall from a horse and the doctor has told her she has to rest for a while. So I decided that I should send her a kangaroo postcard and a cat stickered envelope (she loves cats) to wish her well. Hop to Belgium! 7The Australia postcard is going to a highschool friend in Boston. It’s so lovely that we use snailmail to keep in touch πŸ™‚ The duckie envelope is going to Israel to a classmate that I recently reconnected with.

8The penguin is incoming snailmail πŸ™‚ I have a couple of artsy friends and recently they have taken to drawing and doodling animals onto the envelopes. So far I have received a crocodile, a beaver, and a penguin. It makes me so happy to open the mailbox and receive a little bit of handwritten love!

I’ve been working on a new shawl and hope to have it finished fairly soon – pictures will follow! Have a lovely week everyone xx
