This week’s snailmail :)

Hello everyone 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂 The duckie envelope is going to Israel to a classmate that I recently reconnected with.

8The penguin is incoming snailmail 🙂 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

Hi everyone, I know it’s been a while. I dont have any new knitting projects to show, but I have been fairly busy with another hobby of mine – snailmail. I love snailmail and think it is just wonderful to open the mailbox to find a handwritten letter, knowing someone in the world took the time to sit down and write to you, the oldfashioned way.

This is a collage showing the mail that I have sent out the last 2 weeks. The top left is a package going to Canada, it contains one of the hats I knitted and a couple of postcards. The top right are letters for friends; I really love the little robot image on the envelope though I can’t seem to remember where I got it from. The second envelope is made out of scrapbooking paper. The Birthday puzzle card is for my dad, whose birthday is today. It doesn’t seem that the card has arrived yet, so hopefully it will get there soon. The last picture features some masking tape I got today, and am in love with. Rubber duckies are just so cute!

More snailmail to come 🙂
