I am afraid I can’t keep up with all the incoming mail I’ve received this last week. I shouldn’t complain (I’m so overwhelmed by how awesome people are). Slowly I’m responding to everyone! Here is a preview of some stuff that made my mailbox very happy 🙂
Sarah (USA) sent her letter with two vintage postcards from the National Postal Museum. I also liked the Harry Potter forever stamp attached.
Another awesome stamp is this one from Kara (UK) which features a scene from “Bend it Like Beckham”. I love extra large stamps and this one is bigger than usual 🙂 woo hoo!
Sorry for the blurry-ness of these two photos (above and below)
Above: From Thea (Australia). I sent her a few blank postcards for a swap and one of them was an old library index card from my university. It just so happened that the book information on the card was related to her field (marine science). Who would have thought? Total fluke! So, she responded with a lengthy letter and three fantastic postcards.
Above: Dee sent me a letter from British Colombia with pretty stationery (that I have already used. It’s pretty!!) and a vogue postcard (starting to collect those).
Debbie made this envelope out of recycled paper. She’s so talented, really! I think her work is fantastic and I’m so happy that she’s one of my pen pals. Thanks Debbie!
Finally, my cousin out in Whistler, BC sent this local artist ad postcard. I am very excited to be moving out west at the end of the year.
I also received a letter from a fellow Torontonian (currently living in the same city as I am). She used some very pretty stamps to spice up her stationery. I have got to start doing that. It’s nice to have pen pals in Canada (as well as abroad). I’ve limited my sending to pen pal swaps instead of postcrossing. Although I do love postcrossing I’d rather send and receive from people who are interested in an ongoing correspondence.
