Lovely Letters Snail Mail Exchange

I recently participated in the April Lovely Letter Snail Mail Exchange. My partner, Barb, and I sent each other colourful themed goodies! She’s a fellow Canadian and it was so nice to receive some mail from the great white north! The mail came quick! I was surprised since Canada post usually takes forever. She’s still waiting on my package, which will be there soon – hopefully! I really hope she likes what I sent!

Okay, so a bit about the parcel. Woohoo!! Yay, mail! When I saw it I knew by the size of it that it was a “Lovely Letter”. Most of my other mail is relatively small in size.

Mail tragedy: When I turned it over I realized that there was a rip 😦 Nooooo, mail carriers, please care for our mail like you would a small child! Am I the only one who gets sad when something like this happens? When I opened it I saw bubble wrap – amen to that – secured with some fun washi tape. I love surprises!!!

There is one thing I saw as soon as I opened the envelope. Yummy yummy chocolate! SMARTIES! I have never ever seen smarties in Korea, so this was very special! It was a chocolate egg with colourful smarties inside, but sadly I couldn’t get a pic since I scarfed it down as soon as I saw it. A bit of it melted, but thankfully the other goods weren’t affected. And on to the other gifts….

Look at how this lady spoiled me! Amazing stuff!! Along with the chocolate, a set of colourful hilighters, a wonderful memo book (that I will definitely put to good use at my new job), three pretty note cards, organic earl grey tea (can’t wait to try it while writing some cards) and a beautiful “Birthday Rafiki” friend chain! What I loved most about the chain is that it can be a necklace, bracelet, anklet or headband…. and the chain supports education in Free the Children communities. Barb’s purchase has provided children with tools that empower them to lead happy lives. 🙂 Thank you, Barb! Such a thoughtful snail mail pal and person!

        

I’ll be sending Barb a thank you note soon. Be sure to check out her blog! Oooh and take a look at Lovely Letters, too!

Happy mailing, everyone!! 🙂

Incoming package from Tomomi

Tomomi sent me this cute little package from Japan. I absolutely love the Disney stamps and how she decorated the front. And inside… this goody pack was filled with some roasted green tea, coffee, a lovely letter and sweet wedding card. Thank you, Tomomi!10410963_680400715422804_8342053476084879974_n-1

I love samples, chocolate and vintage stamps and this incoming bunch was filled with just that!

Bottom right: From Sarah. This lady always sends incredible mail! I couldn’t believe that she made this stationery herself using vintage stamps. I also really loved the pretty envelope and postcards. My goodness! Definitely one of my faves! Thank you!

Sending or receiving… I’m not sure which I love more!
