Happy New Year 2013 to all my readers~~♡♥(。´▽`。)♥♡
The past year has been such a great year what comes to receiving mail; I've joined and created many great swaps, sent and received beautiful post cards all over the world and even got new penpals! I hope my mail box will stay happy next year too. I also want to thank all the readers, I think it's great I am able to share my passion for snail mail here at my blog with you fellow mail lovers (ღˇ◡ˇ)♥ I wish you all amazing and snail mail filled new year! *end of the speech*
~Last out-going mail in 2012~
To my new penpal Samantha in the United States. I hope she will reply me.
For Kam in HongKong. I sent her a few of my favorite Christmas chocolates with the letter.
Another letter to the States. I really like this new stationery I got from my swap partner, it's so beautiful *-*
For my swap partner Erika in Japan. I promised to send her five cartoon cards. In the end I took off the Pluto card and added three Looney Tunes cards. I sent this swap a little late because I ordered the cards on the Internet and the seller didn't sent the cards in time because of Christmas -__- I contacted my partner and told her about the situation...I hope she is not angry ;;; I sent her two extra cards and memo sheets to prevent her anger ^^;;;
Then~~~ I got pretty nice X'mas presents this year and I want to show you two of them, which are very useful for mail!!
I actually asked them from my mom, and she got me some yay! Now I can send punch of postcards and letters and pay zero euros zero cents ! lol
These post stamps has been my favorites for a while. I get a dreamy feeling of them.
Post stamps of old/80's Finnish bands. Really cool, I already used a few of them! These might be my favorite post stamps at the moment.
Girly and cute stamps.
I got loads of priority stickers with the stamps o__o!! I don't know how I am able to use all of them... I have loads of them now as usually whether I go to post office, I grab punch of them in case I don't find them when needed. Now I definitely do not have to collect them anymore..!
2) second present is surprisingly from my brother!!
I didn't expect anything from him, as usually he doesn't get me anything for X'mas..so this was a nice surprise, especially when the gift wrap didn't reveal the usual chocolate box but something more personal; craft stuff =D He had noticed my interest in mail art although I'm not staying at home alot nowadays. I was very happy! The box included envelopes, different colored and sized cartons and other craft stuff. I will definitely use them with my best skills.
