INCOMING - Robin
Thank you Robin for my wonderful package as part of the No Spending Swap through swap-bot. Everything is terrific! From the bookmark, which I'm already using, to the Wizard of Oz card, to the stickers and stationery, to the lip balm (which one can never have enough of.) I loooooove lemonade and can't wait to sip some of this on a hot summer day. Thank you so much!
INCOMING - Micaela
I got such a thoughtful package from Micaela. She is such a believer in all forms of love. It really resonates with me. You can feel her spirit through her thoughtful gifts and words. She sent some Willy Wonka chocolate which reminded me of my second grade teacher reading a little bit of James and the Giant Peach to our class each day. I heart teachers. There was also a wonderful pen/bookmark with the quote "Love is friendship set on fire." I couldn't agree more! Micaela also sent me a cute letter written on a card from a local artisan. I love that she stamped by name and added an Italian postage stamp (a land she loves) on her envelope as well. The two beautifully wrapped packages contained some terrific Goat's Milk soap that is perfect for my sensitive skin and a notebook that will so so well on the go! Gratitude always.
OUTGOING - Ameera
A little googly-ness for my dear friend in the 905.
OUTGOING - Megan
A snail mail high five for Megan who has been working so hard at school. I got this envelope from Felicity. I love it and was so happy to send it to Megan. You can get your own envelopes here.
OUTGOING - Meghan
Felt so weird without my snail mail tools but couldn't let that slow down the greetings. I had my mini pack of markers in my purse, so I quickly decorated this envelope with a birthday card for Meghan while waiting for the bus.
OUTGOING - Margaret
Here's my package for the Cute/Funky Sock Swap from swap-bot. By now, I was on the bus and drawing in motion. I think I was just outside City Hall when I scribbled this one. I got socks in a few different sizes because I wasn't sure how our sizes would translate to the European sizes. Margaret's profile mentioned she loved Disney so I threw in some fun stickers too.
OUTGOING - Jenni
Another bus ride design. Passing on a book to Jenni at absentminded. Jenni recently complete the American Cancer Society Relay For Life. High five to you!
OUTGOING - Micaela
So I went to the post office near home ready to send this Texas inspired (from me, who has never been to Texas...ouch) envelope to Micaela. I told the clerk that I didn't want the boring gray and white metered stamp. I wanted real stamps! He kinda laughed at me and said, "Fine, let's use as many stamps as we can." Here are some goodies on their way to Virginia.
The before shot.
The after shot with 9 different stamps.
OUTGOING - Riesta
I sent a package to Riesta in Indonesia as part of Tillie's Simply Delightful Package Swap. I had to send her at least three of my favorite things. I sent one of my favorite books, my favorite snack right now, a burgundy wristlet (great for spring and summer when you don't have to worry about gloves and mittens on your hands), lip balm (I told you it was a fave) and an Akoha deck of cards. A very basic way to explain Akoha would be to say that it a real live game of paying it forward. Check it out.
Riesta's after. 11 stamps!
Snail mail makes me so happy!
