Outgoing and incoming from yesterday!

I was so happily surprised to find a bunch of mail in my mail box yesterday! I'm working on replies as I write this (well, not AS I write this, but you get the idea!) and already have one heading out! So, lets get to the mail, shall we?

I was super surprised to get this FANTASTIC envelope in the mail from Jen! She put in so much effort and I LOVED the outcome! She made a booklet out of old maps and glued cut-outs of her letter to each page along with some cute embellishments like washi tape, stickers, etc! I don't show the content of my letters, but I'm going to include a photo of the back pocket where she included some lovely extras so you get a general idea of the design of the booklet. I almost squealed when I opened the packet! It would have been really embarrassing if I had because I was sitting outside my college waiting for a class to start! haha.

The envelope:

The booklet! This is the back page. :)

How cool is that? I wish my typewriter hadn't run out of ink because I think it would have been perrrrfect for my reply, but I'll just have to come up with something else!

Here are some of the other fab letters I got!

The first is from the wonderful Gladys! She was so sweet and totally thought of me! I sent her some stamps and she sent me some absolutely lovely gifts in return! She knows that I love obsess over Paris and sent me some Paris-themed sticky notes (which I will TOTALLY use!!) and also some super sweet airmail themed mini envelope memo notes! I've seen these before and really wanted to try some! Now I can!

Next was a WONDERFUL letter from Sarah and France! She's a transplant from England and I love hearing about her life! It's funny because she mentioned that on a clear day, she can see England from the sea front! How cool is that? And it's only a ferry ride to England for her!

Next, I received an always wonderful letter from my dear Arwen in Scotland!

How cute is this stationary? This is from a letter from Kiia-Riikka in Finland! And check out the pretty stamps!

The letter that I'm showing next is from a new pen pal! Terry from Alameda, CA! It's only a mere 2 and a half hours away! My dad doesn't work too far from there! haha! I love the Little Twin Stars stickers, too! Too cute!

And here are a few that I received today! Absolutely AMAZING!

First is a letter and package FULL of goodies from the lovely Ammy in Singapore! The stamps were just absolutely amazing, so naturally, I'll have to show those as well!

Peep the amazing contents! The little green square is a notebook and it has star anise on it, so it smells like licorice!

TO THE STAMPS! They are all different!

Naturally, the turtle stamp goes first!

Look at the looooong stamp!

I wish we had these awesome stamps here. :/

And on to Michelle's aaaahmayzing letter! I've got to go print some of my photos out for her today to send in my reply!

What is that, you see? You are correct! THOSE ARE VELLUM ENVELOPES! I almost had a heart attack!

And last but not least, a wonderful letter from Janina! I'm so glad she is doing so well in her pregnancy! I'm forseeing a baby verrrry soon! :D

That's it for today! I'm off to Walmart and my psychiatrist appointment!

Okay. Paperchase? Writing Paper? Envelopes?!!! Where does this pen pal live? The paperchase in Basingstoke has absolutely NOTHING in the letter writing department! :O!! I am so jealous of your pen pal!

Are you looking for any more penpals at all? xx

I didn't get any mail yesterday. :( Probably a good thing, though, since it rained and rained and rained for 24+ hours, non-stop, and our letterbox leaks!
