Mail and swap thinking

I haven't done a mail post in awhile. I've been a bit lazy with mail so there's just a bit of incoming from awhile back.


This is from Joana. She's my long letter pen pal :) I love all the extras that she included. Like that sweet brooch.

I received this gorgeous package from Julia ages ago. Plus I have met up with her which will be in another post.

I love these little bow earrings she gave me.

These are some sweet little Polaroids she added.

A lovely first letter from Ingrid.

I got this from Lauren's etsy shop. She packaged it up so beautifully. And when I opened it the most lovely scent wafted out.

A lovely letter from Megan.

Inside the letter. I really love the stationery she uses for letters.


This was for Belen. She had already received it so I can show what's inside.

This was for Micaela. The print is an engagement present for her. She has also received this so I can show it.

For a journal swap on Swap-bot.

This was for Nicole. A birthday present that I hoped she has received.

A really late letter to Melody.

My return letter to Ingrid.

My first letter to Lauren.

This is for Joana. I forgot to take a photo of the envelope so I thought I would do a sneak peak photo of what I gave her.

So I'm finally up date with my letters. I have a few others to write that aren't bloggers and I have put together a few packages that need to be sent out too.

My other idea is I want to do a swap on here but I can't quite decide what to do. Either a book swap or some type of package swap like 'A few of my favourite things.' Let me know. What type of swap you would be interested in??? And I have a few projects in mind too.

Have a wonderful week!

Melody said...

Oh yay! I can't wait to receive that letter! One little thing though, do you think you could cover up my last name?
Thanks so much Gracie!

Mail posts make me feel so happy haha! I love, love the print you sent Micaela, so perfect.
I would be excited about either of those swaps as you know :-)

Someday I'd like to participate in a swap where the person has to draw all over one envelope and exchange it. They can be stick figures, circles, etc. but it should be fully 100% covered.

Love all the mail! :)

Unknown said...

Oh, so sweet! I love getting mail, this is the best thing about blog giveaways, I think! A special package in the mail, and usually the blogger adds something special! XO!

I haven't done a swap in a while. If you wait till September when I'm back at work (and getting a regular paycheque again!) I'd love to take part. A few of my favourite things is a great idea!

BonBon Rose Girls Kristin said...

Those little bow earrings are soooooo precious! I want some snail mail!

Unknown said...

I love getting letters especially pretty ones like these.
I have never done a swap but it sounds fun.

Bree Anna said...

A few of my favourite things! And I'd be the first to join (:

Cassie said...

You are so lucky to get so much pretty mail. Your mail box must look gorgeous with all that inside!

Swap sounds good, maybe September would be great too at the start of a new season perhaps?


green tea and red nails said...

your mail makes me happy!!

both those swap ideas sounds grand :) i'd be keen for either!

enjoy the rest of your week - KEL

I'm keen for any type of swap. I like the idea of 'A few of my favourite things', and I've also seen a colour based swap where you get your partner things in their favourite colour. Whatever you decide, I'm definitely in :)

Micaela said...

Gracie, i can't even begin to tell you how PERFECT the print is for our house. Even Max said it was "very me." I was SO TOUCHED!!! thank you with alll my heart x10!

i loved your letter & the magnets and looove your notecards! in fact, in the picture i took there's only 1, because i had already used the other ;)

you are a darling!!! and i can't wait to write you back.

happy mail, indeed! :)

ps. a book swap is my favorite!!! but so is the favorite things... either one, you know i'll be in! x

ohjoana said...

I'd be amazed to get into a swap of a book, actually I had the same idea a while ago, with some more details (which I still have), it was pretty similar. Still, I'll get into a swap of a book if you decide to do it.

I can't wait to get your letter! :)

I love all the beautiful pieces of mail you show ***

Much love,

OneCraftyFox said...

I would love to participate in a "few of my fav things' swap :)

Oh, and a few of my favorite things would be a swap I'd be interested in!

littletiara said...

omigosh! Those are all so adorable! I can say the postman and you are now friends, right? Because I am! Hahaha... xD and mine isn't even half as much as yours! :D

and all those packages and letters are so pretty!

Kristie said...

snail mails! <3 real letters with real envelopes and real stamps. emails are faster but they're nowhere precious.
and for the swap?
um a postcard swap would be nice.
or a swap where you put random things you think the person would love in the envelope.

This is precious. i used to have tons of penpals that i met over Xanga blogrings (lol). we kept in touch and I even visited one in Chicago while touring colleges. Penpals are awesome!:)
