Outgoing Mail Love

I have caught up with all my mail! I have a few post card swaps going on too which I will share next time. Here are a few sneak peaks with what is being mailed out. 


I know that Megan has received this so I thought I would show it. Letter and a tiny star with the initial M.

My last letter to Micaela. The bow is from Erica's etsy shop Sweets and Hearts. And the book post card is from The Little Fox one of my fave Etsy shops. 

This is for Claire. Though I will be sending her out a book too. 

This is for Ruth. 

This is for Belen :) 

For Alicia

And I won't say who these are for :) So it will be a surprise when they receive it. From The Little Fox etsy shop. 

I do have a question though, I show 'sneak peaks' of the letters because I'm not sure if my pen pals want to see what I'm sending. So if you don't mind seeing before receiving, let me know and I will show a full photo for your particular letter. 

Another thought, I was thinking of doing a little swap (nothing big because they are too stressful and half the time partners bail) maybe something simple like a letter and a post card swap? Or like the post card swaps I'm participating in now - a Scavenger Hunt post card swap or write your memoir in 6 words post card? Let me know if you're interested at all. 

Have a great rest of week.

Congrats on catching up with your mail! I'm on vacation in New York City (it's spring break!) but I come home tomorrow and I'm gonna do just the same . . . and a letter to YOU is certainly in order. So fun to see what you're sending out (and receiving, too, when you share those with us!). I love mail posts. <3

I love your mail posts!! It's always great to see happy mail aside from the usual bills :)

You can count me in, with your mini swap whichever one you chose is perfect!

xoxo Lots of amor love!!

P.S. Lol you did not lie, you made a mistake, I google magpies and they do look scary and very much like crows :)
I gave you an award on my blog :)

I haven't done a swap since Christmas. I'd love to play along if you organize one!

Just going to get cozy in my bed with a pile of writing paper now. Good-night from Canada! xo

I am also the same. Do I photograph what I am sending and put it in my blog? it is hard to know really, sorry I am no help at all :P

I'd love to do a little swap! my mailbox has been empty for far too long.

I tend to take photos and then post them after I know the person ash received my letter/package. That said, I've been really slack with taking mail photos lately :(

If you do a swap, I'm totally in. Maybe you could make it quite specific and simple - a letter swap, a post card swap, a photo swap ... something that isn't too big so if people miss out it's not a huge disappointment. That said, if you do decide to do a swap and people do miss out I'd be happy to send some stuff to those who missed out :)
