Postal Service.

first, thank-you SO very  much for your sweet comments on this post. I know it will mean a lot to Summer. Claire called me yesterday to tell me about their time together and it just made my heart warm to think how wonderful this blogging world of ours is to bring two otherwise strangers together in even a time of such personal tragedy. {Read more about it on Claire's post--how beautiful are those girls?}
^the cutest card from Claire

^i love Phoenix's collage envelope (the tag said "Let your heart speak to others' hearts") and cute cards (look at the bunny mona lisa)! She is such a sweetheart, she enclosed a thank-you card already stamped for me to pass along to my Momma for her crochet creations. Phoenix, she will love it!

^Lauren Nicole sent over our traveling journal, along with awesome postcards i love & vintage postage!

^postcrossing from Ukraine

^from Megan : two packs of pretty stationary + a thank-you letter from her sister's boyfriend James who is currently deployed in the middle east. He was thanking me for a care package i had sent but really james, Thank-YOU! 

^loving my  Halloween cards! Erin's says, "Ghouls just wanna have fun!" (j'adore her little one's drawings to me... look at that ghost!) & stella's twin from Maria

^an etsy order from my talented friend Bianca who put together a zine called "Push the Envelope" (it's amazing!) I also ordered a few packs of her collaged postcards. (my momma was proud and happy when i sent her the photo of bianca's zine on a doily she made for her! so cute) 

i'm all about birthdays, especially my best friend's, my best friend who always spoils me on holidays or my own birthday.

(i also sent along something for her sweet daughter mackenzie - i love our letters to each other!)

For M's birthday, i had to get her this beautiful version of the classic Jane Eyre she blogged about. Deco tape from pretty tape, a pocket journal that made me think of her, monogrammed water bottle for her work-outs, a Best of Otis Redding LP, and a wax seal pendant necklace from Jillian Harris

^postcrossing to Latvia (the dog on the far right looks like maverick!)

^handmade postcard going to Marta in Ukraine, who i met through postcrossing 

^this was a thank-you to lovely Erin, for helping me out with a blog project i had been dreaming about. She was so sweet and patient and helped me out right away with absolute kindness. It was so neat to see this post of hers, to see something you send in their hands (how gorgeous are Erin's eyes?) As a dog lover, seeing her Olive with the toy i sent... love it!!!

^i bought a pin-up book from barnes & noble and write on the back like stationary - this one is for Lauren

^postcard going to my pen pal in Italy that i also met through Postcrossing

^knitted booties i picked up at the craft market for Heather, a beautiful mom-to-be

^for my claire, deer deco tape from RetroNaNa

from Pushing the Envelope: "Letters are like a tangible piece of time.  I think they're little packages of good vibes and the feeling after reading (or writing) a good letter is blissful.... "

Ahaha, I don't know that I've ever been quoted before! :D So glad you liked it. Aaaaand, there is an unconventional little package on it's way to you - I should probably tell you that to open it you'll need to cut the thread that holds the zippers down (if it were me receiving it I'd probably try to open it in a hurry and break something, ha) - just thought I'd forewarn you, haha.

Megan said...

I always love your mail posts! So glad that James and my letters fot there safely. I love that drink bottle so gorgeous.

Yay! Glad you got your Halloween card in time for the festive day... Just showed Dylan his pictures on your blog. He blushed, and grinned from ear to ear!
