Finally more mail!

When the postman comes to my house, I'm usually at work. So, my parents or my sister take my letters and put them somewhere I can easily see them when I get home (I usually enter the house eagerly asking "WHERE'S MY MAIL?").
This week, I found out my family have been doing some kind of a race - the first one to reach the recently delivered mail can be the lucky first one to view the beautiful envelopes I get.
This information was funny to me, as I never knew that my family was just as amused as I am with mail art. Isn't that nice? I wonder how many people smiled to these envelopes from the moment they were sent until they reach me.


My first incoming for this week was my stationery purchase from La Papierre (check out Julie's blog, by the way). I bought a grab bag of letter papers and some mail tags, and, as part of a special offer, I got 8 extra surprise items. So, I had no idea of what I was going to find on this envelope. So exciting!

Look at this gorgeous moose stamp!

These are the beautiful stationery that came on my grab bag, plus my mail tags.

And these are the bonus items I received.

Everything is so beautiful, right?
Plus, I also got two letters from my dear penpals!

A letter from Felicia, in Canada.

A first letter from Sarah, in Belgium.


A letter to Frida, in The Netherlands, and some postcards.

Now, I have some work to do catching up with all my replies. Have a great weekend, everyone!
