Snail Mail Monthlies: February 2014

A Snail Mail Round-Up
You know by now I love my snail mail exchanges and lately I have wanted to share my incoming mail with you. We've had dreary, grey weather of late so snapping these packages was a challenge - none the less here they are... good light, bad light whatever. I wanted to capture January too, but decided to leave it out for now as we would be here all week. I kept everything together until I could take the photos, but I had to start using a few of the pretty things. I also decided to summarise the photos as it could become quite a hefty post - let me know if you prefer more detailed / bigger images and I will happily oblige.

February kicked off with a delightful batch of goodies, including a package from Nadya in Cape Town. We started exchanging late last year and I really enjoyed her first letter. This time round she wrote in this cute panda card from Paperchase. She also sent me some lovely goodies including a Typo heart stamp. I love all the special details in this package.

I received a Chinese New Year card from my friend Win Naa in Malaysia. We often exchange letters and packages and love being a part of each other's lives. 

The very kind Miss Milly sent me a small package of her handmade cards and a little notebook - so sweet.
Mieke from Stellenbosch sent me the most amazing pastel coloured package and letter. I just love every little detail she lovingly added.

I sent Roxy from Citygirl Searching (South Korea) a small package last year and her reply was beautiful and full of really lovely and useful items including a 2014 calendar. Truly cute and lovely!
I dedicated the last four pictures to a package from Eike (Germany) which was HUGE. It arrived in a large box and I was blown away by the amount of interesting things she sent which included heaps and heaps of stationery, lip balm, tea, sweets (already enjoyed) and crafty bits and pieces. 

I hope you enjoyed this quick round-up of the snail mail I received in February.

    I just love snail mail! My one sister who loves arts and crafts and lives in Cape Town, has started "postc(art)" where one makes up quickly an arty crafty postcard, send to friends+family and requests one in return. This really made my creative juices start flowing! I have also start sending some and can't wait to receive some in return!

  8. Snail mail is so much fun - both to send and to receive. Happy creating! :-) x
