Lots of Mail : outgoing


Loon Letter
 sticker on the back - I love these stickers from Dover Books... and these Tiffany stained glass windows are just incredibly beautiful. I would love to see one in real life.

 Letter going out to one of my oldest friends and oldest penpals (since 2nd grade!)

 Going out to Karen from Canada who is the second person to request a book postcard from my new project!  She got Wuthering Heights.

Postcards sent out for a swap-bot swap, along with their stamps

 Letter front and back to my cousin, Shelby.  As of right now the Hawaiian Rain Forest stamps are the only fun ones at my post office, so I'm using  a lot of their selvage to decorate these days.

 Swap-bot swap going out for Poem in Your Pocket Day.  The swap was to send your partner a poem that they can carry around in their pocket on Poem in Your Pocket Day, April 14th.  I chose two gems from Shel Silverstein and printed out his drawings too, which just make his poetry in my opinion.  It was for the 100 Acre Woods Group, which is themed around children's literature, so Shel Silverstein seemed very fitting.

For another swap-bot project, this time in a Jane Austen themed group.  The swap was to send a postcard with a quote from your favorite Austen book.  I can never decide whether I like Pride and Prejudice or Persuasion better, but I went with two quotes from Persuasion:
"I am not fond of the idea of my shrubberies being always approachable." and "But I hate to hear you talking so like a fine gentleman, and as if women were all fine ladies, instead of rational creatures. We none of us expect to be in smooth water all our days."


  1. Postcard received and now on its way back to you. Thank you for letting me be part of this new and exciting project!
