Mail Call #2

Oh my.
The postman delivered a stack of letters today and a package from amazon! Thankfully I have the weekend to start replies. The new 3 day reply rule is still being worked on. If interruptions could be limited to 3 an hour, I would be getting more work done. All while of course catching up on uni reading.

1. Packing box of stationary!
2. Lovely note & book from my darling Nicki Marie
3. Mail love
4. More mail love
5. Obsession via amazon. Legal pads galore.
6. Lots of coffee & more mail art

Mail Call #1

Happy letter box this week ^_^

Bright pink letter from new pen pal Sarah in Victoria.
Beautiful multi envelope letter from long standing pen pal Cheryl in Scotland.
Envelope letter from new pen pal Loren in NSW. 


Have already started on replies and decorated envelopes for these three lovely ladies. New 3 day reply rule starting given how packed my uni schedule is. So have to get to the post office asap.


Mail Art Trainee

Like most things I am late to join phenomenons. Blogging, Washi Tape and now Mail Art. So I have started. Seems like the perfect thing. A creative outlet I can pack up quickly. 
Turns out water jugs and coffee cups are not friends and should not be so close. Did it twice before I moved the cup. Smart move. Here are the results so far:

Looking forward to sharing them with pen pals. Have found some more through Interpals, Live journal &
Kind of amused that even in the pen pal world people act like it is high school. Not cool enough for people to write to, or even reply to messages. Sometimes it is just funny, other times it is genuinely saddening. Oh well.

Backpack vs Messenger Bag

Uni is back next week and for the last few weeks I have been obsessing over what bag to get. One unit has 7 required books, plus I always carry my letter writing folder with me. Question I really want to look like that much of a dork. So far no luck with finding a bag locally. Is it so hard to find a plain black bag with no printing on it. Almost found the perfect one, only to discover wheels on the bottom. No. Just plain no. Looking for something like this

or maybe this

Very army surplus store meets Girl with Dragon tattoo. Swedish version of course as I am refusing to watch the American one. Now if I could only find one that wasn't just a google images picture
