Mail boom!

Hej hej! (I began to learn Swedish last Monday and I'm so very enthusiastic about it that I felt like saying 'hello' to you in Swedish this time ;) )

Anyways. Me learning Swedish isn't the purpose of this post so let's go back to the topic: mail. After a veeery poor mail week last week, I experienced a mail boom this week! My mailbox was happy everyday! And me who was afraid I might fall out of things to write... :D

Let's show the mail now, uh?
So on Monday I got a package from Marie from Germany. I hadn't heard of her in quite long so I was very happy finding it in my mailbox! The bubble envelope (of which I haven't taken a picture because it was just an usual plain envie) contained:
 A postcard from her trip to Wien
Lots of tea (and of my favourite tea! *-*), plus a bookmark which is now my favourite in my collection. I have a soft spot for cats :3
A long lovely letter written on cute Alice in Wonderland stationery
The envelope containing the letter :) Have I ever mentioned I really like Alice in Wonderland?

Then on Tuesday it was a long letter from my lovely Tanja in Germany that fed my mailbox.
She also sent a postcard from her trip to Ireland. It sounds so beautiful there! *-* And I should remember to ask her where she found her stationery because it'd be EXACTLY the kind of paper I'm looking for!

No letters on Wednesday, but a card from Lavy in Norway who saw the Patrouille de France in Oslo and wrote me to tell me about it :)

On Thursday, after a terrible day at university, I've been cheered up by two letters (yay!) One is from my dear Teresa in the USA
She sent me a business card from a stationery shop in her town, Boston, plus a copy of her own illustration for Andersen's "The Princess and the Pea". We both love Hans Christian Andersen :) And she's so talented, I wish I could draw like her!

Second letter wasn't from China despite the Chinese themed paper ;) It was from Emmi in Finland
She also sent me a quick Finnish/Swedish lesson :)
And I loved the stamp on the envie. I'm actually wondering if there will one day be a Finnish stamp I DON'T like ^^

And finally, today (Friday) brought another two letters in my mailbox! (yeah, I told you it was a mail boom!) First from Heidi in Finland, with another great Finnish stamp, very autumn-like :)
The whole letter was autumn-like actually. And she made her letter as a book! How creative, I loved it!

(Ugh, my fingers look so weird...)

Aaaand, last but not least, a letter from Sille in Estonia, along with three postcards. One shows her university, and I'm jealous! It looks so great! Mine looks awful (and you would never find any postcards featuring it :P)
Yellow isn't my favourite color, but I really loved this yellow envie. Couldn't explain why though. But... it looks just so bright *-*

That's all for the incoming mail (it's already a lot! :D), now let's move on to the outgoing!
I wrote four letters this week. None of them was very long however.

The first is to Reetta in Finland (I think Finland is the country I have the most penpals from actually...)

Then to Jennifer in the UK (I know she has already received it, and so has Reetta actually). Both of these letters have been written on the same week end, I'm still self amazed of my productivity! :D

Then to Bruna in Brazil, on Winnie the Pooh paper...

And finally to Ingrid in the Netherlands, I made an autumn-like envelope :) And I forgot to take the picture before sealing the envie, so you can't admire my little doodlings on the paper, sorry! :S

That's all for today, I think it was an already big update! ^^ I now have quite a lot to write, hehe!
My week has been made of both ups and downs, and I'm now in a down, but I will still write this week end. Because even when I don't feel so great I feel like sharing what's in my mind with my penpals. That's what friends are meant for, right? Hearing and supporting you in any cases.
Do you also write when you don't feel in a cheerful mood?

  1. That's some amazing mail you received :) I'm glad think alike when it comes to Finnish stamps, hehe. BTW, do you think we share two pen pals? Teresa and Reetta? :D

  2. Yes, we share two penpals :) I had already noticed that on one of your blog posts actually ;)

  3. We say 'hej' in Polish too:) We have different ways to say hi and it's one of them.
    I love Andersen's tales too and your penpals ilustration is really beautiful*w*
    I do write letters when I'm not in a good mood and writing always makes me cheer up so in the end a depressing started letter ends optimistically:) But sometimes I worry that maybe my letters get too depressive sometimes because I have such mood changes that one day I might be totally down and the other day all happy... maybe I'm a psycho:P

  4. You're not a psycho ;) Or I'm too, because I'm the same. I might be down one day and totally cheerful the day after.

  5. Wow, that's a really cool coincidence! :D

  6. Really nice looking post cards. I love the one with the trip to the Wien.

    Also the letters look really nice looking big big big time.


Thanks for your comment! :)
