Envelope Adoption Programme!

Miss five (aka Vicky) is giving away free envelopes!!! Yay envelopes!! Check it out here!! She is making them out of Hong Kong-ese magazine ads. Sounds super cool! More details on her blog.


I've been procrastinating on posting for a little while but I am back!!

Lots of exciting things!!


I got a reply from Megs!! It was so cool!! She sent me her zine!! It was so awesome!! I'd never seen a zine before that. She also used the coolest Nancy Drew stationery!! It was neat!!

From my friend Nicole!

And THE MOST AMAZING envelope Ever!!!! From Tara!! It was so cool!! A nice long letter and a bunch of stickers and post cards and fun things!!! Man, it was hefty!! So amazing! It made me so happy!!

The back! Just as cool as the front!!


Reply to Nicole. See that stamp in the corner? From my grandma. I got a bunch of super cool fish stamps and I LOVE them!!!

A letter to my friend Bethany.

To Martina Koehler in Germany!!! This was the first letter I've sent to Germany. How exciting! I always love firsts don't you? I found her through SendSomething. I hope she likes it!!

Then my reply to Megs.

And that's all I have for now. I've been sending a lot of birthday cards out (we have like six september birthdays in the family.).

Also, things I've discovered:

Christian never got my bank robbing postcard!!! I am beginning to wonder what happened to it. My dad was like, "If the FBI show up here because of that, I don't want to talk to them." I think he was kidding but it hasn't shown up yet so I don't know. I didn't put a return address and I used a pseudonym ("the Secret Surgeon") so.... yeah I don't know. Can the post office confiscate suspicious mail???

Also I found out that I can't use first class stamps on international mail because other countries can't tell the amount of postage it represents!! Boo! First class stamps is all I have left right now!! I need to go to the post office.... Thankfully though, my letter to Stephanie arrived safely. But I won't use the first class stamps anymore.

Over and Out and making more mail!!

Yay Three Day Weekends!!!

I wish I could say that all this loveliness that I'm about to show you is the result of hard toil over this glorious three day weekend that we just had.....but it's not. Some of it is from other days too I think. And I think the only bad thing about three day weekends is that the post office has the day off too! :( Nah they deserve it!!
Anyways, lots of pictures!!


Went to the P.O. box yesterday and got this amazingness from a lady in Wisconsin!!

and inside was another envelope that she sent me originally but which was returned to her,

I was so pleasantly surprised, I actually squealed!! ^-^


To Milea, my bestie. I wasn't going to do anything super special and then I came up with the idea to propose to her. It says, "Milea Dear? As I present you with these BEAUTIFUL doodled flowers, I have but one question: Will you marry me? (check one)" I gave her the options of "No" "Yes" and "YES 1,000 times!!!" and urged her to pick the last one. As you can see. I thought it would make her laugh.

To Glen Von Runkle in Illinois, I sent a letter in which I described all the people in the lobby of the doctor's office from my last visit and wondered aloud (on the page) about people watching. Then I sent the letter in a prescription bag from Wal-Mart!! And also a sample of my favorite tea. In response to my mail art, my dad said, "Are you sure it's not just a way to get rid of your junk?" Of course not Daddy!!!

My reply to Annette!

a postcard to Miss Jessica in Big Bear!! (she is visiting out there and I promised to send her some awesome stuff.)

"Meet me at midnight with the money at the opera house! Or else..." I really really wanted to send this to someone in Australia but I didn't just on the off chance that opera houses were actually open at midnight. But I wasn't sure so I sent it to someone from Send Something.

Then I had so much fun with the first postcard I made that I made this one!! "Lets go rob a bank. Usual time. Usual Place. Be there..." Sent to my friend Christian, I've been warning him about it. Usually my friends say "uh oh" when I tell them I will be sending something amazing their way... I wonder why? The meaning behind the postcard is rather an inside joke which would take a while to explain but he'll get a kick out of it.

And that's all I got for now. I'm working on some more mail. Got a letter from Lynsey today and it was nice. She and Matt are moving to Cyprus! I am going to have a penpal in CYPRUS!! Yeehaw!!!

Today I worked on a bunch of postcards but I don't know if I'll send them out just yet. (I like to keep them around for a little while before I send them out. Weird quirk I know.)

Mail Out this week

It's not that I haven't been taking pictures! Or not mailing! I just haven't uploaded them!! (and actually, I just cheat by leaving the card in there...)


a special thank you for Chip.

This was for a mail project I found online. Details can be found here if you like. The idea is to send a SASE to her and she will send something back. So We'll see what happens. (I decorated my SASE too. Perhaps she will add a doodle of two to it? Let's hope!)

Postcard to Miss Megan .

And finally, 
Sorry it's sideways. This goes to Megs in Colorado. Found her through SendSomething. She likes stories!! So I told her an interesting one and included a doodle of my cat in bowling ball form. Yep. That's right! The cat in bowling ball form. Hope she likes it. Hopefully, I'll be able to get some more mail done this weekend. We'll see!
