Hey there!!

How are you all doing? ;) I am very excited to share with you “my first ever snailmail”! There is just something about checking your post daily and knowing you will be receiving an oldfashioned letter! I was lucky to get to know some people through instagram and blogs to have find some penpals! I even received a little “Happy mail”! To start of with this picture:

So this was the first snailmail! I got this cute “homemade” envelop from Stephanie from South-Korea! I love how she used magazine paper to make it! It looks really unique. Beside the cute letter she wrote me she gave me some Korean tea! I will try that out very soon! She also gave me some Korean coffee. I’m so curious to try Korean products, so I’m very excited! She also gave me “Tiny Cute Stationery”! Just look at that little envelop and letter! Korean goodies really are too cute right?!

Now for the other mail! Here’s a picture of the letter my penpal, “Trisha” sent me! She decorated it so pretty! Love the curly design and colors! She even put a little quote in the middle that says:

The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
The more places you’ll go.

-Dr Seuss

It’s such a nice quote! Inside was the letter ofc! Which I had a lot of fun reading! :) Then up to the last of my snailmail!!

I absolutely love the stamps on the envelop too! Now, you must be curious what’s inside right? Here it is!

She gave me some of the cutest Washi Tape samples! I especially love the “Japan themed ones”! I mean, look how cute they are! I’ve been seeing them around on instagram a lot lately, and am so happy to own a sample of it now! I might never wanna use it though (The hoarder in me :p ). Aside from the lovely washi tape samples, she also gave me some Adorable stickers! Especially love the glitter elephant ones!

    • Well, since it’s my first snailmail, I’m also quite the noob. :D I just kept seeing snailmail pictures on instagram, and it al looked so great. Happy mail too! So I decided to try it out. I stumbled on 2 of my penpals here on the blog, and another thanks to Instagram. ^^ All you have to do is approach someone who does it, or doesn’t! Hope that helps!

  2. I am so excited to read that you finally received my letter! I was so worried that you weren’t going to get it, because I’ve never sent international mail before. I’m glad that you loved the quote, because it has become my favorite after having to read that Dr. Seuss book to my daughter literally like a hundred times per week. Haha. I look forward to your reply, and I will definitely start a section to post when I receive mail so that way others won’t worry either. Happy Writing! :)

  5. I found my pen pals the same way, though all of mine I think I found on Instagram. There are also some websites that you can use! the Postal Society is one, though I think it’s best to use that one if you have a P.O Box (which I do not, sadly).
    Snail mail is so much fun though! I’m glad you are enjoying it so far!
