Philatelink order! It arrived as I was walking out the door to go to work, along with a letter. That moment when you want to stay at home and go through your mail but you know that to do so would mean getting to the office late . . . completely worthwhile in terms of personal affirmation but not in terms of generating good vibes in the workplace.
The letter provoked envy/ admiration for this very cute little ink stamp on the front.13th January
I'd like to up my game a bit when it comes to my mail - by that I mean I want to put more thought in to what I send out, and take the opportunity to try some of the many, many, many projects I have pinned on Pinterest. With this in mind, I've made up a little batch of stickers parcelled up in neat little teabag packages.
The 'how to' for the teabags comes from the Post Fabriek blog which has some lovely snailmail piccies/ ideas on it and is worth a look if you are in to your letters.
Writing letters in different locations is something I would like to do more of in 2018. The majority tend to be scribbled while I am sat out in the garden or curled up in bed with at least one cat in residence. The letter written this morning was done while staying with family, accompanied by the lovely sound of a tawny owl.
First time I've ever felt the true weight of Blue Monday - coming home to find 2 letters waiting for me perked me up on this miserable day. How beautiful are these stamps? While taking pictures of them I discovered by accident that there are in-built filters in my camera so yay to that too.
It's lovely to get a letter which makes you laugh within seconds of opening it. This sticker achieved just that.
Some home made envelopes are just too beautiful to plaster with stamps of varying prices. Every now and then, I do use a standard stamp all on its own.
Getting any kind of envelope in the post is fun but there is an extra bit of excitement when the envelope is a homemade one, like this one received from the Holland.
