What's Happening In My Mailbox!

The Goings On of a Snail Mailer


I received this letter  recently and noticed that there were not cancellation marks on the stamp.


A young friend of mine made this  gorgeous origami flower with a jewel center--it arrived in perfect condition.  I think that it was saved from going through the machines and someone lovingly directed it to me.  OK...I like to think that, but hey--maybe!  Anyways, thank you, USPS for a job well done!


Some Great mail that needs my attention.


I love this New York Stamp, and look at that great 2 cent stamp with the light house. I love the art of postal arrangement, I'm still learning about it.  Some people just have a knack for it...I need to work at it.  I guess it starts with a wide assortment of postage stamps at the ready.  Do you work at making a beautiful arrangement of stamps on your letters? 




This sweet letter came from Spain!  I loved the fruit slice garland and the package of goodies.  Really cheerful  mail.  Now all I need is some quiet time  so that I can get busy  and write some letters.  What about you?  Are you behind on letter writing or on top of things?  

The craftier, the better!
Happy Snailmailing,

Pam

  2. I am behind on blogging and writing mail. I need to get my butt in gear and put some pen to paper.

  3. I am also behind on mail. There will be a letter coming your way soon though. I am trying to get some mail sent before my trip to Idaho this week. I will be visiting my dad in St. Maries, Idaho. I love to see your posts and I get great ideas for my own letter writing. Do you know if there is a recipe for homemade ink? I finally found an antique ink bottle but I want to make my own ink. Have a great day. <3

  4. I WISH that there was a need for multiple stamps here in Australia... our stamps are generally a wee bit boring and you don't require more than one... love seeing mail done like this!
