Verity Snail Mail

Snail Mail from the NEXT generation!

This "SWEET"  mail arrived all the way from Scotland!  This is from "Verity" who is 12 years old.  She made me an adorable flip book, and asked to be featured on my blog.  Well, she didn't need to ask.  She has a great crafty style....just look!

Look at all this goodness she sent my way!

I decided to do a little Pen Pal "intro" page to my letter, to let her know a little bit about me.  Along with my letter, I thought she might like some "Owl Mail"  so I whipped up a cute packet of owl themed embellishments and stationery for Verity.

This is a home made Kraft envelope...lined in matching colors.   This is also a LARGE-ish envelope. You need to be careful with international mail.  They seem to allow rather large envelopes, but you need to be sure that it is no more than a 1/4 inch thick.  They have a little doo-hicky thing that they will slide your letter through, and if it doesn't go will go PARCEL rate, which you don't want , unless you want to spend $14 dollars or more.  So be creative in "flat mail".  I usually put about $3 worth of postage , on average, when sending to the UK.  

On its way to Scotland!  Happy Travels!

Happy Snail Mailing!
