Mushrooms and mail


CeciliaThis envelope had a piece of nonsense in it, and I sent it to my BFF Cecilia here in Sweden.

KatrinThis is a reply to one of the letters Katrin from Germany has sent me.

Naoko naoko2These two letters were for my friend Naoko in Japan.

I noticed as I uploaded these pictures that I have used the mushroom stamps for three of the envelopes. I really love these stamps that were released last autumn! I hope they will come up with something pretty again soon, because I think the last few stamp designs have been really boring. Just wanted to file that complaint in this not very official forum.


Happy New Year!


2016! New year, new possibilities. Looking back on 2015 I must say I’ve been a pretty shitty (pardon) penpal during the last year, and now I will make it my goal to change that for 2016. 2015 was very busy for me, and maybe 2016 will be too, but with some good strategies my penpalling might still work out. I might for example ask a few of my penpals if they’re alright with writing shorter letters. Better than no letter, right? So anyway, I’ve spent a couple of days writing replies to a few of the letters in my pile this weekend. I still have a lot of letters left to reply to, but I will get there soon (I hope :)

Since I haven’t been writing much I have also neglected my blog. Seriously, last entry is October 10? Hehe… Oops. Well, hopefully I’ll keep this place a bit more busy once I get back into my letter writing shoes. Not literally. I don’t have shoes like that. Sorry.

Without further ado – incoming mail:

FridaA super cool 3D dinosaur postcard from Frida from our neighbouring country Norway!

Katrin Katrin2These two envelopes are form my very good friend Katrin from Germany.

Toshiko 2 ToshikoToshiko in Japan sent me a letter and Christmas mail :)




Long time no see!


So I have been very inactive lately. I blame adulthood. Going from being a student to work full time is a change I yet have to get used to. I have not been writing letters for months, and I apologize to all my penpals for this. I have tried to reply to some letters the last week, but progress is slow. Here are some of the letters I’ve sent out since the beginning of summer:

ceciliaThis was for my in IRL friend Cecilia in Sweden <3

JoanaThis is a letter I sent to my dear friend Joana in Portugal.

Julie McLA greeting card to my Julie in the US.

to deniseAnd this is one of my latest letters that went to dear Denise, now living in the US (previously Canada). I really like these new mushroom stamps!


Hopefully I’ll be able fill this blog with more mail soonish :) I hope you’re all enjoying the autumn season!
