Regular life and mail

I'm drinking my morning coffee and trying to wrap my head around the last few weeks. It's been pretty crazy but I had an awesome time. So, first things first:

Thank you everyone who came by the craft fairs! Thank you to the organizers and my fellow sellers! It was great!

Now, I'm trying to figure out what I should be doing next. First priority should definitely be getting rid of the little paper snippets that are floating around our place. I've been frantically making things, so there's definitely paper everywhere. Also, I need to shake this compulsion to make something constantly. I feel a tad weird now when I'm not making anything.

We're a week away from Christmas, so I need to get organized for Christmas preparations as well. I'd like to give you an example of what I need to do, but I'm not quite sure right now. This is a prime example of where my head's been for the last few weeks.

I've missed a few weeks of Mail Love, so I wanted to share a few things today. Admittedly though, I've received some great mail and sent a whole lot of outgoing, but I didn't actually take photos... So, all I can do  right now is one photo of each.


Mail Love - Outgoing
This is a small sample of my outgoing mail. There's actually been quite a bit recently. I will run out of those hot pink envelopes shortly and I think I'm oddly going to miss them...


Mail Love - Incoming
A letter from Laura and another from Jess. What a two days that was. I took way too long to write to both, yet here they are, swift replies again. I won't take as long this time. I promise!

On a side note, I'm trying to decide what to do about this outgoing/incoming post. It wasn't really supposed to be a weekly thing, but it became one almost without me noticing. I'm not really sure if I should continue it in the next year, or maybe just make an occasional post. I know I have quite a few snailmailing readers, so what do you guys think?


  1. I quite enjoy mail posts myself, and I've taken to doing a weekly one (but that's also because I don't half of the exciting activity that you do) and.... I lost my train of thought. LOOK OVER THERE! [Laura disappears in a puff of smoke....]

    - That's my crappy way of saying that I like your mail post, and I hope you continue it. :)

    1. Alrighty, noted. Also, very impressed by all these special effects on your comments, they are quite something!

  2. I also like the maily crafty type posts.

    1. Ok, I'm starting to feel like there's a pattern here... :D

  3. Replies
    1. Alright, I think I need to continue these... Also, nice to hear from you again!

  4. I just received the pink one. Looks even snazzier IRL!

    1. Glad it got there ok! I had to get extra creative with the envelope, since I didn't really have a lot with me at the time of writing it.
