An Abundance of Outgoings.

I’ve had quite the busy weekend what with picking up a long shift at work and getting caught up in my outgoing mail. All the swap bot swaps I previously mentionedย had partners assigned this weekend and became due for send out so I scrambled a little to get those ready for send out.

Here’s a stuffed envelope going to Arkansas to a very friendly lady who loves pink, sewing and girly things..hence the dress! Her address is in the apron ๐Ÿ˜›


Next up, a reply to Kerry, my geek pal! I’ve been truly enjoying geeking up my outgoing mail to her! I wont post her current outgoing envelope because I do not want to ruin the surprise, but here is the last one which was a first letter ๐Ÿ™‚ Just as well since I forgot to snap a picture of the contents before sealing up the current one!


And finally, fresh off the messy crafting/computer desk is my letter to Lisanne. I put an extra special effort into this one since she has been sending me all kinds of great goodies lately and I felt like it was time to return the fun. Inspired by the wonderful work of Devalayermail, I went for a colour theme and although it didn’t turn out quite as awesome as hers do, I’m pretty darn happy with the results of my first try! I suppose it helps that I just love turquoise too ๐Ÿ™‚

wpid-img_20150222_224842.jpgI included a super cute sheet of fox stickers( her favorite animal) and a little ”tea card” with a poem. ๐Ÿ™‚ Since she lives in the Netherlands, I have to be mindful of the weight and size of the envelope to avoid an icky surprise at the postage meter. Now I have 2 more letters to write and I will be all caught up! Next time I will be a less of an eager beaver and be careful not to sign up for a bunch of swaps with the same send date, it’s much more enjoyable when you aren’t afraid of missing the deadline ๐Ÿ™‚

What sorts of tuck ins to you guys like to include?

      Yes! I thought of you yesterday as I was going through the drawers at work. My work peeps like to hoard things forrreverrr so we had these really old FRAGILE tags and old PRIORITY POST stickers as well as super old rainchecks and stuff..I thought you might be interested in those?
