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 mentioned 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 😛
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 🙂 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 🙂
I included a super cute sheet of fox stickers( her favorite animal) and a little ”tea card” with a poem. 🙂 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 🙂
What sorts of tuck ins to you guys like to include?
