lettermo May week #5

As every month's final post about the lettermo, I feel both sad and accomplished.
Every month I love this project more and more, and every month I get to know new friends and there's nothing better!

As tradition, here's the stats:
This month was waaay better than April in terms of incoming. I received about the double of the letters I received last month, not to mention that a couple of them where wonderful packages <3
Anyway, let's see the last letter I sent out this month, sigh.

something good

Hello everyone!
Those of you who read my last post, might know that I received a mysterious package last week that I had to wait before tell you what it is.
Well, today's the day, and I'm incredibly excited to tell you about it!

A quick recap: the first week of April, I signed up for the Send Something Good project, promoted by three fellow bloggers: Gentri Lee, kaitlyn and Kristy. Everyone got assigned a secret blogger to whom send a special package.

The blogger I sent the package to, was Tamika from Austria; my secret blogger, instead, was Michelle from Texas!
Today is finally the link-up/reveal day, and I can show you the awesome box I received!

SMASH my mailbox

Hello you guys, happy saturday! I hope you're all having a lovely weekend!
I'm pretty much in a good mood today, just by thinking about of the wonderful surprises I've received in the mail this week!

But let's proceed with order:

On Monday, I received Kelly's letter. She was part of the past lettermo, and according to the date on the stamp, she sent this letter April 26th! Postal service is ridiculus sometimes.
Anyway the letter is lovely, starting from the cute paper she used, to the adorable things she included: instant pictures of her two kitties (♥) and some stickers. If you're reading this, Kelly, I'm sorry for the delay and I will surely reply asap :3

Lettermo May week #4

Hello my dear penpallers!
Is May being kind with you? With me, not really. I've been sick for two weeks now, and as it wasn't enough I have exams to do at Uni.. I had an hard time keeping up with you all, so I'm sorry if you're still waiting for a reply or a letter from me, but the odds haven't been in my favours lately.
However I'm eventually feeling slightly better so I should have all the due letters sent by the end of the month!

For those reasons, I also don't have much photographic material to show you, because I forgot/was too tired to take pictures everyday.

Anyway let me show you the few pictures I took:

mailbox madness!

Hello there!
Mail-wise, this week has been very satisfying and I received letters every other day! A true record for me.
The first thing I've received is this batch of stationery paper I ordered off La Papierre.

It's a lovely shop with a lot of different letter set, and I wanted to buy something since.. forever, and now that I've finally did it, I couldn't be happier! I really love every single one of the designs (I bought a grab bag, because I couldn't decide!). Julie, the owner, also has a blog called "penpal of the week", which is a very original source to find new penpals or even just to lurk and snoop all the pretty letters that she sends/receive :)

tea in my mailbox!

Hello again, fellow mail lovers :)
how's your postal life going this week? As for me, my mailbox has been filled with some pretty awesome mail that I can't wait to show you!

First, I've received this lovely teapot postcard and tea bags from Elisabeth in Germany :) I'm particularly excited to try the cherry flavoured one, I've never tasted it before!

This is not the only tea I've found in my mailbox, though..

lettermo May week #2

Hello folks :)
as you might have noticed, I skipped the first week of mailing this month. Incroyable, I know.. but I don't even know what happened and why I actually skipped it. I'm just forgetful and my remembrall was out of reach.
Anyway, starting from last Monday I've sent all the due letters, and all the ones for the rest of the week are laying here ready to be released in the world.
Here's the pictures :]

bunnies in my mailbox

Contrary to last week, this one was quite good in terms of incoming mail. However, some letters are still missing who knows where, and it really pisses me off, but I still want to believe that they'll arrive sooner or later.

This week I've found quite a few surprises in my mailbox. The first was Maggie's letter:

commissions: open + request a letter May

Hi guys, I apologise for this post that will be a shameless self-promotion, but if I want to keep my letter project going, I need funds. That's why I decided to start working on commissions. Here's a list of the available things:
