Lettermo week #1

Happy Saturday guys! Finally I've got enough time to write my first Lettermo update post.
I did quite a good job this past week, sending out 9 out of 9 letters plus some extras!
Anyway let's start from my incoming mail~

I got not one, but two letters from Meredith on the same day (I'm such a lucky girl!). The first one was a postcard from Mexico City and a muñequita, a tiny Mayan doll:
It apparently has the power to relieve you from your sadness: "tell her your sorrow, put her under your pillow, sleep peacefully. On the next day, your sorrow would have done away". I think I'm in love with it.
The other thing I got from her, is a letter - super sweet, I have to add. She also sent me a bunch of lovely thing:

an handmade journal, which I love, can you guess who's on the cover? ☺
And a lot of ephemera for the project 29, perfect to add to her page in smash book ♥
Then, I got a letter from Marjolijn in the Netherlands:
in a lovely handmade envelope, and filled with coffee, tea and sugar, that granted me very enjoyable snack time while reading what she wrote.
Kudos for those pretty stamps!
I also received a swap I did with Steph in Germany. We had to buy a disposable camera, take pictures around out city and mail it off, but we decided to add some random goodies to the swap as well, and that's (a very small part) of what she sent me: 
Last but not least, I also got another swap card from Jenni, and I love it so much!
Ok, now to the incoming, sent from Feb 1st to Feb 9th~
Day 1 - My part of the swap for Steph:
Day 2, 3 & 4 - A letter to Sara in Portugal, to H in the UK and a swap with Alice in Taiwan:
Day 5 & 6 - letters for Julia in Germany, and Maddie in the UK
Day 7 - A birthday parcel for Elisse in Belgium (which, on a side note, I would have wanted to decorate it a bit but the post office charges a crazy amount of money for "unconventional" looking parcels, so.. I hope that what's inside will make up for it!):
Day 8 - A Gal-entine's day swap with a fellow Italian via swap-bot:
Day 9 - A letter to Thea in Norway:
Extra day - Etsy orders:
That's if for my first week of the Lettermo! How was yours?

Have a good weeked,
