More letters!

No, I didn't go to the post office and get more letters, yet!  I did sit down and write a stack of letters today.  I have one more to do and then I'll have them all done.  Since I had so many, I decided to type them.  I prefer handwriting, but with 12 letters, I knew my hand would give out.  I didn't want to just write some and type others.  To be fair to all my pals, I just typed them all!  I figured that would be the best way to do it.  I got a book of stamps today so I can mail the letters tomorrow.

I went to Starbucks to get a drink and bring it home to sip on while writing my letters.  Again, when I didn't plan to stay, one of my two favorite spots was open. Figures! Oh well!  I got my drink and came home and enjoyed it.  It lasted until after all the letters were done.  The last letter that I need to do is  a new pal.  I always send new pals a 'new pal' letter that is typed and include a small handwritten letter in it.  I'll do that later so that it can go out with the other letters.  This is a new international pen pal and I've used all my international stamps. Oops!  I'll probably just put regular stamps on it to make it go.

In other news, I ordered a cute little mini messenger bag.  I've been waiting all weekend for the tracking to update.  It finally did today and it's at the post office.  That means it should be delivered tomorrow! YAY!  I found it when looking at different things on Amazon. It was only $10 and I had just gotten a $5 gift card for Amazon so I bought it.  I can't wait to see it.  It's pretty small according to the description.  I'll post pictures tomorrow.

Okay, I'm out of here.  I need to do a few more things and then I need to write that last pen pal.  I also want to work on my bullet journal.  See you tomorrow! :)


Welcome back!

Please forgive my long delay in posting.  I haven't posted here since September.  I was sick during August and September and got very behind on everything.  I even got behind on my pen pal letters and this blog (and my main blog) too!  I plan to get back into posting at my blogs more often.

I am now caught up with pen pal letters.  I have recently sent out some letters to potential new pals.  I have heard back from one and I'm writing her back soon.  I also got matched up at LWA and I have a new pal from Germany to write.  Yay!  I hope to write letters either tomorrow on Wednesday. If Wednesday, I'll probably go to Starbucks.  

Since I posted last, I have purchased a new desk.  I love it and I've been writing all my letters from here.  I miss my Starbucks visits though, so I hope to get back to those soon. I'll be sitting in Starbucks, writing letters and sipping on a Cascara latte.  I tried these recently and they are GOOD!

I also hope to get back to posting ideas here for people who like to pen pal.  Writing letters is great fun.  I have updated my pen pal ad at a few of the sites I'm listed at and hope to get some new pen pals from that.  I have several great pen pals that I got last year, but I've also lost some.  I hate to start writing to a great pal and then lost them.  A few of my favorites changed their address and my letters were sent back. I'm hoping that they will send an updated address as I miss hearing from them.

I still would like to have more pen pals.  It's such fun to hand write letters!  Okay, I've actually done an update.  Go me!  I want to make another post with some cool stamps I got a few months ago. Look for that up next!


New stamps!

I went to the post office earlier this month to get some stamps.  The lady working was really nice.  She pulled out a bunch of different stamps for me to choose from.  She was enthusiastic about them, too!  That was cool.  I got a sheet of 4 of the planet stamps. (This block featuring Pluto) and a sheet of 16 of the National parks stamps.  I love getting new and interesting stamps!  After I purchased these, a pen pal sent me a letter with a planet stamp.  Hers was Jupiter!  Very cool.  I took a picture of the stamp sheets to share:

Stamps!

I received my postal order today of stamps.  I got a sheet of the International moon stamps and I also got the new Soda Fountain favorites.  These are such nifty stamps:

The banana split ones are really big.  The others are pretty much regular size.  It's a cute collection of stamps.  I love getting fun stamps for my letters!


New Stamps!

I was going to buy some stamps at my local post office today and then realized that the local one I go to isn't open on Saturday! Phooey!  Oh well, I'm sort of glad now, though.  Why?  I found these beauties at USPS.com:

I ordered a sheet of 20 and I also ordered a sheet of International stamps.  These Soda Fountain ones are a new release.  They say they were just released on June 30!  I love them.  Awesome stamps are fun!
