tea for one


i have had so many posts in my mind, and have taken many pictures too for this blog,
but still - no update... but i rather write here when i'm in the right mood than do
it to another thing to add to "must do-list"... that list is far to long already!

at saturday i was shopping in my town with a friend
i bought three things that i really liked, so i have to show you guys them,
even if they aren't snail-mail related...

the book's name in english is "angels in my hair"
the incenses are one of my absolute favourite, if you like incense and haven't tried those, you should!
they are from the "nag champa" series
the cup or mug is from an indian-inspired store,
you might not see it on the picture, but it's a reaaal big cup!
perfect for tea for one :)

swap-bot fun!

good afternoon everyone!

this month i did a pagan/wiccan swap with a girl from spain via swap-bot
we should send pagan/wiccan related stuff
(like incense, gemstones, art, jewelry or craft items related to the theme)
i sent her a beautiful neckless with a carneol stone, smudge sage and my favourite incense
and i added some extras - serveral different teas, beads (in her favourite colour)
and a picture printet on a special photopaper with a post-it effect
she liked zombies, skulls and such stuff too, and the picture i sent i found on internet
i think it fit her perfect!
here it is:

sadly i had no time to take any photos of this swap/package...
feels a little sad, since it was really nice things that i would like to show you,
but done its done, no need to cry over it now!

the deadline for sending the package was the 31th of october...
i sent her a message one day before and asked how everything went with her package,
and some days later (after the deadline) she answer that she couldn't send it
before tuesday (the 6th of november)
we have had three weeks to send the package before the deadline,
so i have to admit that i feel a little bit disappointed over this...
but i hope she sending me nice things!
i will show you pictures when i receive it!

im also currently in a swap that's named "promoting your blog!"
we have five partners each, and we should send them an email with a link to our blog(s)
and then they have to check it out and left a comment!
i think i will do the email today, and i have already received my partners blogadresses,
so i have a lot of blogreading/commenting to do :)

to my beloved grandma

today (the 22nd of october) it's my grandma's birthday!
sadly my family and relatives lives 4 hours car-driving away,
and i had no opportunity to celebrate her "in real life"

but i gave her a phonecall today and told her to wait for something in the mail :)

here is the card i made:


the word "till" is swedish and means "to"
my grandma is from finland, "isoäiti" is the word for grandma in finnish
i don't speak any finnish tho, but luckliy she speaks swedish too
she turned 74 years, but she is very active for her age i think
oh, i miss her so much!

snailmail from the heart x 2

here comes a post that i have think of writing for maaany weeks now...

more precious letters from my friend sophie tiger <3

and a dear friend that i met online for many years ago
have celebrated her birthday (last month - september) so i have sent her a birthdaycard

the envelope was really beautiful too, if you ask me :)

my iron fairy chante

for some months ago i got a such a beautiful gift from my mum!

have you ever heard of the iron fairies?
here are a link to their website (it's a very nice website, it make you feel the magic)
they are hand crafted from iron ore

there are about 25 different fairies, all of them have their own personality,
and like/care for different things in nature 

my fairy's name is chante, she loves tree ferns and she is a quiet, mystical and tranquil fairy
here is her poem:

I´m Fairy Chante, a goddess in green,

For I live in the tree fern, but am rarely seen.

By day I am working the leaves I clean.

By night I am sleeping I feel like a queen!

With a bright umbrella of delicate fronds,

My fern home likes water, we live near ponds.

Look up! Look down! Keep your eyes peeled!

It´s me over here! Your princess revealed!

when you take your fairy home it's important that you place her so she will see
the next days sunrise, since she was made deep under the ground
and never have seen the sun before
you also get a bottle of magic fairy dust that you should sprinkle over her,
that sets her spirit free

i put her in my window where the sun goes up in the morning yesterday
(or, it's 3 AM, so it was two days ago now...) however, it was at monday i did this

and here she is! cute, isn't she?
i hope she will like it here at our home,
i told her that she was free to fly on adventures whenever she wanted to
and she could come back any time to rest and be with us

welcome home, chante!
hope you enjoyed the sunrise, soon you will see another one!

i decided to share this video with you, i have loved it for a long time
and it really fits in a mailrelated blog because it's about two (long lost) penpals
my life and mood isn't exactly cheery for the moment,
but some mails always put a smile in both my face and in my heart
so thank you for keep sending me letters! i working on a reply to
my friend julia right now, she sent me a letter in the middle of july
guess that says something about how little i write nowdays...
my friend karin celebrated her birthday the 12th of august,
she has now got her present and the birthdaycard i made for her,
so i can upload pictures of it!
("grattis" is the swedish word for "congratulations")

and the 19th of august, my friend sophie-tiger (her "nickname" is tiger) turned 25 years!
i sent her a birthdayletter

i picked some scratingsupplies as a gift

and on the envelope i used my huuuge chinese skills ;)

haven't write any letter or sent any package for some days now
but today i register a bunch of postcards via postcrossing
some of them had been travelling for over hundred days!
i haven't been active on that website for a long, long time now
i also wrote three postcards, one to malaysia, one to america and the third one to poland

it's my friends birthday tomorrow, so i have done a birthdaycard to her,
but she reads my blog, so i can't upload that picture yet :)

dear mailwoman, will you marry me?


haven't found my inspiration-muse yet... but i'm trying anyway, and sometimes it works!
but if you see her, please tell her that i really miss her and need her badly!

i have sent a letter to a lady in the united states via swap-bot
it was a swap named "3 wishes", you should write about ten things you would like to receive
(like candy, stationary, stickers e.g) and then your partner should pick at least three of
those things and send to you! lyanne (whom was my partner that i sent to) wrote that she
loved roses, pink, fairies, antique keys and chocolate (and some more things)
so i chose those things for her:

there are some things inside the envelope already,
like tiny roses for scrapbooking and a butterfly-bookmark

here is some mail that i have received this week and the week before:

one day the mailwoman (gender equality, go go!!) came with three swap-bot letters
i was like overthrilled!

look at this lovely stamps!
dosen't associate them with usa tho...

fell in love with these stickers!

now it's time for more letter-writing!
but before i end this, i want you to hear a beautiful (but sad) song in swedish
the titel "vintern blev för lång" means "the winter last too long"

she sings (my bad translation...)

"shoot down every bastard
who ever fooled you
walk them down with your boot
even tho your armor feels small"

OK, i admit, it sounds much better in swedish, i find it very hard to translate lyrics!

hi again!

i just published the post below, but since there was more mail i decided to make two posts of this

 i ordered beads from a swedish website, they came in my mailbox today!

the picture on the beads aren't very good, they look much more beautiful in real life!

this is a picture from the website of one kind of the beads,
much more interesting, don't you think?

here is sirius, one of my two cats!
he is SO curious of everything!! esspecially of my mail,
i had to put the beads away fast after i had photographed them!

this is all for now! hope you are having a nice week!

letters from two dear friends

today i have slept all day long, until half past nine PM
my cat sirius woke me up up by stepping all over my body
in my dreams i thought "oh, angelmassage!" (haha!)
but it was my own little stubby cherub sirius, just wanted some attention from his mother

however, i was awake around one o'clock this afternoon
and i saw a lot of mail on my doormat! yiiiihaa!

there was a letter with an unknown handwriting,
and then when i read who it came from i recognize it!
it was my frist letter from a friend i meet this year in another town
she's still living there and i have moved back to my old town (kristianstad)
so we decided to penpaling, loved to her from her!

and she had put the cutest stickers on the envie!

OK, this is a bit embarrassing to write,
but i have received another precious letter from one of my best friends - emily
it feels embarrassing 'cause i haven't write to her for a long time
my muse for writing seems to have take some vacation!
i really need her back soon, i have a lot of letters to write and reply!
emily - there will be a letter for you soon! i have something in mind!

look what i found inside!
a real cute unwritten postcard, tons of tea, a beautiful letter
and a little cellophanebag with tiny, tiny scrapbookingsupplies!

this is what i found inside the bag:

thank you for those lovely letters, my friends!

swap-bot and postcard

today i sent a package to molly in USA via swap-bot,
the shipping cost 10 $, why is it so expensive? it weight around 300 gram

yesterday was a very nice mailday! i received this absolute amazing card from my friend julia,
we haven't heard of each other for a long time, so it felt special to read it

and from molly (the one I sent the package too) came a letter too!
the mailwomen tried to put it in my letter slot,
but it didn't fit so she knocked on my door, lucklily i was home so i could
get it right in my hands instead of picking it up at the post office
here is what was inside: (loved it!)

Tuesday, July 3, 2012


it's a dear friends birthday soon, so i made a card for her
pretty simle but i think it's kinda sweet

(since the text in my blog isn't comes in on the place i want it to,
i will take the pictures last today again)

i wrote a postcard and send a friend some pins of a swedish singer
i still like him, but not so much that i wear these pins
hope them will find a good home at my friends bag or jacket :)

i have some projects at swap-bot going on too!
i'm doing a private swap for a newbie - molly, to get up her rating
we shall send some candy, scrapbookingpapers and other goodies
of course there are pictures coming!
and then we have erica, my new penpal from kentucky in USA
i'm waiting for my first letter from her, and then i should answer her too :)
