You Have Mail

Since child hood ... I have always loved mail. Growing up, I had an assortment of penpals ... I still do - waves go out to England & France! Nothing like pretty envelopes & cards in the mailbox - complete with beautiful stamps! Given the state of the US Postal Service - I am on a one woman mission to keep them in business!

One of my latest fascinations is Postcrossing. I am receiving & sending postcards from all over the world! To date, I have sent to Russia, Germany, Poland & the US. I have received lovelies from US, Taiwan, Germany & Canada. Seriously, who doesn't like to receive something other than bills in their mailbox?

I think that this is a perfect school or scouting project. What a neat way to learn about different places!! My latest received:

I have never been to Alaska .... but, I am sure glad this person is trying to keep the US Postal Service up & running too!

Cool! This looks like fun, true, who doesn't love mail? and international mail is even better, I often hanker to order things on etsy from exotic locations just for the nifty postage. this would be cheaper.

What an exciting thing to do! Snail mail is such a lost art anymore. I have one pen pal that I have been writing to for about a year. I so look forward to her letters.
