Outgoing in May

I’ve had so much fun writing letters this month! At the beginning of the month I decided to dedicate a good chunk of time to creating a stock pile of envelopes and this has saved me lots of time, allowing me to simply focus on writing letters.

This month I wrote that daunting first letter to my newest penpal in Germany, finally ticked Spain off my “sent to” list and feel I’ve made some real progress with my hand lettering and faux calligraphy.

So here are the stats: I have sent 23 postcards, 10 cards and 4 letters to a total of 19* different countries.

*(Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, England, Finland, Germany, Guernsey, Latvia, Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Slovakia, Spain, Taiwan, Ukraine and U.S.A.)

Here are some of the images…

I tend to send a lot of postcards with Guernsey scenes, but these Postcrossers were after something a bit different.

Finally got to send my succulent card to a fellow pot plant collector in Belgium.

Have you managed to send some happy mail this month?
