Quiet Mail Days!

I haven't posted in a while! So sorry!I've been in such a funk. My boyfriend needs some pretty drastic surgery and it has me stressed and feeling unmotivated and sad. I keep my chin up though, because I know things will get better. You ever have one of those days where you just don't want to be a grown up anymore? That's how I feel lately! I want to be 17 again! Haha~

Strangely enough, my mailbox has been very very quiet. I had a mile pile of 20 or so letters to write. I've since replied to all but 7 of them, but yet..mail has barely been trickling in. I've gotten maybe 4 letters in the past month or so, which is a little worrisome! I've been a little discouraged with some new friends I had made..they were so excited to be pals and talked about how much we have in common, then..silence. No longer writing after one letter or 2. It's hard not to get your feelings hurt a little, but what can you do? Your truest friends will stick around no matter what! I've been pals with 3 ladies since 1997 and they are lovely. ^_^ To all my pals who don't stop writing -- thank you! You're all wonderful and kind!

That aside...here we go!

Outgoing:


This is a letter to my dear friend JJ. All in all her letter totaled about 17 or 18 pages..x_x
 
 
 This is a letter for my friend Ann. I included some memos, stickers, letter sets.. another 10+ page letter. :D

 Lots of outgoing letters~! There are 3 or 4 others, but I didn't get their pictures. :(

This is a letter to my very best friend Sarah, who is like a sister to me. I have yet to meet her in person, but I don't think that matters. We are very close and I love her like family. Her letter was about 20 pages. W e talk about EVERYTHING! She sent me an amazing package in reply with 6 rolls of tape, Halloween stickers, heart stickers, a LONG letter.. I felt so loved and spoiled. Her letters make me SO happy..we never run out of things to talk about.

The little picture next to it is an idea of how I decorate the backs of my letters. It seems like a waste of paper to just write on the fronts of these sheets, so I put my stickers and supplies to use and make the backs cute too. ^_^

Lately I've gone on an envelope making spree. I've got 3 different templates, so I've been experimenting. I've found making envelopes with vellum is really fun too. It looks amazing when you pack everything inside nicely.

Awesome, eh? :D
That's all for now..
