It was my husbands birthday yesterday, and a few cards came his way. A real ugly one (drawn football shoes), a funny one (picture taken at a funny moment at work) and a real pretty one (from me and the kids). Birthday cards always tend to appear on our piano for some reason. Our piano who is very very out of tune, but we sort of got used to it just being there and never being used anymore. Well we use it to stack toys that are in the way and for birthdaycards. And for our vintage recordplayer which we still use when we are in a vintage mood! We still own lots of albums from our teens we never got rid off. Just because the feeling of vinyl is so much better than a glossy cd. And the feeling of putting a record on it, turn back the arm thing and the record starts spinning, and then at the right moment and the right place you have to put the needle on the spinning record, and then you sigh from relief when you managed it without a scratch on the record. Well, that feeling.

After yet another difficult day at work I needed some cheering up. My car sort of took itself to the tiny, but ever so cute shop in a small cute old town nearby. The owner sells stuff I never seem to find somewhere else. And a lot of great postcards! Nothing makes my day more than beautiful pictures! We got chatting about mail. How some people don't appreciate handwritten beautiful cards and even throw them away! And the sheer pleasure when good mail arrives and how different that feeling is from email or Facebook. This was just what I needed!

I've send out a snailmail via TJP (Tante Jannies Postkamer). You register and receive an adress to send some creative mail, when the recipient registers it on the site, you will receive a mail from someone else. Sort of like postcrossing, but then for creative mail. Well, it's my first time, so we'll see.
I've put a lot of purple stuff inside it!

In my local shop, where they sell almost everything on 10 square meters, I found this tucked away in a corner which I have always overlooked! Vintage airmal stationary! Original price was in Guldens, our currency before the Euro arrived. Guess this was lying in this shop like forever, by the looks of the package. Only at home, I realised I was charged in Euros in what was the original Gulden price. One Euro was 2,25 Gulden......oh well, wanted it anyway.

My sweet colleague sent me a smile! I'm experiencing a bit of a difficult time at work, but my sweet colleague was very thoughtful! Isn't that just sweet! It definitely made me smile.
This week my snailmail for Marja went on it's way. I've wrapped it all together in some red see through paper. Unwrapping is part of the fun!

It's an initiative from the blog http://thenectarcollective.com/
You sign up at http://thenectarcollective.com/the-snail-mail-collective/ for a month and get assigned a partner which whom you have some email contact before making your package. Each month has a theme, in august it was "under the sea". Well, I've used a bit of creative freedom, but can't reveal yet what I've made......
I was signed up with Andi from http://andispeople.com/ She designs her own stationary, how cool is that! Well, she's also a yoga teacher, teacher and aquarobic teacher and mum of three kids! A busy lady!
