Alright, alright!!

cos-mo-post-al-an [koz-muh-postal-en]: adjective/noun
1. a person
who belongs to all the world; not limited to just one part of the world; can make their home anywhere in the world.
2. a person who believes fully that postage stamps and mail connect the world, regardless of where, from or to, they go.
3. the joyful experience of knowing you're a local because your mail made it to its destination

The postage stamp is truly wonderful. It can travel the world, experience the lives of a million different people, go through the doors of strangers; and never once lose sight of where it's headed.
Welcome to the land of cosmopostalan : travel, mail and words. It's a crazy little place in my corner of the woods; wherever that may be!

A Fresh Week

The weather has made a significant change. We've returned to the dismal grey, blanketed skies and lots of drizzling rain. Although not terrific for walking around town, or to play outdoor volleyball, this weather shall ensure lots of letter-writing this week!
There can never be too many letters!

This past weekend, I made some new penpals, and wrote outgoing introduction letters, complete with mailart. One is headed to the UK, and one within the States. I'm so excited to begin correspondence with both writers!
One of my two last "Ship" stamps.

The other last "Ship" stamp.

Outgoing (to UK).

Got to love it when you can use both of the Cherry Blossom Centennial stamps on an international piece!

And another outgoing (within the States). LOVE the calligraphy.

WHY hello!

Outgoing within the States.

And then some inspiration.
I collected all of the above fruit stickers from the groceries today. I am going to be using them as both inspiration, and decoration for my mailart this week. Gotta love simple stuff like that!

Penpal call is still going on! Let me know!

Send some more mail today--
