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!

Allow me to begin this post by extending my apologies for how long it has taken me to reach this post. A lot of things have been very busy lately and I just haven't had the time I have wanted to dedicate to my blog. I do aim, at least for while this period of craziness continues, to write at least twice a week! Thank you, as always, for your patience.

Here are some outgoings from about a week ago, some of which have already reached their recipients:

I love the Halloween theme, and the upcycled magazine styles. I am also loving using my always!

A letter to S., in the U.S.A.

Another example of magazine usage--this one to L., in the U.S.A.

I found out from my good pal Bill at the postoffice, after this letter was returned to me, that it was too thick and I needed more postage on it! This one was a $1.95 piece! Notice the MadLibs writing for the mail envelope part? Love recycling!

A first-letter to new penpal S., in Australia. Using faux-postage stamps, paper-tape, magazine cutouts and my typewriter for the full effect. LOVE IT!

And, of course, it needed a wax seal!

A cheery cherry reply to a first letter from N., in the U.S.A.

And some optimal usage of my typewriter stamp to do just that!

Letter to my dear friend E., in the U.S.A.

Aerogramme to my dear friend C., in the U.S.A.

I have also received a lot of lovely mail, which I shall post next! I sure hope everyone has had some lovely mail-days! Best and cheers!
