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!

This post has been long awaited.
Here it is.

This week, I have been sending out a whole lot of Thank You cards after the wonderful events of my birthday. I received some colourful stationary from a friend, so that enclosed many of my letters. I also made a Christmas-themed letter for a penpal in LA., and;

I used "Celebration" stamps for birthday Thank You's;
I used "Love" stamps for birthday Thank You's;
I used "Holiday Bauble" stamps for a birthday Thank You and a Holiday card.

I have been following, and I can't get over just how much I am loving all of the new stamp unveilings. 2013 is going to be a huge year for postage!!

Next post will be an attempt at documenting all of the incoming I have received over the past month and not posted about. It'll be a fairly long post. You ready for it?

Spread love--

2013 Stamp Program

Emancipation Proclamation

The 2013 Stamp Program is making me so excited. I can't wait to storm to the post office, see my good bud Billy the Postman, and order a pane of each stamp design--particularly the Emancipation Proclamation stamps, the Sealed With Love stamps -- right in time for Valentine's Day!!, and the Global Forever stamps--they're circular! I have been following for updates on the new stamps everyday! I wonder what stamps will be revealed on my birthday (Dec 12th)! It's all so mysterious!

Don't you find it so exciting??

Something that I am finding interesting, however, is the increase in postage prices. Effective January 27th, the postage rates will change. An international one-ounce letter will be $1.10 USD, and a Forever stamps will be 46c.

Here's hoping that everyone sends double as much mail this year as they did last year to keep those rates from increasing again!!

I shall be posting soon my incoming and outgoing--with my birthday coming up, there shall be quite a few indeed!!

I am currently feeling like a mega-goon about not having posted my promised updates for the past two weeks. Please know that things are crazy on my side of this computer screen, and I'll be getting on to posting a proper, updating post as soon as I can!! I've just been super busy!

My birthday is next week (woot! 12/12/12!), and it's going to be a crazy week then as I don't know when I'm going to have a lot of time to post, but I shall definitely work on it! The post is coming soon--I promise!!

Would love to hear from, and hope you're well!

Cheers--and send more mail,
Ms. Always Traveling
