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!

Stay A While?

As I get closer and closer towards the crazy deadlines for the crazily busy things going on in my life right now, I can't help but feel a little ache for every letter that gets delayed. I am so used to writing/replying straight away to letters that staring at my pile of "just-a-waiting-on-you" can get a little sad.

Unfortunately, I have to prioritise right now. And that means that letters--as much as I love them (which is A LOT)--and writing long, photography-inclined posts may not be the call of the day for the next month. And that's okay. I'm going to try my hand at being small, concise and quick--trying to provide little posts that will bring a smile and, hopefully, a laugh.

We've all got a lot going on. Letters are never second-best.
But time has to be used wisely.

So I'm going to do just that.

Stay a while? I promise I'll write you as soon as I can.

Bugs and Ink | Outgoing March

I know that it has been a horrendous long time since I last posted, but these past months have been some of the craziest, busiest and most rewarding that I've experienced in a fair while. With that being said, here is the outgoing for this weekend:

For two dear people in my life, C. and T. in United States.

I enjoyed the simple red accents on these pieces.

For my dear friend H. in Australia, I took inspiration from BUGS and some colour-coordinated washi tape!

One bug was the Australian Cicada...

and the other was a Belizian...somethingarather!

Four similar letters on their way out to J., S., L., and E., all in the United States.
I enjoyed using both the Emancipation Proclamation stamps and the new Sealed With Love stamps!
A close up on one of the four envelopes, all which were a little bit different, but still had similar themes.

And, for the letter to H, for stamps, I used the Lady Bird "Plant for more Beautiful Cities." Love it.

What mail did YOU send this weekend?
Send mail, send love--
