Another Lovely Mail Day

Time for another mail post! I finally went and got some more .98 stamps, so I have some outgoing Postcrossing postcards. Plus I am super excited to say I have a few more pen pals now (Yay!!), so I got to add a few more tallies for that 101 in 1001 goal. But on to the good stuff...

Outgoing Postcrossing:

And a couple of my latest Swap-Bot sends:

The Bella ATC I made

This was for a Mail Art swap

I decided to host my 1st swap on Swap-Bot and went with a "Mail Art For Beginners" theme. I was worried no one would sign up for it, but as of today, I'm #3 on the Top Swaps list!!!! : )

And here are the change of address cards I sent out to all the family:

And now my incoming goodies, starting with Postcrossing:

From Joy in Taiwan: "I think 'beauty' is the warm concern or a sweet present from my best friends. It makes me touched!!"

The cute back of Joy's postcard : )

Lovely flowers from Russia

I love Russian stamps!
From Nadia in Belarus: "Beauty is something that makes you smile! My friends, sun, cat... so many things : )"

Pretty flower stamps

I'm loving all the angel postcards I get from Postcrossing!!

Another pretty flower stamp

Lovely park in Sao Paulo

Weird and awesome stamps : )

And my latest one, from South Dakota
 And here are my incoming Swap-Bot swaps:

The Bella ATC I received : )

A pretty card sent along for a Bookmark Swap

The lovely bookmark I received

Even the stamp was gorgeous : )

This was included in a Say a Prayer For Me swap... So sweet : )
And here are a couple of letters from two of my new pen pals:

From Sara in Italy

From Trina in Ohio
And that's it for this installment. I'm excited about my new pen pals and about all the swaps I'm currently signed up for at!! Until next time... hope you have a Lovely Mail Day!
