Snail mail collective post swap

snail mail collective

Last month I signed up for the Snail Mail Collective over on Melyssa's blog, The Nectar Collective. I have always wanted to do a postal swap, and this seemed like the perfest opportunity, with people from all over the world taking part!

I was very excited to be paired with Bev from Linkouture, and we sent eachother several emails getting to know each other which was lovely!

I spent lots of time thinking about what to put in Bev's package, the theme was 'under the sea' which I found quite fun to work with. Hopefully I will be able to show you what this included soon, but I don't think Bev has received it yet, so I'd better keep it a secret until then!

I have, however, received my package from Bev! What a little treasure trove she put together! 

Here is the picture of the beautiful Jiffy bag it all arrived in...
First of all we were all told to include a post card. This is the Harvard University Boathouse which is along the Charles river in Cambridge where Bev lives. So pretty don't you think?

I love how Bev packaged lots of little things up for me, it felt like Christmas!

She also sent some stones she picked up on the beach at Cape Cod! I was going to do the same thing in my package but didn't in the end, I wish I had now! peru brooch
Bev included these because she saw I liked making my own cards, I can definitely make use of them! She also included some lovely scrapbooking paper.

  5. I love the look of this! Sending & receiving snail mail is the best! Thanks for sharing this, I think I might sign up too :-) x

  6. What a lovely parcel! I can't wait to see what you sent too :) I've not tried that chocolate but I'm sure they have it at stateside candy at the minute in a couple of flavours if you wanted more. They are UK based and sell online. Here you go I might buy some myself now you've said how good it is :) I love the packaging too. :)

  7. That is a cute bag and the chocolate sounds delicious! I'm already excited for next month :)

  8. I love the photos you took of everything!! Even though I already knew the contents, it's like I was opening it up for myself. Clearly the mail is a lot slower in the States, hoping today is my lucky day :-)
