Snail Mail Goodness

I want to thank you all who participated and left such wonderful comments. Reading why you like snail mail so much made this past few days so much brighter! And for this, I've offered to write a letter to each and everyone of you! You don't have to write me back, just leave me your address on my email and I promise a letter will be sent!

It is really amazing how one letter in a mailbox can make a day brighter, cheer up, inspire, and just for the minutes (or maybe hours) you're with a letter everything is simply "much better."

When I was little, some 30 years ago, I used to wish for a pen pal,  I waited and waited for that someone who would write me letters. Boy did I have to wait!! I was 17 when I finally met someone who loved writing letters and beautiful papers as much as I did. She lived in the UK and I in Colombia. Those letters took a month, sometimes more to reach its destinations, but we kept at it. That is the trick to a good pen -palship, I think; "to keep at it."

O.K, the reason why you are here, (drum roll please.....)

Congratulations mi+ed, these two packages will be on your way soon!
P.S: Also Dinastia Chow Fan, I have an extra set of cards and I will give them to you so you can win that girl. A man does need nice paper to write poems to his loved one, I think!
P.S.S: Please if you would like for me to send you that letter that I promised, send me your address (my email is on the right side of the blog).

Thank you again everyone for such cool comments.
Have a wonderful day!


  1. Hi there I just found your blog and a the great info about Amsterdam. I loved reading about picking tulips so much that I pinned it on my travel board on Pinterest :) Have a great day!Jana @ 333 Days of Hand Lettering

    1. Hi Jana,
      I'm so glad you found your way here! Picking tulips is actually one of my favorite things to do here. It is really so unbelievably beautiful, that sometimes I think my pictures don't do those tulip fields any justice.
      I hope one day you get to experience it in person!
