Penpals supplies swap #2

The first ‘Emergency kit for your penpals’ swap was so much fun I had to join the second one!

The swap had to contain-
2 different letter sets : 2 sheets of each kind + matching envelope

5 envelopes
-2 store bought
– 2 hand made – sender choice
– 1 airmail

5 airmail stickers

5 address labels

Outgoing

Sent to France:

Pink butterfly and geometric writing sets, Paris themed labels ( yes, to France, but they’ll look appropriate when she sends them? I hope…and I couldn’t find many nice ones around), and some more boring labels, a variety of envelopes, and an extra city scene postcard.

Sent to Belgium:

The same writing paper as before (both recipients liked turquoise and pinks), the same labels, and a different envelope selection but still made from old calendars and magazines. I liked the marbled postcard, and it makes a fun greeting ๐Ÿ™‚

Incoming

Received from Belgium:

A very cute folding letter set, a strawberry postcard, colourful labels, some great envelopes, a selection of airmail stickers, very bright letter sets, a teabag and some airmail decorations. This was a great envelope to receive, so many nice things to use ๐Ÿ™‚

Received from Scotland:

I just checked and Glasgow is only 75 miles closer than central Belgium, so not much of a shorter journey for this lovely envelope of goodies! This is a very floral collection of pretty envelopes, lots of stickers, dramatic looking writing sets, and a very pretty hummingbird note card – I’m not sure if I should send it or add it to my bird card collection…

Another successful swap! I’ll have to get letter writing ๐Ÿ™‚
