Flowers Everywhere


How are you? I think I'm still lacking motivation, inspiration and whatnot but I'm here anyway. :D

I'm sorry for being M.I.A for so long! I've been busy organizing my life (sounds cliched but actually it's not) and, surprisingly, everything looks much clearer now. There's only one school period left (and only one exam week, yes!) and I still don't really get it. This year went by so quickly! In a couple of weeks I'll be in Rome with  my class and I'm so excited! I'm also about to get my car driving license soon (next Wednesday I hope!). That, and the struggle of finding a summer job have been my number one stress makers lately. But now I also have a summer job and it happens to be something I really love to do! There's also a lot of other exciting things about to happen in Summer. Finally I feel like I can actually breath. I love the weather outside, especially all the flowers, and those were my inspiration to edit these mail pictures haha...

So, in the middle of all the other things in my super busy high school life (haha), I've also sent mail. Occasionally, people ask me why I send mail and isn't it boring blah blah and right now I could say I'm doing this because it's my number one stress reducer. Making others happy makes me happy. :) 

All these letters etc. below are quite old already and probably they've all traveled to their destinations by now so please don't mind. :D

These three went to Poland, China and Sri Lanka:


I loved making those envelopes! I used these Finns-are-so-weird stamps:

This letter is to Shine, Chine:

This one is to Martyna, Poland:

And this one is to Suhanya, Sri Lanka:

In her last letter she sent me a magnet so I wanted to send her a magnet aswell :)

And this yellow letter I sent to Emilia, my pretty much first actual Finnish penpal ever:

Here's what was inside:

Oh, and the final chain card from the other flower themed chain, ready to be sent back to Malaysia:

 Aaand, here's the reply I got from Emilia the first Finnish penpal of mine:

I just LOVE how beautiful the envelope is! And the matching stamps! 

  On the back it says "open immediately" which is pretty much what I did as soon as I received the letter :D

I was so awed when I opened the envelope, everything was just so pretty!

And I love how she'd put all the letter papers separately (or how should I call that? xD)! For example, in that picture below it says "here you can find 5 and 6" :)


 And this letter I got from Daria, Germany:

I love how the envelope was filled with all those cute stickers, stationery and such! 

And this letter I sent to Sara, Malaysia:

The envelope looks quite bad in the picture.. But anyway, I tried a bit marbling with it and it didn't turn out the way I had hoped but I still like the result. :) I put one of those stamps on her letter too:

That's all from now. Thanks for reading!  Let's see when you'll hear from me the next time :D

  1. Tosi kivaa postia. :)

    Hienoa, että kesätyöt ja muut on nyt hoidossa! Pystyy nauttimaan keväästä ilman hirveetä stressiä... been there.

    Multakin aina välillä kysellään, että miksi ihmeessä käytän aikaani näihin postijuttuihin, MUTTA joitakin vuosia sitten päätin ottaa sellaisen linjan, että tämä on mun rakas harrastus ja olen siitä ylpeä. Yllättäen olen saanut muutaman utelijan innostumaan asiasta itsekin - yksi mun työkaveri esimerkiksi muistaa nykyään aina tulla kertomaan mulle, jos meidän toimipisteeseen on tullut myyntiin uusia postimerkkejä. :D

    1. Kiitos ihanan piristävästä kommentista! Mä oon tosissaan ihan hirmu onnellinen, että asiat alkaa vihdoin olla kunnossa ja elämä tuntuu taas hymyilevän. :) Haha, olen myös yrittänyt tosi kovasti ajatella just noin, vaikka välillä joutuukin kohtaamaan tosi oudoksuvia katseita tai vastata kaikenlaisiin kysymyksiin... Ja olen minäkin saanut kaksi kaveriani innostumaan kirjeenvaihdosta, heillä taitaa vieläkin olla molemmilla ainakin yksi kirjekaveri! :D Ihana tuo sun työkaveri!

  2. They are all beautiful, Melissa! You have a lovely blog. Warm greetings from Montreal, Canada. :)

  3. Wow, those envelopes are incredible! I admire you that you put so much effort so someone could be astonished with such a sweet thing in a mailbox.
    Many wishes from Poland!

  4. Very beautiful and eye catching. A lovely blog to read and inspire.
