Week 16

Hello beauties!It's been rather a tough week for me. Luckily, the coursepaper I have been working on for the past 2 months is finished as of now and our studies supervisor is mugging us off with the day of the defense. It was supposed to be today but she called me two hours before the settled time and cancelled it! We were all rage! :DIn other news, it was a good week in terms of post. I received 12 postcards and one letter from my Canadian pen pal, Kilmery. She sent me a letter and bits of the national Canadian newspaper. I didn't have the time to read it yet but I will tomorrow. I presume it is rather interesting.The postcards came here from very many different places:  
Hong Kong, the USA from Sarala via Sendsomething, Germany, one more from the states and Ecuador! The postcard ID is 989! How cool that is,huh? :D
Earlier this week I'd also received postcards from Hungary, Switzerland, Romania and Vermont(usa) from Gary as a thank you postcard via Postcrossing.

The postcard with a cat on it came here from Taiwan, the one with the marshmallows is from the Netherlands and the last one is from there as well and shows Friesland flag!

Thank you very much for sending me postcards and letters, they make me rather happy and inspire like anything else :)
Well, as I've been behind my correspondence for a while now, there've been a lot to reply to and I did a lot of writing and creating stuff. 

Today I've been feeling creative and my creativity mode has definitely been turned on! :D
I sat trying to make a vintage envelope but ended up making 12 of them! Look at these beauties! Aren't they lush? hahaha

The back part is not usual as well. I love this line in the middle :) It looks like a little ribbon tied up around the envelope :) Ahh

I had a lovely day out with the girls today. We went to dinner at a local cozy cafe and then went to the park, been at the top of the Ferris Wheel! The view was fantastic! Also, me and Dilya went to a ride called 'Pirate' 
It was rather scary to go to but I so much enjoyed it. You sit in a boat which starts to go back and forth, higher and higher and the highest it swings is semicircle! I presume I had very much adrenalin thrown into my blood :D hahaha
Anyways, this post has gotten too long, hasn't it? The last thing for today, on my way home I dropped in a shop to buy something to tea and got these chocolate sticks with almond. They are all gone by now :(

I hope you've had a lovely week. Remain positive and write comments and stuff.

P.S. I have a little writing blog. I do not do anything major. Just post some poetry of mine.
Have a look if you have the time and tell me what you think :) xx

Hey peeps,
Would somebody be interested in buying postcards you might see in my previous post?
I've just found out that,for instance, in the USA a postcard costs around $1. AH woah. that is quite expensive. Here the cost varies from 8 to 15 rubles that is more or less half a dollar!
The delivery would cost you 3$. If somebody(not necessarily from the states) is interested,please,write a comment below.
Meanwhile, I am answering to this massive pile of letters!
I'll keep you posted ;)

Week 15

Ah I know I know the week is not over but I am desperate to share with you what I've received so far. I ordered some stuff from two Russian postal shops the previous week and the goodies arrived today!
Take a look at the first one. There are retro-craft envelopes(they also gave me +4 extra envelopes!How nice of them!) and 5 peach envelopes and 5 orange ones :)
The second one contains 35 postcards! They are absolutely lush! The quality is very nice and the colours are bright.
Even though I still have some good 25 postcards from my previous order, I could not help myself but to buy these beauties!
I have got some mail as well. Not as much as I hoped to get. Anyway, Here is a gorgeous postcard from Singapore sent via Postcrossing.
Another one is from Belarus and is well nice too.
And the last one came here from Taiwan and I presume this is the third postcard of Taipei 101 in my collection.
Due to my studies and the coursework, I can't send out lots of mail but I will definitely sort it out this weekend(hopefully,ha!) I have also bought more stamps as promised with Olympic Symbols of the leopard,hare and the bear.
All the rest have already been put on the envelopes and You are likely to see them in my next post.
Ah, I noticed all the peeps love tapes. Here is my little stash..
I have forgotten to take a picture of the others. I will post it later.
I will try to keep you guys posted and if you enjoy reading my posts, do write a comment below.

Hello mates :)
I know it has been ages since I posted on here.
I am still interested in snail mail and I am quite an addict.
Along with my studies I send my postcards via postcrossing.com and I do not forget my lovely pen pals! I am sorry I am bits behind of my mailings and some great pile of letters-to-be-replied is lying on my desk and yet patiently waiting for me.
I have taken pictures of almost everything(not all though) I have been getting from beautiful people from all over the world and I will likely to upload them tomorrow as Friday has finally come!
I am making two envelopes to The Missive Maven and Rin Dawson as I write.
I hope you lot are doing well. Much love from Siberia!
Annie B.
