Incoming mail ^__^

The last two weeks were a bit busy with finishing papers and uni starting again^^

Some of the letters/swaps I received: 

I swapped Pokemon ATCs with an indonesion friend from postcrossing forum ^__^
They are sooooo cute <3
The Pikachu on the back is a food package postcard :D
I started collecting food package postcards with cute characters so this one fits right in ^__^

I participated in the Offers&Request RR and received these cool cards from Detective Conan :D

The one on the left is from the Japan - Other countries Tag. The Japanese are usually very 
fast tagged so I am only able to tag once or twice a year. I especially love the soft pastel colors :)
I think it's made with water colors.
The postcard in the middle is from my postcard pal from Japan. Do you recognize Mr. Fuji.
I love calling Mount Fuji Mister Fuji as he's called Fuji-san in Japanese and san could
 also mean  Mister or Miss. :D
The card on the right is from a Lithuanian friend :D The cat is sooo cute, right? Right :D

And here's a letter and postcard from my new penpal from Japan. ^^
She has a german boyfriend so she also learns german and mixes 
some german sentences with english sentences^^
I was looking for one who enjoys art so I was happy to start a new friendship with her.

And I also received a letter from a penpal in Japan I already write to for about a year and a half^^
I was very surprised when I read some German sentences in the beginning :D

And this is a reply from an america penpal I met through the penpal RR ^^

I also send some replies to my penpal pals:
The postcard is from the Manga 31 I Dream by Arina Tanemura, I like the story so far so I wanted to share something about it ^^ I read in her swap-bot profile that she likes Chai teas so I sent one to try. :)
As she likes cats I send her a roller friend. It is something to roll cables on e.g.ear phone cables^^.

I'll be sending my replies very soon :D

Incoming ^o^//

Recently I'm slowing a bit down with swaps and tags from postcrossing 
and swap-bot to focus on my studies but also on my penpal letters and sending some happy mail to my former classmates ^__^ (but I'll still do some swaps & tags from time to time ^__^)

Last Saturday I received a lovely little package from a japanese postcrossing member, who I tagged for letter paper, memo sheets, washi, sticker flakes and Pokemon postcard and joined a RoundRobin group (for another Pokemon postcard^^). 
She used some cool Doraemon stamps ^^

A while ago I hosted a Pokemon ATC swap on swap-bot and received these three lovely Pokemon:
Plusle, Cyndaquil and Cubone

And I also received a very lovely package from my penpal in the U.K.
The envelopes have very fun colors and design and I really enjoyed reading her letter ^__^
You can see her blog here

Outgoing Mail~

While I was going through my swaps I found some plain brown envelopes
I recycled to make Air Mail tags

One of them I used on this postcard for a RoundRobin on Postcrossing ^__^

And here's another one of the snail mail envelopes I made out of the
Manga pamphlet^__^

I also send out some birthday mail a week ago^__^
She is a member of the Anime and Manga club on the postcrossing forum
I found it more and more fun to decorate postcards and envelopes ^^

I wonder.. how do YOU keep track of friends' birthdays^^?
I'm happy one of the forum's members created a thread in which everyone could post their birthdate :D

Outgoing Mail~

Last week while buying a birthday present for my brother I saw a manga preview 
(advertising) pamphlet and I used most of it for decorating my outgoing mail:

I was amazed by the adorable pictures that I didn't get read all the advertisement 
for new manga but.. oh well, I sure had fun doing the envelopes xD
I'll be uploading the other envelopes when I mail them out ^__^

Also I mailed out a swap to a Postcrossing member ^^

I recently haven't uploaded any photos of my outgoing mail so here come most of the mail I've sent in February and early March ^__^

This was a private swap with someone from the postcrossing forum ( I received the Pokemon movie postcard and Pokemon by Shinzi Katoh). The Krtek card is a RAS from me ^__^

I hosted a swap on swap-bot and these are the little guys I sent out ^__^
The Murakami card is an extra as I still had some on stock and my swap partner likes Murakami (the same as me ^o^//) 

I made a private swap (Ghibli ABC ATC swap) and sent this out :)

I sent these two swaps out for Pokmon Gijinka swap :D
It was a lot of fun turning the Pokemon human ^__^

Do you do ATCs? What is your favorite way of doing them?

surprise mail ♥

Hi there ^__^
Today I received a lovely letter from a friend currently living in Japan :)
It is a very encouraging letter and I'm really thankful to receive it <3
Right now it is difficult for me to motivate myself so this letter came just in time ^__^

To protect privacy I won't be showing the photo or
 name on the back of it (just in case someone reading this knows japanese^^)

I received some other awesome mail from a new penpal and some other swaps. I'll be showing them the next time. Just wanted to share this happy moment with you today ^__^

Received Pokemon Postcards and ATCs :D

This and last month I did some swaps on swap-bot and postcrossing ^__^

I traded some Inkognito cards with magenta from the postcrossing forum. 
In return I received these cool Pokemon postcards :D
Latios and Latias are my absolute favorite legendary Pokemon so I'm really happy to be able to swap for them ^__^ The other Pokemon card is made by Shinzi Katoh.  
He's a japanese artist and I really love his simple style art :)
Here's a bigger picture of the card:
Isn't the female Pikachu carrying his letter, just simply adorable^^?
Looks like a love letter, doesn't it ;)

And I'm hosting a series of wish Pokemon ATCs and these are the little cuties I received.
They are sooooooo cute! I love love love these ^__^
The stamp fits cutely to the Dedenne ATC, don't you think? 

Do you do any ATCs? What is your favorite topic and medium for ATCs?

Incoming Easter Mail :D

It's been a while since I last posted any updates because I was busy writing a 15-page paper for classes >__<  I still have another paper left but it's not as much as this one ^^'

So.. today I received two lovely Easter themed mail :D

I hosted another "Dress up Pikachu!" swap at swap-bot and these 
are the ones I received ^__^
The theme was St. Patricks & Eastern Holidays.
I'm not a Christian but I find St. Patricks Holiday very interesting
and Eastern Holidays has always been a part of my life 
(not the religious side of it, but I was looking for Eastern eggs in my childhood :D)

I sent a selfmade postcard to the EasternBunny and received a reply!
The reply included two postcards and a letter.
Also! Isn't the rabbit stamp a really cute one? :D
It's Felix the Rabbit who sends letters to his family while 
travelling around the world :D

I have received some more letters and will be uploading them soon^^

Happy Mail Day ^__^

I actually wanted to wait till the weekend to post again, but today I was very excited when I opened the mail box to find 5 postcards and a swap from swap-bot :D

These are the cards I received and swap I received today:
Isn't the Pokemon starter and the Dedenne card totally cute^__^?
They are from a private swap I sent the children's book illustration postcards to. ^_^
The New Year's card is from my postcard pal and the Doraemon card is 
from a RR on postcrossing and the one next to it is from the official site from a
member from Netherlands. ^__^

And this was inside the swap envelope:
The Hajimaron is a card protector sleeve in which the ATC was in :D
It's the first card in the series "Dress up Pikachu!" Cosplaying Pickachu which I host on swap-bot.^^
There was actually also an origami samurai hat but I didn't notice it when I took the photo ^^'

Yesterday I also received the swap to the Ghibli ATC swap :D

Art by Kagaya ♥

Today I received two great cards from a RoundRobin from the postcrossing forum. Check them out:

The colors on the postcard are really outrageously stunning in my opinion :D

I went through my received card and found out that I haven't posted these ones:
I received them through RR or tags on the forum :D
I'm really happy about the card of Dr. Watson from the SHERLOCK series^__^
Martin Freeman is definitely one of my favorite actors^__^

And today I sent out 2 postcards for swap and for my postcard pal:

There's still some swaps I'm going to send out this week so stay tuned :D

Sent and Received ♥

Hello my dear readers ^__^ The last two weeks I was quite a bit sick so I wasn't really in the mood to edit photos of the received cards. But now I am getting better ^__^

So I'm gonna show some of the cards I received in the past :)

This is a swap I received from Swap-Bot. It was a Robot ATC swap :)
She used a pretty cool address stamp (around the bird - that's why I had to edit that out ;)  ^__^

Both cards were part of a RR swap on the postcrossing forum (from different members)
Aren't they cute? ^__^

And these are some swaps I sent out :D

The robot ATC I created for the swap on swap-bot :)

And this is for the ABCs of Ghibli - Letter "K" ATC swap.
Because of postage and lack of time I won't be participating for the other letter ATCs
(except a private swap I arranged with someone).

These are some postcards I have sent last week. The lali card with cows is for the Mew card I received and the other card by Helme Heine is for the same person I'm doing a private swap with :)

I'll be posting more stuff soon as I sort through my received mail.^__^
