Yay For Happy Mail!
There’s nothing like getting something through the post that’s not a bill. When I was younger, I would be endlessly writing letters. But nearly everybody’s on Facebook now so it’s not something I do very much.
Not writing letters means I don’t receive them either! So it is just bills, and stuff hubby’s bought from Amazon.
So it was a huge treat to get some happy mail in the post the other day from my new internet friend Antonio.
Yay for internet friends too!
As I said in the email newsletter I sent out the other week, one of the things I never expected when I started Tea and a Sewing Machine was how many people I would meet via the internet, and how many friends I would make.
For a homeloving introvert who finds meeting new people (especially lots all at once) quite stressful, this been such an unexpected blessing. And the ones I’ve got to meet in real life, well, they’re even better.
So Antonio’s happy mail included some lovely paper craft things, a candle that he’d made in a teacup and a bath bomb that he’d made, in a pretty box which he had also made.
I love the little envelopes.
The labels are lovely, and I like the idea having them say whatever you want to them to say.
I’ve never tried making candles or bath bombs, but I think I might at some point!
Antonio has a Youtube channel, and these are some of my favourite videos.
