I have seen several posts about the snail mail collective over the past few months and I thought that it would be really fun to take part in it this month.
The snail mail collective is where you are paired with another blogger in another country! You have time to get to know them and then get to send them a little gift ($5 or so) as well as a little note….snail mail style!
For my first time, I was paired with Caley over at Ellie Love. You guys, she is from South Africa! How cool is that! It’s obviously totally different than Arizona, which is really cool. Caley is super pretty and has the cutest little family. I was so happy to be paired with her.
Due to an email glitch we weren’t really able to spend a lot of time getting to know each other which really bums me out, but I hope we will stay friends so that can happen in the future. I am sure we will :)
This month’s theme was “Under the Sea” which, let me tell you, is difficult when you live in Arizona. There is no “sea” to be found here….or really many bodies of water at all! I decided to send her a few things that represented Arizona and a few things that were fishy and nautical themed. If you want to see what I sent her, you can check out her blog!
When her package arrived I was so excited! I’m not sure I’ve ever received ANY mail from another country, so this was great. Even the stamps were cool.
