Postcards from Wonderland #8

4 May

*Gasp* A post that isn’t a mail call! Please allow me to escort you through this looking glass of mine.

For the most part, all of the postcards from this particular batch came from Kira.





That last one? It’s the very first duplicate I received. I’m surprised it hasn’t happened sooner, though I certainly don’t mind!

This final postcard was given to me by Macie, a member of my Postcard Posse. It’s sweet that she returns the favor and sends me postcards when she gets her hands on Wonderland-friendly ones❤


Thanks to my dad, I recently received a lot of blank postcards via this beloved theme of mine. Since I don’t feel like they’re mine to keep until they’ve been written on, I’ve been sending them to pen pals for them to return to me. I’ve gotten two of them back already so it won’t be long until another trip through the looking glass is upon us!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

April 15th: This mail call is off to an awesome start:


The letters above were from Justine, Kari, and Ashley, and the postcards Allison and Ashley.

April 18th: I got some more postcards thanks to Ashley, Justine, and Krista.

April 20th: More cards came– this time they were Artist Trading ones and I got ’em via Pablo.

April 21st: Othella added to my postcard collection, and Jody and Kayla gave me letters to respond to… once my Aunt Ruth and Uncle Randy’s visit was over.😉

April 22nd: I have officially restocked my global stamps, and I grabbed some Shirley Temple ones, too.

April 25th: My mother-in-law hooked me up with a gift subscription to Family Fun.

April 26th: Thanks to Gabe and Pablo, I got a letter from Whitney.

April 28th: Another two letters came, this time from Jody and Sarah. They actually both enclosed some goodies so I got magnets and a keychain, too!

April 29th: More glorious mail came yesterday and from both mailboxes. There were postcards from Kari and Macie, postcards to use from my dad, the last of the little cards per April’s theme, and this puzzle letter from Krista:


As per usual, I’m looking forward to seeing what the mailboxes will have for me next. Blogging may no longer be a favorite hobby of mine, but pen palling will always be.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

April 11th: The two letters I got today were so long they were typed, hehe. Thank you, Kära and Allison!

April 14th: I finished the letters from Monday just in time to get letters from Jody, Sarah, and Whitney, and little cards from Melissa!

Although there were several days where I didn’t get anything, the days where I did made up for them. As always, looking forward to what the mailboxes will have for me next!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

March 15th: Pablo hooked me up with another batch of little cards.

March 16th: No mail meant I worked on my own little cards.

March 17th: I got a random package from my dad after Logan’s dad and I got some good news at parent/ teacher conferences, hehe.

March 18th: With no letters to respond to after several days, I started making things like this with the help of my group:


March 19th: Still nothing to respond to, but these ATCs from Tara were still awesome to get!


March 21st: More ATCs came, this time from Jenn per our group.

March 23rd: Thank goodness Jody’s home from her vacation so I’ll hear from her regularly again.

Looking forward to seeing what the rest of this week has in store for me, and all of April, too.

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

February 29th: I got three birthday cards, two packages of address labels, and one potato.


March 1st: On my birthday, Pablo gave me the gift of Jen E.’s letter.

March 2nd: Though all I got from either mailbox was a lil’ thank you note, I remembered the present from Ashley that was waiting for me.

March 3rd: No letters (or presents) for me today, but Logan received more Qixels.

March 4th: I love this card from Jenn and the fact that she sent it late on purpose.


March 5th: I got my first letter from Jody as a 29-year-old😉

March 7th: Not only did I get my batch of Celebrity Crush cards, the last of the Puppy Love ones came per my February theme. But wait, there’s more! I got letters from Justine and Kristy, a birthday card from Kayla, and the latest stationery via La Papierre’s subscription service.

March 8th: I’m sending Othella 31 postcards via another March and so a new roll of postcard stamps was money well spent! Also in the mail but from Pablo: a letter from Whitney.

March 9th: If getting a postcard from Emily makes my day, you can imagine how excited I was to get a belated birthday present from her.

March 10th: With Once Upon a Time back, I was happy to have Ashley’s letter to respond to.

March 11th: In addition to getting a letter from Christal, I also got the first of the little cards per my 80s theme.

March 12th: Another Saturday so another letter from Jody.

I’m pleased to report that my birthday was a happy one, and that all of the mail I received (minus bills and junk, naturally) has made me happy, too! Dasvidania!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~

Presents from Wonderland

14 Mar

If you’ve seen much of my blog, you’ve probably seen what a big fan of Alice in Wonderland I am. This has likely been the most evident in my series “Postcards from Wonderland.” I don’t have any postcards to share with you right now, but thanks to my birthday I have some other Wonderland-friendly things I can!

First up is this glorious loot from Ashley! She made sure I had it long before my birthday, but it was actually on the 2nd that I remembered it was waiting for me. A very merry unbirthday to me, eh?


I had another merry unbirthday when Emily surprised me with these! Sure, the socks aren’t pertaining to Wonderland, but GNOMES!


As for these goodies, I actually ordered the POP! doll for myself and found the lil’ guys beside it the last time I was out with Gabe. I think I’m going to try to replace Stitch with the Cheshire Cat, and the tiny Donald with the White Rabbit, hehe.


I am so excited about the things that I found and the ones that found me. The presents are wonderful and my friends are wonderful-er❤

Sincerely, Kate

February 16th: I got a fun postcard from Frida, and it’s been fun getting Puppy Love ATCs, too.

February 17th: I got a Valentine from the lovely Jenn.

February 19th: I was so grateful for Ashley’s letter after so many days without something to respond to.

February 20th: I got another letter; this time it was from Jody.

February 22nd: I was quite the happy camper to see THREE letters in my mailbox. Thank you, Justine, Erika, and S’Moore!

February 23rd: An unexpected card came from a LEPeep. The weirdest part? It was a Christmas card.

February 25th: From Manolo there was stuff from Kayla as well as my stamps, and from Pablo there were ATCs, scraps to make my own, a birthday card, and a letter from Whitney.

Februay 27th: I got my last letter from Jody until I’m 29😉

Tomorrow is my birthday so I likely won’t be posting anything then, but hopefully in the days to follow I can make up for all the lost time here. Dasvidania!

Sincerely, Kate ~!~
