Items In My Mailbox: 2 Items!

Item #1: Postcard from My Postcrossing Friend Patricia!

Again, I envy Patricia and her box of Jane Austen-themed postcards. She answered my question about whether or not she was a fan of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries fan, and her written response was quite enthusiastic as she told me "Oh yes, love, love, love The Lizzie Bennet Diaries!", which made me smile :) She's also got a whole whack of stamps on her card - guessing she's using up her old ones since the US postage rates went up recently. I really like the Harry Potter-themed stamps she has, but the other ones she has used look really cool too. She also asked amid the writing on her postcard if I could send her a picture of my Jane Austen-inspired prom dress, and I most certainly plan on doing that! In fact I've got a good lineup of photo-themed packages that I plan on sending out in the mail soon. I might even dedicate a post to sending photos in the mail, so stay tuned for that feature!

Item #2: Letter & Card from My Pen Pal Diana!

Another letter, yay! Letters are always the best thing to receive in the mail, by far - even better than packages that I've ordered online! It might be hard for the non-snail mail aficionado to get how a Powerpuff/Cornetto Trilogy t-shirt can lose against some writing on a page, but there is of course one main thing that a letter has that a cool t-shirt does not possess; feeling. When it comes to Diana's letters specifically, that feeling is usually excitement. I can always just sense the excitement from Diana's writing leaping off the page with every single letter she sends me. I'm not sure if it's because of the multiple exclamation points, which I love, or if its just her excitement upon receiving a letter from me reflecting back as she writes me a response, but there's always a palpable excitement tinged with everything Diana sends me, no matter what :)
I plan on writing her back soon, and I also have something special I want to send her along with my next letter. I haven't been able to respond yet because, silly me, I accidentally left her letter at my grandmother's house XP I brought it with me on Easter because I thought I'd have some time to start writing her a response, but I got too involved in the book I was reading. Luckily my grandmother found it and didn't throw it in the recycling by accident XD So I'll be picking it up again tomorrow so I can start writing her back.

That's all for now! I'll keep you guys posted!
