In this Snail Mail Ideas interview I am interviewing Raquel from Sweden (aka @Marionbcn on Instagram!) She makes very creative snail mail with her big collection of washi tapes, stamps and her beautiful calligraphy handwriting! But who is behind these creative letters?
What a creative week! I have seen such an amazing creative snail mail! So many creative people in the world! It still amaze me sometimes! If you want to show me your snail mail use #madeforsnailmailideas and get also a change to be feautured!
I am always thinking about how to use new things to create new ideas for snailmailing. Recently I was walking in the supermarket and saw coffee filters! I thought they could be very useful for snailmail because they are very light and you can fill the pockets with letters,mailtag, goodies and more stuff! So I was very excited to start working on a filtermail, that is how i called it! I hope you like it as much as I do! And would love to see your variations of this new thing I found out, called filtermail!
During the weeks before christmas I loved to share only christmas mail and christmas packages, but i saw a lot of cute other Snail Mail too!

More and more people are sharing their snail mail with the hashtag #madeforsnailmailideas to get featured! Keep on doing this I love to see all your mail! [Read more…]
For the first time this year I started the hashtag #christmaswrappingweeks2015 on Instagram because I loved to see how everybody was wrapping their gifts and share that inspiration with my followers! Because I am always joining some gift project during christmas and sending my penpals also wrapped gifts I really needed some inspiration too! Now I want to look back and select the most creative of all the submissions!
Weeks before Christmas I have send out a lot of mail! So the days before christmas i was waiting to receive some Christmas mail myself! I was very excited to receive some Christmas mail because it’s my favorite time of the year and one of my favorite themes for snail mail! Just before Christmas I got a lot of happy christmas mail!
