Week 8-9; cant wait for uni!!!! (but i can at the same time)

hello!!! so this is really late! soo late its going to be week 10 soon! well originally i was late because my competition ran to a close and i had to choose some winners!!! and then things got busy, loud and stressful. I like the quiet life, i could live without the tv… and read books all day! but here with my parents i cant.. so my head gets full of useless things and i cant think or concentrate and it makes me feel stupid cos’ i cant do anything! let alone write or read letters and blogs and well any thing!! there has been next to no escape this summer… i cant wait for a whole day where my brain returns back to normal and i can think! Any who! if you have written to me ill be sending and writing mail after the 11th when i return to uni, if you have sent me something and it has not arrived to me yet don’t worry i have a forwarding address and i will get the letters and items in good time!

i had a birthday in the last two weeks… it was good! i got this amazing tea pot!

any one know where i can get matching cups?

ok well onto the mail part of my blog and then the exiting part where i announce the winners of my last competition!!!

this lovely little post card was sent by kristin from Minnesota; she writes that she received my card the other day and was unsure whether it was from wall type or send something, but she had seen my project before. she writes that she loves english stamps and mail stickers and that mail is her favourite thing!

this lovely little package of tea was sent by Amy, she writes that she is from arlington USA just outside washington, she hoped the tea found me well and that i enjoy it. recently she has had earthquakes.

this letter in the awesome envelope was sent by melissa from washington, in the letter she tells me about her job and where she lives, what jobs she had done in the past as well as some opinions on some things!

this other tea delight was sent by mauleen (sp) from canada; they write that they hope i like the tea :) and that they are their favourite.

this post card from toronto was sent by jona, the post card reads that toronto is canadas largest and most populated city, jona visited the uk for a week in june and loved it, and wishes me all the luck with my project and hopes i receive lots of wonderful things from all over the world.

this old looking post card was sent by kabouter from the south of the netherlands they write that the post card is a scene from 1884 in the netherlands and that they hope i like the card.

this post card was sent by john from the UK :P he writes that he shall write in the typical english fashion, the weather is over cast. he also writes that if the post card arrives to me in time then happy birthday. there are lots of funny drawing all over and comments including that the card was from chartwell when we visited i think a week before. there is also a cut out of darf vader thinking of what to have for dinner and a comment that the card reminds him of the funky chicken. a bit odd but luckily for him i like odd! <3

this cool little package came all the way from malaysia david, the card reads that he hopes i am in the pink of health, and that the somthing they have sent me is a key chain with a picture of a shadow puppet on and that shadow puppets are very famous in kelantan.

thank you sooo much for all the letters, cards, items and postcards! they have all been wonderfull and if you have given me your address you may get a little something back like a post card or a letter! but when i return to uni as i cant really do it when i am at home with the parents.

NOW FOR THE COMPETITION!!!

so it was sooo hard for me to choose a winner! the conditions for winning was that:

sent something with your address

the thing was:

x: creative

x: random

x: unique

i would like to thank all those who got involved and if you have not won this time in the next two weeks i shall be starting a new competition!!

runners up:

i liked this one that misha sent me because of the mail art making the envelope “something” more then just an envelope!! it got the creative tick!!!

david got a tick because of the way they packaged the item!!

melissa got the tick for random and unique by sending me the packaging of what she had for breakfast!!!

AND THE WIINER!!!!!!

Becky won the competition because of the way she not only decorated the envelope but used the cover of a baked bean can to write on (its also her favourite make of baked beans) i thought this was definitely random, unique and creative so ticking all the boxes becky can now look forward to her prize coming in the post:

thanks again to every one who has got involved with my project thus far! i hope you agree with my decision on runners up and winners! please also note that if you are a runner up i will be sending you some prizes as well :).

happy mail days and posting!

sabrina.
