The Snail Mail Collective: Being Thankful

November was actually the second time that I took part in the Snail Mail Collective with the The Nectar Collective and Lost in Travels Blog. Sadly, I never actually received my package from the October collective… but I had so much fun chatting to my partner and collecting things to send her that I decided to do it again anywhere. My partner was for November Judith, an American currently living in Japan, where she works teaching English. You  really and check out her blog, Like Some Cat from Japan, where she posts about life in Japan, teaching English and her travels in Asia, among other things. Judith is lovely so get on over there and say hi!

Yesterday, I got a little card to say I had something waiting for me at the post office, so I stopped by there after work today and found my Snail Mail Collective gift waiting for me. Hooray! November’s theme was “What are you (the sender) thankful for”, and this is what Judith sent me:

Snail Mail

That is a face mask, some Pcky (Japan’s most popular snack, writes Judith), a pretty, hand-decorated envelope, hot yuzu drink (a kind of citrus fruit), decorative masking tape and bath soak. Inside the envelope, there was a sweet letter explaining all my gifts (in Japan’s long, cold winters, Judith is thankful for anything that will heklp stay warm!) plus this postcard:
