Horrible Cereal, but Cool Postcards! Sent to the United States

Some time ago, I was given the swell gift of a box of this cereal.  It was snail-mailed to me!  The swell part was not the cereal itself, which I ended up dumping after I tasted it, but the fact that it made for such fun postcards!

Yes, it’s another swap-bot chunk-of-cardboard swap, in which participants were to create postcards out of their recyclables.  This lovely round is headed for swappers in Saint Paul, Minnesota; Chandler, Arizona; and Atlantic Beach, Florida.

Stamps, stamps & tape for this round:

Snoopy Madness! Ordered from Japan

Whoa!  Look at all of this Peanuts coolness!

I ordered a mail-related Snoopy stamp set & Peanuts washi tape from an etsy seller in Japan.  She really makes commerce fun! When I opened the brown paper, I found a fun inner layer:

Unfortunately, I made a slit in that zippy bag–but I will still use it to send something to a friend at some point.  Inside of THAT layer was my order–plus a LOT of fun little extras!

See that huge array of stuff?  I only ordered two things: the little box of cooool rubber stamps, and the roll of washi tape next to it.  All of the tiny papers, little envelope, & stickers are extras the seller nicely threw in!

Whoa!  Love those stickers!

This is a lot more fun that shopping with Amazon.  MUCH better packaging, too–but don’t get me started on Amazon’s packaging issues.
