Last Outgoing Mails of 2015 + Mail sent on January 8th.

YAY! First outgoing mails of the year and I am, for once, quite motivated to keep on writing, although the motivation usually keeps me up until 2-4am and I wake up between 9 and 11am although I have an alarm ringing at 8am each morning....

Not as much incoming mail and the first letter of 2016 arrived just yesterday (I'm still a bit behind with mail but catching up fast) :) Lisa's letter reached her on January 2nd (probably the first letter of 2016 for her) and Alex's letter arrived on January 5th although it was sent at the same time as Lisa's and traveled a shorter distance! :S

Letters
Missing letter I sent to Malaysia in 2015 and today's 2 outgoing letters to Germany and Taiwan :(

to Lucy, Argentina
to Lisa, Germany
Sent her a folded card I bought during my Interrail trip to UK in August 2010 and added some stuff on the side I didn't write on :)
to Alex, Germany
My second notebook letter for her (Eiffel Tower notebook is the letter, there's the tea envelope, Tampere map from one of my trips (the postcard-like looking thingy) and Frozen envelope includes Mail Tag), this time the notebook was big enough to fit my letter to her on the pages - barely :D

First page - decorated all the pages differently

And of course I had to use some pages for Frozen and wintery stuff :D
First letter to Jacqueline, Austria
another pal writing short letters so why not.. :)

to Lizz, Canada
Starting to write with her again after a couple of years :)

to Kat, Germany
Hope she likes the paper and the teas :) The Telephone-envelope has those fake polaroids inside :)

I absolutely love the Indonesian temple/house stamp and the otter from Estonia!

There was no theme but in the end it looks like birds/animals was the main theme of the chain! :')
