lettermonth, round 4!

it’s february, which means, it’s time to put my stationery stash to good use and send some postcards and letters! :)

so if you’d like to get a piece of handwritten mail from me, leave a comment below (and your address on my postable, if i don’t have it yet). i’m working through my list of “usuals”, but there’s always space for new friends. let me know!

month of letters, round 3!

february starts tomorrow, and i’ve decided this is the year i finish the month of letters challenge, for a change! :)

so if you’d like a letter or postcard from me, leave a comment below — and drop your address on my postable, if i don’t have it yet. i already have a list of my usual suspects, but i’m always up to sending mail to other nice people out there… it’ll be my pleasure! :)

a month of letters


in order to complete the letter-writing part of my 101 list, i’ve decided to join the month of letters challenge this coming february. i’m pretty sure i would have no problem acing it just with postcrossing cards… but i really want to try and write more letters!

i’m planning to send them mostly to friends, but i’m still short on recipients – so if you’d like to be included, just leave a comment below! i’d be happy to send you a letter :)

to mr cheng

a cool project that tests the limits of postal workers’ patience, one strange object at a time.

check the interview with the artist on wired magazine for some more insight on the project. a small preview:

Wired.com: You have previously published books of letters, for example one where you sent letters with odd ideas to authorities, like asking a Swedish municipality if it could host a North American Indian tribe. Why are you so fascinated by letters?
Ericson: Sending things is a fun way to communicate, and I love the seriousness in letters. I mean, you would never receive a lawsuit by e-mail. There is something about letters, especially nowadays when they are getting more and more rare, and we’re communicating in other ways instead.

small obsessions

stationery sets

lately, i’ve been obsessing over stationery. all kinds of small envelopes, writing tools, letter sets, stickers, postcards… i love them, i just can’t stop myself! i found a nice shop on fuzhou road called keyroad (very close to dunkin’ donuts) that is filled with korean goodness, and well, disaster ensued. some of the stuff in the picture is actually for a swap but the rest is just sitting here, waiting for an excuse to write a letter :)

speaking of recent korean discoveries, when browsing for video podcasts on itunes store, i found maangchi who makes cooking traditional korean food look fun! in small funny episodes, she will make you a master of kimchi or bibimbap. i can’t wait to try the egg side dishes, simple and yummy!
