In My Mailbox (2)

In my mailbox today, I received the loveliest present! And no, it is not a book. Lol. But its close!

Last week, my close friend Chelsey messaged me asking me for a bookmark, since she had misplaced the one I had made for her in the summer. She told me she would make one for me too in exchange, and today I received my bookmark, with a lovely handwritten letter from her. 🙂

I really miss the days when people used to send letters to each other (not that I was alive to be able to miss it lol), but it seems awfully romantic and old-timey so I was thrilled to receive an actual letter in the mail, and not just letters from the bank..

The bookmark is all gorgeous, with thick, floral-printed paper, and with the word Spirit and my initials on it.

Here’s what the front looks like:

The back has a similar old-timey, parchment type pattern on the paper, with a quote from one of my favourite books, The Hunger Games.

The quote reads: “I am not pretty. I am not beautiful. I am as radiant as the sun.” Aww, I love this quote!

I can’t wait to use it, thanks so much, Chelse! 🙂

In other book news, I did get the book Before I Fall from the library this week, which I managed to read all in one day. Look out for the review to that, which should be up tomorrow hopefully.

Thanks for reading.

‘Till next time,

    Awwww *blush* this is too sweet! I’m glad you liked my amateur attempt at a bookmark lol. I had made a few before but my use of tape always seems to give them a 5-year-old-made-this look. Hope it finds its way into some wonderful books =)!
