Early Christmas mail

Hello everybody!! Hope this month has treated you all kindly and you are all ready for Halloween (if you celebrate it)~

Today is a very special post because Alasse sent me a big Christmas package and I want to share a bit of it with you. We both agreed that sending things earlier to avoid the Christmas rush was the way to go so that’s why I’m posting this so soon. Amazing as it sounds, this package arrived super fast!! I wasn’t expecting it for at least 3 more weeks, you know how things work here, but it seems like the package just teleported from Alasse’s house to me, wouldn’t be nice if it was always like this?

I got the prettiest Christmas card and the first one I’ve gotten this year. Do you guys send and receive Christmas cards every year? I remember when I was little we would receive so many that my mom made a huge Christmas tree shaped poster made of ribbons where we would hang all the cards, but nowadays no one seems to send any! It brought back so many memories~! I’ve been wanting to send postcards with my doll photos every single year and never do, Hope this year I can take some early holiday photos and send them some of your way~

I also got a letter, postcards and a cute box with postal themed design where I plan to store all the cards I receive. Maybe some day I will fill it up! that would be neat.

I’m not going to show all I got because there were many things and some I’m keeping for myself and others I plan to use in doll photoshoots, but I will show you some great things!

First time Alasse sent me a package I got this cute girl in it, can’t remember the anime, but she’s very pretty, isn’t she? And now She sent me another figure (again, no clue about the character, sorry!) so now she doesn’t have to be alone in my desk. He looks ready to fight (and annoyed to be in an unknown place for sure!).

And the highlight of it all, since Alasse knows how much I love pink, I got this cute Christmas gift (maybe I should have waited until Christmas to open the box, but who has the patience for that, am I right?).

I must say it was really fun to change her face and hands and do different things with it, it was almost like a tiny BJD! I can see the appeal in collecting and photographing these figures and I love how this photo turned out. Figures surely have improved since I was a teenager, they are so much more detailed now and the coloring is so nice compared to the flat painting they used to have back in the day. I’m very impressed.

I probably won’t be sending nor buying any big packages for the rest of the year, but I do hope I can send some letters at least and save the rest for next year. I hoped to send more packages all over this year, but it’s harder than I thought!

I want to thank Alasse for her kindness and all the conversation we have had through email, it’s been super fun!!! And thanks for all the care and love you put in each package, it’s very much appreciated!

I wish you all a Happy Halloween!

    I’m glad to see the parcel arrived safe and fast! I am still quite shocked at how fast! Our postal systems must be finally doing something right!

    I have no idea which anime those petite nendoroids are from either. Their character designs just look pretty, hehe. I’m glad you like the pink girl. I am always happy to be an enabler 🙂 They have cu-poche figures now that can actually wear real clothing (that you can also buy for them). They are really cool. I have at least one of those but they have released three girls I think from memory in that line. I want to get another one but I just spent the little I had saved on the new Barbie girls so I have to wait until the fund replenishes again to buy anything.

    I love sending out Christmas cards. You are right though, people don’t send out Christmas cards much anymore. I think most of it these days is more of those Electronic cards you send through email.

    Oh man, I hear you on packages. It’s getting harder to send out big packages these days. It’s almost like the postal service don’t want people to send things to each other via physical mail anymore!

    I’ve really enjoyed our conversations too! We have so much in common. I really enjoy making the packages pretty for my friends. I already have a few ideas to send in your next one. I’m still bummed about that one I forgot to send this time around. I’d been working on it for a while but definitely next parcel.

      Yes! I wish postal service was this good always!

      I don’t mind not knowing the anime they are from, I have a friend I can ask in any case, He told me once from what anime was the girl, but I forgot already haha.
      I’ve seen clothes for figures on taobao, but I thought they worked for any haha, now I understand why they are there 😀

      I totally agree on sending packages, it does seem they don’t want us to! and I have so many things I want to send around!

      I want to give sending cards a try, I wonder how long would they take? Electronic cards are just not the same at all. I still buy Christmas cards from charity foundations almost every year and attach them to the gifts I put under the tree, but it’s not the same as receiving a card in the mail.

      Aw no worries, I still had stuff pending to send to you too, but I don’t have it yet x.x… Now we have something ready for the next one 😀

    Yay! Alasse is so generous right? I just received a package from her as well, the postal service seems to love us! 😀
    The girl in pink is so adorable, I can’t remember the name of the anime but I remember it was a magical girl anime, right? :O

    You’re right, it’s better to avoid X-mas rush so I will also be sending Late Halloween/Early X-mas packages out soon!

      Ohhh postal service is being nice all over!!! She’s just amazing 😀
      The pink girl is from Madoka Magica or something like that, can’t say I’m familiar with the anime, but the girl is super cute! I was into magical girls back in the day when I used to watch anime.

    Oh wow! What a lovely surprise in the mail, congratulations! Love the girl in pink, such a cutie!
    I still send out a lot of Christmas cards to relatives and friends. Often I make the cards too. Some even get gifts, always fun to give and receive.
    I think it is time to start to look for materials and gifts, time really goes fast.
    Happy Halloween!

      Oh so nice that you stil lsend and make the cards yourself, how neat! I love giving, I wish I could do it more often but my wallet suffers so much, especially because shipping is so expensive! Hope sending cards won’t be that bad.
      I’m already trying to find some props for holiday photos, hope I get to do something fun!
      Thanks!

    Congratulations on receiving your Christmas parcel Alejandra, you have some nice goodies there. 🙂
    I too have noticed the decline in Christmas cards over the years, and I think the rise in postage may have something to do with that, especially with the older generation at least.
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
    Hugs,

      Thank you! I agree with that, is harder each day to send out anything so people stop bothering. Plus you can always send out an email, though I find it a poor shadow of what getting a letter is.
      My weekend has been nice, been playing some videogames and did a simple halloween costume for Ailene, but I’m not sure if this will work out hahaha. Hope your weekend has been great!

    Congrats on the figures, Alasse is a very nice person! And welcome to the world of tiny figures, I have to warn you though that like bjds, they don’t like to be alone for long… 😉

      Thanks, She is indeed~!! Hahaha I hope I can stay away from buying figures, it helps that I have no idea about the characters, but who knows!!! things tend to multiply without you even knowing haha!

    I completely missed this post, I’m so sorry! The bloglovin sub is apparently not working anymore T_T
    Anyways, congrats on the package and early merry Christmas! It was so sweet of Alasse to send you so many goodies, honestly! I love the figures although I have no clue who they are!
