This cancels out on how I was feeling in my previous post.

That is all. I cannot find the words at this time.

Canada Post Woes

I sometimes question the universe (and perhaps myself included) when you have the best intentions for something good to happen but it ends up not happening.

A package I had sent overseas never arrived.  It makes me wonder that once upon a time, this was the only method to communicate, so I trust that it should be a reliable service, no?  :P  Unfortunately, this package was not trackable because we have the 3 options of , "well,  delivery by surface will take at least 2 months and it will cost $5, air will cost $20, and trackable by air with cost $80".  Ummm....sooo yeaaah, I pick option 2 please. 

It was important to me because it was a special package that had multiple surprises for the receiver and one extra surprise for someone who was visiting the receiver at that time.
Canada Post reimbursed me the money, but I don't care, because there are things in there that can't be duplicated, and the contents inside exceeds any monetary value.  This was the 2nd time that this has happened, except the 1st time I could go out and re-purchase the gifts, but with this time, what might be gone will be gone forever.

I am still expecting some things in the mail from overseas but let's see when that actually arrives as the mail was sent here during a Canada Post strike.

I sincerely apologize for the rant and I suppose I should focus on all the other mail that has reached their intended destinations vs. the few that didn't.

Perhaps somehow this is yet another test in faith and patience for yours truly.

Hej, Mr. Mustache!

I've been a fan of Studio Violet's work for quite some time now.
Studio Violet is composed of 2 brilliant artists - Camilla Engman and Elisabeth Dunker.  Here are some photos of the book, "Mr. Mustache".  Just like Mr. Mustache, I long to travel!

Tack så mycket Elisabeth, for sending me the lovely book and postcards!
