snaily mail

mail snails

Quite a while back I did a swap on Swap-bot called "Snail Mail :]." I blogged about my own offerings at the time, but did end up responding to one of the swapped envelopes I got.

big snails on the back

The idea was to decorate the envelope with many snails, and I was really touched by the hand-drawn snails on this one.

She obviously put some time into her snaily drawings...

...and I found them delightful.

  5. Jake, your question is unanswerable on two different levels:
    1. This was received, not sent, so obviously I didn't buy anything.
    2. This is handmade. There's no such thing as an unopened pack of a hand-drawn original.
