Sorry!

I haven't posted anything in ages :( But! In my absence this website has had nearly 10000 views! That is crazy, thank you so much to all of you who continue to view my website it really does mean a lot to me.

I thought I'd let you know whats been happening and the plans for posting over the next month so here goes.

I've recently been doing my A-levels and if you know what they are then you will know how much they literally take over your whole life. However yesterday I finished my last exam and now I have finished college totally for the summer, yay! Hopefully that means that now I will be able to keep this website much more up to date than I have recently...

I have had some spare time to keep updating my Instagram (@messagesfrombottles) so after I have finished this post I shall repost what I posted on there but with a sort of running commentary. Hopefully then that will keep you all up to speed with my recent purchases and letters!

However, I am about to travel to America for a whole month so at the moment I am not entirely sure how often I will be able to keep this up while I'm out there, but prepare yourself for Disney themed cuteness when I do finally get round to posting it!

Okay I think that's pretty much it for whats happened recently, to all of my fellow people in the northern hemisphere I hope you are having a lovely start to the summer! And to those in the Southern hemisphere, don't worry it will be summer again soon haha

Stationery Hoarding

Hey everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted on here in ages. For those of you who don't know I am moving away to university this Autumn and in order to do that I need to get the best grades which... is easier said than done... So basically at the moment I don't have much of a life, but! Never fear Snail Mail is still very much on my mind and I have been thinking about what to post now for a very long time and here it is!

The other day I was clearing out my stuff making a hopeless attempt at reducing the amount of things I have to leave my parents while I'm away at Uni and I found out I have a serious problem... I found boxes of unopened stationery I ordered from JanetStore months and months ago, folders of stationery I have made or printed off the internet when I first started and bundles of kawaii knick-knacks that I quite frankly have no idea where they came from. 

I have no idea what to do with all this stuff! In a way I want to sell some of it, I know that I will never use it all and I could really do with the extra money, however, I also feel like nooo I cant get rid of this stuff it's all so cute and maybe I will use it eventually.

So all in all this is a pretty pointless post but I thought you might like to see some pictures of my collection (and possibly what could be up for sale to you soon ;D)

Let me know if you would be interested in me selling any stationery in the comments below! Hopefully that will help me make my mind up a little bit ;D After all, if I miss it all, I'm sure I will buy tonnes more to replace it.

Have a lovely week!

Ooh and I want to thank you all for continuously visiting my website since I have been absent. It means a lot to me that you are all still enjoying it! 

As always if there is anything you want to see on here please leave me a message at messagesfrombottles@gmail.com your feedback is also always welcome even if you just want to let me know how much you hate my website haha If you have have any snail mail issues or questions please feel free to ask my there as well, I will always be 100% honest :)

Here are those pictures!

Free Printable Stationery!

A lot of people ask me where they can get cute stationery without having to buy it online and I have found the solution!

I've found 3 websites that do free printable letter writing paper that I think is super cute so here they are:




Mint Printables... Always Fresh off the Presses!

It's really great that places like this exist so please don't try and sell on any of their designs! Always remember to read their terms and conditions.
