I got mail from my amazing Texan Villainette sister. It’s always so exciting to receive news from far away places. I’d love to have other penpals. So I could send my DIY cards which I adore creating. If you are interested, you can leave a comment or send a mail : veragamba1974@gmail.com

J’ai reçu du courrier de ma Villainette soeur du Texas. C’est toujours super excitant de recevoir du courrier de l’autre bout du monde. J’aimerais trouver d’autres correspondants. Ce serait l’occasion d’envoyer mes cartes que j’adore créer. Si tu es intéressé, tu peux laisser un commentaire ou m’envoyer un mail : veragamba1974@gmail.com

Ich habe Post von meiner Villainetteschwester aus Texas bekommen. Es ist immer total spannend Briefe aus der weiten Welt zu bekommen. Ich hätte gerne mehr Brieffreunde. Das wäre eine Gelegenheit um meine selbstgemachten Karten zu verschicken. Hast Du Lust auf Brieffreundschaft? Du kannst einen Kommentar lassen oder mir eine Mail schreiben : veragamba1974@gmail.com

Receiving cards and gifts

I’m so blessed to have my penpal friends from all over the globe.

My dear Villainette sister sent me this beautiful card from New Mexico.

And I got these lovely Christmas presents from my UK based friend Rachel.

Looking for penpal

I have already posted an article about penpal.

I love writing letters and receiving letters from all over the world. It’s kind of exciting to open your letterbox and find something. It’s more personal than mail or leaving a comment on social media. If you are interested you can either leave your full name and address in the comments. Advantage : other readers than me can write you. Vera Gamba 11 rue de Dreux 78711 Mantes La Ville France Or you can mail me here : veragamba1974@gmail.com I’m also interested in mail exchanges.

Just another glimpse of my creative writing paper. So sweet to decorate yourself your paper and envelope. I’m very inspired by creations on Pinterest.


I have already posted about this amazing experience which is the exchange of letters and postcards with my Villainettes sisters from all over the world. Some call it snail mail. I am always so excited to find a new letter in the mail box coming home from work. I usually don’t open the envelope immediately, I put it on my desk and each time I pass in front of the letter I feel the excitement building again. And then comes finally the moment to tear open carefully the envelope and read the words chosen with love from a woman abroad. We have never met fir real but our bond has become so strong in some months…. It’s this feeling like coming home. Knowing there are people out there loving you, caring for you… Always an ear to listen …. Never alone again.
