Got a questions for you all! Is there any problem sending seeds, herbs or any kind of orgánic material to your countries? I've been told recently that every Mail with that kind of things to Australia would be destroyed to avoid any environmental risks about species from outside. I was planning on send you something that could be interpreted as a foreign seed, but I don't want your letters destroyed! What do you think? To Spain there is no problem, I have purchase american seeds before and the package wasn't even inspected for it.

I'm curious about this too.. but I can't imagine why it would be treated differently compared to a packet of tea in a first class letter.. seeds are typically small and dry right? It's not as if you're trying to mail a giant tropical plant!

Giant tropical plant XD. The only way is to test it, Alba. Where are the people on your list from? Couldd you send a random letter with just a seed and see what happenS?

Just got my first post card from the exchange! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Michael from List 6!!!! Your post card is so beautiful. I'm fairly new at calligraphy and I hope someday to be able to control the pointed pen enough to make consistent upstokes. I'm not even sure if I'm using the right verbiage.  ??? I just know that it's beautiful. Thank you again.  :)

Glad you liked it (and your verbiage is just fine). With patience and good practice, you will go wherever you want.

 Bio-security in New Zealand will definitely destroy it.

I'm not even half way. My printer hates me and I was counting on it. :-(
I already received the first though, from Michael. Thank you very much. A beautiful piece!!

Hi List 8 People,
your mail is out today.  Fingers crossed, hope it reaches undamaged and soon :)

I'm looking forward to it.  I love learning about different parts of the world.

Per your instructions, I made sure not to use calligraphy on your envelope (and sadly, given my beginner's skills, it's debatable whether what's inside qualifies as calligraphy, either).
Just got you letter yesterday Matthew.  Great work, looks lovely  :)
