So this took me a while to upload but here it is, an amazing RAK parcel I received from the amazing Raissa in Delaware, a few weeks back! I usually post snailmail related things in my other (mail) blog but thought this would be great here, since this is technically a writing material themed post. Haha.

How was your morning?
