4 Postcrossings and week-end mail

Hello. I hope everyone had a fabulous Valentine's Day and a great week-end.  My week-end was very enjoyable. I had some out of friends who were in town for a convention so I was lucky enough to be able to spend a few hours with them and we had a lot of fun. I think my new favorite drink is a wild berry mojito. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it if you like to drink alcoholic beverages.  Anyway, I have some mail to post. I had a few incomings over the week-end which I will share with you before I get to the outgoing mail.  Feast your eyes on this mail-luscious goodness.

 
This is from The Adventures of the Traveling Postcard swap and my swap partner was very kind in sending me all of these extras.  I hit the mother lode with this one.  She enclosed some really great postcards. The one in the upper right hand corner is really cute but the best one is a Barbie postcard. I may or may not showcase that one at a later time. It deserves it's own post.
 
 
This is a perfectly square postcard from a postcrosser in the Nehterlands.
The sender writes:
Hello JarieLyn, First I want to say what a lovely name. Second I really like Las Vegas. Been there a few times when I was living in L.A., but that was just on the strip and national parks. Greetings from the Nehterlands. 
This postcard really appeals to me because I love agricultural areas with farmland, etc.
 
 
Here are my Postcrossings going out on Monday.
 
 
This one is traveling to Minnesota.
I write:
Hi John, I often take my out of town guest to Lake Las Vegas because the environment is as if you stepped into a Mediterranean country. It doesn't look like it in this image, but it truly is like being in another place. Peace!!!   JarieLyn
 
This Postcrossing is going to Japan.
I write: 
Hello Satoko, I am JarieLyn from Las Vegas, Nevada. Lately, I've been wanting to learn how to knit but I'm not sure if I should try to teach myself or find a class somewhere. I envision myself making beautiful sweaters and dresses that I can wear during cool weather.  Like you, I collect washi tapes. I have a whole drawer full. This is the first time I've used any on a postcard though. I hope you enjoy. Have a happy life. <3 JarieLyn.
 
 
This postcrossing is headed to China.
I write:
Hi Elf, the image on this postcard depicts the Fremont Street Experience which is in downtown Las Vegas, also known as old Vegas.  It is different than the Las Vegas Strip and I prefer taking out of town guests here. It is more down to earth and there are lots of cool street artists here that the strip doesn't have. there is also a zip line at the Fremont Street Experience. Have a great life. <3 JarieLyn
 
 
This Postcrossing is going to the Netherlands.
I write:
Hello Joyce, the Las Vegas Strip is a very high energy place but there is more to Vegas than casinos and gambling. we have beautiful Red Rock Canyon where the wild burros roam; Mt. Charleston where you can snow ski; Cold Creek where you can see herds of gorgeous wild horses; Valley of fire; Lake Mead, and so much more. It's a great place for photographers, nature lovers and party goers. <3 JarieLyn
 
 
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.  I've got some grocery shopping to do. Ugh!!!!

I like your postcards from Las Vegas.

By the way, I'm also trying to learn how to knit :D
I bought a book and some cheap yarn and needles. Now I have practised a bit, I'm waiting for a kit to do my first real piece!

Gosh, I have underestimated Vegas, JarieLyn. You'll have to send me postcards of some of these to educate me!
Love
John
