Downloads- Objects and Accessories- Please Mr.Postman

Who remembers having a penpal when you were a kid? Remember sitting down with a pen and paper, writing the letter out, hoping it was legible, then begging your parents for a stamp? Then there was the interminable wait before the joy and excitement of getting a reply a few days later. It.Was.Awesome. That wait was one of the most sweetly excruciating pains ever, ranking right up there with waiting for Santa on Christmas Morning for me. Kids these days and their emails and ipods will never know. So sad.

Of course, Sims have mail. They get bills and love letters. They can even write a love letter. But I wanted a little something more. So I created this little set of letters and envelopes for your sims and I'm releasing these as a Happy Early Birthday to Me gift since I want to release the end of generation 2 on that day.





These are MY MESHES! That's right I actually meshed something. A squished box. lol. Except for the folded letter which made me want to pull my hair out because I'm a NOOB.

Except for the first preset, they all come with 3 channels. The front, the back, and the ink. They also have 4 presets for your inspiration.
The stamps on the envelopes are STENCILS, so they are not recolorable. Sorry. Also, the pretty viney flowers on the pink preset are a stencil so it is also not recolorable. Finally, the Kiss on the back of the one envelope is a stencil and not recolorable. Sorry.

I also needed the unfolded letter as an accessory, as well as the envelope, so they are available as accessories for pose makers. There is a version for kids, and a version for teen-elder for pose makers out there. Maybe I'll have some poses ready for them later on. =D

Standard TOU applies- Don't upload anywhere else. Don't claim as your own. Don't change the presets and claim as your own or reupload. If you want others to know about them, link back please.

  3. These are really nice! I have memories of writing to my ex-boyfriend while he was in bootcamp; while he was a douche, getting/sending letters was nice. ^^;;

    Anyhoo, fantastic work! I might have to use these soon.

    3. lol. Oh, they quit advertising for penpal sign ups when I was in middle school. International penpals were even offered on the list for those wanting to practice languages. For a little while, I had a penpal in India. Because he was learning English, not that I speak Hindi. lol

  6. I've written soooo many letters in my life it's ridiculous. Sadly I don't do it anymore, but my best friend and I used to write to each other every time we were away for more than 4 days. I have a whole box - not like a shoe box but a moving box - full of her letters, from high school to recent years. And another full of letters from other people, including my first big love who was a sailor and was away at sea for 3 months at a time. Those letters still make me a little bleary eyed. They were written on napkins and all sorts of papers he had lying around.

    Anyhow! These props are great, and I think it's really sweet how you and Gemma are working together with poses.

    1. Letters are So wonderful! And what a wonderful way to remember the past. Kids have no idea what they're missing out on. I've not kept that many, but I do have a handful from high school on in my cedar chest to read and remember.

      Thank you! =D
