Presents and Postcards

Today I bought my first two postcards for post crossing.I cheated a little bit because I ended up buying my two people the same postcard but it was so cute and suited both of their profiles. I cant wait till they get them I hope it doesnt take too long to get to them. One is going to Finand and one to the USA.



                               
I have a friends 22nd Birthday tonight and it is so hard to get her a present. She is one of my friends who has left the student world and has a really great fulltime job so can always buy what she wants. I ended up getting her a friendship inspiration book full of photos and quotes and that way it shows how much I appreciate and love her.
I also got my sister a book for our first pckage swap "The Happiest day of my life" by Gillie and Marc Schattner which is such a cute little inspirational book about living life to the full. She is in the middle of exams at the moment so I hope that it will bring a smile to her face.

I think books can make such wonderful present because people can treasure them forever and I love writingg little notes on the inside so they can look back and remember what the book meant to them at that time in their life.

  3. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
    could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this.
    Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
