A gorgeous postcard from Aska as part of her mailart project check it out here, she needs lots more addresses to send her art out to so get involved!


I got the lovely cupcake card from Garci it had such a lovely letter inside and the receipe for the cupcakes is on the back of the card, i adored this card so much. She also included this beautiful flower postcard that i already have in mind for someone. The second photo is the back of the envelope she decorated.

This postcard from Faiza, i love self designed cards.

A thankyou card from my cousin in Scotland. It also came with my favourite chocolates from Thorntons.

Outgoing...

An outgoing to Jenn made from an old atlas.

To Belen.

And finally a thankyou to Aska.
I hate being behind on my letter writing but hopefully i will catch up soon. If i owe you a letter it will be out soon.
My weekend was really good, i did far too much relaxing and not enough work but i think i needed it. My friends daughter has grown up so much she is such a happy fun loving kid i absolutely adore her. Here is a pic of her eating her birthday cake...


Thankyou so much for the birthday present suggestions, i ended up getting her a book and some bubble bath. I also visited my friend, Elissa who had little baby Eve 5 weeks ago, she is the most stunning baby i have ever seen and is already smiling and making little noises. I love the new born baby smell i think it must release some sort of endorphin because i was happy all day after seeing her.
Also, today i am featured on An affair with fashion with my reflections on my favourite fashion from 2009, check it out if you like.
Hope you are all having a wonderful day!
Oh and just a reminder, you have a week left to get out your stationery package for the swap. I am so excited to see what everyone gets. I will hopefully set up a McLinky so everyone can see what each other got.

  5. *phew* it got to you! i really need to keep in mind that we're many miles away and that our letters will take a long time before reaching one another. i kept checking your blog and bianca's and worrying neither one got to either of you! but seeing mine up on yours lets me know bianca should be getting hers soon too. haha.

    and now... i wait for yours! :D
