Received Mail: A lovely package from Irene!

Again, I got a very cute little package from Irene, two weeks before her visit! It was full of lovely vintage goodies and a sweet little note. She also bought me a Versamarker, you can use it to write whatever you like and emboss it! Irene will be visiting me on February 27th and I am so excited to see her and go to the crafting store with her!

Received Mail: a postcard from Irene!

I was so excited seeing this lovely postcard in the mailbox, it was from my friend Irene! It says: “Lummelen is heel simpel, eigenlijk: doen waar je zin in hebt” which means “Mooching about is really simple, it just means doing what you feel like”. I contacted her on Facebook and now we finally set our Crafting Date on December 19th!

We have never met in real life, but we have been following eachother on social media for over 4 years and we both love to craft! Irene is really into Project Life and I am excited to learn more about it. I am going to show her what embossing is & what cool things you can do with it.

Ofcourse I will take pictures off the day and post them here! Have a great week!

Received: A Golden Package from Irene

It was such a nice surprise to find a lovely golden wrapped package from my friend Irene. I just received some bad news and this made my day so much brighter.

The package was filled with TWO necklace (one not pictured), a Pimp a Bird package with wooden birds and paint, a totebag Irene made herself (!) and a gorgeous vintage notebook. She also wrote a sweet postcard.

The totebag is hilarious, it says “Never trust a man who doesn’t like cats” and it’s unique! She made it using the silkscreening process.

I’ve sent Irene a package back, with a Flow Magazine and some other goodies to thank her. We will hopefully meet up soon for our crafting date!

Here are some pictures!

Received: Snail Mail Magazine from Susan

I was so surprised! My sweet pen pal sent me a home made snail mail magazine! I really love it & am really impressed by how much TLC she put into it. It’s a personal magazine about our letter writing relationships, about Susan’s hopes & dreams and it was full of great goodies (stickers!). How inspirational! I can suggest everyone sending a personal magazine to YOUR pen pal!

I have been preparing a great gift for Susan ever since I received her magazine (I am very ashamed it took me so long, but I really want to surprise her) & I hope to get it out in two weeks time. Check out the pictures!
