Letters!

16 Jan

This week I have been writing some letters to my penpals, one lady whom I particularly owe a letter and miss dropping a papery line with.

2015/01/img_3696.jpg

I’ve also joined in with Jocelyn at The Reading Residence Bring Back Paper challenge.

Jocelyn’s January’s challenge is to send out a piece of Happy Mail. If you are already a Snail Mailer she has set the additional task of sending out one more piece of Happy Mail to some one you don’t regularly correspond with.

Earlier in the month I fulfilled this January challenge by joining in with ‘Pay it Forward’ where by you send a piece of happy mail to 5 different people randomly at anytime throughout 2015.

You may have seen this on my Instagram & Twitter account and around and about, many people take part in this.

I offered this to the regular people who I exchange with and also those who I do not exchange with.

So excitingly (as I enjoy sending happy mail as much as receiving it) I have 5 ladies to surprise at some point.

1: Lady in the Netherlands.
1: Lady in America. (I already exchange with)
2: Ladies in The UK.
1: Lady in Australia.

I’m so pleased I got a response and am really looking forward to sending these ladies a treat during the year.
I’m so eager, I need to put my thinking cap on and surprise these ladies.

Pop over and take part with Jocelyn if you are also a #PaperyPeep kind of person.

Next month she is Hosting a Stationary Swap.

18 Sep

I received a second travelling journal this month.

This is Sarah @mum2AandB12 travelling notebook; #M2ABtravellingnotebook.

20140922-003909.jpg

Sarah asked me to post some photos on Instagram of the entries so far so I took snip it photos to leave her intrigued and not ruin the surprise for her.

20140922-003926.jpg

20140922-003946.jpg

But as these are my own entries I’ve chosen to share them with you.
So here are my 4 pages.

20140922-005411.jpg

I added some crochet, decoupage …

20140922-003214.jpg

… A little About Me Bookmark.

20140922-003232.jpg

Some stamps & stickers to represent our pets …

20140922-003249.jpg

A list of things that make me smile and things I like.

20140922-003305.jpg

And I finished with Grandmas Diary Quote decorated with painted circles in 2 of my favourite colour combinations turquoise/teal and gold.

Now it’s time for that little notebook to travel on once more.
Hope you can continue to see its travels in Instagram.

#PURPLEHIKESTRAVELLINGJOURNAL

18 Sep

What should fall on my door mat the other week but PurpleHikes from Instagram & Twitters, Travelling Journal.

She kindly added a few extra treats.

20140921-235419.jpg

Let me show you how Purple Hikes has started her Journal.

20140921-235841.jpg

PurpleHikes has included lovely clear instructions and examples if your a bit stuck for inspiration.

One thing I enjoyed about this journal choice was the size page you had freedom with and the quality of paper allowing lots of multi crafting without ruining previous pages with ink or glue splodges.

So now let me show you my page entries, it’s very nerve racking being the first entry and trying to do her journal proud…

20140921-235918.jpg

My first page I based on a welcome theme and the start of the journals travels with a little to-from map.
There is some lavender from the garden to add a relaxing scent.

20140921-235930.jpg

Page 2 is the quote that’s is always in my heart now as it was found in all my beloved Grandmothers diaries after she past away earlier this year.

20140922-000042.jpg

The next page I choose to represent some of my hobbies and enjoyments.
So you have the tea cups, crocheted flowers, stamps representing #postcircle and the frilly ribbon was a piece of one of the ribbons attached to giant balloons at our wedding back in July and a few other bits and bobs.

20140922-000104.jpg

I saved the last page for a few notes on myself.

And now the #purplehikestravellingjournal has been past on I look forward to watching its development on Instagram so I do hope there are future pictures peeps.

20140922-000144.jpg

20140922-000201.jpg

But here are a few I have recorded.
