Weekly Post Round-Up #5


Sorry this is coming a little late, I wanted to get it uploaded yesterday but I have decided to do something a little bit different this week and I didn’t have time to get it finished until just now!

I have recorded my very first vlog! It was pretty scary but I wanted to try something new so I’d love to hear your thoughts on it! Fell free to give me some feedback or tips in the comments and if you like the video you can hop over to Youtube and subscribe to shiny new channel! I’m hoping to do about two videos a week so let me know if you’re for it or against it!

Here are the photos of the items that you might not have been able to see in the video very clearly: Continue reading

Weekly Post Round-Up #3

This week was a crazy one for post, considering I wasn’t expecting anything! It started off with the arrival of my second surprise packet:



The surprise packet had a lovely combination of goodies in it! There were some lovely letter sheets that fold into envelopes, a Cath Kidston style letter sheet and envelope, an assortment of buttons, a fat quarter and some penguin food bags! I love the fat quarter and the buttons on the card go really well with it so I am busy looking for a project for them. The penguin food bags will come in very handy for my Christmas baking that I am planning to do for presents and the stationery will be put to use pretty swiftly!

I had another graduation present arrive on the same day too, this was from another auntie and uncle, and it is this lovely’class of 2013′ Β keyring which opens so there is space to add photographs from the day: Continue reading

Plenty of Post!

Since signing up to Swap-bot and Postcrossing, my postman has really had to work hard! Here is some of my most recent post:

A postcard from Postcrossing (confusingly, it is from a sender in Germany but it is of Rome! Talk about a well travelled postcard!)


I also received my first ever handmade postcard from the USA in the QUICK Cute Animal Postcard swap #34. Sadly his nose got grazed in transit but I still love the card to pieces:


My postcard collection also had a massive boost when I received my package for the Postcard Scavenger Hunt #22. The point was to choose 6 postcards from the list of 12 to sent to a partner, and if you could find the challenge on (a whale) you sent seven. I was paired with the organiser though, who sent me one card for every category (including the challenge!) as well as an extra one, meaning that I got a generous 14 postcard in total! Here they are with the category they fulfil: Continue reading
