First day of school

Today was my first day of school for Fall semester. I had Biology and English class. They were harmless enough but it sounds like I will be getting lots of homework in both classes. How are you guys and when do you go back to school (if you go to school)? 

I received a lot of mail today! 6 letters and a package!

Happy writing

Lots of mail art

Hi guys, how's your week been? I've been crazy busy trying to get things prepared for school. But I had some free time this morning so I created the following mail art:

Lastly, I wanted to share this postcard with you guys :) I think it's really stunning.

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend and happy writing!

New Mail

I received 5 letters today, one of which I don't even know how to respond to. Rather than a letter, it's more like a profile. I guess I will mull it over. But I did receive a nice postcard from Bre :)

I bought my college books yesterday. They cost 600 dollars including the ones I had to buy today. The classes I am taking are:
Cultural Anthropology
English 102

School starts on Monday, which is the 27th. I am so excited to have something to do!

I'll be writing some letters today. I hope you all have a nice tuesday~

Outgoing Mail for Monday

Since tomorrow is Sunday the mail will not run. So Monday I have a few letters to send out and I have to get a package out to Julie :) Don't mind the scribbling... Asher got a pen and decided they needed decorating haha! And also he decided to dye his hair! That is another story for another time.


Here is a handmade envelope I made for my swap with Julie :)

Lots of mail today

Today I attended student orientation at my new college, College of Southern Idaho. It was interesting and I got most of the boring stuff out of the way. School starts a week from Monday! I am very excited because I will be studying French! I have always wanted to travel to Canada! And it helps with my degree as well because in addition to Spanish, I have to take another language and they only offer Japanese, Portuguese or French. I will also be taking Tennis, Biology and Sociology. 

I received a lot of mail today! First I received my Korean stickers I ordered from eBay. Its a character called Momoi. She is really popular in Korea! Next I received a letter from my new penpals Katie and Samantha. I did a swap with someone and she sent me a shot glass from St. Louis, Missouri. I have been there once and I saw the arch. It was amazing! If you haven't seen it, you should! I also received two postcards, but one of those I am not sure who it was from! One postcard from West Virginia, and the other from Indianapolis, Indiana. This is the most mail I have received in a while! But it sure was exciting. And yesterday, I received my order from I ordered more Poe envelopes. They're my absolute favorite!

I have an addiction to stationery. I spent over $50 on stationery yesterday. But it is so worth it. I love writing on cute stationery because I am sure it puts a smile on my pals face when they read them on cute paper. 

Happy Writing!

And here is a photo of myself.

The Post office can be a pain...

I had set up for my mail to be forwarded to my new address and they sent my old mail to my previous address. So my boyfriend (the great guy he is) he went to the post office and sent the 7 letters I have received on Saturday and Monday. 
I don't have much for you guys right now since I don't have any letters to respond to but here is a picture of my cute little boy :)

His name is Asher, He is almost 2 years old.

Package came today

I received a package today, and just in time because I am moving today! It was my order from :) And it also included a bunch of random things like the swap I am doing with Julie, some stickers, a magnet and a little note from Julie. I am so excited to use them! 

And then I went to Barnes and Noble with the boyfriend, and I picked up this Hello Kitty Journal!

New cosmetic bag, Hello Kitty style

I saw this at Wal-Mart. The purpose of going there was for a printer cable. I saw this and had to have it. It is actually a pencil case but I am going to use it as a cosmetic bag.

I got my printer set up and I printed a few stationery sets. I love it <3
Moving day is tomorrow!
Happy writing!

Outgoing mail

I have outgoing mail to my friend in Japan. Does anyone else need a letter? :)

Letter from Japan

I received a letter from my friend Naoko who lives in Fukushima, Japan. Her stationery was so cute, I had to share!

I also picked up some acryllic paint and glitter spray which I am going to use for mail art :)

And last but not least, I purchased a new camera, so no more blurry cell phone pics hahahaha! 

Happy writing! 

I could be getting better at this...

I am so in love with my cardstock! I have been making envelopes and these took about 30 seconds for each envelope, they were really easy to make!

And I saw these stamps at the post office, I had to have them!

Tomorrow I am going on an adventure to find some cool rubber stamps for more mail art and I want some paints also. I am moving this weekend so things are a little hectic! I am sending a letter for Katie tomorrow <3
Happy writing ~

Even more mail art

More mail art!

Doctor appointment and mail art

So long story short, the doctor had found some abnormal cells on my cervix and I had to undergo cryo therapy, but they had to do it again. Not what I wanted to do with my day but at least it's done and I hope it worked this time. Now I feel like crap but I am hoping for a good result.
I am hoping for some kind of mail today and I have sent off quite a few letters in the past couple days!
Made this for my new penpal in Austria <3 The Hello Kitty stickers are there because the paper kept coming off and wouldnt stick. Hello Kitty is vintage too, right? <3
Happy writing.

New Cardstock

I picked up some cardstock from Wal-Mart and I was excited they had a vintage pack :) I picked it up and took it home, here are some of the designs.

I made this mail art and I love the result. Plain and simple :)

Construction paper

I found myself in a crafty mood when I saw this construction paper at Walgreen's. I made a few mail art, they're just simple ones. But I like them all the same. Obviously the vintage one is not from construction paper. 

Oh and here is a photo of my puppy! Her name is Coco and she is a Pomeranian-Pug mix. She is just barely a year old. 

And this is Kali. She is a Siberian Husky. She is two years old! Don't worry, she loves the kitty. His name is Gideon and he is 1 1/2 years old. 

Happy writing!
