freebie friday XXIII

I NO LONGER POST ON THIS BLOG, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT MY NEW ONE!

Hi guys! I hope you all had a great Valentine's day/Galentine's day/Thursday :) and that you took the chance to eat a lot of chocolate!
I have a very random, yet somehow fitting, freebie for you today:

I found this illustration in a forgotten folder in my external hard disc, and since I think it's quite cute (I like teeth.. is that weird?) I decided to make a letter set with it. I reckon it's not my best work, but I've got a lot on my plate right now and 24h a day aren't enough.
Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy it ☺
Have a nice weekend!

3 things

Hey guys, how did your week start? I've been so busy putting the swap together that I can't remember doing anything else D: Also, as it wasn't enough, I caught a flu and I'm forced to stay home for a while.
Anyway, here's three thing I've been doing lately:
1. I've started a series of drawings inspired to the "whimsical woodland" theme. I don't know where I'm going with it yet, but I just enjoy drawing cute animals.. so :c Maybe a letter set? Let me know if you'd like it.

UPDATE: Secret Penpal Scavenger Hunt


You guys, it's time to start swapping! Sorry if in the past days I've sent ya'll a bunch of messages/emails but hosting such a swap requires to make sure that everyone knows what to do and how to do it, and especially that everyone's ready to keep their commitment.
Yesterday/this morning you should have received another email, with the list and your partner. IF NOT, EMAIL ME ASAP (secretpenpalscavengerhunt@gmail.com) or check your spam folder especially if you use Gmail because it flags everything as spam!
Official tags to snoop on the other participants (aka tag your swap related stuff, pretty please):
TWITTER: #secretpenpalscavengerhunt @wreckthisgirl_
TUMBLR: #secretpenpalscavengerhunt #wreckthisgirl
INSTAGRAM: #secretpenpalscavengerhunt #SPSH @wreckthisgirl
BLOGGER/WORDPRESS: please take a moment to link your post in a comment on my blog.

Now, while you wait for your email, here's some fun facts for you:
  • 78 people, including me, joined the project. Crazy, right?!
  • 3 are the "circles" I created for the round robins: 1 for who requested America only, 1 for who request Europe only, and the biggest 1 for everyone else.
  • 35, almost half of the participants are from the USA.
  • 14 people wanted a partner from another continent,  16 wanted a partner from the same continent, and the remaining 48 didn't mind.
  • I'm not quite sure of this data, but only 2 participants are male.
  • It took me about 4 hours to write and send every email.
MOAR facts:
6 people are from the UK
5 people are from Canada
4 people are from Belgium
4 people are from the Netherlands
3 people are from Malaysia
2  people are from India
2  people are from Italy

Have a nice day,
ƒ.

Disclaimer: I'll do my best to coordinate this swap the best I can and to track down possible cheaters, but unfortunately I can't be 100% sure that someone is not fooling me. I can, however, assure you that in case someone cheats, measures will be taken.

On a side note, 48/78 people, the 61% already read and replyed my email. If you're not among these, please do it soon because paranoia is killing me ç_ç

Lettermo week #1

Happy Saturday guys! Finally I've got enough time to write my first Lettermo update post.
I did quite a good job this past week, sending out 9 out of 9 letters plus some extras!
Anyway let's start from my incoming mail~

I got not one, but two letters from Meredith on the same day (I'm such a lucky girl!). The first one was a postcard from Mexico City and a muñequita, a tiny Mayan doll:
It apparently has the power to relieve you from your sadness: "tell her your sorrow, put her under your pillow, sleep peacefully. On the next day, your sorrow would have done away". I think I'm in love with it.

PROJECT: Secret Penpal Scavenger Hunt

Be excited everyone! Today I want to share a project with you and I hope to see some of you joining the fun! I'm sure you're all familiar with the "secret Santa" kind of swaps, aren't you?
Well, since Christmas is a terrible, terrible period to send out mail in my country, I'm never able to join this super fun kind of swaps, so I decided that throughout the year, I'll put on some "secret penpal scavenger hunts" to make up for all the "secret Santa" I missed.
BUT to make it possible, I need you to join this! So go ahead and read more about it ☺
