3 things

Hello guys, how's your week? Mine's okay so far, it's finally getting warmer and it seems like the rain won't show up for a while now. It's been a month probably, since I last posted about my "three things", so here's what I've been doing lately:


1. I uploaded my second video (my first being a very cr**py one about my WTJ) on YouTube, and I had so much fun doing it, that I'm fantasising about making a few more in the future, maybe about smashing/crafting/DIY, penpal things and more drawings. Therefore, it would really mean a lot to me if you could check out the video and let me know what you think? You know I really value your opinion! {On a side note, I uploaded with a very nice background song, but YT made me change it :c}
2. We adopted an itty bitty kitty ♥ He's a crossbreed of a Chartreux and a Burmese so we don't know how he's gonna look like, but he's already the cutest thing ever, so who cares! Oh and we've named him Duster ☺

3. Make sure you're not busy on May 3rd because a big announcement is coming your way, I'm so very excited about this project and I hope you guys will appreciate it too as it was a big investment of time and money, but you know.. the thing we do for (what we) love!

What have you been doing lately? You know I'm nosy :D
Have a lovely day,
ƒ.

smash sunday

Hi guys! Oh, how I've missed "smash sunday", have you? Well, I hope you did, because I have some post in store for you, not necessarily about my smashbook, but about crafting and scrapbooking in general.
To start off again, today I'm having a lovely lady guest posting here.. let's see what she shared with us! ☺

Hi everyone! My name is Michelle Marie, and I blog over at Seaweed Kisses. When I'm not busy eating, traveling, or working my 9 to 5 job, my hours are spent crafting and writing.Today I would like to share some of my favorite go-to snail mailing tools.

I've been snail mailing for years now, but only amongst close friends and family, you see. It wasn't until recently that I started to branch out, and made some new wonderful pen pals. I honestly had no idea that the snail mail community still existed given how reliant we've quickly become on modern technology. Silly me, I guess I've been missing out all these years.

Now that my pen pal list has grew significantly, this has given me great opportunities to exercise my creativity and to find inspiration in everyday surroundings. One of the most recent projects that helped me bring out more of my imagination was the awesome Secret Pen Pal Scavenger Hunt that Fab had wonderfully put together.  It was so much fun, and I was introduced to many more like-minded people from all over the world.

So here I am, hooked on snail mailing and decorating paper.

In the past, the typical pen and paper were my best friends, but now as you'll see my crafting tools have greatly expanded since those beginning days.

Cute Finds III

Hi guys! Today I'm gonna share with you some of the things I've bought lately.
While I was in Paris, there were many, many cute shops where I would have loved to go on a shopping spree, but as I've said many times, the prices were too high for my budget.
Anyway, I do managed to get some cute things anyway ☺
As I wrote in my previous post, while visiting the LaFayette galleries, we stumbled upon a PaperChase stand. My boyfriend patiently waited a good 40 minutes for me to decide what to get without spending a fortune, and this is what I got:
➽ a set of stamp shaped postcards with the cutest illustrations:
➽ a scrapbook with black pages and a gorgeous Asian themed cover:

Mail Update, finally!

Hi guys! Long time no see, uh? I'm back in the mood for blogging, but this time I'll go straight to the point, showing you what I sent and received lately, as I've missed this kind of posts c:

So, as some of you may know, it was my birthday back in March and I received lots of birthday mail from my lovely penpals ♥ (some of the letters are not shown as I didn't have pictures of them on my computer, but I'll post them in the next post for sure!)

I received a gorgeous card from Thea while she was in the UK, look how pretty! And I just love how it says: "Fab Friend" on the top left corner :3
I received an awesome package from Kelly in Canada:

Everything is so gorgeous, and being a big fan of deer, I can't help but loving the notebook and the card! Also.. the milk candies she sent me lasted just the time for the picture, they were delicious!
