Jan. 30th, 2012

It's almost January 30th! Which means I will be posting the winner of the TEO Stationary giveaway here in about ten minutes! At the moment, I'm watching Mission: Impossible! I haven't seen this movie in so long! Weirdly enough, it's kind of inspiring me a bit! I used to love coming up with ideas for new young adult novels, and I may have to think about perhaps a spy outline! I've written so many outlines it's not even funny....I used to write ALL THE TIME when I was in high school! I would print out draft after draft to correct my mistakes, keep them in binders, and then eventually discard them because either a) I hit a massive amount of writer's block or b) I realized that I was pretty much writing my manuscript based on a novel I was currently obsessed with. For example, Harry Potter. Totally made my version of it! I was only fourteen, but still!

Anywho, since today is a Sunday, I obviously have no mail posts! I've actually got a boatload of mail going out, but I'm honestly too lazy to photograph it. I've got letters going out tomorrow to: Nicole in Germany, Gladys in Singapore, Bev in England, Elyse in Sweden, Jennifer in England, KG in Canada, my dear Clare in England, and also Hannah in England!

Something I also wanted to share is an awesome post from an even err...awsomer? lady! Bianca over in Australia is the wonderful young woman who owns (Does one own a blog? oh well.) Goodnight Little Spoon! For quite some time, I've been kvelling over her mail art! It's so lovely! But recently, meaning VERY recently, she posted a few of her books that she's made in summer school! hey are just fabulous and I loooove the idea of them! It makes me want to take a book-making course!

Check them out!

This one is a letter holder:

The second is a postcard book!

Both photos are credit to Bianca!

You can check out her full post here!
