Soooo...I may or may not have disappeared there for quite some time. I was more or less dying from work and COMPLETELY overwhelmed! As a consequence, I'm now catching up on quite a lot of mail! BUT, I am slowly but surely getting my tuckus over my great pile of mail! I have thoroughly loved and treasured every single piece that I got! I've really got to think over some new organization ideas, though, particularly involving my incoming and outgoing mail...mostly incoming! Do you have a mail ritual? I've asked quite a few of my pals about it and so far, I really like the idea of date-stamping everything. I'm absolutely horrid at recording things in a journal, but I think I might give it a go again. We shall see! Anywho, shall we get a move on, then? None of these photos are in any sort of order!
First, I'm going to show off my lovely birthday present from Johanna! I turned 21 years old (kind of a big deal! For those of you who aren't from the US, it means we are officially legal to drink alcohol! ) and received a couple of cards and gifties! Thank you to all! And Johanna, thank you so much! I adore you, my dear!
Included are some make-up lovelies (but one of the eyeshadows broke. :( ), lots of tea, funky eyelashes, and fabulous stationary!
Up next is a gorgeous gift from Kiki! Included is an awesooooome Rilakkuma letter set, stickers, and washi tape! My first washi tape! I didn't know what to do with myself when I opened it!
Here is the pressie from Lainey! YUM!
And here is the goodies from Becky!
There's soooo much more, so I'm just going to start laying down some photos! I can't even begin to thank ya'll for everything! Oh, and there are a few more letters, but I've already filed them away and sent replies!
Fawn always has awesome stationary!
An adorable notebook, birthday card, and letter from Konstantina! :D
Letter from Elaine! Gorg envie, right?
A great package and letter from Ashley! :D
Fun stamp! Did any of you guys watch 'Franklin' when you were little?
Pop-up birthday postcard from Kiki!
Lovely letter from Marie! How cute is her stationary and UNICORN stamp? Wait, is that a unicorn? Or just a pastel colored horse?
Stickers and Hello kitty-ness!
A lovely letter from Laura!
How beautiful is this envie from Stephenie?!
A gorgeously stamped envie from Kiki!
Check out the awesome stationary package from Liz! :) PAPERCHASE!
I'm pretty much in love with these labels! I am a label-a-holic. LABELS. I love them all!
An adorable letter from Terry! How cute are those postcards? THE CAT IS DOING YOGA! The girls at my work would love it...I'm thinking of taking it in and posting it on our board!
So this is something that I'm crazy excited for! Two readers wrote me! Blog readers! Ah! It's a huge first for me and I was SO STOKED!
PHEW!. Seriously. Tons of mail. I know. I'm writing my butt off! But before I close this up, check out the awesome birthday card from my parents!
It also came with a packet of floaties, haha. It was the closest thing my mom could think of that would remind me of tires! Why? Because my birthday present is a new pair (Seriously, only two, haha.) tires for my car!
I know this post was/is pretty boring, but I wanted to get all of these photos up! I've got a couple of neat ideas for posts that should be coming up soon! I'm thinking photo-an-hour and a new what's in my bag post!
