Guess what? Time for new mail!

I haven't gotten much mail lately and of course, I managed to forget what I was sending out, BUT I have photo's nonetheless! How have you all been? Is Fall starting to rear it's head where you are? It certainly isn't over here! It's supposed to be in the 90's for the next week! BOO! I want rain so bad! It hasn't rained since June for the most part. It's killing me! :( Anywho, let's get these photos out so ya'll (when did I go Southern?) don't have to look at snakes! Haha. Here we go!

Outgoing to Vi! Getting a bit more into some simply mail art!

My last outgoing that I managed to photograph...a handmade postcard to Hannah in England, who I haven't heard from after my reply to her letter...I'm hoping I have her address correct! I used my Hermes for the label! :D I took this photo before it was completely finished, though. I stuck a few foreign cancelled stamps onto it afterwards!

Next, one from Sav!

How cute is this stationary?! And she sent me an air mail envie! For all of you who don't know, I LOVE AIR MAIL ENVELOPES! I'm always so stoked to find one in a letter that I can use for my letter-writing! :D And the sweetheart used her best stationary for my letter! I adore her!

Next is from Lady Helen! And she sent me a picture her son Dylan drew me, but I like to keep those bits private. :)

Next is a lovely package from Arwen! She sent me a Sottish flag magnet for my collection! :D

And next up is something fun! A letter from Kiki with an AMAZING package of goodies! She knows me so well and knows that I often where TONS of blue/turquoise to work! You guys should REALLY check out her shop! She just a lot of custom stuff as well but her work is absolutely fantastic! I'm currently designing a business card design for her! :D

Her packaging is absolutely GORGEOUS and it always is! She always amazes me!

Her items are always so carefully packages! PINK BUBBLE WRAP!!!

I managed to not take a photo of the cute little circular acrylic box she sent the ring in (ugh!) but here is what she sent!

A chocolate ring:

And then macaroon earrings! All in blue! She sent me quite a few pairs and basicvally...I freaked out over them, haha. But my iPhone wouldn't focus on them for some reason, so I'm going to have to take her photos from her store! (Credit to Karola!). My favorite were a pair of heart shaped macaroons, but I couldn't find a photo of them in earring-form, so you'll have to sort of imagine it from a photo of a heart macaroon in ring form!

And thennnnn.......she sent me matching blue round macaroon earrings! AMAZING, right?!

Today is my day off, so I think I might spend it replying to a few letters and then perhaps crafting a few collage postcards and folding some new envelopes! I discovered one of my hidden vintage music books, so I guess it's time to get folding!

Oh, and lastly, I am official! Officially a supervisor! Here's my shiny new store key! YAY!

I love the randomness of your collage envelopes! I'm still in the boat of cross cordinating what I collage on the envelopes, but I have sort of jetisoned off my need to always make sure everything gets in the 'right' place where the layout is concerned! Apparently, giving up complete control is still an issue, but the last envelopes I've collaged by far were more free flowing than others!! :) :)

I love this post! :) Awesome!
