It's Been So Long!

Well, thanks in part to insane work stress, the ending of my first semester at CSUCI and malaria (or a severe throat infection). Sadly my blog and daily mailings have suffered!!! But. I have a four day weekend including turkey day and school is over for a bit soon! Alas I shall have more time for me. Here are a few emergency postcards I put together to send out!

I just had a great idea for the next Twilight Moms exchange. It's a gift exchange and I am going to combine my love for making gifts and my love for stationery. I am going to make Twilight post cards!!! And jewelry. Isn't that fantastic? I'm excited.

Anxiety and Mail

Strange. For some reason as my left thumb hits my iphone keys it tingles... Anywho. So I am anxious! It's already dark and I am home alone and it feels much later than it actually is. I feel my day slipping away. I am also anxious for the uploading of Hillywoods new Eclipse Parody!!! I keep checking and being disappointed. Yes, I am aware that I am a dork. As for mail I am on track for my Letter a Day attempt. This is day three and fours missives.

This is the pretty little piece I sent my friend Unchie. It is part of the stationery kit I bought from Paper Cuts Etsy shop!!!

On a very happy note another one of my paper parcels delivery has been confirmed!!! Samara from Letter Lover posted a lovely thank you on her blog to me! I was so excited when I did my weekly check on her blog to find it!!!

Just a quickie!!!

Haha. So day one for my mail challenge went off without a hitch. I was in Trader Joes the other evening and saw my bestie Fancy Nancy's favorite candy, Gummy Tummies. They are gummy penguins with tummies filled with juicy, fruity goo. So I slapped a label and some stamps and sent them on their way.

The second letter is to a Twimom who was forgotten in Octobers' exchange and I am valiantly stepping in and sending her a late one. I love doing stuff like this!!! I hope it makes them feel as warm and fuzzy as it does me.

Tomorrow is Tomorrow

I am going to start my daily letter experiment first thing tomorrow. I have already compiled a list of about forty recipients! This should be fun. I think it will also be a lot of work but I look forward to the challenge and the distraction.

On another mail note I received an amazing homemade postcard from my bestie Michelle who never writes me back. But I forgive her because it is the best postcard I have yet to receive!!!

Finally, on my drive home this evening I managed to take a pretty picture of the sunset and after a little photo magic I think I want to print a few for postcards! Hmmm...

A New Project

So. I have a new project. Which will hopefully not only bring joy to others but also bring interesting mail to my mailbox!

The premise is pretty self explanatory but I will attempt to write and mail a letter a day to any and all recipients I can think of!!! If anyone is interested on receiving one just email me your address.


I don't have an end date or time frame so we shall see. I think I want to do it until I complete my personal task of downsizing the amount of space I take up on this planet. So, at least through the new year.

I will post pictures of letters sent and received. Maybe I'll even make a zine after I'm done that people can have. Super exciting!!!

Ramblings of A Bored Student

I am currently sitting in my Major British Authors English Lit Class deciding whether or not I feel like paying attention... How amazing is it that I can blog from my phone, in class!!! (sigh) technology. I am thoroughly disappointed in the fact that my new day planner doesn't begin until the first of January... I still have to decide if I want to use the Wizard of Oz one or the 50's housewife one. Decisions, decisions. Blah. Ok it's time to
join the class discussion!
