A boxed snailmail

I am active in a snail mail group, where we have the Wall of Fame. Every month a member tells a bit about herself and than we all sent a nice snail mail to that person.
This month I used a box from my Christmas cards, I made a little fox, a card and I added a teabag and a little role of tape. I am happy with the result.

On November 5th it was my birthday! And in the afternoon I had some time left, so I made this little fox! With a pattern of the book: Mollie Makes: Animals & Friends. There are so many great ideas in there. Can't wait to make my next little project.

And my birthday cards:

Some great snail mail!

In the last weeks I recieved a lot of snail mail! Here are some pictures of the little treasures I unpacked.

A little mouse

This little mouse is my second crochet project. It turned out so cute! The pattern I used is also from Stip en Haak.
Now I am working on a project that is a little bit bigger, it's a chameleon.

Pink bunny

I just finished my first Amigurumi! I made this lovely bunny with the pattern of Stip en Haak. They have a lot of cute free patterns. I just love my little bunny with his huge ears and fluffy tale.
There are also a lot of great patterns you can purchase from them.

Just a little surprise

Sometimes it is nice to surprise someone, this time I surprised my name buddy Daphne. I still had a little plastic bag, wich you can open and close with a little sliding thing.
First I made a background and I filled it with some little gifts. This is how it turned out:

Blue Snail Mail

This is the blue snail mail I made for Ramona, unfortunately it disappeared during its journey from my house to her mailbox. Just the envelop arrived. So the next time I have to make a new blue snail mail :). So I am glad that I made some pictures.

A little birthday card

For the birthday of a snailmail friend I made this lovely card, I just love bunnies and Japanese influences.

All handmade

It was my turn again to make a snail mail for my snail mail buddy Sylvia. This time I send her only hand made items. She really liked it, so now I can show it here.
This little package existed out of a hand made envelop, an owl made of felt, a little soap flower, some paper flowers, a small envelop and  a letter, all in the same kind of bags with some lovely wooden ladybugs.

My first crocheted heart!

After a day long trying out all the different stitches I made this lovely heart. I used a youtube movie to learn it, so easy if you can look back.
I am quit proud of it, I always loved all the lovely crocheted stuff other people made!
It isn't perfect, but my fiancé loved it, I gave it to him as a little gift.

Vintage rules!

It still is one of my favorite themes to work with: vintage. I just love to combine little gifts in the same color and decorate everything the same way.
So yes, an other vintage snail mail :)

Autumn is coming!

This time I send a lovely autumn snail mail, it really fits this time of the year. I love working with the real autumn colors, like orange and brown.
The "star" of this snail mail is the lovely hedgehog! I bought this one, but I really want to make those myself, it is so cute! I bought one for myself as well ;)
Further a handmade card, some coffee and tea for the cold days that are coming up, a couple of labels, leaves and mushrooms for some nice autumn decoration.
Have a great autumn this year and enjoy the beautiful colors of nature :)

Glass jars great for storage and fun to decorate!

I bought some awesome glass jars. Two very big ons, in one of them I storage my deco- and washitapes and in three little ones I keep my buttons.
But besides storage, they are really fun to decorate! Just look at the pictures and try it yourself!

I decorated the lid of the jar with decotape. Al you need is: a jar, some decotape and scissors.
I matched the colors of the decotape with the colors of the buttons I store in the jar.
