full basket and full heart

14 Sep

Well this past week has been a flurry of awesomeness, challenge, excitement and inspiration. Thank you to everyone who read my Etsy Featured Shop interview, and for all of your kind comments all over social media.20130914-101907.jpgEvery day this week, when riding to the post office, my gold bike basket was chock full of orders from the shop, while my heart was full of happiness, love and pride. It is so exciting to have the reach of your brand grow! Dozens of animal lovers who just stumbled upon my shop are now making room in their nests for some of my hand made creatures.20130914-101922.jpgIf you’d like to have a lovely parcel covered in vintage stamps to arrive in your mailbox, why not treat yourself? Thanks once again to those who recently purchased from me; your animals are traveling swiftly towards you. Gratitude is also directed at all my lovely friends on social media with their kind words, love and support; your interest and encouragement are always fuel for my creative fire!

postal pretties

Sent a big pile of mail out at the beginning of last month, and shared a few of them in this post here. Here’s a peek at a few more of the pretty paper parcels that landed in some of my penpals’ postboxes.

*A little mail art side note for all of my penpals: my mail will be forwarded from my old address to my new one for the next 4 months, so feel free to send envelopes there or e-mail me to get the new one. xo

in the stars

20130615-121459.jpgAren’t these spectacular? I’ve been adoring the zodiac sign stamps since they started releasing them as singles last year. At the end of February they distributed the entire collection of signs as a set. Finally got my paws on my own sheet!20130615-121511.jpgI will admit that reading horoscopes is a bit of a guilty pleasure for me, so these are extra special little additions to the collection. Do you also reach for the newspaper, curious to find out what the stars have in store for you?
