{YAY} I got mail!

Hello all,

I don't know about you, but I still get super excited every time I open my mailbox and find post! Now I'm not talking bills, no my heart definitely sinks when those arrive. I'm talking excited deliveries of eBay finds, goodies from pals and NOW...mail art!!

A little while ago, the wonderful Jessica of 'nature's my friend' and I started chatting on good old Twitter. It turns out she's pretty super cool and actually it's a real shame she's all the way over in Canada! She makes lovely items from her sweet animal illustrations, and like me sells them in her little Etsy shop here.
Well....not only does she make lovely goodies that she sells, she's also a committed pen pal {kudos to you Jessica! See this amazing post here} and as you can see - she sent me a wonderful illustrated envelope of joy which I was not expecting to receive! So it was an exciting day indeed when this turned up in our little postbox!
Jessica included some gorgeous paper ephemera, vintage cuttings and snippets of pretty washi tapes...and what really made it special was the little notes on the back of many of the images. It's really nice to receive such kind words, especially when you're maybe getting bogged down with everything!

So thank you Jessica, I am already starting to collect some little bits and bobs that I can send you - so keep an eye out for mr Postman!

I hope this little post might inspire you to send your pals a little bit of snail mail again, there's nothing quite like the feeling of something that is hand written, and with love too!

Go on, make someones day!
