Spring(Winter) Cleaning.

After a Week of being chained to my bed I am Finally up & About again - && What better way to celebrate than with a big Sprinter (Spring/Winter) Clean :) I thought I'd share with you - While it is free of papery mess! - a Few of my Favourite things around my room..

Oh && If you haven't yet - join "Papered Thought's" new Facebook Page!


Lauren Carney is by far one of my Favourite Artists - I Bought a set of her beautiful postcards (Mini Prints) at the "Finders Keepers" Market last December.. I finally found a place to display them :) I Whipped up a Paint Chip Garland - Found some itty bitty pegs & Strung it all up - Pretty hey!


My "Real World" Pinterest board :) A collection of my All time Favourite Envelopes, Photos, Postcards & other Bits & Pieces.. ++ My Huge Wall World Map.


Another Super Favourite shop of mine is Holy Kitsch - They have tons of amazing "Day of the Dead" themed items ++ lots of Vintage too!

Oh & Here is a little look at a few of the pages inside my 2012 Journal - Any Page/Idea Suggestions are loved <3



Currently Reading - The Scorpio Races by Maggive Stiefvater && Nothing - Janne Teller.

This week being stuck in bed wasn't all that bad - but with no incoming mail I had a little wander around the blogosphere & contacted some super sweet ladies to sent some mail too!

Danni from "Oh Hello Friend"

Tabitha from "Tabitha Emma"

  6. love your journal ideas...mind if i take a few? ;) last month i started to make an art journal. i had never done one before and am happy with how it's turning out. some ideas that i use would be putting stationery on pages, different things i might get when out(postcards, business cards, interesting tags, pictures, etc..) i also love to write with gel pens. :)
    beautiful mail as always girl!

  7. i've heard a lot of good things about Maggie Stiefvater. You'll have to let us know if it's good! And I love your photos. Very inspiring!

  17. I received your lovely letter yesterday Rin, thank you! I'm very envious of your washi tape collection :) Have a great day x

  18. hi rin! you sound like my kind of girl. i'm a huge fan of snail mails too and have been collecting postcards since i was little. i love how you seem to put a lot of effort on the mails you send out and they really look so personal and lovely. you inspire me! :) kisses from dubai! - aizzing

  19. lady! really cute blog! I run the scribble project, so just wanted to say big thanks for putting a link in your sidebar, lovely to see you like the project.

    Your journal in this post is cuteee! I 'm a sucker for anything that's hand-drawn, neat and colourful. Maybe you'd have some fun with my book The Scribble Diary: www.thescribblediary.com - if you do end up having a doodle in it, let me know, it'd be fun to see your handiwork in there. xx

  20. I love that paint chip garland! You should do a tutorial on it, because I'd love to make on ... or, sell them on your blog. I'd definitely buy one :)

    x Jasmine

  21. Hey there Rin. It's taken me THIS LONG to a) write back to you (hope it's there by now) and b) check out your blog. THANKS for making contact. I think what you're doing is wonderful. If everyone could get a letter in the post every now and then I think we'd all be a lot happier! You certainly brightened my day! peace out lady! Zed.


Thankyou For Spreading the Love! Keep Writing.
Peace & Love xo
