Spoilt. Rotten.

You May Remember in Late 2012 I particpated in the "Oh Hello Friend" Shop Package Swap - Well Here is the Totally Amazeballs package I recieved from Olivia at Mibbi Design. You can see what I sent her Here. All in All my Favourite Project for 2012 <3


Bookworming. 12 Books in 17 days..

Being on Summer Break from Work has meant alot of wonderful downtime! I picked up Slammed by Colleen Hoover just before New Years & got totally sucked into the YA Romance thing. It's not everyone's cup of tea (it's never been mine until 2 weeks ago!) But sometimes a girl just needs A boy that isn't going to let her down, there's something about boys in books. They just seem that much better on paper.. So here are those I've read so far.. don't judge me! :)

(in the order they were read)
1. Slammed - Colleen Hoover
2. Point of Retreat - Colleen Hoover
3. Hopeless - Colleen Hoover
4. Beautiful Disaster - Jamie Mcguire
5. Easy - Tammara Webber

Get Inspired - Melbourne Typography..

I was constantly squeeling with delight walking around beautiful melbourne on my latest trip there. I thought i'd share a few of the rad typographical signs i spotted on my adventures.

Projects to Join (January)

This year I've decided to be a little bit more vocal about the billions of wonderful snail mail(ish) projects floating around the blogosphere. Here are my January Favourites - Enjoy && get involved!

League of Extraordinary Penpals
Okay you've got to be kidding me right? "The League of Extraordinary Penpals" !?! Going to go out on a limb here and say best thing to happen in 2013 (yes already!). Run by two seriously lovely girls - Julie from Penpal of the Week && Laura from Please Deliver To - although it was only announced a week or so ago this has got me pretty excited! I signed up as soon as I could (at a discounted rate before February 1!) The Survey I was sent to fill in was super duper fun & The snailmail challenges & swaps look freaking rad. Safe to say if you're into mail - you NEED to be a part of this!

A Recent convert to all that is Valentines Day, after only just figuring out (at 23!) that it's not just about silly boys but anyone & everyone you love, this is another project I'm super excited about. Handmade Valentines Cards? What's not to Love :) Signups close 25th of January. Quick Quick Quick! Run by Lyndsey over at The Stationery Place 
Canadian Based Artist Laura Bucci recently put out a call for Mail-Artist to contribute to an exhibition taking place at a Canadian gallery during November 2013. A Wonderful opportunity - the theme is "This is Where I go" & asks for a Handmade Mail Art Piece on a Postcard to be sent through the post to an address listed. I will definately be doing this. Visit The Project Page to find out more.
Oh & If you have a snailmail(ish) project you'd like me to share please email me & I'll do my best to get the word out there!
