Back in July I signed up to Tillie from 'she waits for whispers' photoswap. The instructions were easy - send your partner 24 photos. That's it. An easy-peasy-Japanesy swap perfect for a photo lover like me. Last week I received these lovely photos from Allison - a collage student at James Madison University. It was so much fun to look through her photos and learn a little about her life in Virginia and see some of the gorgeous countryside around her place. Thanks Allison!
As well as receiving mail during the week, I also sent some letters using these envelopes designed by Stella of 'the goldern adventures of a very dark horse'. Stella is based in New Zealand and designs for Frank and Dean, making calendars, cute to-do lists and cards. I was lucky enough to pick up these envelopes for free when she was doing a bit of a test-run. They're fantastic. Incredibly easy to assemble and fit a standard card or letter with ease. Plus you get a chance to get your colouring pencils out and personalise it a little by colouring in the telephone, borders etc etc. Great fun.
