Target stamps

It's been a while since my local Target has been on their stationery "game." And it's especially been a long time since their Dollar Section had anything like these in stock. I did manage to find a few stamp sets tucked away in the corner. Not bad for $3 each.

Maybe it's better that Target doesn't tempt me with their dollar deals now that I think about it. The holidays are sneaking up, and I really need to start planning and putting together my Fall Swap Boxes. (More details on that soon to follow.)

Good mail days- Beautiful minds inspire others

This mail from California arrived right before I left for vacation last month. What a pleasant surprise!
The front of the envelope had such a pretty design on it. As I was studying the decor a little closer I realized that Ann had actually hand drawn and painted the pattern herself. So beautiful!
Here are the contents nicely bundled up...
The first envelope contained a lovely letter and this vintage postcard with some vintage stamps.
And the second bundle contained a bunch of fun handmade goods that Ann drew and made herself. I enjoyed going through everything so thoroughly admiring the time and artistic work she had put into everything.
Ticket stubs - Notice the "I heart Seaweed Kisses" one? ;)
These adorable cactus and fruit stickers
And I'll for sure want to get a frame for this handmade picture. (I need to show you guys my wall of snail mail art I've received throughout the years. It's awesome and makes me smile every time I look at it.)

Thank you so much for this, Ann. Loved every bit of your package! All these goods are just too precious to use!

Picking out another Hobonichi planner for 2015

September is finally here and the Hobonichi website is now selling their 2015 daily planners with new cover designs. I've enjoyed using my A6 size Techo for a few months at a time, but as you may have already read here, the pages were just too small for my liking (and handwriting), so I'll be trying out the A5 Cousin size this time.

I still haven't decided on a cover style, but I've already picked out a few accessories for the shopping cart:

What will your 2015 daily planner be?

I'm back!

Whew! It's been a fun couple of weeks vacationing over in Korea. I walked through many hidden alleyways, visited a few new places, met up with good  friends, ate my heart out, enjoyed some nice sweet coffee, shopped and bargained, and enjoyed everything that there was to see on this trip. Pictures are soon to follow! (I even picked up a new notebook that I'm just dying to share with you all!! Eeek!)
