Secret Door

I'm so so so so so so sorry for the lack of the posts. And I'm sorry that I always seem to be saying this. But now, this time, it's serious. More serious than all of my exams put together. I broke my darling camera. And it doesn't look like I will be getting a new one till Christmas. I will try and steal my sisters every now and again, but this means there wont be any individual pictures of letters, and maybe just one picture of them all.

I will also try and find other things to write about. Like pictures, my art, and little stories you may find interesting. I have few things in mind already, but I would love your feedback. :) I have really missed blogging, so I'm glad to be back.

I hope you are all well, and to hear from you soon. :)

Atlas Packet Thangs.

Hello my darlings. All my exams are over now! YAY. I would like to thank you all for your patience. As well as writing a bunch of letters, I have been busy making these beauties (pictured above). They are made of an old road atlas, sewn together at the edges and a label was stuck on the front. I'm going to use them for sending tea and other little goodies. :) I have made about 600million of them, so anyone I write to will probably receive one soon.

I'm sorry about the length of the post but I'm currently finishing off a few letters then I will do a another post showing you my incoming and out going mail.


EDIT; HOLY CATS, how do I get rid of all this underlining nonsense? Help? Please? D:

Mail & Fail

Hello! It's been WAY to long, since my last post, but yeah, you guessed it exams and coursework have taken up all my time. I can't wait for the summer to start, then I can blog all I want! First I shall start will my incoming and outgoing mail.


One: A lovely first letter from Caitlin. I love love love the pretty drawings on the front of the envelope.
Two: A beautiful postcard from France.
Three & Four: I won Megan's little give away. The prizes were a lovely print of the Eiffel Tower. Which is hanging very proudly on my wall. And three beautifully made atlas envelopes.


One: A reply to Megan in a brown paper envelope.
Two: A reply to Caitlin. The envelope is made from an French children's book.
Three: My first letter to Gemma, my first pen pal who actually live in England!
Four: My stuffed envelope for Mike Me At Mikes, Envelope Project.

Oh and yes I know I failed the 30 day challenge. Do I care? Not really. It was incredibly boring, and after the second day I realised what a bad idea is was. But I have learnt a lesson from this. I am never, ever going to do something like that again. Never.

Once again I am terribly sorry for my lack of posts. But it should get better soon, I only have three exams left for this school year. WOOOOOOOO.
