It’s finally Friday! I’ve been waiting for the weekend for so long. Well, since Monday morning to be exact. 😉 I love weekends because I love being at home, having time to be creative, writing letters and doing other crafts.
Most of the time I write letters on the weekends because it takes me several hours to write one and during the week I’m always so tired after work that I most likely won’t be able to finish a letter.
When is your favorite letter writing time? And do you write your letters in one sitting or in stages? I write most of my letters in one sitting unless I get interrupted and have no time to finish it. If I write long letters I might sit here and write for 3-5 hours straight (with a few kitty interruptions ;-)) After that my hand hurts but I feel great. 🙂
At the moment I have to write 2 letters to Germany and 2 letters to California…not sure how much I’ll get done this weekend since I’ll be busy pretty much all day tomorrow.
Here are a few things I wanted to share with you tonight…
Last week I received my very first swap from Honduras! 😀 This might not seem special to you all but it’s very special to me! I’ve never received mail from Honduras and these postcards definitely are two of my most exotic ones! 😀 I also received some money which looks pretty cool. 🙂
I also received some very cute stationery from Julie in Canada who has a cool Etsy store and runs the Penpal of the Week blog. I’m sure you all know here…if not, you should definitely check out her sites! ♥
What I really like is that you can choose how many sheets of paper and how many envelopes you want. I chose 16 sheets and 2 envelopes because I write long letters….so I need lots of paper! 😛
Isn’t the owl cute?
And because you all know that I’m addicted to making envelopes, I have to share with you the latest ones I made this evening:
The pictures are from a $1 farm calendar that I found yesterday. Perfect for envelope making! 😀 Now is the time to stock up on cheap calendars!
And while I was making my envelopes my cats were busy playing with a big paper bag…
Blackberry is such a sweetheart! ♥
So, tomorrow morning I have to go to the post office to buy my Christmas stamps (can’t wait!!) and I’ll also stop by at the dollar store to get a gift bag and maybe some other things…If I find nice things I’ll probably do a little dollar store shopping haul. 😀
Have a great weekend my dear readers! 🙂
