Purrrrfect envelopes, Outgoing mail, Pancakes and Relaxation.

Adorable cat envelopes I just made out of an old calender.

A letter for Denmark and another for the States.

A letter for a new pal in Greece - mailing it tomorrow.

A delicious pancake my boyfriend made for me for pancake Tuesday
topped with golden syrup and freshly whipped cream. >_<

Right now. .. . It's time to relax with a steaming cup of tea some bickies,
a movie and my better half. <3

P.S. Needless to say the date set on my camera is totally off!!

iPod pick of the week!

So in keeping with my promise to post on my blog more frequently, I''ve taken inspiration from others and decided to feature a musical segment. My first song choice is a song has been a favourite of mine for as long as I can remember.

It's by an Irish band called 'The Cranberries', The song is an Irish protest song about the troubles in Northern Ireland and more specifically about the killing of two young children in an IRA bombing in England.

I present to you .. .. . Zombie.

Please note I'd of course love your thoughts and comments but I do not want to get into a debate about Catholics and Protestants / who's right or who's wrong with anyone. I have my beliefs and opinions and you have yours, let's not air them here.

Home-made Envelopes

Here is one of my first attempts at home-made envelopes, what do you think of it?

This particular one is going to a new pal in German but I plan to create lots more so if your a pal of mine you'll probably be finding one in your mailbox real soon. :)


Mail Art

Here are a couple of my mail art envies from over the past couple of months. I adore mail art and like to do this for my penpals whenever I can find the time. I like to think it makes makes my letters for them that little bit more special. :)

A letter for the amazing Olivia. <3

Christmas cards for pals in France, Finland and the United States.

For my wonderful pal, Katie. <3

A cute Autumn envie for Alex <3

Westlife envie.

Lilo and Stitch envie.

My Bad!

So here's the story, I'd finally created my very own blog with such possibilities but I've shamefully neglected my blogging duties!

Embarrassingly I have a meagre total of two posts to my name due to lack of time and laziness on my part. A lame excuse I know but I'm not giving up and I'm back to put things right.

Expect regular posts from here on out people and please feel free to join in and comment. I will not fail you again! ;)
