I was very excited recently to receive this so very beautiful mail in the post. I had been admiring the creations by Ally from the Everyday Miracles blog when she very kindly popped a letter in the post to me!
Don't those biscuit postcards bring back memories? And look how well she recreated the biscuit on the envelope. I really was thrilled to receive it Ally, thank you :)
So, I got busy and spent some time last weekend sketching and painting up my own decorated envelope to send back to Ally. This is it! What do you think?
Above is the reverse (obviously). I absolutely, thoroughly enjoyed decorating the envelope and posting a few goodies to a new blog friend. I was then completely thrilled when Ally posted it on instagram and had a whole bunch of people like it too!
I'm thinking I'd like to do this more. Even create a little group of people where we could post to each other. What do you think? Is it something you'd be interested in? I'll think about it and get back to you.
And, because so many of you requested it, I dug out an old photo of me spinning plates. Excuse the very daggy look (think my hair was in a bun?). I don't have a video so hopefully this will suffice as proof. :)
After this photo was taken I managed to get six plates going at once. FYI, they are plates made specifically for spinning. For memory they have a lip and a slight indentation in the centre, so once you get a spin happening, they sit pretty happily on the stick. It was fun.
Hopefully I will get another post in before next Monday, but if not, I'm planning a Bits and bobs post on Monday, so hopefully a couple of you will join in.
ps I'm joining in with Jane's
