June is almost over?!?

Is it just me, or does time seem to be flying by?? I feel like it's going way too fast!  Anyway, just posting some incoming/outgoing and then I'm headed for a nap. I've had a headache for 3 days that I can't seem to get rid of, it's starting to irritate me!

To Abbye in Northern Ireland.

To the wonderful Shannah.
My envelopes were a little plain this time, I really need to look through my stickers in my scrapbooking supplies or go get some new ones for decorating envies. 

From Laney, unfortunately her reply in April never made it to me, thank goodness she emailed me and we figured out what was going on, I was worried she didn't enjoy my first letter to her!

I loved her stamps she used!

And now, I am way too excited over my next incoming :) plus, it shows how little I know about some of the things you can buy for decorating letters and packages and things. Anyway, I see a lot of bloggers always talking about Washi Tape, now, living in San Diego, it's so hard to find penpalling supplies, so I've taken to looking online, but everything is always so expensive, especially when you add shipping! Anyway, I did a search on Etsy for Washi Tape (and of course a ton came up!) But one in particular caught my eye. Here are my reasons, 1. I didn't know if I was going to like it; 2. There are so many designs out there, how do I choose?.  So, I ended up at the lovely shop leboxboutique looking at this particular item. What I liked about it, was I was able to choose 8 different designs, 2 feet of each, and it was less than $10! Also, I ordered it on Monday of this week and it was waiting in my mailbox for me yesterday! She was so quick to get it sent off to me! I haven't used them yet, but I love the designs! I am definitely going to order from her again, I think this time I'll get some plain colors, and maybe go with whole rolls. Anyway, it was a wonderful shopping experience and I can't wait to buy from her again! Plus she had a ton of other things that caught my eye as well.

Beautiful designs, and so nicely hand rolled! 

And, a free gift! Also was a coupon code for 10% off my next order! 

Well, that is all for now. I still have two more letters to write, but they are going to have to wait for the weekend. Hopefully tomorrow this headache will be gone (and hopefully I'll get some sleep tonight!).  Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!



  1. Ooh get over the headache!! Ugh - headaches suck.

    I keep talking myself out of Washi tape as being too expensive.

    1. Yeah, I am finally feeling better today! I've always been a headache/migraine sufferer, but this is the worst one I've had in a long time!

      You should check out this Etsy shop for Washi Tape, she has some really good deals, the deal that I got came out to about $7 and I got a total of 16 feet in 8 different designs. Even her whole rolls are fairly cheap, but I think I'm going to keep going with her "by the foot" deals.
