A message to people from BELGIUM & THE NETHERLANDS!

Thehe here’s a little update, a bit different from the sort! :D

I actually decided to make a Facebook group for planners, crafters and stationery addicts from Belgium & The Netherlands! :D I have been wanting to do this for a while now! and finnaly did it! The reason for this is that I honestly know close to “nobody” in Belgium with whom I can share my excitement for planners, crafting and stationery.

Oh how I would love to share the joy and excitement when I visit a Hema store for example! :D My dream is for this group to grow and bring people together! :) One day I hope to even organize some planner addicts meets! Drinking some coffee and tea together while sharing our experiences with planners and tales. =)

I’ll just see how this goes! :D

So for the people from Belgium and the Netherlands who want to join, feel free! :D

https://www.facebook.com/groups/1631613843780192/
oh and you can definitely invite others who share the passion! :D

So this was just a small little update! ;)
I hope everyone is having a great week!

DIY Snailmail envelope decorating!

Hey there! :D

I’m back with a video! A lot of you know that snailmail has been super populair lately! You see it around on blogs, instagram, pinterest,… One of the fun things about swapping snailmail is the decorating part! Giving your snailmail personality and charm. :) It’s especially fun when you work with a certain theme! That way it can be a creative challenge! :D I decided to make you guys a video where you can see me decorating some snailmail! Of course this is just an example. ;) Be creative, put your personality in it! :D I’m sure it’ll put a smile on the receiver’s face!

Here’s a picture of 3 plain snailmail envelopes that I decorated!

IMG_1149
I made a “Superhero” themed one, a “random things” themed one and a “flower” themed one. The one with the flower theme is the one I’ve put together in the video! :) So you can see the process of that! The superhero one, I just HAD to make as an example, since I love them! :D And lately I’ve been collecting some superhero stickers, so yeah. ;) For the envelope with “random things” I used my DIY cat stamp! :D You can see the envelopes more up close in the video! ;)

I hope you all enjoyed the video and blogpost! :D Have fun decorating and swapping snailmail! :3

Bye!

Happy Mail from Deya!

Hey there! :D

I got another happy mail!, yay! this one’s a little special though. (not that the others aren’t…) My friend and I, whom I met years ago decided to become penpals! She lives in the Netherlands and I live in Belgium, so staying in touch hasn’t been the easiest, so therefore, SNAILMAIL! Yep! I’m very happy to get in touch with her again, especially with this medium! Since we’re both stationery lovers, it’s perfect!

Like I always do I recorded the opening of her lovely happy mail! :D But first, some pictures!

IMG_1124
Look at these! :D I absolutely adore those cute suirrel clips and that GIGANTIC strawberry clip! I just love it! Also those cute embellishments! I’m definitely gonna make paper clips out of those little strawberry embellishments!

IMG_1127
She gave me a lovely dog keycap! I love the little dog’s expression, it’s funny!^^ Aside from that she included some small deco tape rolls with a dispender! They are so tiny. And then some cute bear pageflags!

IMG_1129
I got my first stickerflakes EVER! :D This I am very excited about! And they are Kokeshi dolls! How cute are these? :o I really want to try making my own stickerflakes (working on that) :) Love the teeth stickerflakes too! She also gave me cute flamingo and cat stickers!

IMG_1131
Here’s the letter she wrote me! She added a cute sticker and sticky note! Her writing is so pretty. :o The pink pen you see next to the letter is actually an invisible ink pen! When you use the little light you can see what was written down with this pen. (it took me some time to figure out though. :p)

IMG_1137
These magnets are just <3 There are so many! I love the whole newspaper theme a lot! :D I already used them on my magnet board of course!

Now for the video: (if you’re curious to see my reaction :D)

Well, that concludes another Happy mail update! For those who are waiting for more planner related videos & posts, don’t worry ! I’m working on those. :D Bye everyone!

The Fallen Angels store HAUL!

IMG_1021
Hey everyone! :D how’s everyone doing?
I visited my favorite shop in Ghent again and bought some lovely stationery goodies! Ofc, you all know I love sharing my finds with you guys! In the picture above you can see a picture of the things I got there! Just look at the colors! <3 Here are some closer pictures:
IMG_1010
Here shown are some awesome postcards! :D Most of the postcards that I found in the shop were made by the shop owner and her family self, which I think is awesome! I reall love that “Alice in Wonderland card”! Although the one with the animals in space has to be my favorite! Which one do you like the most? ;) Notice that envelope on the left? She actually put the cards in that envelope, so you just get that as an extra! Since I’m a stationery addict, this made me very happy!

IMG_1009
These are two notebooks that I also picked up there! I didn’t have any travel themed notebooks, and I just thougth these were awesome! The famous airmail blue and ride stripes is what convinced me though.. :p

IMG_1011
Look at these!! I was immediately sold when I saw these! I didn’t have any “letter-themed” Washi tape yet and when I saw these I got so excited! They also have this lovely vintage feel! This washi tape set came in a cute tin seethrough box which just added to its charm!

IMG_1017
This was another Washi tape tin box set that I couldn’t ignore! I just love the stationery theme and I couldn’t look away! Well, this concludes everything I bought at my favorite store! If you were to visit Belgium, you should definitely swing by this store in Ghent! I highly recommend it! :3 In the future I will make a spotlight post or video (not sure yet) to show you why I love this store so much!

That’s it for this haul update! :D Bye guys!

MY STICKERS GOT ACCEPTED FOR LINE! :D

You guys! :D

I am so exctied right now!! Some of you might know the app called “LINE”? it’s a chat app just like whatsapp and many others. Although LINE is mostly used around Asia. I mostly use the app to connect to Japanese friends! In the app you can also use stickers with different emotions,… (Just like facebook, although LINE was first :D )

LINE now has something called “Creator market” which means you can try sending in your own drawn stickers which they can sell, and you get, I think half of the income? Anyway I decided to make some and send them in! You had to make about 40, which is A LOT! :o It took me forever! :D Then I just had to wait for it to get approved! AND IT DID OMG! I really hope someone out there will like them enough to want to use them for their own! :3 I can only imagine how awesome that would be! So ofc I had to share my excitement with you all! :D Yay fluffy chickens!!

Here’s the link to my “fluffy chickens” stickers in their store: https://store.line.me/stickershop/product/1166182/en

I would love to know what you think of them!! :D

Bye!!

My HEMA handmade Stamps!

Hey there!

In my last video & blogpost I shared with you some of the things I bought at HEMA and a craft store! One of the things was the DIY Stamp set! So of course I would love to share with you the stamps I made! :D Here’s a picture!

IMG_0969
I made these stamps out of 2 rubbers! I started with the tag one! :D I thought it would be fun to have a tag stamp to use for journaling, snailmail & more! I have to say , it was quite tricky at first! (also since I’m not a perfectionist) With the leftover from that ruber I also carved a “Tape stamp”! With the other rubber I carved a big cat and a little flag stamp! The stamp and tape stamp would definitely be fun to use in different colors! :D I didn’t want to throw away leftover rubber, therefore I carved those small ones too!

Making my own stamps was a lot of fun! :D Although I did hurt myself in the process.. :p (suprise, suprise)! I would definitely recommend you try out this DIY stamp set! It’s so much fun! I would love to see what kind of stamps you all make! ;) Well, that concludes this little stamp making update! You will definitely see me using these in the future, and probably making more! Have a great weekend! :D

Ps: That cute card set giveaway is still going on! Check out the post about it here: https://jumpyjess.wordpress.com/2015/07/15/craft-store-hema-haul-giveaway/
