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!

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!

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!

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!

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)

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!

DIY Happy Easter card!

IMG_0470

Hey there!

You must be thinking, “Jessica, are you posting 2 times a day now?”. Nope, it’s a coincidence! And there is only one explanation! I actually forgot to post my DIY easter card, and it would be silly to wait till After Easter right? I normally don’t forget these kind of things though. BUT this week was the game release of “Mario Party 10”, which my and my boyfriend waited for , for months! We might’ve played non-stop? (It’s SOOO MUCH FUN) It’s a game mostly based on luck, and then some skill in minigames. The only sad thing about it is… “I have the WORST luck!” We played hours in a row (the number might scare you :p), and I didn’t win once. It seems impossible. :'( Anyway!

NOW FOR THE DIY!

Here’s the materials you’ll need: Scissors, fork, cute scrapbookpaper, ribbon, glue, clear nailpolish, a pen and white paper!

  1. Make or fold your white card base (whatever size you like!)
  2. cut out some small eggs, whatever size and number.
  3. Glue the paper eggs on the white card front.
  4. Make some cute ribbon bows using a fork! I actually found this technique on pinterest! :o Check it here: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/325455510546877272/
  5. Glue the bows on top of the paper eggs (I used crafting glue).

  1. Finish it with a “Happy easter sentence”!
  2. DONE!

It is very simple to make! I had a lot of fun making them! ;) Tell me what you think about it!

HAPPY EASTER EVERYBODY! :D

Now for the other mail! Here’s a picture of the letter my penpal, “Trisha” sent me! She decorated it so pretty! Love the curly design and colors! She even put a little quote in the middle that says:

The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
The more places you’ll go.

-Dr Seuss

It’s such a nice quote! Inside was the letter ofc! Which I had a lot of fun reading! :) Then up to the last of my snailmail!!
