Happy Mail

I just love receiving mail, this started at a very young age. My grandmother you to send as cards and letters all the time. Whether its surprise mail, something I know is coming or even bills at the end of the month, i dont mind just as long as im getting mail!
So on Saturday I was super excited to collect 2 packages from the post office

I ordered stamps from Cariena at the scrapbook studio here and Shamela from Kanje Kraft’s here

I just love these lost and found stamps from my minds eye and I really battled to find the last two sets, luckily cariena was at my rescue.
Do your self a favor and check out the beautiful stamps that Shamela is selling.
I got great service from both these ladies.
I do most of my scrapbook shopping online as we don’t even have a craft store where I live let alone a scrapbook store. The closest one is 70 kilometers away from here.

I also found these pins and thread at the local material shop for unbelievable prices. The pins where R9.50 and the thread R8 for all of them. I’m not sure how I will use it yet, but I will find a way lol.

I also found these wire baskets to organize some of my stash.

Yeah for me i finally figured out how to do a nice and proper link! Next up a nice signature. Slowly but surely I'm getting the hang of blogging... one of these days i might actually think of myself as a true blogger!

Happy Valentines day, hope you all where spoiled rotten. '

One Little word for 2011

This post might have been more fitting for January, but I can’t believe how quickly January went! Unbelievable.
I have jumped on the bandwagon for OLW. After reading about it on most of the blogs.
My One Little word: Positive

Explicitly stated, stipulated, or expressed: a positive acceptance of the agreement.
Confident in opinion or assertion; fully assured: He is positive that he will win the contest.
Without relation to or comparison with other things; not relative or comparative; absolute.

emphasizing what is laudable, hopeful, or to the good; constructive: a positive attitude toward the future; positive things to say about a painting. .
Constructive and sure, rather than skeptical.

Showing or expressing approval or agreement; favourable: a positive reaction to the speech.
Something positive.
A positive quality or characteristic.

This layout is nothing fancy just a little something for my journal, just a little reminder to stay positive. The stamps are a from my minds eye, lost and found collection. I adore those stamps. J
So here is to positive thoughts.
Have a lovely day and thank you for stopping by
