Stamp adventures

A couple days ago my dad found all these fantastic stamps from Nepal that for some reason he still had and of course it made me super happy to get them. The ones in the middle seem to be part of a series of stamps about plants. There’s so much to see in all of them. IMG_3006

The Janosch stamp came out in 2013 and I found it in between my mums crafting stuff. Of course I asked her right away if I can have it. The Felix stamp is from this year and one of m favourites from this year. I loved the Felix books when I was younger. Do any of you know the ‘Letters from Felix’ books, it was always so much fun to open the individual letters in the books and see what the little rabbit was up to.

As promised here are the two letters I managed to write over the weekend. Although I didn’t manage to do everything I had planned for the weekend I did finish the most important things. These two letters will go to France and the USA today. For both envelopes I had some stamps left that fit the same theme, that always makes me very happy.

Happiness from the World

These two letters came to me within the last week (I think, unfortunately I’ve been a bit sloppy writing down the date of my incoming…ups) and will be replied to before this weekend is over! That’s the goal and it will be kept because the next two weeks are super busy and I won’t even be home for 9 of the 14 days. So I hope that I’m going to be able to finish one reply tonight while rewatching HP6 (its on TV so it doesn’t matter that I just watched it a week ago or so on DVD). The other reply will be written tomorrow and I plan to remember to take a photo of them before sending them off on monday 😉

These two cards were incomings from the official postcrossing, another awesome Alice in Wonderland card from Germany and a beautiful touristy card form France.

These two cards were incomings from the official postcrossing site. The wonderful Alice in Wonderland card came from Germany and the beautiful view card from France. Unfortunately I have to wait until December when I get paid to buy new stamps so no more postcrossing cards will be send until then. But I already decided on ordering lots of the Christmas stamps our post released this year and am quite excited to use them once that time comes 😉 IMG_2995

Current selfmade projects

I actually haven’t been able to be very crafty/creative in the last few weeks since I started working a casual job while I’m at home and I ended up working quite a bit (which is good, don’t get me wrong… I’m just super tired most days on my off days).

But I did finally finish my second ‘Hobbit’ Book cover painting that I made for myself. One day I’ll hopefully be able to put it up on a wall together with my other Middle Earth treasures 🙂

Since mid october I have also been working on a new crochting project. It’s a bit slow going at the moment, but I am halfway through my yarn so I’m getting there. In the end it’ll hopefully turn into a kind of cardigan like the one I saw over on JadeyBirdCrochet. Right now its more of children sized but thankfully it is not very cold yet so I still have time to get it done in time for winter to get here (or at least before winter is over).
