My Crafty Week : Happy Mail : Art Journalling

Last year I used to send lots of “happy mail” to various pen pals and one off swaps, I even had a Facebook group dedicated to swapping pocket letters and other forms of snail mail.

Unfortunately it kind of fissled out and I hadn’t sent any for a long time!

When Octobers Studio Calico Kits hit my doormat I really wanted to create something with it. It was so lovely.


At the same time I was having some problems with some equipment and another Etsy seller helped me out so I wanted to send her a small thank you, a TN book mark.

I had no idea how it would turn out, there are a few things I would do differently next time but overall I love how this turned out and was really pleased with it. The little envelope in the middle contains the gift and the flap at the side lifts up to reveal a note.

At the time I made this I said I’d love to send more, alas I’ve not gotten round to it… maybe once the house is sorted this weekend I’ll have another go!

Recently I took the kids pumpkin picking (you can tell how long it’s been since my last catch up!) I wanted to create a page in my art journal as well as a Project Life page. I’d seen some amazingly creative pages on YouTube and decided to have a go at drawing something myself.

I’m no artist but I do love to try and I am super happy with how this page turned out!!! Again it is something I am desperate to try again, I need to set aside some crafty time!!
