I have been dreaming of letters and packages in the mail ever since I chatted with Autumn (of The Paper Couturiere) and Stephanie (of BubbleRock who also wrote our first guest post here!) about becoming pen pals the good ol’fashioned way ! Autumn also came up with a great idea called The HandWritten Brigade which you can read all about here. We are all in a bit of disgrace for not having sent out our letters yet but I know it will happen soon- so much hecticness and so little time! Anyway, I kinda veered off the topic, didn’t I?
Right.So I was saying- packages in the mail make me happy and who knew that one sunny afternoon I would actually receive a nicely packed (brown paper) package from Tracy Ruscansky who lives all the way in New Jersey? I mean I knew I would, but when I got it – I was SO excited, I had to refrain from tearing it apart so that I could get some photographs of it to share the excitement with all of you.
Many of you may be wondering how I came to receive this package. Wonder of wonders! I was lucky enough to win a give-away! I didn’t think I would EVER win a give-away and that to on Naomi’s blog! But I did! Naomi was celebrating her blogs anniversary and had many giveaways that week (I entered each of them!)- one of them being stationery designed by Tracy at Simply Stated Designs. Considering I love stationery and call myself a collector (the many diaries/pens/cards I have stashed away in my desk are a good example of this
obsession love I have for stationery! ) , this was the perfect thing to win!
The Hello Note Cards are so elegant, simple and PERFECT and I think I am going to have a really tough time actually using them.
And the happy camper who won these awesome cards!
Thank you Naomi and Tracy for making my day!!!
