It's definitely been a While!!!

Hello there everyone,

Well, my blog has well and truly been neglected! I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted!!!! Where does the time go?

I am still doing the same old thing - working, working and more working! I love my job at Crafter's Companion and I love demonstrating for the company too, but it leaves me with very little time for my own personal crafting (something I did worry about when I began this new chapter in my life). But just recently I have discovered something new to me and it has reignited my enthusiasm to play with my own crafty stash again.

During a spot of research and a nudge from my writer daughter, I discovered the world of 'snail mail'. There is a whole community out there who still send hand written letters (and goodies) to one another through the mail service. To say I have become hooked on this would be an understatement! I have found a few penpals in different countries who have similar interests to me and have begun writing to them (I have always loved hand writing and it is great to be able to put it to good use again).

Here are a couple of the things I have done so far:

My first package was for my daughter - I saw this idea on Pinterest and as she is a huge 'Alice in Wonderland' fan, I couldn't resist recreating it for her. Needless to say it was well received.

Then I ventured into the world of swaps and made my first flip book using two A5 envelopes:

I have now become addicted to washi tape and my collection has grown substantially! I've always had it in my stash, but never really used it much - so I'm really glad to have found a use for it in my flip books and swaps.

So, I have lots more things to show you but won't go on forever in this post. My aim is to be back soon with another glimpse into my world of craft.

Sending crafty hugs to you all,
Jan x
