Incoming / Outgoing Mail + SPSH2015!
That's right! Fab is back at it again with the Secret Pen Pal Scavenger Hunt 2015! Have you signed up yet?! I did and I can't wait to participate again!
Isn't this the cutest?! My friend Rachel sent me the prettiest scalloped heart valentine! I started assembling some valentines to send out but, once again, I'm behind. Story of my life lol. It also didn't help that I was terribly sick last week...
Here is the prettiest mail from my friend Kathleen! I always love getting her letters. They make me so happy! And she has the prettiest calligraphy :)
I signed up for Veronica Varlow's International Valentine Exchange and I went on a Googling spree for the name that I drew. I hope I Googled the right person because I dragged my BF on an extreme Steam Punk hunting expedition looking for anything and everything Steam Punk for my recipient - based on what my Google searches told me. The result was the gears and sprockets necklace above plus a few other things. The "Hello Valentine" watercolor was based on this piece from Alexis at Persia Lou. I love it! I used Lindsey's method for watercolor jewels to get my lines all pretty. I hope she likes it!
My friends and I took a break from playing my new favorite card game to get creative. The result: a marbled clay ring dish for my new apartment! I haven't had much experience with bake clay (not sure if this was Fimo...) but B coached me through it and helped me get this pretty marbled result. I love it!
How has February been treating you?
