Hey everyone! I know I have been neglecting the blog but...my boyfriend and I have been in Vegas! I'll do a separate post on that but I'm glad to say we survived - even though my boyfriend came back with an upper respiratory infection. Ouch. More on that later, though, because it's Secret Pen Pal Scavenger Hunt Reveal Day!
I had a wonderful art blogged named Lorraine (who you can find here) and she is insanely talented! Here's the spread I sent to her:
Check out more after the ol' jump!
1: The full spread // 2: A gift for her - she has a quote from the movie Serendipity on her blog so I felt like I'd write it out all pretty on a blank canvas for her so she can decorate it however she'd like. Her journal pages are AMAZING // 3: Bad Day Survival Kit - teas, heart confetti and art journaling supplies // 4: City Explorer's Kit: Marietta Edition - I took some Instax Minis of landmarks around my new digs // 5: Something Monogrammed - since she had posted about Pysankas on her Instagram so I decided I'd attempt it for her but I couldn't find a nice egg shape so I just made a little one on a small piece of watercolor paper // 6: Something Oddly-shaped - some cogs, watches and watch hands for her art journaling // 7: Something that Represents Me - Creepy Hearts Club hearts, my favorite Mother Teresa quote, a handmade snail mail pin, an Evil Eye bracelet and some cute stickers!
I hope she likes it as much as I had fun assembling it!
And now for what I received! The package I received was from a wonderful Instagrammer named Melina!
Here's my new P.O. Box address!
I freaked when I saw the brush pen! I had been looking at getting one or two and trying my hand at brush lettering. Melina was in my brain! :)
Melina is from Houston, Texas so seeing all these wonderful Texas-related items was so awesome! I freaked out over the Texas map because...I want to visit Texas! It's perfect!
I loved this tiny easel with 3 tiny canvases! Perfect for practicing more monograms (in the style at the bottom of this post)!
Cute monogrammed items!
Super cute pencil case with Melina's own pompoms! Check them out here!
Such a cute little book about love!
Something that represents her: a pompom, weekly list, cute pink things (!!), a golden unicorn (!!), a cupcake eraser, the cutest lipstick pen, and the perler bead mushroom from Super Mario Bros! So cute!
I had an absolute blast putting together my package and receiving all these cute goodies! Thanks to Fab for hosting this again! I'm so happy I was able to participate again! I can't wait to see what everyone else sent and received!
I hope you're having a great weekend!
