^ This envelope from Min was so fabulous that even the postman commented that he liked it when he handed it to me. It contained a note written on quite hilarious Brad Pitt stationery and a scratch 'n' sniff birthday card that smells like bubblegum! So good! Delightful mail.
^ A very sweet birthday postcard from Faiza.
^ This inconspicuous envelope delivered me quite the birthday gift...
^ I'd been coveting those Small Object stickers for many months! Oh man, so so good Elissa! I feel ridiculously spoiled. The card and paper she included, and her wrapping, were superb!
^ Another package arrived on the same day (again, inspected by quarantine!) from my lovely penpal Lila in Poland. It contained a very pretty red necklace (red owns my life), a beautiful handmade card and another great letter.
If only I could get my outgoing letter count to match my incoming!
^ A long overdue letter to Sirpa.
^ I made this envelope some time ago by using a scan of an old photobooth picture of a friend and I and printing out a collage of them. Then, the fun bit, I soaked it in coffee to give it a fun colour. It still smells of it, I hope Tejal doesn't mind!
Remember, long ago, when I showed you the 'envaccordion' I made for Missive Maven?... well, I only sent it this week! It took me a long time to fill that thing up! So here it is, all taped up and ready to go. I had to put twice as much postage on as it's not exactly a conventional letter;
I've been so tired this week, these early uni starts have lost their novelty. I'm dreaming of more sleep! Tonight I'm meant to be heading back to uni to attend something called the 'Design Smackdown' which should be interesting! Considering joining the 'Design Club' to mingle with the creatives. I would also like to go to Look Hear, The Lass O'Gowrie Hotel and the Hamilton Station Hotel tonight, but I had to pick just one. Boo.
Did you know that today is Ada Lovelace day? From the site;
Listening to: I Know It's Over by Jeff Buckley
Ada Lovelace Day is an international day of blogging (videologging, podcasting, comic drawing etc.!) to draw attention to the achievements of women in technology and science.
Women’s contributions often go unacknowledged, their innovations seldom mentioned, their faces rarely recognised. We want you to tell the world about these unsung heroines, whatever they do. It doesn’t matter how new or old your blog is, what gender you are, what language you blog in, or what you normally blog about – everyone is invited.
Who was Ada Lovelace? Ada Lovelace was one of the world’s first computer programmers, and one of the first people to see computers as more than just a machine for doing sums. She wrote programmes for Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine, a general-purpose computing machine, despite the fact that it was never built. She also wrote the very first description of a computer and of software.

PS. I got too far behind on the list, so in my usual style I'm giving up! Haha. Sylvia is still going strong however!
