Count The Days


^ Self portrait Sunday, wearing one of C's shirts.


^ C secretly ordered some of my postcards from Redbubble last week and they arrived a few days ago. I bought a corner rounder punch on eBay and rounded their edges. Love 'em! I just ordered a bunch to package up for Etsy. If you'd like one right now they're here - $2 for a postcard, $2.50 for a greeting card.


^ My mum picked me up on Friday and we drove to Dungog and on the way she bought me a mini globe of the world from Aldi - I have always wanted one. When I was a kid I asked my dad for a violin and a globe, I got the violin when I was seven, now I've got the globe :D Now every time I send a letter I'm gonna checkit on my globe.

I spent the weekend in Stroud and Dungog sorting out stuff I'd had in storage for years. I kept a very meagre box of old things and it felt sad to go through things from my childhood and throw them away, but there's only so much I can take to Tasmania and store, so decluttering was necessary. This time in one month I will be in Tasmania! I am feeling optimistic but sad about it. I am gonna miss you Newcastle!

I've taken a page out of Missive Maven's book and have started doing a count of my incoming and outgoing letterpile in the sidebar like so;




For the first time in a long time my outgoing exceeded my incoming - it felt good! :D I wrote most of them between the hours of midnight and 6am while watching World Cup matches!


^ Erika has been documenting her Memphis sojourn and sent me this cute little postcard.


^ A fabulous little letter from Alex in Addison. She included such lovely things.


^ This envelope contained the corner rounder I bought from eBay and I just loved all of the different stamps on it.


^ My Benevolent Postcard Society postcard for June. Cute!


^ Molly sent me an ADORABLE Socceroos themed envelope full of green and gold. It made me smile. Shame the Socceroos aren't doing so great!




^ A hand sewn envelope for Garci with love.


^ Some Fafi for lady Shona.


^ An Escher envelope for miss Charlotte Lucy.


^ A hello to Patty.


^ A map envelope for Greta in Lithuania.


^ A mix cd and a letter for Lila.


^ Months ago, one of our favourite Newcastle Jets (our local soccer team) players - the goal keeper Neil Young, was injured during a game and then spent months in hospital for a reaction to medication and I thought it would be fun to send him a Get Well card. Hope he likes it :D haha. Get well Neil Young! (he's the 'E' in get)

What did you get up to on the weekend? :)
