Just want to share here some of my resent outgoings. I used my own printables a lot this time and also tried to add some creativity to ready envelopes. I hope my ideas will help you with holiday mail decorations.























All of these printable sets you can find in my shop.

This autumn brings good weather, clear skies, bright sunshine. From the first days of September I have been collecting colored leaves, putting them in books and adding to photos. Red and yellow leaves have been living on my table for last month.









I found a garland in my closet, prepared candles. All of my photographs are accompanied by lights during the cold times. I like this warm light, looks like a little magic happened among a pile of papers and words.









My husband brought me a bouquet of incredible beauty in mid-September. The branches of cedar, spruce, plum and wild grapes are in combination with flowers of aster and a delicious smell.
















Inspiration is everywhere, you just have to catch it, handle it carefully and do not forget what Picasso said "Inspiration exists, but it should catch you at work."

Suddenly I realized that I didn't show summer letters here, but it's already September. However, it's a good reason to summarize.

Everyone have these moments, when you are sitting behind the empty sheet of paper and don’t know what to write. There is no inspiration, nothing interesting happens, what to tell about then? Here are some ideas to help you.

1. The last book (or film). No need to retell the plot, your friend would be happy to know what thoughts did you get after reading. What did you like in this book or what didn’t. Which of heroes is your favourite. Which of situations of this book is close to your life? How would you act in the place of the heroes. Continue the thought and you wouldn’t notice how you would finish three-four pages.

2. The travel. What can be considered a journey? - The trip abroad or to a neighboring city, to your granny’s country house? Anything! The main thing is how you will present it. It’s not necessarily to tell about the most recent trip, tell about the most remarkable. For example, in summer 2014 you were in the camp and now you suddenly remembered about it, because it's also summer, and again you want to be there. Or maybe you don’t want to be there and you are glad to be at home. Tell your friend - why?

3. Fantasize. Where would you dream to be now? In what city, country, magical world? Why? Maybe you would like to have an unusual ability? A lot of money? To enjoy privacy? All this is a great opportunity for an interesting conversation.

4. Weather. A trivial topic, I agree, but I tell all my paper friends about the weather. Not about the specific day of writing a letter, but about the whole season. The weather affects how I spend my time, how I dress, my mood. And if you and your friend are living in different areas it will be always interesting how the whether goes in so different places.

5. About snail mail. Yes, this is recursion, but I often ask my penpals what they get from the snail mail. Do they have any relation to it, whether they feel close to their penpals. Tell a friend how you generally feel about this process, what you think about snail mail, how much it coincided with your expectations.

Some time ago we (me and The Bird) saw this photo, which tells about a postcard swap between two cats and decided to try to make something like this.





I and Lala made the first postcard, using the watercolors to make a pawprint of Lala's write paw. And the answer was not long in coming ^^ We've got this admirable postcard made of Eshka's paws scan.
The first photo report is here.
To be continued..

Sometimes I make orders on Aliexpress, and I know how it is difficult to make a decision. I made this article to show you some links I really tried, and I will add my own comments for every product. And you could see the unpacking process in my insta-stories.

Envelopes with a deer, 10 pieces http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/EIaauBa
Beautiful and minimalistic. They was a little crumbles, but I still can use them.

Mini notebooks, 4 pieces http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/EAuNz3v
Very beautiful covers, paper inside is not the best, but they are small and you can take them everywhere.

Vintage stamp-stickers 96 pieces (6x16) http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/JQjMrfQ
My favourite product. I love to use them in envelope and postcard decorations.

Cute cat stickers, 3 boxes (120 pieces) http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/jMR3niY
Adorable, high quality, just in love with them.

Paper tapes, 5 pieces http://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/2b6YfiM
Not really sticky, but I love their delicate colors. Probably I will use them for my planner.

The parcel was sent quickly and without mistakes, every position was in separate plastic bag. I just advise the seller to put some cardboard in bag with envelopes, too keep their form.
