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."

This year I decided to try myself in the Inctober, but I don’t use the oficial task list and started with ten days of botanical drawings. It is interesting experience to make new drawing every day.









My works turned into printable sticker sheet. You can buy my printables in my Tictail shop.

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

It would seem that everything I do, I do firstly for myself and my pen pals. And commonly it’s true. Making letters and photos of them is the aesthetic space of my soul. I love when it's beautiful, tidy, interesting, cute .. but that's not all. It is important for me to make what others will like. My entire life is connected with art, and this forms certain needs - the needs for viewers and the audience's approval of the results of my work. Such a bitter truth.
As I receive less feedback on my work, I have less motivation to do anything. Letters are lying without answers for months and accumulate like a snowball. It‘s oppressive. There are quite a lot of pressing factors in my life these days, and creativity should become a way to release emotions - not to become yet another reason to close myself off.
I think this problem has affected not only me. Similar thoughts are read between the lines of many illustrators, photographers, handmade craftsmen, bloggers of aesthetic directions. We are lost. Do we need our viewers? Maybe something went wrong, maybe you are busy or have lost interest? How to move on? Where to find strength?
I want to say that it is very important to support each other. In the age of monopolization, it is difficult for small people to break through, but it is possible. It's quite easy to help. Just give a minute, press the heart or make a repost, leave a review for the received order or free material.
There are those who have stayed with me for a long time, and I remember many accounts who supported me and participated in giveaways and SFS. I want to tell them many thanks for the attention they give me.
And thank you, for reading this text.
Share your inspiration with your friends and support your favorite authors - they really need it. Bloggers make blogs not only for themselves, but also for the viewer; do not forget this.

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.
