3 things

Hi guys! Are you having a nice week? I hope so! Mine started with heavy rain, but today it was sunny and warm, so I went shopping for the last Christmas presents I still needed.
Anyway, these are three things I've done lately:
1. My boyfriend and I went to our favourite Japanese restaurant and had a lovely dinner of ramen, yakisoba and sushi <3

smash monday?

Hi guys! I know, Sunday's just passed, but it's been quite a while since I last showed you some of my pages in the smashbook, so why not take this empty Monday afternoon to do so?
These are the pages I made after Florence's concert, and I promise I'll try not to dwell on it too much..

Christmas mail~

Hi guys! The past few weeks have been a little bit sad in terms of mail as I found out that a lot of the Christmas cards I sent out quite a while ago haven't arrived yet to their recipient and by all chances got lost. Also, some of my penpals messaged me to ask me if I received their parcels/letters and still, by all chances those also got lost somewhere.
I was feeling really bitter for that, hence the lack of updates, but anyway that's a risk that us snailmailers must be prepared to take, right?
So without further ado, I'll show you what I've received and sent lately!

I got three postcards from: Amit, Kaira and Penny, respectively from India, Indonesia and Brasil.
 I love how colourful they all are! Not to mention the stamps..

Are you looking for a penpal? III

Guys! I'm really excited today to post an ad of one of my own penpals: Kelly!

My name is Kelly and am a 22 year old hair stylist living in Chicago.

I am looking for pen pals from all over the world that are near my age. :D

Some things I like to do are reading, watching movies, playing video games, taking photographs, and hanging out with my cats.

festive friday III

I NO LONGER POST ON THIS BLOG, PLEASE TAKE A LOOK AT MY NEW ONE!

Well hello guys! Happy weekend, how are you?
Is the Christmas spirit all over you already? My family will decorate the tree tomorrow, so for now the closest I've gotten to Christmas is through ALL the pictures that everyone's posting on Instagram of their trees, stockings, garden decorations and all that jazz, plus the lighting's they put in the streets of my town, of course!
Anyway, for you who are more festive than me, here the freebies for this week:

As usual, let me know if you like them and don't forget to check out the other "festive fridays" if you haven't already: here and here.
I also want to apologise as I dont' know what I've messed up in the code of the theme, but nothing is working as it should (like the tags, or the comments!) but I'll try to fix it as soon as I can!

Have a lovely day,
ƒ.

3 things

Hi guys! How are you? How's December so far? Here it's been freezing cold and we had a storm every other day, which led to flooding that caused roads collapses - crazy stuff. On the other hand, the Christmas spirit is beginning to be felt as all the shops decorated their windows, the streets have been embellished with themed lighting etc and I'm already racking my brain to sort out the Christmas presents for my family but I'm sure I'll end up buying most of them on the 24th as usual :(

Anyway here's what I've been doing lately:


1. I've been giving another go to digital painting, trying to reproduce that sketch I did last night. This is what I've done so far, but there's still a looot more to do. (I don't know if you can tell but the first frame of the gif is just so so bad, lol).

it's time for some mail!

Hi guys! Let me start off by saying thank you to all of you who still stick around despite my lack of mail-related updates. I'm super lazy and forgetful and it's a deadly comb; But anyway, today's the day I finally update you all on my mail :)
Let's begin!
Have you ever cried while reading a letter? I mean tears of joy. I did, a couple of times, but this one time was the best. My friend Khris from Spain, sent me a letter (well, actually letters - 5 of them!) and I swear I wish you could all read them because what she wrote, and how she wrote it.. is freaking pure bliss.


On a side note, she also sent me some delicious tea that made my reading even more lovely, and some music themed stickers to wish me to have a great time at the concert :')
Then I got mail from Nastya in Russia, who sent me a wonderful pic of her hometown:
