Monday Mail

Somehow I feel like every time I get a few minutes to write this blog, it's always Monday. And I can't, obviously, not do a Monday mail post, so here we go again.

Before we get into the mail part though, let me tell you that I have a bunch of ideas I want to write about! Like tons. And a whole load of tutorials too. I just haven't figured out how to fit writing into my new routine. I'm also more inspired than I have been in a long time about my shop and new products, so that's taking up a bunch of time as well.

Now, this isn't really one of those so-sorry-I-haven't-blogged-shame-on-me - kind of posts. I am learning still and I acknowledge that. This is more of a hey-got-any-ideas-how-to-orgnize-my-time-better - kind of posts. Or perhaps just helping me to try sorting all this out. I guess it's just time to really look into everything I do in a day and figure out where to carve out more time for things I like doing. Organize and prioritize. How very September-ish, no?

All in all, it's been a great week, the weekend was fantastical. We took an imprompu vacation, which helped start the let's get organized mindset again. More on that and many more topics, once I figure out how to make time for it!

In the mean time, here's some mail:


Black and white Let's start with a black and white one. I think it started with the envelope and took off from there. I looked for black and white stamps, tape and decorations.

Like so often, you can see a peek of what's inside this letter on my Instagram. Follow me on Instagram to get more up to date photos and peeks on the insides of my letters and a bunch of other stuff: like the Batmobile, punny alpacas, crafting and so. much. food.

Ship's sails I feel like the next one is so colorful to counterbalance the previous one. The envelope is made out of a book page using the envelope templates (a tutorial on how to make one yourself is HERE, in case you haven't seen it yet).

How was your weekend? Do you have any good time-management tips for me?


  1. Hitto, testasin tehdä kirjekuoren sun tutorialsin avulla, mutta siitä tuli ihan vino! Voi toki johtua siitä, että mulla oli hirvee kiire enkä tehnyt kunnolla.. No shit.. Ja se oli eka! Mutta olen ainakin tehnyt mallin jo! SE oli se helppo osuus :D Practice makes perfect vai miten se nyt menikään?

    1. Joo, tuttu fiilis. Harjotuksella se lahtee sujumaan. Kylla mullakin aina valilla lahtee vahan kieroon noi kuoret. Se ei tarvitse kun taiteilla yks taitos vahan vinoon. Toisaalta riippuen materiaalista, se voi yleensa taitella uudelleenkin. Kylla se siita :D
