i am really loving my new address labels from Kumquat Designs. Michelle is amazing and so friendly to work with. (if any of you reading this is an artist, this label design was made to showcase your artwork-- which is just brilliant, isn't it? alas, i did not get my pappa's artistic genes, so i went with my favourite art work) If you need address labels, Michelle is seriously your girl! she's fast, friendly, and her work is always top rate.
^i am loving my christmas cards from all of you. see the deer in the middle? erin was so cute and wrote on the envelope, "ready to open the most perfect Micaela Christmas card?!?" she was exactly right!
^postcrossing from France (and the first one addressed to my married name)
^from Kristina in Slovenia, van gogh postcard from little Zac and the next one from his cousin Lucia (love her name AND the second question she asked me! ha) - Steph's little boy and niece (ADORABLE right?), lovely catch-up from Belen and Caiti.
^audrey postcrossing from Australia
^the sweetest christmas package from Carrie Marie. I just can't get enough of the italian vintage inspired journals, christmas tin or her thoughtful heart. She seriously outdid herself and made my day a happy one!!! xoxo
^hand made postcrossing from russia
i still have a lot of mail to reply to but i'm catching up!
^i giggled when i saw this ornament and immediately thought of claire and the worse beagle ever, their family dog Ignatius. isn't it the cutest!? i can't get over the glittery top hat.
^a reply home made postcrossing to Russia
^every year me and my bestie Marisa have always exchange ornaments. This year, i got her these vintage two turtle dove ornaments from Very Fine House (love kate's shop!) along with christmas scented soap.
^my old roommate Katy (who moved from TX to San Fran) wanted to join the ornament swap after the deadline and since i didn't have an odd person out, i told her we could swap! i got her this chalkboard ornie from caitiedidesign that even came with a piece of chalkboard (in the little star card). i packaged it in the coffee tin.
^reply to Gracie (can a girl ever have too many lip glosses?)
