Matchbox drawer fame!

Thanks so much Tarah for telling me that my kawaii matchbox drawer was mentioned in the Swap-bot blog! I also read that blog but hadn't noticed it.

Anyway, that was my first matchbox drawer and I have only made one more since then. It's hard to get them really good and sturdy. But they sure do look cute! Do you guys make them?

Easter surprise!

image Thanks so much Ingrid for the lovely card! I have been so busy lately with everything going on my life I didn’t send a single easter greeting this year. This really made my day happier!

You know you've got friends ...

when you come home to some happy mail :o)

First of all, thank you Em for letting me participate in this brand new blogging project. I think it's an awesome way of showing the world how priviledged I am to be able to count you girls among my friends. :o)

Our exchanges of "happy mail" are sometimes part of a more or less formal swap, but quite often I open my mailbox to find a totally unexpected package, sent with the sole intention of making me smile. These RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) can be anything from a postcard that made the sender think of me, over some edibles I am known to crave (sour skittles !! :o)), to some craft supplies to try out a new creative expression.

And this is what I came home to on Monday : an adorable inchie book and a tutorial kit on how to make them. These lovely items were sent to me by Lisa, who in our little group of friends is renowed for her gorgeous inchies. She knows I am a fan of the inchies and inchie books that leave her skillful hands, and by sending me this tutorial as a RAK, she is nudging me to give them a try. And isn't that what friends are for : making you venture outside the box and opening your eyes to a whole new world of possibilities?

In my Etsy faves right now...


I only just created this blog and it's coming to life as I write. My name is Em and I got the idea to make a blog for me and some friends I have gotten to know very well these past years! Friends I can't see everyday cause we live all over the world but they mean a great deal to me. We keep in touch on the internet but we also send each other happy surprises in the mail sometimes - those are always the highlight of my day!

I'm hoping some of my friends want to blog here too, so you can all read about our creative adventures. I will promise you photos, crafts, swaps, etsy love and all kinds of other fun. So why not stick around? This might be a good one!

A different type of egg...

Different kind of easter egg!

I sent this to my good friend Nicole! It travelled from Sweden to Germany.
