I dropped this off this afternoon before work which I usually wait until Monday. Lately I have been forgetting my mail on my desk when rushing to work. So at least, I know that the mailman will pick these up on Monday. But it feels good to drop these off since some of these are very late.
Hoping for a new deco swapper~ I have been wanting to ask Melissa for a while if she wanted to swap with me. I hope to hear from her soon but I sent a few decos her way.
Another deco swap for Dee~ I owed her a swap and a letter. I have a few oversized decos to send her way next.
I wrote to Crystal on Thursday and worked on her swap on Friday. Another overdue swap but I am setting small goals for myself each week.
I will make another post but in this envelope is my handmade Valentine's Day card I make for Karen via a Decolicious swap.

I never did post this... I deco I signed last week or so.
It's a horror theme deco but I really didn't have much but a gaming magazine. I don't think I had ink at time. I still need to install that but I want to use up all these magazine first. They are just taking up space on the shelf.
I am a little behind on posting my mail this week. I had a nice day off yesterday with my boyfriend. We just painted all day without going near the PC or even turning on a gaming console. So I will post what I can for now that I have uploaded. I still have a lot more pictures to resize and upload.
I haven't heard from Kyle in a while so it was nice to get a letter from him. His envelope was so bulky and full of goodies.
This is the back of it. I really like the paper he used.
I also got a card from Nikki that was really cute. I found a package I made for her last week that should of been mailed ages ago. I thought I had mailed it out too. I hate being not so organized. I love her addy label~! Too cute.

Finally able to mail out some swaps, well... My boyfriend was kind enough to do so since I was running late for work. It was also raining pretty hard. I joined a sticker swap via Decolicious a Facebook group but I will make a post later after Lucy gets my swap.
I decided to make a list of swappers who don't mind getting small swaps every now and then. I want to keep only one box of decos and mail them out as soon as I sign them. I also want to pass on the ones I cannot deco due to not having enough time or ink. Well, Kim is on my list which I need to add more swappers. Hint, hint... No need to send a swap back to me each time either.
I sent her smaller decos including one I made. I had to pass on the parrot one though.

This is what I bought on my first break... I wanted a small notebook to keep track of my mail & swaps that I can carry with me. I already have a journal but I don't like to carry it with me all the time. So this red memo book will do and hopefully keep me organized. I tend to forget a lot things too and I need to jot them down right away. Cause who knows how long it will take for me to remember. I know I don't need any more pens but these where cheap and oh so colorful.

I dropped off this letter to Mandy before work~ I got to use some recent stamps I bought on her envie and stationery. I found one of my old labels too which is one of my favorites. I need to make more for myself. I hope this letter reaches Mandy in RI real soon.
Sunday is here and here I am sitting here at Subway waiting. I found an app that is just what I have been looking for. It is called PicsArt and it pretty much combines some of favorite apps. Now I don't have to run to my PC to blog because I want to resize a photo. I like the collage option too which is perfect for gathering my favorite mail pictures of the week each Sunday. I am hoping that will keep me motivated to blog daily and keep up with my mail too.
I also want to thank you all who commented on my blog this week. I really appreciate it and I wish there was a better way to reply. I guess I am used to Livejournal... But I will try to get all caught up comment-wise real soon. Thank you.

Here one of five decos I made for myself in my last deco session. I used the Studio G products I bought and some ribbon too. I also used Elmer's glue dot puncher for the first time with decos. I am happy with it but I still had to use tacky glue for the ribbon. But not using a glue stick was nice. I added some HK stickers too it too.

So I tried out my new deco supplies and spent serveral hours deco'ing. I'll post scans later since I am feeling a little tired tonight. I am trying to use up what I buy and deco at least once a week. I have a few supplies at my writing desk but I don't want it to get too messy. But I like to keep some things handy for mail art or for that rare deco moment.
Here are three of the decos I made today. The other one isn't quite ready but I may finish it tomorrow.

I bought a few things today while I was out. The Walmart here in town had changed their Studio G section and I grabbed a few goodies. Mostly acrylic stamps that had cupcakes on it. I bought some ink, ribbon, and paper too.
At Michael's I bought more ribbon, an edge punch and couple of rubber stamps. I hope to get deco'ing soon since I never did get a chance to. I wanted to keep my acrylic stamps in CD cases but they only had the slim kind at Wal-Mart. I need the regular kind so I can pull them apart. I keep them in a photo album but it is getting to bulky.
My first trip to the post office this year. I am going to try to make to the post office at least once a month. There was no line either which is nice. I bought the last book of pixar stamps too!
But I mailed out some excess decos to Dee and Sheri. Also a regular swap to Veronica.

I am so happy to be mailing out a letter today. My first in 2012! Jessica, I hope this letter arrives quickly.
I used a penguin gift bag for an envelope.i sealed it with clear & snowflake tape. I also used one of the avery mailing labels and my alpha stamps. I included a mini zine I made from my sketchbook scans. Oh and a couple of decos.

I answered my first letter of 2012!
Today I sat at my writing desk listening to Placebo while dinner was in the oven. I wrote 5 pages too. It feels good to be writing again. I am determined to write at least three letters a week.
Yeska your letter will be mailed tomorrow.

I set up an old desk just for writing letters. I hope to keep this clutter free but at least I have some help from my cat. Chaser is good at knocking stuff down while he tries to nap. All I need is a comfy share but I will make do with what I have. If I wasn't so tired, I would write a letter.
Happy New Year!
