Getting mail makes happy! :)

Finally I had the time working on swaps again! :) I finished some swaps for pen pals, who were waiting for their snail mail for such a long time... Thank you so much for the patience! :)

This one was for Nina who has a lovely little blog. In her swap package I focused on little things embellished with selfmade stamps: mini tags, tags, stickers, envelopes...

The second smaller snail mail was for Elise. She's so fast in answering my mails. :) I haven't showed you what she's sent me yet, so here it is:

And this is the snail mail I arranged for her:

Wish you all a wonderful weekend! :) Enjoy it! ♥

Doing things I love again...:)

Hi everyone! :) :) After all the wedding excitement I started again doing things I love. :)

I finally had the time to take care of our plants...and tried to fight against spider mites ("Spinnmilben" in German). :( Any good advice? They infested two of our orchids and our siamcurcurma...:(

I continued crocheting the retro circle blanket. :)

I carved many stamps the last two weeks and I'm looking forward to showing them to you. :) Here is one of my new stamps: a tag stamp I like to use for snail mail. :)

Also, I finally started to put together swap packages for my pen pals. :) Three are ready to be shipped (details coming soon)! :D

I also wanted to show you a beautiful necklace dear Maggie from Kookooloores gave me as a wedding present...isn't it lovely? She makes these necklaces by herself! You have to check out her shop (DaWanda or Etsy), her necklaces are so beautiful! :D Thank you so much again!!!

I guess some of you are waiting for wedding pictures and I promise, I will show them soon. :) Unfortunatelly, I still had no time to look through the pictures and choose the ones I would like to show you..but I will... :)
Wish you all a lovely week! :)

I made it 12 months!

Dear lovely readers,
unfortunatelly I missed my blog birthday on Sep 4th. :( Taking a break from all the busy days before and right after the wedding and finally enjoying normal life together as newly-weds, I missed it... But nevertheless, I'm happy to announce that I made it ONE year! Yay! :D I can't believe it's already been 12 months I jumped into the wonderful world of blogging. :)

Looking back, I reeeeeeeaaaally enjoyed it. Sure, after getting engaged and after the wedding preparations started to get really busy, I unfortunatelly hadn't much time for blogging...but still... :) I'm very happy how much fun I had developing my little blog and how I managed to do creative things the entire year! Besides, it was so wonderful getting to know people all around the world over this little blog! :)

I'm also very happy about my small number of readers. Thank you so so much! Your comments and your feedback were great and helped me to continue!! :)

So, I'm very excited to be back, even though for just a couple of weeks, as we plan to FINALLY go on our honeymoon in November!!! In the next weeks I will show you all the details of our self-made wedding decoration and of course a couple of pictures from the wedding too. :)

By the way, my wedding invitations were featured in Katjas wonderful wedding blog: Fraeulein-k-sagt-ja. During the wedding preparations her blog was one of my favourite, as she always posts such beautiful wedding ideas! :) Thank you so much for the nice meeting and the beautiful pictures you took!
I'm also working on another feature of my invitations with much more details about the making-of, coming soon. :)

I'm looking forward to blogging again, even though it's just a little break from my big wedding break. ;)
And @all my swap partners: I already started your swaps and pretty soon you'll receive something nice in your mailbox! :D

Wish you all a lovely day! ♥
