Happy Mail, Junk journal

Amazing happy mail from Libby

Amazing happy mail from a lovely lady in America who has bought three of my journals.

She is one of my biggest supporters and her happy mail left me in shock.

I had tears in my eyes opening each package. So overwhelmed by her generosity and support.

I loved it all and wanted to include so much in my personal journal, so, I dedicated four pages to this happy mail:

I had fun decorating the pages by collaging my favourite items.

So thankful and blown away. Nothing can express my gratitude.

Here’s a video of the unboxing:

More happy mail from two lovely ladies

I was amazed to get all these lovely fibres from Sue. She already sent me a package that was massive. Love the vibrant colours. I’m thinking boho, mermaid, and forest journals are in the making with these.

Then the lovely Tonia sent me these amazing trims:

So excited to make pockets with them and do some sewing with them.

Happy mail from Andrea

Thank you so much to Andrea for sending a lovely happy mail that I could use to decorate this middle page of my 2018 journal.

Here’s the package she sent me:

I especially love the lace and have already used some of it to decorate the spines of some of my journals.

And she sent me my first piece of cheesecloth. I’m so excited because I’ve been wanting some. I’d love to be able to sew it and making collages with it when I’m more confident with the sewing machine.

More happy mail from Sweden

Got this beautiful package from the lovely Marit.

She wanted to send me the horses, but I didn’t realise she was sending everything else.

I love the journaling cards and tags that are backed on coffee-dyed paper.

She got this package so right with the blue birds, blue butterflies, and peacocks.

Will definitely have fun using them in journals.

Happy mail from Christa at 2nd Chance Creations

I’m so blown away by this happy mail from Christa.

I wasn’t feeling well the day I got it, but when I got home from work and saw the package with the happy mail sticker, I couldn’t help but smile.

She reached out to me after seeing some of my YouTube videos where I mentioned how it was hard to get supplies in the small country town where I live. She said she’d send me some napkins, lace, and fabric.

I thought she’d just send a few bits of each but she gave me a massive package! It was full of so much lace that I absolutely adore. Plus the napkins, fabric, and so much more. Wow!

I’m so thankful for her generosity, and just love the amazing group of fellow junk journalers I’ve found. And look at how much blue she included! She definitely knows my favourite colour.

Here’s the spread I did dedicated to Christa’s happy mail in my 2018 journal:

Here’s a video of me opening the happy mail but beware of massive excitement:

A thank you gift for Kathy

I’m sending this little bit of happy mail to one of the ladies who helped me come up with a business name.

She suggested Blue Willow and even shared a picture for inspiration. I loved the name but it’s actually the name of a type of pattern, so I didn’t want anyone to be confused with that.

I wanted to thank Kathy anyway since I would have taken that name otherwise.

She said she liked flamingoes so I went for a pink theme and included a few flamingo images.

Hope she likes it.

Next happy mail sent to South Africa

Slowly ticking off the countries I’m doing happy mail swaps to.

So far I’ve done Australia, USA, Germany, Sweden, UK, the Netherlands, and now South Africa.

I’m thinking I’d love to get a stamp and a postcard from each country too.

It’s so fun!

Do you do snail mail swaps or have pen pals?

Received this happy mail from the Netherlands

Yay, so excited to get this happy mail full of supplies for junk journaling.

I love knowing a package is coming and the anticipation of it arriving at my house. And I get so excited about opening it. It really does make me happy. I love the surprise and that it’s an exchange rather than buying a mystery box.

I love the blue butterfly fabric and the Dutch lace the most.
