The Lucky Dip - Joelles Emporium

Where to go? Joelles Emporium

What does it cost? £1,50+ plus shipping

What's it all about?
Here I have a huge selection of my art/sketches/illustrations available as custom stickers! Some completely exclusive and not found anywhere else - I have a lot more available designs than pictured. You will either receive a random selection of 10 stickers or 5. The stickers vary in size but the largest ones are around 4x4".

I've always been fond of using stickers to spruce up letters or even to hide scratches on the front of a shelf. Here I couldn't resist the lovely drawings and the obvious surprise factor always lures me in anyway. I am really pleased with the variety of stickers in my two grab bags, coming in all different shapes and sizes, with designs that range from cute to enchanting, making it a great way of discovering the artist behind them. Not just perfect for personalizing cards, some will be used in my plans to dabble with journaling too. A lucky glue-tastic dip!

Personal Favorite? Eyes in Blue (left side, middle)

Are stickers something you generally like to use? If so, what are your preferred places to put them on? And would you agree that they lend a nice touch on cards or in DIY projects?

Adventures in Postcrossing #2

The goal of Postcrossing is to connect the world via real mail, by allowing you to exchange postcards with other random members around the world.

Let it be said that getting back to Postcrossing has been one of the best decisions I recently made. Why? Happy mailbox equals a happy me! I stocked up on postcards and stamps. I bookmarked pages with quotes on writing letters and sending mail. I even established a pattern, or maybe you could call it a schedule, because there's no harm in a bit of a routine. Sunday is now my dedicated Postcrossing day when I will request new addresses in the afternoon, sip some hot tea while thinking about brilliant things to write on the cards, and sending them on their merry way on Monday morning. Depending on how many of my previously sent postcards got registered during the week I usually send out between three and five new cards each week. On the receiving end it has been a bit more quiet than last month, then again some countries still use donkeys to transport mail, so it might take a bit longer for them to arrive or, as a wonderful alternative, they are being shipped in from far off exotic lands like, say, Christmas Island. 

And it's time to take a look at the postcards that sat in my mailbox this past month. They rolled in from Belarus, Germany, India, Russia, Spain, and the USA. So, obviously, the first place in the category "far-off and exotic lands" goes to India and extra bonus points for *let me take a deep breath* the motive showing Mount Everest. I mean, how cool is that? Though my personal favorite is, without a doubt, the vintage Disney World card. *sigh*

Have you heard about Postcrossing before? Or maybe you already are a happy Postcrosser? Let me know!
