Happy Happy Mail Wednesday



I want to start off by announcing this will be my last Happy Mail Wednesday post. I have gotten a few (anonymous) comments that my posts look like I'm bragging and that's not at all what I set out to do or why I even post it. I will still be posting awesome Happy Mail I receive but it will be in other posts (more spread out) and not have one dedicated to just Happy Mail :( bummer.....

But at least Happy Mail Wednesday is going out with a bang!!!! I had a great week!!!! From the Happy Mail queen herself, Jamie :) She sent the cutest stuff, I can't even express how excited I was opening this Happy Mail up! Sock Panda, Panda embroidery (Oh em geeeee) she made, panda print I have been eyeing, my favorite candy all wrapped up in a cute bucket, lots of yummy goodness, panda sleep mask (I've been using every night), panda, pandas, Lisa Frank stickers (uh heck yea!!!), journal and cute gumball machine :) Thank you soooo much Jamie!!! You did AMAZING!!!! Love you!!! I will have a better pic of the embroidery in a few days, I'm retaking pics of my craft room since I redecorated it :)





I also got awesome Happy Mail from Jacque, another partner of mine, she sent me a ton of cute panda stuff too, stickers, plush, buttons, stamps, ribbon and cute rose petal soap! Thank you so much Jacque!!! And I know some of you are wondering if I ever get tired of panda stuff??? NO, every time I see something else panda I become just a tad more obsessed :) So thank you for adding to my obsession!!!



I also got lots of pen pal cards in this week too :) I love love love pen pal letters!!! Writing is so relaxing to me and helps me improve my handwriting :) hehe


My mom sent me some super cute stuff too, she always sends bi-weekly care packages :) I have this love for coffee mugs (only the cute ones) and mom surprised me with 2 super cute ones!! She also sent me some colorful binder rings and some old checks so I can make a scrapbook page out of them :) Thank you Momma, Love you!!!



I asked Debbie awhile back if she could doodle a panda and have it placed on a stamp for me, I just got it in and LOVE how it turned out. It reminds me of the old fashion stamps and the doodle is super cute!!!!! Thank you so much Debbie, I know it was a lot of work and I love it!!!



Tomorrow I will be back with 2 new plushies I made!!!!! They are so cute!!!!!! I'm actually thinking of sharing the pattern I made for one of them if they get a big enough response, Hello first DIY??? :)

xoxo,
Lindsay

  1. If anonymous commenters are ridiculous enough to comment on your happy mail, they need to mind their own business. This is your space, Lindsay. If they don't like it, they don't have to stop by. That pisses me off. Get a life, people. Geez. All I have to say is, ASDI and she better recognize. hahaha

    Looove the stamp that Debbie made! Who made that little panda card with the xoxo on it? That's super cute too! Love all the stickers Jacque sent you! She's such a sweetie!!! And is that a Dr. Suess drawing on an envelope??? That is freakin' adorable!!!!

    Happy Mail Rocks. So do you.

  2. How rude of people! First of all this is your blog and if they don't like what you post then get off. Right? I don't think of it as bragging. I hope you take a pic of your stuff and it to the flickr account. I love seeing every ones goodies. Gives me ideas and I am a little nosey--:D hee hee

    I can't get over all the cute cute panda things. My dd would love all the panda cuteness.
    I need to find some big coffee mugs like that.

    I can't wait for tomorrow!! I can't wait for tomorrow!! oh that is when you will receive my package of AWESOME goodies--:D I am bragging--:D

  4. You shouldn't change YOUR blog to suit others who don't have to balls to give their name on a rude comment. Keep your Happy Mail Wed., it's part of you and part of YOUR blog. You shouldn't feel guilty for being happy and sharing it with everyone. Good luck and don't let mean people get you down!

  5. Aw Linds!!! Don't let ANYONE make you feel like you cant post something on YOUR blog! I mean really?! Why would they go to the effort of being nosy & wanting to read your page & then complaining...that's just rude & you totally don't need that & you're much better than that. I mean that in all sincerity & love. You have an awesome blog & it's yours...not theirs. So if they see something they don't like they can leave. My favorite thing about your Happy Mail posts is that they're sooooo so happy! & why o why would they want to ruin your happiness. They need to eff off before I go buck wild. (sorry the ghetto in me comes out...haha!) Love you Linds!

  6. Do not let people influence your blog girl! I love reading about your happy mail posts! You deserve bragging rights to all the lovely stuff. Isn't that why we are part of happy mail in the first place? It makes up happy to receive random stuff from other people who take the time to gather it for us. Don't change it. Those who know you love your posts girlie! Keep it up!

  13. Don't let any haters get you down! They are just jealous! I am a newcomer to your blog and I love it! I think it is cool seeing all of the happy mail goodies! : )

  14. Hey there! I started reading your blog about a couple of days ago due to a mutual friendship with Jacque...she brings so much happy into my life and is a great new friend! Anyway, I am leaving a comment to show the same feeling as everyone else THIS IS YOUR BLOG. Write what you want, what you feel, what inspires you, what makes YOU happy. As others have said, the "anonymous" haters are simply jealous that you have a big happy support system and are loving life to the fullest! Do not let it get you do and continue writing/blogging what you enjoy!

  16. Poo on all those jerks! They are just jealous! I don't take your posts as bragging, I take it as giving thanks to all the wonderful people who send you packages. Ugh, annoying jerks in this world! I love all your panda goodies and those super cute mugs your mom sent you! Play date Thursday?? Love you!!! <3 Me ;)

  17. I take offense to their anonymous posts personally because I send you happy mail. It makes me feel good and appreciated when you post about the happy mail that I've sent you. The people that are reading your personal blog and complaining about your personal thoughts can kick bricks. YOU post about what YOU want to post about my dear and don't worry about other readers' jealous antics. Dude! What the hell is going on with Happy Mail this week? Seriously!

  18. I agree with everyone its your blog post what you want it not bragging it being thankful for getting such great stuff!

    I can't wait to see you plushies!

  21. Don't end your Happy Mail posts babe. People seriously need to check themselves when they post anon., talking you out of something you love to do. If they have something to say, come right out and say it!

    And PS, I mean... is it YOUR fault people like sending you cute stuff?

    ReplyDelete
  22. There is NO reason why you should stop posting your Happy Mail! This is your blog!!! I love seeing what other people get!

  26. Hey Lindsay
    Heres another vote for you to keep posting your happy mail wednesday. Its just sharing the love. I also found that as a newbie knowing what everyone else sent gave me a model to base my packages on. So jealous of all your goodies, love love love that stamp. The eye mask is gorgeous, I cant even find where to buy one of those let alon a cute one :))
    Have a great day

  27. I personally think you should continue to do these posts. Why let some jealous people tell you how to run your own blog? They are just jealous that they don't get all the amazing stuff you get! And I agree with some of the comments about how it makes me happy to see when I send you something on here. I see it as you thanking the sender, not bragging at all.

    By the way amazing stuff again!! And I can't wait to see my plushie!! I am sooo excited!

  28. You know what bugs me the most, that these people don't even have the guts to tell you their names when they write rude comments to you. People like that are just pathetic.
    Lindsay, if your Happy Mail Wednesday makes YOU happy then keep posting it. I personally love reading it and seeing all the photos of your stuff, as someone else above me wrote, it makes me feel happy and also helps give me some inspiration for my Happy Mail packages, lol!
    Your blog is one of my favourites, I read it all the time (even though I don't comment often), and I would hate you to change anything unless it was YOUR decision, don't let idiots tell you what to do!!
    Well there I've now said my 10 cents worth! lol!
    You have a great day, and keep smiling!!

  29. I think the vote is unanimous, you should keep your Happy Mail posts. It is so much fun to see all of the awesome treats that you get. It makes me happy to see you happy. So you are really just sreading the happiness around. If people don't like what you post, they don't HAVE to read your blog. All of the rest of us love what you have to say :)

  30. well looks like we will be seeing Happy Mail continued each week!!! You received some really cute stuff this week!! I love the drawing Jamie did, you need to scan it so I can use it as my screen saver!

    Oh so glad you loved your coffee/ice cream cups.. yes I sd Ice Cream they are the best for that! totally enjoyed sending you your goodies..

    can't wait to see how you use all those cancelled cks in your journal, the best thing you left out was you were signing my name and writing cks out (isn't that forgery!! lol).

    At least you didn't sign your own name to my cks like your sister did, yea I have those saved for her to.. ya know they are about vintage since no one gets their orig cks back...;)

    thanks for posting your goodies... I know I feel featured when you post the surprises I send you cause you love every one of them! I bet other's feel the same way...

    luv ya...momma~

  32. Lindsay: I guess it is settled...we all want you to continue with your happy mail posts, I agree with everyone else, this is your blog and you can do what you want!!!! We love it...and I am so glad you love your stamp!!!!

  34. I agree with everyone else this is your blog and you should be able to post whatever you want. Don't give in to the anonymous commenters. If they don't like what your posting then they don't have to read it. I personally love reading your happy mail posts. It is just to see what you get and it always gives me cute ideas of things to make or presents to buy people. Don't worry about anyone else just write your blog how you want to write it!

    Love Kat xo
