Happy Mail Wednesday



I want to start off by thanking everyone for the comments on my last post, as well as the Twitter DM's and many e-mails. I totally see the situation differently now and truly appreciate the sweet thoughts and advice :) You guys are great friends, I am so thankful to have yall in my life ♥

Now on to the Happy Mail!!!!!

Kristie surprised me with an amazing Happy Mail package, it was wrapped so pretty I had to take a pic!!!


All the goodies inside :) I love love love it all, thank you so much Kristie!!!


me and Cal had a little swap of our own, she sent me lots of amazing supplies for the Online Journal class we are in and some seriously cute panda note-cards!!!!


ummm hello cute panda girl doodle!!! I loved it soooo much I begged her to make it for me in an 8x10 so I could frame it and hang it on my wall!! Thanks Cal, your awesome!!!


I also got a ton of Happy Mail cards in!! I will be writing everyone back this week and working on the pen pal list I just got!!!!


Mandy, my Happy Mail partner from last month sent me this awesome package too!!! Thanks so much!!! I love it all!!


How gorgeous are these rings???


I also got in my Japanese Washi masking tape in today. When opening the package (with a serrated bread knife) I slit my thumb pad all the way to the bone. Quite painful I must say!!! OUCH! Thank goodness it happened on my left hand so I can still write and do some of the projects I've been working on...

Here is why I got so excited!! Who wouldn't accidentally almost cut their thumb off to open a package like this????? :D worth it? YES!


Now I'm just waiting for my Mint Candy Apple nail polish to come in!!!! SO EXCITED!!! Pics coming soon :)

I also wanted to announce there will be amazing secret projects coming up!!!! I am working on one with a friend that is going to be AMAZING!!! and the other I'm going to be a part of and it's so secret I don't even know what it is yet!!! LOL :) So keep checking back for some exciting new stuff happening!


Vivs started a storyline on Facebook and a lot of us girls would say a line to get the story going. Creative much? This is our story.. Hope you enjoy :)

Vivs: Once upon a time...

Jamie:
there was a girl who lived in Ireland...

Erica:
she lived in a castle next to Bono...

Me:
& ate boiled eggs all day...

Carrie
she rode a unicorn named Sundancer...

Vivs: to work at the robot factory...

Me:
where she made tiny panda robots.

Jamie:
But one day, the factory encountered a problem and all the tiny panda robots came out looking like...

Vivs: Michael Jackson...

Me:
& she peed her pants from laughter.

Vivs: If only they could do the moonwalk, she thought...

Me:
Then they would be Micheal Jackson panda robots she thought....brilliant!!!!

Me:
& what's better than a panda robot with style and killer dance moves?

Meesh:
so she let the machines continue running & produced a mass amount of moon walking panda robots.

Me:
But all of a sudden, her boss showed up!!!! & apparently he is more of a koala bear fan...

Meesh:
so he said "get these pandas out of my sight!" & the girl reluctantly opened the factory doors & released the Michael Jackson look a like moon walking panda robots out into the wild, not sure of how well they'd make it on their own.

Vivs: Oh no!!!

Me:
Then a shadow appeared.. it was the mother of all panda robot Michael Jackson look alikes. The mother stomped the boss and ran her little panda robot babies back into the factory!! Where they ate a ton of boiled eggs and sang Lady Gaga's "Just Dance" :)

Vivs: The girl who lived in the castle was amazed at all the baby panda robots singing "Just Dance" that she could not help herself...

Cal:
she just HAD to stop the madness!!! So she pumped up the bass, flipped the switch & with all the little baby panda robots, danced to "Thriller!"

Jamie:
Then the room filled with baby panda robot zombies.

Me:
Then out of no where, everyone started getting sick... They realized it was the boiled eggs, apparently the princess forgot to check the expiration date....

Cal:
so the princess quickly ran to her room of princessy wonders & grabbed a magical bottle of ipecac!

Me:
all will be well again she thought. so the party commenced and they all lived happily ever after in the factory. --> Moral of the story, never let a princess be in charge of the eggs!!!


The story came out so cute Cal is making a cute illustration book out of it!!! How amazing is that?? Hope everyone has a great Wednesday!!! Happy St. Patty's Day!!!!

xoxo,
Lindsay
