{Mail Day}


Decorating a plain white envelope is a fun thing! Well, at least for me it is (^•^)
I started off with a plain white envelope, drew a little bird, added a large sticker, and stuck a patterned trim at the bottom. I also calligraphed the recipient's name in white ink. So far, my calligraphy is chicken scratch, but I really am trying. I will be good at it one day (^•^)...crossing my fingers.



  1. Your bird drawing is so good!

    I just mailed you a letter yesterday!

  2. Thank you Jamie!
    Ooh can't wait (^•^) xo

    This is so kawai amazing!!! your so talented!!

  4. Haha! Kawai amazing (^•^) mahalo Prolifik Projects.

  5. I'm wondering how you started to learn calligraphy...I bought a book but it's all really formal and old fashioned. I'm dying to get better at it, though. Any recommendations?

  6. Hi Emily! I really like "Mastering Copperplate Calligraphy" by Eleanor Winters. Her book comes highly recommended by many professionals and sources online. I'm still pretty much a newbie at it and I find that lots of practice does wonders! Keep writing and have fun with it too. :)

  7. Your blog is lovely! Your handwriting looks so pretty and your photos are gorgeous! <3 You have a new fan...

  8. Thanks Julie :) I love doing it. Your words mean a lot! (^•^) xo


So happy you paid me a visit. Mahalo!
Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones.

Hi there! Photography and art featured on this blog, unless where noted, came from my camera and were made or styled by my hands. You may not use my photos for profit or on commercial websites, but we might be able to work something out with a dozen chocolate macarons, and a juicy deal. Do not remove my watermarks or copyright markings from my photos (please see previous sentence). I won't bite, well unless you infringe on my copyright. But really, send me an email, I'm pretty nice. The snail mail on my blog includes my mail or the work from other artists and pen friends. I do my best to give everyone credit. But, in the case where I have missed the proper credit please contact me to address it. If you would like to re-blog or pin any of my original works please be the awesome person that you are and give me a shout out a.k.a. proper credit, and link it back here. Speaking of links, I do on occasion link out to other sites, however I am not responsible for the content you find on those sites. Sometimes clicking on a link I’ve provided may be a link to a site that will give me a small commission if you buy something from them. Which means that I might get paid (hopefully not in gum) if you click on that link, whoo-hoo. Reason why I’m telling you is because I want to be honest with you and frankly, because it’s illegal not to. That said, I promise to use any affiliate commissions earned for good cause: like stationery hauls and lattes. Thank you kindly, Merissa
