My sons birthday was today ! He is 8 and I can't believe how fast it has flown by . When you start getting older and older time starts to weigh down on you more and more . It doesn't seem very long ago that I was 8!!! So anyways he wanted a goosebumps themed birthday party. So I tried to do the whole spooky thing that r.l stine has going . I went to the thrift store to find a baby that would easily come apart for the piñata . I also looked for postcards and stationary because in my town I haven't had very good luck ! Anyways I found a few postcards at first that I haven't taken photos to share on here but will soon. I went to pay for my items and I asked the lady at the til if she has any stationary hidden somewhere and she said " I have postcards , do you want to see?" and I said "yeah!" haha and it turns out that it was a little bundle of 4 postcards from the 60s 70s I'm guessing from around BC . They all have lovely scalloped edges . I had a hard time letting them go . They seemed to fit with the postcrossing profiles I was given to send off too. I have been finding lovely mail blogs to occupy me while I wait or mail to come in and also I've been making Lots of envelopes . I need to get back at painting an doing art every day. I haven't been Doing much . I also need a sketch book because mine is all filled up ! Ive been looking alot too at all these art journals I'm seeing... They are very interesting . I have also been eyeing that wreck this journal book, but I'm a little anxious about the part of throwin it away because I have t mostly all my art I have made ( yes in Rubbermaid bins ). I came across a pen pal blog/ website the other day that said that they threw their letters out that their pen pals gave them !!! When I read this I couldn't believe it because I could never imagine throwing something my pen pal took their time to make and send to me . Isn't that part of snail mail is also keeping something tangible ? Anyways this post is getting very long I will leave you with some photos :)
