My first ATCs + New purchases + My first swap ever ^o^

I've seen alot of beautiful ATC(Artist Trading Card) cards on the Internet thus I wanted to try make my own cards, too ^_^!!
HaHa...^^;; They don't look as good as the ones I have seen :(
The first card is "Sushi and Friends" and the second card is "Good Night, Hello Kitty" =D
What do you think about them? 
I'll do more cards and try to improve myself~!! No one is born as a mastermind !

And today I rode on bike total 32 KMs(!!!!) cuz I went to buy scrapbooking/ATC/origami papers and supplies and I did not want to waste money on bus xD (I live in countryside)

Anyway, I hardly found anything, I'm highly disappointed on the supply Tiimari(A Finnish shop that sells hobby crafts etc) offers! 

I especially went to buy scrapbooking papers or other beautiful papers, but this is all I found. I wish I would have found some more colorful and cute papers :( 

Also bought glitter glue :3

I have finally created my own first swap on Swap-pot ^_^!

I'm so excited :) If you're on Swap-pot and would like to join, click HERE

Letters to all over the world + a new purchase

I sent off a few letters & a card today; letters to penpal friends to Hong Kong and U.S., the sticker bags (which I already mentioned before) to my partner to U.S, and a card to Taiwan! 

The card was sent because I recently joined Postcrossing! I've wanted to join it since MANY years ago but when I discovered it for the first time, my English wasn't good so I did not understand half of the text on the page lol. During weekend I remembered postcrossing again and decided it's time for me to join =D 

And today a little packet was waiting for me in my mail box. Honestly when I saw it I wondered good few minutes what the packet was, since I did not remember purchasing anything and I didn't expect a packet from China. 

That was the content of the mysterious packet:

Yes!! I had bought ten rolls of deco-tape!! =D 

I bought them because I wanted that "air-mail" patterned tape roll lol ! 
(Btw I like how this picture turned out, the colors are pretty! For once my editing looks cool do you agree with me ? xD)

This and last week's post ^_^

wow, I have already 3 readers ! Thank you ♡ It's nice to notice that someone else besides myself is interested in my blog :'D 

Anyways, I have got two letters recently !
The letter is from Hong Kong from my penpal of two years, Hayes.  ^o^ It has been a long time since I got a letter from him, so I was very happy to finally hear what's up with him!

Hong Kong stamps :)

The packet is from Random Envie Swap. The idea was to send many nice things to your partner. My partner was Shamin from Singapore and she sent me so many nice things!! Unfortunately, during the journey from Singapore to Finland it had got wet! That's why when the packet arrived in Finland, the Finnish post officers put the packet in a bag and stick this stamp on in:
"On the delivery has been detected damage
☑ on the cover
☑ in the content" 

It was throughout wet and I was very sad & worried that the contents would be ruined, but Lady Luck was on my side(for once!) and nothing serious had happened! 

I'm just wondering how in the world the packet found to the right address since also the address were all wet and almost unreadable(I was able to read it only because I knew what there was supposed to read):
Well I think this is the right place to say that the Finnish post officers are quite awesome sometimes and I'm thankful for their always hard work :') I want to be a post officer too ( ̄∀ ̄*)ヾ

And that's what Shamin sent for me:
so much nice stuff; memos, stickers, postcards, make-up samples etc.^^ 

Close-up picture of the necklace she sent to me:
J for Jenny! It was so thoughtful of her and I was able to see that she made effort for the swap!

Thank you very much, Shamin ♡♥(。´▽`。)♥♡

Before I publish this entry I want to show the new Singaporean stamps I got.

That's all for today! Have a nice day!

My First Self-made Sticker Bags^^

I joined to sticker bag swap!! This is my first time I heard about "sticker bags" so I was very excited to make my own bags ^_^ This is the result:



The idea of sticker bag is to put in some stickers and send it to your friend who take out stickers and put in new ones and send it to next person and so on. Everyone sign the bag and when it has gained enough signatures, it will be sent back to the maker! It's like sticker exchanging^^
