|From here. Do you guys fill up imaginary shopping carts on sites like this too and drool over things you really shouldn't spend money on?|
It's another warm day here where I am... woke up at a decent time and got in a an hour of tennis and a nice breakfast out with J before he had to go to work. I set up a desk area for myself (finally) after being inspired by a couple other bloggers here and here. No more writing and working at the coffee table hunched over, or at the kitchen table with all my stuff strewn about. I finally have a dedicated area with all my mail supplies, all my wonderful inbound mail to look at, etc., and a nice open desk space with room to do my thing. And that's exactly what I did today! I opened the window wide up, made myself an iced coffee, put on some music, and started rifling through magazines for good material for some handmade envelopes. Check 'em out:

A couple of my favorites from today:
|From GQ mag...|
|Also from GQ|
|Dog food ad from a food magazine...|
It really does make a huge difference to get a nice space set up for yourself to do your work. I am so much more inspired to be creative and do good work at the desk now! I can't wait to fill it up with fun stuff... I'm thinking of hanging favorite postcards, inspirational quotes (anyone have any good ones?), and fun art all over the place. Once it's a little more exciting to look at I'll post some photos for you all to see.
Before I end this post I wanted to prove that I've made some headway on my list of outbound letters that need to be written, haha. I had 10 letters to respond to, all in order, and of course they got out of order, so I just kind of randomly chose who I responded to first... and the winner was...
|I tried to send a nice pile of goodies for Bianca since she sent me such a wonderful set of stuff in her last letter to me. It's hard to match her level of wonder...ful...ness(?) haha, but I think she'll like what I sent along! :)|
I p-p-promise to get to work on the rest of my incoming pile of letters that need responses ASAP. Until next time!
P.S. - See an envelope you like? Don't hesitate to ask; I have more than I know what to do with so I'd be happy to send your next letter in one or just send you one for you to use however your please. Leave a comment if you're interested! :)
