Postcards received - November 19, 2014

Hi and hello, everyone!

As the Christmas Season is upcoming,
I've tapered my visits to my post office
from thrice and twice a week to
once a week starting the month of
November 2014.

I've joined 2 to 4 Christmas swap groups
under both Official and Facebook
Postcrossing Groups.

And . . . hehehe
the Christmas cards have started to come
to my P.O. Box.

I'm glad and yet frightful that I won't have
Christmas mails come Christmas day
to open and read
and feel some Christmas Holiday Joy.

I miss my teams as we have annual
Christmas handmade card swaps
(the folded kind)
purely handmade and crafted with
such Holiday Spirit for
the Christmas Season.

Fannn's My Country Travelling Notebook

Hello, everyone!

I've been keeping from sharing photos of the pages I created with my groupmates or co-participants Travelling Notebooks since I started in this activity with Postcrossing.com's Forum.

Now, I'm ready to share these pages starting off with the very 1st Travelling Notebook I filled up as early as July 2013 (last year).

Here's the twenty fifth one:
(completely filled up November 9, 2014)

Note:  I'm refraining from sharing the other pages of my co-participants' Travelling Notebooks.  I'll be sharing photos of the pages of my own Travelling Notebooks upon their return.  I have so far only have 2 Travelling Notebooks returned.

My pages in Fanny's Travelling Notebook - My Country:

the left page is from a previous traveling notebook participant. I started on the page on the right side.

Artist's Tray Improvements and Works done


I'm back blogging again =)

I would like to share what I have been busy with a number of days ago before the very day of Creo's Blogoversary.

I went back to my trays - the one's I deemed needs re-furbishing in terms of design.  They are my printer's tray and my very first Whitehouse tray.  Though I've previously improved on the Whitehouse tray, I saw it fit to add some more and tweek some parts of the design for a totally different look, vibe and feel.

Here they are with me, shown below:

CBLK's Souvenir Sheet Collection Momentos

Hi, everyone!

I would like to share what I have been dabbling these past few days from Nov. 10-13, 2014.  

- Monday, I went to the printing kiosk nearby and had my other Postage Stamp Souvenir Sheets printed.  My photo frames (3 of which) had been ready since August 2014 to house my souvenir sheets pending finalization in design.

- Upon reaching home, I had 3 printed proto of Souvenir Sheets up on a frame but set aside in my room pending completion of the other souvenir sheets in terms of photo frames.  I still lack 2 more smaller apt in design photo frames.

- Luckily when I went to the department store, a day after Creo's blogoversary, I found what I was looking for.

- It took me today, Nov. 13th waking up at 3am or was it 4am, to have the last protos of Souvenir Sheets framed.  And I found a place in our home to lodge and house my Souvenir Sheet momentos for now - my Home's Family Room where my younger sister usually stays.

Here are photos of my Souvenir Sheets momentos decored in my Home:

 accentuating my Crossstitched Lady and Beau at the Piano are:
