Snail mail and a surprise!

Once when i was tidying up my room, i came across a box containing letters and cards that i received from my friends and family during my childhood days. After finishing school, Internet, Mobile phones and texting becomes so common that i rarely send or receive any mails through post. Looking back at those handwritten letters and beautiful cards nostalgia hits me hard and wonder why don't we write to each other anymore. So i started the habit of writing letters to my friends and some new pen pals. It's such a wonderful feeling when you get to open a long awaited mail from your pals.
Here are some mails that i received recently.

A cute letter along with tea and washi samples from an Indonesian friend

Some Heidi Swapp foiled cards, stickers and embelishments that i received from a giveaway contest in Instagram.

Beautiful fabric bag, yarn and some beads to make jewelry from my blogging friend Joy

and finally the giveaway price from Tammy of T's daily treasures The package consisits so much goodies and i loved everything. She also sent a cute little dress for my little one and i really loved the cross stitch magnet apart from the lovely crocheted items she sent. Thank you so much Tammy:)


If you are interested in snailmailing, You can find pen pals easily on instagram under the tag snailmail, penpalswanted.  Now off to write some reply letters. Have a wonderful day all:)

Crochet coasters

Hello friends, hope you all are doing good. Having a little baby around means the only time you get to spend for creating or crafting is while she's asleep. Here are some pictures of crochet coasters that i managed to whip up during those times.


I really loved the flower coaster pattern. It's a free pattern from A spoonful of sugar if you like to make one. 


It's perfect to place my mom's delicious Gulab jamun....


..... or to place steaming hot tea that i enjoy in cold rainy days.


I even made some for my snail mail buddies and they loved it.


Hope you like it. Have a wonderful day all. Much love :)
