In My Postbox: January 2017

Considering we live in a heavily digital world, I still get an amazing amount of parcels through my actual letterbox – and this makes me happy. So I thought I’d restart my “postbox” series, with things that arrive, mainly unexpectedly.

January’s been a fabulous month for this, with:

A “dreams happen” notebook from Sarah and glorious crafty bits from Janine (ok, technically not post, in-person gifts, but still very happy making!)

A gorgeous unicorn notebook and happy note from my lovely auntie (who also gave me the pink “crazy cat lady” mug I am drinking from as I write this – she knows me well!):

Unicorn poop scrub and a book hangover candle from the gorgeous Annastasia:

NEOM energising hand balm courtesy of Naomi – this stuff smells incredible – they’re expensive but oh-so-worth-it (and they don’t even pay me to say that!) :

and a wonderful surprise delivery of threads from Judy!

There have also been some stunning Urban Decay lipsticks and some amazing decorative patches from Em, but I haven’t had a chance to photograph them yet!

It’s only three weeks in – I feel that 2017 is doing a good job on the happy post front, so far!

Lots of lovely Moleskines

Sadly not mine… But i spent much of yesterday packing 100 of these custom-embossed lovelies into envelopes ready for a promotional mailout…


They came in such lovely packages too… I adore brown paper and stamps!


And here is the top of the envelope pile… You can just see the Moleskines peeping out!


Moleskine Press (, who I found entirely by accident, have been fab – accommodating to our needs and deadline, and last minute changes.. and the quality is lovely. Their story is on their website…  They rescued some old printing presses and are using them for customising Moleskines… I think it’s wonderful, bringing them back to life.
