Hi everyone. Yesterday I got a lovely surprise in the post, all the way from Singapore. I am involved in an online design group and one of the members, Gill Eggleston came up with an EFUTO envelope idea for us to connect with each other. EFUTO is a Japanese picture envelope (e = picture, futo = envelope) and I received mine from the lovely Sylvia Tay of Sylvia Tay Designs.
Isn’t it gorgeous? I was so happy to receive it and it is lovely to connect with a fellow designer.
But that’s not all! Sylvia very kindly sent me a lovely gift inside.
How cute are these lovely Pochibukuro envelopes? They are just the cutest! The envelopes are used for money gifts to children on New Year’s Day and these ones are from Japan.
Thank you Sylvia for your wonderful envelope and gift. I will cherish it ♡
Hi everyone. Yesterday I got a lovely surprise and one of my Christmas cards was featured on the Card and Gift Blog.
My Jolly Robins Christmas card was featured on a blog post titled Ten Cards for a Cute Christmas.
I’m so delighted. You can check it out here. Thank you Charlotte of Card and Gift Blog ♡
Hi everyone. Yesterday I was a very lucky girl and got a lovely surprise in the post. Nowadays with the slow death of letter-writing, it’s normal to only get bills and junk mail in the post. So as you can imagine my delight to get this lovely gift in the mail!
The sender was the lovely Jennie of JLW Illustration and she gave me a lovely keyring with her arrow design and a lovely notebook to fill with lots of new designs.
Thank you Jennie for this thoughtful gift. She gave me this as a thank you for helping her reach 500 followers on Twitter.
That’s how amazing it is to be part of a design community. Everyone helps each other out and supports each other. Sometimes we end up competing in the same competitions, but we still support each other and know there is enough work to go around for everyone. ♡
