More smoothpebble advice:
Maybe you are feeling sad and blue, maybe you’re having a crappy day (or week or month), maybe your job is tedious, maybe your kids are getting on your last nerve, maybe you just need a little something to cheer you up. Well I advise you to consider mail therapy.
Start making some flickr friends or visiting some friendly crafty blogs. Join a swap, or spend some time perusing Etsy. And next thing you know your mailbox will be overflowing with all sorts of things to put a smile on your face! My other piece of advice is that if you enjoy making things just for the sake of making things and they are piling up around you – why not make someone else’s mailbox happy?
Just a few of the things making my mailbox happy:
A terrific box full of goodies from Jan. The blogging fairies papercut is us, and I’m thrilled she sent it to me.
The lunchbox I received in the Lunchbox Swap. It’s from Teddi, who is now making oodles and oodles of water bottle carriers. She’s either a very talented seamstress, or insane (I base the latter assesment on my own experience sewing a lunch box). I think she’s probably very talented!
I purchased this little bird from The Wren on etsy. It’s the cutest little zip pouch, and I love the little bird tag on it. Tag addicts unite!
So, what are you still doing here? Get out there and make some new friends!
