Look In My Letterbox #8


Look in my letterbox is a weekly linky over at Alice-Megan's blog. I've always loved this linky as I'm slightly post obsessed and I'm working hard to pass this on to Monkey. I'm excited to be linking up again now I am back to blogging.

I have loads of penpals and Monkey has a few. This week she got a new penpal all the way from Australia. She was very excited to get her letter and this lovely artwork from her new friend.

She's also had her spring magazine from the Woodland Trust's Nature Detectives. They're always full of fun activities to get us out and about. This time we're particularly looking forward to making bluebells!

I've had letters from seven pals this week - five from the UK, one from Canada and one from the UAE. It's always great to hear from them and their letters make me smile.

I've also had new stationery - a gorgeous 
Cath Kidston writing set for me and a Rachel Ellen one for Monkey.

Allergy UK have sent us their latest magazine. This charity means a lot to us for obvious reasons so we always like to see what they're up to and what we can do to help. We're taking part in their Free From Feast again this year to raise funds.

    1. I'm hoping it's something she'll keep up as she gets older. It's a hobby I started young and have always loved

    1. Aren't they just? I do spend FAR too much on writing sets though!

  6. Thanks for the comment on my blog. You are a "no-reply" person so I'm here to reply! Hope you enjoy the Hop. Maybe you and Monkey would like to take part in another one, I do accept crafts other than cross stitching!
    I usually have five a year, there's a special page on my blog all about them.

    1. Thanks for popping over. I'm not sure what a no-reply person is or how I stop being one but I appreciate you coming to find me. I'm loving the hop so far and it would be great to be involved in one. I'm a wannabe crafter more than an actual crafter though. I do cross stitch but I'm super slow although I'm all remotivated after finding my stitchy bug on a church weekend :-)
