Wishlist Wednesday 1.3 - Geeky baby

My brother-in-law and sister-in-law are expecting a baby girl in September, and I'm super excited about it! Since I seem to have babies on the brain, I was looking on Etsy for possible gifts to shower my new niece with. I'll tell you this, we're all a bunch of geeks around here, and if you type "Marvel baby" or "geeky baby" as your search query, you will find a bunch of things that make me squee. Keep them in mind when the day comes for me to have a baby.

Ironman onesie
Marvel hair bow clip
Marvel  diaper bag

Classic Nintendo controller onesie

Superhero girls pacifier clip
Avenger in training onesie
Avengers cloth diaper
Avengers baby booties
Level 1 human onesie
Totoro crochet toque

Just so you know, Ironman and the Hulk are completely acceptable for baby girls.

Wishlist Wednesay 1.2 - Promopocket

I am not sure how I found this shop on Etsy, but I'm glad I did. Promopocket is run by Tomas, who lives in England, and it's full of wonderful graphic design and typography. He sells his large prints as postcards as well, and I think if I bought them I would never mail them out. I would hoard them. That means it's good when you don't want to share, right?


Silence speaks

Live work create

Life goes on

Faith hope love

Life is beautiful

Monday mailbox 4.5 - incoming

Hola! It's time for an incoming mail post today! I am incredibly behind on my posting and replying - some of these letters are from April! Oh my! I apologize to everyone that thinks I may have forgotten about them. I assure you, I haven't. I just got caught up with being warm and sunshine and green grass. Ya know.

A first letter from Em, who is also a member of the League of Extraordinary Penpals. She writes an awesome intro letter. 

A birthday prezzie from Laura! Oh my, I felt so spoiled!

This postcrossing card makes me grin every time I look at it! What a sweet cat! I hung him up on my wall so that I can have smiles readily available :)

A letter from Alecia in Jamaica! I posted my reply a while ago, but I never posted this picture. Seriously loving those owls. She also included a couple of seashells that made it all the way intact! They certainly made me long for warm weather when I got them. 

From Miss Olga, who is just a dear to correspond with! 

From Belen! She's cool. That's all.

How much do I love the Pixar stamps?? A LOT!

From my oldest pal, Callie. Golly, she's an awesome lady :)

I hadn't heard from Julia in nearly a year, and then I got this! Oh I was so happy! 

From Miss Mikaela in Finland, who never ceases to amaze me with her impeccable handwriting.

From Erica in Finland. She recently posted pictures of her office on Instagram and I was crazy in love with it and now I want to redo my office!

From Miri in New Zealand. I think that musical note washi tape is the bomb.

Oh dear, ignore the date on the postmark! *blushes* Merissa's calligraphy of my name always makes me happy! I feel like framing it!

PURPLE TEA from Sarah! Can it get any better? I think not!

Helen in England write awesome letters! She's not afraid to ask great questions!

Dancing men from Emilie in the US.

More goodies from Laura. You spoil me, lady.

A sweet Easter card from Jasmine. I die over the little pastel chick.
Does anyone else struggle with keeping normal routines when summer comes around? I've come to realize that when summer comes to Manitoba there is no such thing as routine. When there's cold and snow for literally half of the year, you kind of tend to grab warm weather by the horns. IE blogging and letter writing kind of take a back seat. As well as keeping my kitchen clean, but that's another story...
