Happy Mail Exchange OUTGOING

I recently took part in fatmumslim's Happy Mail Exchange. 
I love physical mail,but in this day and age, with emails, texting etc, it's very rare to find something in your mail box that isn't a bill, so I thought this would be a bit of fun.

It was fun buying random things for a stranger.

The details for my recipient (Shantell) were that she liked to sew, girly things, gorgeous stationery, buttons, fabrics and anything from Japan. 
This is what I sent off

The first thing I though of was the current issue of mixtape
This is put together by one of my most awesomest friends and is a great read. 
The "cool, crafty set" have been onto this for a while and I wanted to share the joy.
I think I well and truly covered the "girly" quota. A gorgeous pink nail polish and some cute rose earrings (which I may have purchased a set for myself as well). 
There's also a small mirror and a kokeshi style keyring. There's also the sweetest smelling soy candle (peony mmm my favourite) and the candle holder has a japanese print around it.
I made some button flowers to decorate the items and also added a block of Lindt chocolate, wish I'd brought two of those. I finished it off with a T2 chamomile tea for some chill time. 


Shantell is also the mother of twin girls. So I threw in a little something for each of her girls.
Oh twins. My mum is a twin, when I first found out I was up the duff I so wanted twins.
In hindsight I'm so glad Sadie travelled solo, but there's always next time.

I hope Shantell liked her goodies, it was fun putting everything together
