Succulent winter wonderland - in a glass dish or baking pan, create a wee forest with mini trees, baby succlents and cute washi tape bunting.

Modern and simple - using star of Bethlehem and floating fresh cranberries

Unusual materials - with a vintage style can, cedar, amaryllis, phalaenopsis, and kale

World Post Day

So I missed World Post Day on October 9th, which is also my dad's birthday, I didn't forget this birthday though.  Anyway, I am reminded of it because there is this great community of people who love sending postcards all over the world and it is called Postcrossing.  You sign up and randomly get a pen pal.  You can include some preferences such as country you would like to swap with.  It really easy and fun.  I have sent 25 so far and covered 121,600 miles.  Everyone is fun and creative and the stamps they use are so neat to see.  There is no cost, except to buy and send neat postcards and then someone randomly gets to send you fun postcards.  Check it out and happy posting!
