Another Swap Milestone!

Hi dolls! I'm enjoying the rain and fresh fall leaves... in June!? Yup! I'm getting used to the Southern Hemisphere of seasons in my new area. I did my first few swaps here from New Zealand (yay!), and I love the mail stamp that comes up when you send it: From the Middle of Middle Earth - New Zealand (below). I hope my swap partners are as happy as this as I am!

Another very special shout-out to the Rachel & Travis from www.swap-bot.com: congratulations on Swap-Bot's 200,000th swap

Such a phenomenal accomplishment with 413 swappers! I'm glad to be part of such a wonderful mail & art community, and have made a lot of great friends along the way. (Check out the 100,000th swap post here).

Hello, New Zealand!

Hi dolls! Sorry, it's been a while since I posted. I recently moved to New Zealand in February of this year for my PhD studies. I'm currently in the process of working on a mini revamp for my blog, and as well as figuring out a schedule for working part-time on Berry Sweet Treats. I'm still pinning away, posting photos (new photos will be up in a few days), and sharing tutorials!

Also, I've been crocheting quite a bit to decorate my new room! There's a few photos on Instagram, and the links to the patterns. There will be some new tutorials posted on my blog soon, including some of my own, so stay tuned!

Adorable crochet tissue box cozy tutorial by Twinkie Chan that I used to make this for my room!

Speaking of decor, one of my new favourite things is my Budgie Bunting DIY Kit from the awesome founder Leona of the Lucky Dip Club (check her out)! I used to have three budgies, and it's a sweet reminder of them: so cute and colourful.

Happy Halloween! ☆ミ

Hi dolls, I hope you're all enjoying your Halloween! I carved this Monsters, Inc.  Mike Wazowski pumpkin  (inspiration here) and just finished watching one of my favourite Halloween movies Hocus Pocus. What are your favourite Halloween pastimes?

Wishing you a wonderful Halloween and remember to be safe and have fun!
  • Make sure costumes aren't too long, so you won't trip when walking
  • Always stay on the sidewalks in well lit places
  • Stay in groups with adult supervision
  • Check out some more tips from the Canadian Red Cross here!
Do you remember growing up taking the  UNICEF  boxes Trick-or-Treating, and fundraising for children? You can get a digital one online to donate!
