letter from japan~ ♪♪

good afternoon everyone~ 

i've been hiding home the past few days because i had the last of my wisdom teeth removed, but the doctor messed up a bit and things got complicated... i've been on the recovering side though so that's good~ (。・ω・。)

the mailman came today and i heard a thud on the floor, so i rushed over and was very much delighted to find this letter waiting on the doormat~! 

it's from my new penpal tammy who also happens to be one of my favourite tumblr artists~ 
please do check out her blog here ! ♡

she sent me a really cute pair of socks (can't go wrong with florals and lace~) and even alpaca stickers ! it's as if she has known me for years.. haha~

the highlight for me was the original piece of art though.. since i like her art so much, it felt like acquiring an expensive painting to me ! (๑・ω-)~♥”

that concludes my post for today ! ✿

felt wool crafts & mail art .:*・°☆

aside from art, i've been looking into all sorts of crafts lately~ ♪
wool felting caught my interest and i was happy to receive my supplies today ! 

i bought a basic needle set, a felt ball tool and some hamanaka felt wool~
can't wait to try it out !! 

here are the craft books to help me start out~ even though i can't read japanese, the photographs, diagrams and patterns help a lot~ (◡‿◡✿)

    there are so many adorable projects~! 

furthermore i'd like to share the latest letter i sent to my lovely penpal georgia and a new piece i drew~

i wanted to picture the joy of going to the post office and sending a letter~ 

that's all for now~ thank you for reading~

berries & daisies .。o✿

i've finally made the big plunge~! my blog has changed names from 'mochidrop' to 'petit berry' and it has a shiny new layout too~ i worked really hard on it !

aside from a new layout, i've also been working on some new art~ i think i've become a bit better when it comes to colouring !! 
i've a found new love for spinning flowers it seems.. ~

she kind of reminds me of hagu from honey & clover~ 

ah, the piece where a part of my header originates from~ everybody fighting~!!
i hope i can make more friends and i'd love to discover new blogs to follow, so please don't hesitate leave your link in the comment box~

cosy & comfy ✿

i decided to redecorate my room a little this summer~
i'm really pleased with the result so far, but i'm still far from done, haha~
(my bookcase is still a mess, gosh.. ヾ(´▽`;)ゝ)

i basically reorganised my pinboard and gave it a mori theme whereas it previously functioned as temporary deposit for the most random assortment of things~ (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

and i moved my ancient computer with huuuge crt-screen to the attic which grants me space for my sewing machine~! hopefully i'll get more motivated to learn how to sew now~ (^▽^)

happiness is actually very simple~ ♡ 
my personal maxim is now hanging above my desk, hehe~

plus i got new pretty flowers as well ! ✿

last, but not least.. i finally tried out watercolours and it's so fun~!! love the results they give~~
