A series of WIP pictures for a recipe book for @colour.queen that I’ve been working on today. So I had this little idea that maybe I could do some live videos while I’m making mail-art. Talking about design composition and painting techniques etc, and answering any questions as I go along. Not sure if that would be interesting though. Id love to know your thoughts! 🌿🎨 #natureillustration #naturalillustration #modernmaker #doitfortheprocess #abmcrafty #showyourwork #wearethemakers #handmadewithlove #seekinspirecreate #craftsposure #agameoftones #celebratinghandmade #thefeedfeed #myopenkitchen #cookbookclub #thecreatorclass #foodstories #inktober #forkfeed #todayfood #foodandflatlay #lifeandthyme #tastingtable #envelopeart #carepackage #inspiredbysnailmail #deliveredbypost #happymail #writeyouonmyheart #91magazine_paperlove

Old lady house puts on blossom couture. I used to be so crazy and brave with fashion, these days everything is a lot more comfortable, practical and subdued. But when I turn 80, I plan on being outrageous. Maybe I'll wear a pink tutu, just like this house. How will you dress when you're 80? Will you join me in my flamboyance? 🌸 #liveauthentic #cherishandrelish #embracingaslowerlife #simpleliving #documentyourdays #capturemessy #amonthoflovely #myhappyviews #daysofsmallthings #bevisuallyinspired #inspiremyinstagram #postitfortheaesthetic #mybeautifulsimplicity #natureonthepage #dailydoseofpretty #botanicalforagersunitedsocietyinc #seaofflowers #flowermeadow #flowerpower #flowermagic #curated_nature #flowerporn #underthefloralspell #bloomandgrow #bloomandgrowtogether #myfloraldays #recklessimage #nestandflourish #aconsideredhome #ourplayfulstyle

If you look closely at my hand in this photo I'm holding a leaf skeleton. Inspired by this (it was a gift), I have been researching non-chemical ways to make leaf skeletons. It'll be part of a series I'm developing of botanical stationery and ephemera to make for Christmas (and just general snail mail gifts). If there's been anything you've been wondering "I wish I knew how to make that," let me know! 🌿 #botanicalillustration #naturalillustration #botanicalcreativity #natureonthepage #myeverydaymagic #folkandstory #creativelife #forprettyssake #projectlove #stillswithstories #flashesofdelight #distractionsandinspirations #collectivelycreate #astilllifestyle #aquietstyle #thesimpleeveryday #loveforanalogue #enjoythelittlethings #thehappynow #inpraiseofslowness #alifeofintention #nothingisordinary #thedailys #mynaturestory #alovefornaturesbest #naturalhistory #woodlandwonders #naturelovers #optoutside #simplenaturefinds

Last week on a rainy weekend afternoon, we went camping... inside. We pitched a tent, lit a campfire, cooked camp food, roasted marshmallows, and told spooky stories by torchlight. I've shared some photographs on my blog, as well as a download with tips on how to do this with your family (including - of course - a recipe for damper to be cooked in the campfire OR the oven). I've updated my bio with a direct link today ⛺️🌿 #parenthoodunplugged #treasurethistime #motherhoodsimplified #honestmotherhood #kindredmoments #letthembelittle #quietchaotics #childhoodeveryday #mycolourfulkids #recklessimage #nestandflourish #calmversation #chasinglight #thehomesteadlife #mystoryoflight #aconsideredhome #ourplayfulstyle #onequietcup #awakethelight #asecondofwhimsy #theartofslowliving #howihygge #kinfolklife #communityovercompetition #the_gentle_manifesto #itsstill_life #ofquietmoments #slowlived #smallmomentsofcalm

Because who can resist a sausage dog dressed up as a hot dog, trick-or-treating? 🍭This little guy is one of the envelope templates in my Mail Art Colouring Book, and the link is in my bio if you want to get your hands on him in time to make your own Halloween mail. 🎨 I’m hoping he and his bag of treats make it to Ana’s place in time for All Hallows Eve at the end of this month. 🤞Halloween was never something we observed when I was growing up, but it’s super popular in an innocent, “little kids” kind of way where we live, and the children look forward to it every year. 🎃Did you / do you celebrate Halloween? What do you do? 🌿👻 #myeverydaymagic #folkandstory #creativelife #forprettyssake #projectlove #stillswithstories #flashesofdelight #womenwhodraw #distractionsandinspirations #collectivelycreate #envelopeart #carepackage #inspiredbysnailmail #deliveredbypost #happymail #writeyouonmyheart #weddingplanner #writtenbyhand #makenotes #91magazine_paperlove #timetowrite #halloween2017 #trickortreat #aseasonalshift #parenthoodunplugged #treasurethistime #motherhoodsimplified #letthembelittle #childhoodeveryday #mycolourfulkids

I have a mini challenge for us... But first, happy UN-sanctioned World Post Day, and happy start to International Letter Writing Week! All the way back in 1957, the founders of letter writing week thought letter writing would promote cultural exchanges and bring about world peace. No pressure! Which brings me to the challenge: I challenge you to write seven letters in seven days for International Letter Writing Week, starting today. And to help along that world peace agenda, they need to express gratitude. Seven thank-you letters. I'm in. Will you join me? I've listed 21 prompts on my blog today to help inspire you and get you started, the link is in my bio. If you decide to play along, use the hashtags #worldpostday and #7gratitudeletters so we can follow along 💌🌿 #postcardswap #postcrossing #postcardrevolution #postcardexchange #brownpaperpackages #snailmailaddict #partyinspiration #letterboxlove #mailthatmeanssomething #papercraft #snailmailcommunity #stationerylove #penpallingandletters #makemailmainstream #prettycreativestyle #themakersyear #littlestoriesofmylife #thatsdarling #byarrangement #theinstaretreaters #sharedjoy #handmade #thesincerestoryteller #thisismycommunity #auspost #ilovemypost

In the mail today, a hand-painted card in a handmade envelope, from one of my #yourbeautifulletter students. On the other side, a handwritten note: "Dear Naomi, Thank you for your beautiful and inspiring course. After these four weeks I feel full of ideas for my upcoming letters. Thank you as well for helping to keep alive the art of handwriting and spreading joy through the mail." Oh, my heart! 💙💚💛 #postalsociety #correspondence #letterwritersalliance #paperaddict #creativelifehappylife #creativeeveryday #ilovetocreate #iamamaker #papercraft #thevisualcollective #prettycreativestyle #themakersyear #littlestoriesofmylife #thatsdarling #byarrangement #theinstaretreaters #sharedjoy #handmade #thesincerestoryteller #thisismycommunity #asecondofwhimsy #theartofslowliving #kinfolklife #communityovercompetition #the_gentle_manifesto #itsstill_life #ofquietmoments #slowlived #smallmomentsofcalm

Today's outgoing mail is a celebration of the post. It seemed only fitting, because my Mail Art Colouring Book was released today and I surprised myself by feeling all the emotions (pride, joy, nerves, anxiety, relief, hope, fear...). Does this happen to you when you put your creative babies into the world? (The link to the colouring book is in my bio if you'd like your own copy) 🌿#mailartcolouringbook #mailartenvelope #weddinginvitation #penpalling #snailmailrevolution #flatlay #weddingideas #postcrossing #snailmailforever #paperephemera #seekinspirecreate #ignitetheskillwithin #liveauthentic #cherishandrelish #thathyggefeeling #embracingaslowerlife #simpleliving #documentyourdays #capturemessy #amonthoflovely #myhappyviews #myeverydaymagic #folkandstory #creativelife #projectlove #stillswithstories #flashesofdelight #womenwhodraw #distractionsandinspirations #collectivelycreate
