Just a minute in...April


Via Only Molecules Flickr

Just a Minute in... April

Reading... City of Falling Angels, Delirium, Donna Hay magazine (got my first issue of my birthday subscription)

Planning... The Snail Mail group. I'm trying to think of a name and I'm writing down all my ideas (so excited)

Thinking... About an idea I have to help out with the SHE rescue home

Listing... People participating in the Post Card swap :) (come join!!)


Making... A custom order for rosette hair ties (still in the planning stage)

Exercising... By doing Zumba. Tonight will be my second session and I really enjoy it.

Decorating... And organising my creative space and the lounge room. So many prints to put up.

Loathing... The negative fans in The Hunger Games fandom. They are driving me crazy and I wish there were more people who were being positive about this movie.

Liking... Josh Hutcherson. I'm really starting to see him more as Peeta. Plus it helps seeing more fan made art.

I know they are both kind of similar. But I couldn't choose. 

Apologising... For all my Hunger Games posts. I'm sorry but when I read the first book there were basically no fan anything, but now wow! So I really can't help it. 

Some questions for you.. Can you suggest any potential snail mail group swap ideas? Most of these swaps are going to be pretty light but ideas are always welcome.

Have a great rest of week!

I received my first Donna Hay issue too! I've been waiting for it since Christmas!

You could include the word 'Butterfly' in your snail mail swap group to reflect your blog name :)

A few swap ideas:
- Card swap (birthday, Christmas, blank etc)
- Sticker swap
- Home-made paperie swap
- Letter set swap
- Gift wrapping swap
- 'About Me' booklet (like a small booklet/notebook containing all sorts of information about the sender - kind of like the swap we did, but in mini form!)

I love your Hunger Games posts! :) Keep 'em coming!!

Mail ideas... hmmm. Handmade post card swap? Bookmarks, recipies, magazines, photos, umm... Maybe like a continuous story thing? Like I'd start a story, mail it to someone, they'd add to it then mail it to someone else, etc.

Alexis said...

Oh...Cassandra Clare's new book is out already??? I didn't know!!! How is it?

Claire Kiefer said...

I loved Hunger Games and I really must read the other two books ASAP. It's hard for me to keep up with reading fiction during the school year (takes me forever to read books since I'm reading so much for school), but summer is upon us . . .
