#PaperHaul: March and April

This is a double post, as March’s box was a little delayed due to a bag of boxes deciding to go temporarily AWOL at Royal Mail HQ. I can’t say I minded too much, as two boxes in one month is A-OK with me!

March’s theme was stripes and April’s is balloons.

Want to see what was inside? Come on, then!

Postcards

A couple of the stripy ones are VERY Brighton- the deckchairs on the beach (obviously) but also the stripy legs remind me of the legs on top of the Duke of York’s cinema, which are look a bit like the Wicked Witch of the East’s when Dorothy’s house falls on her in The Wizard of Oz.

Also, three of these (the cup of tea, the girl with balloons and the cat in the hot air balloon) have joined my Abstract Gallery of Cheerful Things on the wall by my desk in my workroom/study. A lot of the #PaperHaul postcards end up on there.

Notecards and large stickers

These are really cute- I especially like the bees and the children with balloons.

Craft papers, washi tape and tags

Oh, and here’s the other side of the craft papers (I always forget to show the back in my reviews!)

How I have resisted sticking these ties on photos, I have no idea.

Cards

These are just lovely. The cards are probably my favourite bit- I’m keeping them for birthdays and so on, mainly because I usually have someone in mind when I see them. I spend a small fortune on cards for occasions and these are just as good quality- if not better- than those of specialist card shops.

I can’t WAIT to see what May’s theme is!
