The Positivity Blogger Award

Happy National Coconut Torte Day!

Today I am doing the Positivity Blogger Award! Thanks so much to Hannah for nominating me. Below are the rules for this tag! ๐Ÿ˜€

rules:

Thank the blogger who nominated you.
Display the award photo and rules in your post.
Share the reason behind the award.
Answer the set of eight questions.
Nominate the bloggers whose blogs you love!

the story behind the award:

The Positivity Blogger Award was started by Maggie @ Dreaming of Guatemala to encourage and uplift other bloggers. Our journeys as online writers can be an arduous one, so remembering why we started, as well as going back to our roots as a blogger, is a beautiful way to stay inspired and motivated to keep on writing. Hereโ€™s to the world of bloggers!

the questions + my answers:

Why did you start your blog? 

I started my blog because my older sister Clara had a blog, and I thought it looked like fun! ๐Ÿ˜›

Are you still blogging for that same reason? 

Hmm…. I would have to say no. When I started, I was just doing it because it looked fun, but now I am blogging because I enjoy it and I love getting to know other bloggers!

What is your favorite thing about your blog?

I really like my blog’s name! ๐Ÿ˜€ Since I can remember, my nickname has been “Lula Boo”, so when I first started thinking about making a blog, that was what I wanted it to be called!

Is your blog your favorite blog? (Because it should be)

I don’t really think my blog is my favorite. ๐Ÿ˜› I really like my blog, but I know of several bloggers who are my favorite! ๐Ÿ˜€

What posts of yours are you happiest with?

I am always super happy when I spend a long time on a post and it is high quality. ๐Ÿ™‚ I really like my photography posts!

What is your favorite kind of post to write?

I love writing “My Life Lately” posts, mostly because they are fun to write and my readers seem to enjoy them! ๐Ÿ™‚

What is something that you could do to improve your blog?

I could become better at graphic design. I don’t have much patience when it comes to designing a graphic, so I haven’t really tried to take the time to learn graphic design. I want to learn more about it in the future! ๐Ÿ˜€

Are you happy with your blog?

Yes, I really like my blog! However, I am definitely planning to redo the design in the near future. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are my nominations. It’s totally up to you if you want to do this tag!

3. I have a bulletin board on my desk that I love to decorate. I recently re-decorated it for spring! If you have any bulletin board decorating ideas, I would love to hear them! ๐Ÿ™‚

4. We got sick at the beginning of December, and we were sick on and off all the way until the end of February! Did you make it through the winter without getting sick? What is your favorite thing to do when you are sick?

5. I went to eat at a local Italian restaurant with my dad and sisters. I got a big bowl of pasta. ๐Ÿ˜› Do you like eating pasta? What is your favorite restaurant?

Peach and Poppy Snail Mail Kit | Review!

Happy National Cherry Pie Day!

Today, I am going to be reviewing a snail mail kit from the amazing Etsy shop Peach and Poppy Co! The owner of the shop is Megan from A Barefoot Gal. I have been looking for a snail mail kit for a long time now, so I was super excited to see that Megan had made one! Let’s get on with the review – stick around to the end to find out how to get a discounted pen pal kit!


Photo credit: Megan @abarefootgal

The snail mail kit came in this beautiful packaging!

Look at that cute sticker! It is so photogenic. ๐Ÿ˜›

Eeeeek! I could hardly take the time to take this picture because I was so excited to open it!

Megan included this super cute note saying thanks.

The first thing I pulled out of the package were blank ATCs. I LOVE making ATCs, but am usually too lazy to cut them out. XD Next were some beautiful postcards and some twine! I have already used some of the twine to make a little banner on a letter. ๐Ÿ™‚

The next three things I took out were two pretty rolls of washi tape, three envelopes, and some glitter! Yay!! I love glitter. XD

I was so excited when I pulled out these blank bookmarks! I can’t wait to send one to a pen pal. Also included were three sheets of patterned scrapbook paper and some wildflower seeds. ๐Ÿ˜€

Notebooks are a great thing to have when you are writing letters! The beautiful coloring page is made by the awesome Color Box Studio. We also have a list of questions to ask your pen pal + ideas of things to send them!

Last but not least are some super cute paper cutouts, some BEAUTIFUL stickers, paper clips, and binder clips! I use paper clips ALL the time, so those are going to be super helpful. ๐Ÿ™‚


Be sure to go check out Peach and Poppy Co on Etsy! You can get 15% off your order using the code LULABOO. Go get yourself a snail mail kit before they are gone!

Thanks for reading!

Do enjoy writing letters? What is your favorite thing from the snail mail kit?

A Barefoot Gal

Hello everyone!

I have some very exciting news today! At least Iโ€™m excited about it, and hopefully you will be too!

As a lot of you know, I love snail-mail and writing letters. Well, Iโ€™ve been thinking about opening an Etsy shop to sell pen pal kits for a while, and now I finally have! I started working on it in January and hoped to open it by May and I guess you could say I beat the deadline. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Iโ€™ve had so much fun putting these together and making them and Iโ€™d love it if you checked out my shop! You can view it by clicking on the graphic below:

I currently only have one kit for sale, and a small supply at that, so if you want one hurry up and get it! I plan to make more once they sell out, but it may take aโ€ฆ
