Unlock Your Treasure
picked out a few of my favorite stamps from my treasure trove and pasted it on my journal. These stamps are from the classic city of London. I have pasted a clipping with butterflies from a vintage magazine and also added a butterfly sticker. I was flying through the streets of London, fluttering through the Buckingham Place, like a beautiful butterfly in my mind.
I have also added a letter from my dear old diary to enhance the aesthetic effect.
Manifest Your Dreams
How can my dreams of London not involve my favourite fictional character- Jane Eyre ? I have added a picture that perfectly matched the image of Jane Eyre that I had in my head.
This is followed by the best stamp that I own. A stamp addressed to Santa, in the North Pole about a wish letter for Christmas. I would give anything to get on a train to the North Pole, like in the Polar Express movie and receive my gift from Santa himself.. My heart still leaps with joy when I look at someone dressed as Santa. The mirth, excitement and anticipation for Christmas is still not lost on me .
I have included one of my very own letters to Santa from my childhood for a more personalized effect. I have attached a quote that says “There are lots of people out there but the only one I like is you “Christmas is my person!” It lights up my house, my spirit and my life.
Last but not the least, I taped a Daisy that I had been preserving that ties the whole theme together.
