Yesterday I was so excited about my first Mail in Japan and about the time and effort my penpal JJkun put into this awesome letter. So I thought I maybe should tell you a little more about her.
One of the reasons I love penpaling are definitely the oh so adorable stickers and letter sets and sticky notes and it’s so much fun to decorate your letters with them. Just as fun as getting a carefully crafted letter and let me tell you, the letters from JJ are always a work of art 🙂
She is a graphic designer and freelancer, has done some amazing illustrations for the Oklahoma Today Magazine and she has the most amazing handwriting (so pretty). But not only that but she opened her own etsy store a few years ago and you really should have a look at her “Handmade by JJkun” shop.
Everything she has to offer is so adorably cute or just absolutely cool. She has handmade envelopes, postcards and address stickers as well as cute stickers and pens and washi tape and so much more. Here are some of my current favorites:
Star Galaxy Mailing Envelopes Mixed Set #2
Sweet Trio Alpacasso Custom Address Labels
Kawaii Macaroon Floppy-Eared Bunny Custom Address Labels
Kitty in a Box Mini Memo Sticky Notes — Korean Shorthair
Sweet Macaroon Trio Watercolor Postcard by JJkun
6 A2 Handmade Matte Food Envelopes with Plastic Sleeves
I have ordered from her before and I definitely will again so I can put cute little Stickers with my address on my mail (^_^) The shipping was very fast and the quality is really good which really makes everything a bargain. Check it out (here) and maybe you’ll find something you can’t live without.
Actually it were her food envelopes (which I have bought before and they are totally awesome) that inspired me to make my own envelopes since I came to Japan.
What do you guys think about Etsy? Have you bought anything there yet?
