Camilla d'Errico, PostcardGarden and Socks(?)

I've been a fan of Camilla d'Errico's work since 2010 when I bumped into that thanks to my then roommate Emma. She had received one of d'Errico's cards from her penpal, I was allowed to go through all the possible ways to find out the illustrator and I did!
This ended in me buying one set of her "30 Postcards" "book". I sent most of those cards via Postcrossing, thanks to one I even got a penpal from UK :D
(FI-943395, FI-952953, FI-959170 and FI-976094 for example :)) Absolutely adorable (yet to some extent expensive, depending where you get it from) postcard set :3

Some a bit nude(ish) cards in the set (3-5) so it's sold for mature audiences

PostcardGarden Order:
Mymble, Lancy cat and Linda Peltola's Fairy postcards, envelopes, one small letter set and 2 tapes of Sentimental Circus

I absolutely adore kneesocks and as you can buy those for $2 a pair from ebay I just had to order two pairs - one for daily use, one for (hopefully) upcoming cosplay :)
100% lamb wool :3
For the hopefully upcoming cosplay. HOPEFULLY.

Postcards from ebay #2

ANIME POSTCARDS BLAST!!

Oh god.. I went NUTS when I saw a bunch of anime cards being sold - I mean SETS. Usually there are a bunch of one-two postcards with $5+ AND postage.. So getting 10 postcards with nearly the same price (and combined shipping) I might have just become this seller's favourite customer :D Jolteon earrings and necklace are coming, as well as one more postcard set.. Not to mention the couple of cheap(ish) and rare FullMetal Alchemist postcard books I found ;;__;; Oh gosh my heart just melted and my wallet tried its best to runaway.

Soul Eater Postcard Set (10 postcards)

Arina Tanemura's (my favourite mangaka - yes I've been to this anime/manga stuff since 1999) Gentlemen's Alliance Cross (and one Full Moon wo Sagashite postcard) Postcard set (10 postcards+some extras for being great buyer :DDD)

Kuroshitsuji&Monoshitsuji  (Black Butler 1&2) Postcards Set (10 postcards)

Kuroshitsuji/Monoshitsuji and Vampire Knight Postcard Sets (see how the envelope is for "Otaku Princess"? :))

Anime Stickers from ebay

The same seller from whom I ordered the anime postcards (and my BFF's Jolteon earrings and necklace - picture coming up later on) sells some anime sticker sets. The sets are a bit poor quality but who cares, anime stickers!!! :D

The sets include one postcard and 24(?) sticker sheets (I didn't count, I was just so happy I got some)

Code Geass Sticker Set (small, medium, big and extra large stickers :))

Vampire Knight Sticker Set (small, medium, big and extra large stickers :))

After a LONG list of not that nice profiles (long lists on what NOT to send etc.) I got a profile of a German girl with similar taste in postcards. I got so happy that I didn't know what to send to her so I chose 3 cards and 2 teas for her :)
And she just LOVED the surprise! ^^
