I Love Getting Mail!!!

I know that this is an old school concept, but the thought of getting mail, stirs a whack load of emotions; anticipation, excitement, happiness, appreciation just to name a few.

Well, I got home from work today to find mail addressed to myself and The Creative Mixx!!

I was trying to rack my brain, trying to think what the contents could be. So, I quickly ripped that envelope open while my heart was beatin a mile a minute. Oh, the excitement y'all!

I pulled out the letter and opened it up. And guess what?????

I just got my official Media Pass to Alberta Fashion Week 09 yo!!!!

It's taking place here in Calgary from October 4th to 10th. Nope, I didn't make it to the NYC Fashion Week, but I got hooked up in Calgary. Stay tuned for 7 days of fashion blogging covering independent designers, runway shows, trunk sales and maybe a party or two.

I've got a couple of weeks to get some outfits together.......can't wait!!!

Now, although I may love to receive mail and I also like to send mail.

So, I've been following Deanne's cool blog Dream Sequins and about a month ago she came up with this fabulous idea - "Postcards from my hometown". In a nutshell, the concept was to send two people postcards from your hometown. We could write as much or as little as you we liked. Well the deadline is today and I had intended to find some really cool postcards. But I'm a procrastinator and I left it to the last minute lol.

I went out on my lunch break today in search of something "fierce", but all I found was "cheesy" boring postcards of Calgary landscapes. Then I thought, why not make them, so I bought some stuff and attempted that, but I just wasn't feelin it. So, I remembered that I had some cool cards that I had bought from Veer ! (a local Calgary business)
These are perfect, so I just mailed them off!! One went to India, the other to England~

I'm out...... But don't forget that the GIVEAWAY ends this Thursday!!
