She is young, always ready for an adventure, and an eternal optimist that always has fun. Fall is her favourite season because she can enjoy pumpkin spice lattes and chats with friends in front of a warm fireplace. She likes to unwind by going for long walks and also enjoys yoga.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css=".vc_custom_1524181523635{padding-top: 40px !important;padding-bottom: 40px !important;}"][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="582" img_size="full"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="584" img_size="full"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_single_image image="583" img_size="full"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row content_text_aligment="center" css=".vc_custom_1524181508762{padding-bottom: 60px !important;}"][vc_column][edgtf_button type="" size="" text="BUY NOW

I recently joined the Pretty Postal tropical snail mail swap and decided to make snail mail envelopes from colourful tropical scrapbook papers. It is an easy and fun project for the beginner to intermediate crafter. I was able to make six in about an hour's time so this can be an afternoon craft.

I love learning the stories of the sacrifices they made and advice they can give others. From all of these hours and hours of listening to all these shows, several pieces of advice have resonated with me.
