photos taken by meOh I had a relaxing evening. Been busy making these little cards, I really like stamping texts. The first one is for my boyfriend, I will send it to his new adress and the second one is for a friend. I posted the first image on tumblr and I got a lot of notes so I thought maybe this is a good idea for a nice little give away? I like making these and I'd love to send someone a little quote card! You don't have to post a link to my blog on twitter and you don't have to follow me, just leave a comment including your emailadress! I'll randomly choose someone at the end of this week :)Give away is closed!
oh this is SO funny haha, I really laughed my ass off while checking damnyouautocorrect.com! It´s hilarious and really recognizable. I once sent a text message to my boyfriend, asking if ´Milošević´ was dropping by.. I meant ´Milo´, one of his friends, not ´Milošević´ of course.. Have you ever had a funny typo (caused by the autocorrection on your phone)? These are my favorites on damnyouautocorrect.com:

My mom is traveling through India right now, she'll come back within 3 weeks and I thought it would be nice to give her a little present when she comes back. I know usually someone who travels brings back souvenirs but I just found a perfect gift for my mother: a box full of luck. Photos are taken with my mobile phone so the quality is a bit sucky..(the note says: "the biggest step towards happiness is to stop worrying")So basically it's just a box full of notes. Like a big fortune cookie. I hope she likes it. I bought it at a Fair Trade shop, but you'll probably find it at more stores.
I read this book during my summer holidays. And I have to admit: it is one of my favorite books ever! It's a really weird book (I can't really explain it, you have to see it for yourself) but why I actually started to read it was because of the beautiful quotes it has. Lots of beautiful quotes. Let me show you some of my favorites:She was extending a hand that I didn’t know how to take, so I broke its fingers with my silence.She wants to know if I love her, that’s all anyone wants from anyone else, not love itself but the knowledge that love is there, like new batteries in the flashlight in the emergency kit in the hall closet.I felt that night, on the stage, incredibly close to everything in the universe, but also extremely alone. I wondered, for the first time in my life, if life was worth all the work it took to live. What exactly made it worth it? What’s so horrible about being dead forever, and not feeling anything, and not even dreaming? What’s so great about feeling and dreaming?It’s the tragedy of loving, you can’t love anything more than something you missI felt suddenly shy. I was not used to shy. I was used to shame. Shyness is when you turn your head away from something you want. Shame is when you turn your head away from something you do not want. Sometimes I can hear my bones strainging under the weight of all the lives I'm not living.Pretty amazing? I know! It's written by Jonathan Safran Foer, and he has written more awesome books! Make sure you read this book, it's so amazing. You can read the book here but I'm not sure it cantains every page (I think those are only…
