Mail Time! + Updates!

Hello everyone! Just wanted to drop a line and let you guys know what has been going on with A Bohemian Bazaar (along with myself).

First! I got another package in the mail! From Karine!

I have been VERY busy lately. Yet, IRONICALLY... I haven't gotten much done. Ever feel like that? I started my classes this week! My first week of college is over! It went WONDERFULLY. I'm going to post images of Kaya's super great gifts throughout this post while I go on about updates and things. I will come pack to the gifts at the end of the blog post! Oh! Don't forget to click on the images to see them larger.

As for my classes, I go to campus twice a week- on Tuesdays and Thursdays. When I go I have 2 classes each day. I am also taking 2 online classes that I must work on throughout the rest of the week. I will also have a THIRD online class starting at the beginning of February! This week was pretty tiring... especially getting used to the new schedule and stuff.

As for A.B.B, I am currently working on some Valentine's Day items. I am not totally sure how much I will get made, but I am trying my hardest to keep making SOMETHING. Here is a little hint- I have been VERY VERY VERY inspired by French confections! I am thinking about putting my own little spin on some things! :)

House work! As for the model house, I will continue to work on it as I get adjusted to my constant changing schedule. I still have EVERYTHING to do to the inside and I also have more to do on the outside. Don't worry, I am in no way done with that yet!

Hmm.... What else is there? I think that is all for now!

Hopefully you took a few seconds to browse through the things Kaya sent me. I love getting things in the mail, and I am totally grateful for everything I receive! There was the golden champagne glasses, the scoopers, the 1 inch zip baggies, the bronze statue, the sculpting tools, the fences, the miniatures, the calligraphy pen, and the CD!

I love the little statue! He will find a home on one of the many bookshelves I will make for the house. Oh! And the coloring pencils, writing pencils, erasers, and book were all handmade by her! How great is that?! She also made me the molds, which I will use on some sweets soon (hopefully very soon!). There is also the CD she made for me. It has books and magazines on miniatures she found online! I feel like I am forgetting something... hmmm... I'm not sure. I am just really happy to have gotten this in the mail! It made my week a little brighter and makes me want to MAKE SOMETHING!

I am a bit slower with collecting items for trades and gift packages, but I will soon send Kaya some things! She also send a lovely card and letter as well. Oh! And as you can see from the first image, the colors matched! That was basically the icing on the cake. :)

Thanks for stopping by! And also thanks for sticking with me!


  1. Beautiful and useful gifts.
    Bye Faby

  2. Glad you touched base, Blake! I, for one, have been wondering where you have been. Your plate is full indeed. Congratulations on your new couse of study. It is important to be certain that the future is cared for and the rest will fall in place. What a lucky lad you are to have such a kind and gererous friend as Karine. She certainly took care of you...Christmas, birthday and any other occasion you can think of. Wow! look forward to your next post. Have a successful first semester in college, Blake. Warmest best wishes.

    1. Thank you, again! School is going great, and I am finally getting used to the crazy schedule. I hope you are doing well!

  3. Congratulations Blake for all these lovely gifts from Kaya. Enjoy these treasures.
    Good luck with your classes.
    Hugs, Drora
