Studio Violet: New items

I was coveting some items from Studio Violet for some time now, and while I was waiting for a few more weeks (I had to wait for the piggybank to fill up!) Camilla and Elisabeth has restocked the shop with wonderful little goodies! I snapped up a pair of prints of Mr Mustache & Headhunters and four stamps of Manager Katta and her assistent Mr Mustache.

Here’s Studio Violet’s main site and here’s their delightful blog.

Snail Mail list

Happy Monday!

I’m compiling my snail mail list and was wondering if you’ll consider giving me your address so that I can add you to the list? This is purely for sending you the occasional postcard, greeting card and also a copy of the Good to Know zine whenever a new issue comes out (

This gesture is a token of thanks for supporting Pikaland – I’m so grateful for all the times you’ve featured Pikaland on your site, and that in turn has made Pikaland what it is today! Since I love getting updates via snail mail, I thought that you might too. ;)

Just let me know if you’re open to the idea, and if you are, it would be great if you could forward over your mailing address. (If you aren’t keen, that’s perfectly alright too!)
