I've been spoiled by Kim Welling

I have to say that one of the nicest things about UPPERCASE readers is their generosity. Not only do you share your work with me in each and every issue, but your tweets and instagram photos and emails of compliments and suggestions are very much appreciated. I am also completely spoiled when it comes to getting amazing mail from all over the world.

Kim Welling, an illustrator from the Netherlands, surprised me with this beautiful plate for my birthday. (You can read our profile about Kim here.) The lady on the plate resembles me a bit—I'm not sure if that's on purpose!—but I'd definitely love to dress like her with that stylish cape and fashionable envelope purse. Thank you, Kim!

Now that we've been in our new studio for a few weeks, we're starting to get mail that hasn't been stickered over by Canada Post with mail forwarding information. This amazing package of goodies was sent by Angelina Sorokin. Thank you, Angelina!
