Usagi Birthday Bash

Usagi Birthday Bash

When we started Mind Speaks back in 2010, we had no idea what we wanted to do. We just knew we liked crafts; we liked sharing crafts with each other and hoped the blog would be a nice way to communicate while we were living in different cities.?? Here we are in 2018, we all live in Houston and have only done a few events together. We wanted to meet new people, make new friends and share the love of fandoms and crafts with local people. What better way than to host a meet up, give away some prizes and make new friends? Better yet, throw a birthday bash for one of our first fandoms growing up: Usagi aka Sailor Moon!

Sailor Moon means a lot to my sisters and I. When we were young, this cartoon with 5 amazingly strong scouts with different personalities was so eye opening. Approximately 20 years later we are still watching the show, still collecting memorabilia and still wishing we could transform into senshi! I’m sure every magical kid from the 90’s would practice their hand movements screaming “Make-up!”

About the birthday bash: it will be hosted at Viet Nom Noms in Bellaire/Houston, Texas this Saturday at 4pm. This restaurant serves quick service bahn mi, vermicelli and rice bowls. They also have vegan options! They just started to serve boba milk teas as well!!

What will we do there? When you arrive, we have a sign in sheet. Sign up to our newsletter and you’ll be automatically entered into some raffles. We will also have some locket cookies, cork keychain craft set up, bingo and coloring sheets for everyone!

10 guests will have a chance to grab a goodie bag. Inside the bag we have:

-Mind-Speaks Button
-2 Sailor Moon Post Cards
-2 Sailor Moon Buttons
-Sailor Scout charm
-2 Sticker Sheets
-Sailor Scout Bow Clip
-Sailor Scout Bow necklace
-Scout temporary tattoo

Didn’t get a bag? No worries, we will be raffling an extra bag after the event. So keep in touch via Instagram and Facebook for a chance to win a bag filled with goodies!
This meet up is to connect with other fans of cute things.

Kimmy uploaded this video onto our Youtube account. We even have a short intro to add to our videos!

If you saw our last post, I started to make some stickers to add to our Etsy shop! The newest addition is our calendar tabbed stickers to add instant tabs/dividers for your journals and notebooks!

I am going to continue to make more stickers, but I also need to finish setting up for an event this summer!

I can’t lie, I have been obsessed with stickers as of late!! Making them, trading them and sticking them on everywhere on my planner.

As a kid, Lisa Frank was everything to me, in a weird way making these stickers reminds me of my childhood in the 90s. So far we have 4 sticker sheets/themes. Watercolor Succulents (hand painted by Kim), Origami Dinos, Gamer Glam and the newest theme: Mini Tabbed Calendar!

The first 3 are your standard sticker sheets you can use on anything and everywhere but the mini calendar is an easy way to add instant tabs to your journal, bullet journal or sketchbooks.

I’ll be adding more soon, 2018 is going to be mainly stickers and stationery! Are there any types of stickers that are must haves for your planner collection?
