Goodies in the Mail

I've had lots of goodies in the mail this week which has been wonderful. I thought I'd share some pictures. First off here is a package I received from Joolz as part of the artsnthemail secret sister swap

As you can see the package was full of delicious fabrics and embellishments in my favourite colours of the moment orange and pink. It was all crammed into the delightful little tin that you can see in the picture, gift wrapped in fabric with the cutest christmas kitty tag.

I also received a surprise 'just because' package from Flicsha a wonderful lady who I have the good fortune of swapping with on several of the postcard groups I belong to. She sent me some fun fabric and ribbon plus the most wonderful hand made pin cushion. What a delight to receive such a wonderful surprise!

I've joined a new group recently to feed my new found interest in altered art. They have a monthly swap there where you decorate an envelope and fill it full of paper crafting goodies. I received a wonderful oriental inspired envelop from Elizabeth this week, packed full of wonderful papers.

I also had a wonderful array of postcards and am thinking about maybe starting a new blog sometime soon dedicated to showing pictures of some of the wonderful cards I have received this year. I love taking part in these swaps as the mail is so much more interesting these days and you never know what it will bring each day!

Love seeing all your goodies! It is quite disappointing (and unusual) these days for their to be no post for me - wonder what the postmen make of our artworks? :)
