Brown paper packages....



While I may have been quiet in blogland, there has been plenty of joyful whooping going on here in real life. Mostly at the appearance of an awesome series of packages from lovely blogging friends. The first, a Japanese Craft book called 'Fabric bag' from Soo, with cute buttons too. I am very inspired.



Then a Capello thank you special. Very handy seam ripper there - been used already. And chocolate - oh yes, and lovely fabric choices for the pincushion.


And a give-away from Michelle - a micro mini Santa hat which will be adorning my tree this year and some gorgeous handmade Christmas cards. This may be the start of a whole paper crafting obsession for me - I am very afraid.

Thank you so much. Partly for the lovely things you sent, but even more for the warm feeling that I get when one of these amazing parcels appears, put together with care, wrapped with panache and sent off to someone who would be a stranger if it wasn't for this crazy experience that is blogging. Sent for no reason other than knowing it will put a smile on their face. That's special - thank you.

lovely mail- lucky you! That craft book looks so inspiring- some ideas for your Christmas presents maybe? I agree, there is something pretty amazing about the friends we make blogging. It adds such a wonderful dimension to my life, anyway...

You've been receiving all sorts of packages, how wonderful! It's always fun to receive them from blogging friends!
(glad the buttons survived the trip)

Beautiful cards and I love those buttons (forgot to say how much I like your cake stand too) Isn't it great getting goodies in the post.

Blogging is good isn't it. I have met, either in real-life or virtually, some of the most generous and inspiring people all thanks to blogs.

And what fantastic post. I am certainly rather jealous, the postman seems to bring me nothing but bills at the moment (boring).

I would be afraid as well - that card is just sooooo cute! Those are some nice goodies you've been given - that pincushion is delightful!
