Thank You Tammy!

OMG I was blown away by the stick pins and those AMAZING flowers! I would LOVE directions on how to make those flowers when you get a chance! I think I know what I want to do with them too! Love the Smooch Spritz too! Can't wait to try it out. I will post pictures later today.

My Happy Mail should be there tomorrow, so I wanted to post a little sneak peak

It's coming, I promise!!

Oh my gosh, where has time gone???? I will be mailing my secret sister her package today!!! I just looked at the calendar and about had a heart attack!! Why oh why is it so hard to go to the post office????? ( I have two little crazies with me, that's why!! LOL!) Happy birthday, Peachy!!!!!! Hugs to all!! Teri


Happy Birthday Peachy!!!   Looks like two for you this year :)
Ive always thought that a mother should receive flowers and birthday wishes on her sweet childs b'day.

Hope all your wishes come true !

XOXO ~ kimi

My item will go postal tomorrow. It has been crazy here. I completed my item two weeks ago, but have not had a chance to get to the post office. My item is going North. Which doesnt say much, since I live in FL.

Sneaky sneaky......

Gals the office has consumed me but im back!!!  Gibber Sister... might be last to receive but I promise it will be worth the wait.

Tammy thank you for the Bday card !  I cant go with out pointing out yet again how much I love these images!!!   your coloring is wonderful!!! and the embossed back ground rocks!

and Happy Mail it was indeed !!! =}

Who knew that arriving home to find a package from a 'secret' sender could bring so much joy ? ! ? !
Ladies... really ... talk about unexpected.  I received a huge box and honestly thought it was for Bryan when I drove up.  He is always getting packages.   Then I opened the front door and there it was in black and white !!!      it was FOR MEEEEEE!!!!!! 

I opened the box to find not one, not two but four paper houses begging to be glittered!!! 4 !!!!! 
Christmas is soooo going to be good this year !
could not fit all four in decent photo.  :)  but it was two large and two small.   Thanks Cammi!!

Cammi made me a sweet card for my Bday  :) 
Tammy its like yours so I can think happy thoughts again ;)  hee hee, 

Some pins! some AMAZING pins with glass flowers, just wait till you see the pic!

A drum roll IS necessary here ........... A CAMMI CLOCK WITH G45!!!

Girls it was storming yesterday and today so my pictures are not the best. This clock is amazing in person!!!!
My scrap room is a deep celery green and this clock is fab in it ! 

nope its not over......wipe your drool.....and we can carry on..... LOL!
She made me an  Address Book with G45 !!!
Just maybe Ill finally be able to keep up with you all.

My Happy Mail!

Hi everyone!! First of all, I want to wish Jen and Lisa a very Happy Birthday!! I hope your days were extra special!!!! I finally have a chance to post my pictures of my happy mail!!! Jen did a wonderful job! I adore those stickpins, I almost don't want to use them!!! They are packaged so beautifully, too!!! Love the flowers, I already used two of them on a name banner...(you can see it on my blog!) The tulips are just darling, and a welcome sign of Spring! And I already told you about the pencils... of course my favorite brand!!! Hope everyone has a good evening and a wonderful day tomorrow. I'm off to post my name banner and make a cute, little tu-tu for Kaitlyn!!

I hope to ship my Gibbs Monday...

I am hoping to finish my Gibbs tomorrow and ship it Monday -- Tuesday at the latest. If that changes I'll let you know. I am VERY please with the progress and how it is turning out.. I'm on to something with this one.. Or at least I think so. My partner will be getting a prize!! Hope she likes it... If she doesn't, I'm sure someone will call dibbs and she can regift it .... I am actually doing 2 of her wishes and throwing in an extra as I did before.. seems to be a good recipe for success....

Friday, March 11, 2011

Thank you, Jen!!

Oh my goodness!! I got Happy Mail today!! Let's just take a quick guess who it was from?!! Jen!!! I love it all.... she sent some gorgeous hand made stickpins.... love the colors and can't wait to use them!!! A set of wooden tulips that she altered... so spring-ie!!! A package of wild roses that you can color, chalk, whatever! They are really cool! And last, but not least, three prismacolor pencils! Now, I have all but four of the current colors and would you believe that she sent one I didn't have ( sky blue light) and one that I use ALL the time (magenta)! I actually had that on my list to replenish!! And dark purple. I use the dark colors for shading!! Thank you, thank you Jen! I will post photos tonight, I already took them, but the kiddos are spending the night, so it's a touch chaotic right now, I'll wait till they are in bed!!
Oh and sorry to my secret partner... yours will NOT be being mailed in the next few days... we all can't be as good as Jen!!! LOL!!

on another note, although I haven't started what I plan to make, I did get a little but of time yesterday in and dabbled in something I've not tried making before and they turned out sooo cute that I think i'll throw them in as well...Lucky you.. I was only gonna make one thing for you.... Gosh, I hope I get to the craft store or I won't get very far on the whammy prize!!
