The usual mail & shopping news!

Hello all of my lovely friends! I have been wanting to post this for a few days now but as I tried loading the photos either my computer, Internet connection or blogger was causing me problems. So, after a few attempts here I am. I have no patience for computers so when they don't do what I ask I become VERY annoyed. Anyhow, I've been really busy in the past couple of weeks, actually ever since the end of August and I am really missing time for myself and my hobbies. I'm thankful that we have a three day weekend coming up. It's Canadian Thanksgiving so I will have some major ME TIME. This week I've also had a cold and I've felt tired but I'm pleased to say I'm on the mends now. I've missed blogging and I want to do different kinds of posts but unfortunately it's the lack of time. :( Oh well...
So, here we go with some of last week's mail.

I received this gorgeous deco as part of a swap. It was made by one of my friends (Laura) so I was honoured to receive it. There are only two more entries and it'll be on its way home to her. I'll sign it and sent it to our mutual friend Johanna. Laura always makes the most beautiful art work and she is so incredibly talented with her jewellery making. Check out the link to her shop on my blog.

I think this is the last of the postcards from the postcard swap I had joined in September. Isn't it adorable? I love it since it is Halloween themed and it is perfect for this time of the year.

Here are some FBs I received from part of a group swap.

More beautiful decos made by Marina, a swapper friend from one of my groups at yahoo. I love the postcard with the girl anf kitties. What a beautiful image! There is actually a store near my home who sells a canvas copy of it and I'm thinking of buying it since I love it so much.

Another adorable deco made by another fellow swapper, part of a group at yahoo. Those Suzy Zoo characters are so cute!

A "Vintage Cowgirls" themed deco from another group swap.

Another pretty deco part of a group swap.

More pretty decos sent to me by a fellow swapper.

Last weekend I met up with my friend Sonia for lunch, shopping and chatting. We hadn't seen each other in a while so it was nice to catch up. Anyhow, Sonia is a Stampin 'Up demonstrator so she gave me some rubber stamps, a small garbage bin and bag, all Stampin 'Up products. I also placed an order for some items. :)

Here are some of the items I bought while shopping with Sonia. I love the papercrafts line by Bo Bunny as well as K & Company (below).

More paper to enjoy, like I don't have enough already. Sigh! Actually the paper will be used on a canvas project for one of my upcoming painting classes whereas the rectangular tags I will use for mail art.

I'm hoping to be back this weekend since I have received some awesome mail this week and I want to share some craft projects. Enjoy the end of the week everyone! :)


  1. ...Of course I immediately fell in love with all your papercrafts! I have been buying some papers too, as you say 'like I don't have enough already'..but I can't help it! I can't hide from papers, they always find me haha..
    I hope you feel better my friend, weekend is almost here, enjoy it and have a wonderful Thanksgiving Day! Hugs from NC. And Thank you :D

  2. Aw, thank you for signing my deco, I so look forward to see it! <3 <3

  3. PS. I also wanted to say that I love the stamps, papers & trinkets, but I am so tired right now that, for the moment, I forgot *lol, bear with me, please, it is friday afternoon and I still have one more course to tech before weekend*.
