It's time for another mail update!

Well hello all!  It is officially autumn, my favourite season next to summer.  I'm loving the crisp, fresh air and the pretty colours of the changing leaves.  It's been a hectic September with going back to work but I am finally getting into a routine.  I've had a nice mail week and I'm starting to think about Halloween, my favourite holiday next to Christmas.  
I decided to get out some ATCs from my collection.  These were sent to me in various swaps last year.  
I've done a little Autumn/Halloween shopping for pretty papers, stickers, pretty borders and die-cuts.
And now, a little mail talk.
I received this lovely postcard from my friend Lone from Germany.
I received this sweet letter from  my friend Marina from Sweden.  She also included a deco swap (below).
Marina also sent me this "Culinary Creations" deco and "Ocean Life" ATC she made for two swaps.
She also sent this swap of craft supplies.  I am a huge fan of Tilda stuff so you can imagine how thrilled I was with everything.  Yay!
These two decos were sent to me by a group swap partner.
My great friend Maria from USA sent me  a lovely vintage calendar book, scrapbooking paper and stickers for my birthday along with a pretty cupcake card.  She also sent a "Special Delivery" self-inking stamp I had won on her blog.  I love both of the pretty decorated envelopes she made to send everything in.
I received another swap of pretty decos from a group swap partner.  Her name is Manuela from Germany and she is such a talented deco artist.  Check out below the decos she made for me as part of some swaps.
These are absolutely gorgeous and I LOVE them.
Today I bought myself this lovely magazine to cuddle up with tonight right before going to sleep.  I love when all is quiet in the house and I can read in bed.  Of course I'll have the cats by my side I'm sure.  :)  I'll be back in a couple of days to post photos of a couple of decos I have just gotten returned to me.  The entries are lovely.  Have a nice beginning of the week everyone.  


  1. Aww seems like everyone is preparing for Halloween except me. :) I already have some papers for Christmas :D

  2. Hi Jacqueline,
    I sent out a package for you today. Hope you'll get it soon and will love everything! :)

  3. Hi Jacqueline!!! How are you? It's been a very long time since we chatted. I haven't been on blogspot in awhile. I just wanted to stop in to say Hello and also let you know that I still have all your goodies set aside for you. OH MY!!! It's been a long time. I hope all is well. Much Aloha~Jes
