Not much mail this week!

Hi all!  Hope everyone has had a nice week.  Mine has been quite busy and I haven't had much time for hobbies.  I always hate when that happens.  And, it was also a slow mail week.
I received this lovely HQFBs swap from Tomomi in Japan.
I received these lovely postcards of Italy as part of a swap.  I absolutely LOVE Italy.
I received this lovely "Vintage Christmas" deco from a group swap partner.
I received this fantastic letter from my friend Emma from Sweden.  She included 2 FBs and a card showing the inside of a church.
I also received a nice letter from Jarielyn from Nevada.  She is a blog buddy and perhaps a new pal.  Check out her blog at:
And, that was it for my mail this week.
Last weekend we went skating and Noah had a blast.
And, finally, here's a look at the view outside my home at the moment-yuck!  Some of you might find it pretty but I've had enough of the snow.
So now I'm off to do some laundry, and then an evening of doing my hobbies.

Great mail week!

Hi all!  I've been having such a great mail week.  Everyday this week I've found letters and swaps in my mailbox.  I've been answering letters as well and have finished some swaps.  I still have letters to write and swaps to do but I'm feeling a little better these days.  Both are always such great therapy for me.
I received this wonderful letter, FBs, photos and a handmade origami bookmark from one of my closest friends Molly from USA.
Another great letter and photo card from my sweet friend Claire from New Zealand.
I received this fantastic swap of decos (including two homers for me at the bottom of the photo), a great letter and cute stationary products from my dear friend Kimie from Canada.
I received this BEAUTIFUL Valentine's Day card from another one of my closest friends Rosita from Finland.
A lovely swap I received as part of a group swap.
I received this GORGEOUS Marjolein Bastin deco from a group swap partner.  It is one of the most beautiful decos I have ever seen.
A pretty ATC and cute House Mouse note card from another group swap partner.
A lovely "Kids with Sleigh" deco from another group swap.
A "Cute Characters on Valentine's Day" deco from another group swap.
And, another swap of decos.
I certainly have enough decos to work on and get moving on to other artists.  Below are some decos I made last weekend for swaps.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

A little mail in my box!

Hi all!  I haven't really felt up to much these days.  I spend much of my time sleeping as I just don't seem to have much energy.  My father is back home from the hospital but he still isn't doing too well. I'm going to visit him tomorrow and help my mother with some errands.  I hope to feel better soon as I have  a ton of things to get done (letters, swaps, stuff related to my teaching business, etc...).
In mail news I have received some nice letters and envelopes.
I received this nice Valentine's Day package from my dear best friend Molly from the USA.  It completely made my day and cheered me up.  
Another lovely letter, stationary and stickers from my dear friend Judy from England.
A great letter from my dear pal Victoria from Italy.
A nice and long letter from my sweet pal Annette from Australia.  It was so nice hearing from her once again after almost 2 years.  Sometimes life happens!
A wonderful swap of various decos.  I loved looking through all of the pages of artwork.
A swap of ATCs.
And finally, take a look at my cat Subaru sleeping.  He loves sleeping on his back the silly cat.
