It is absolute joy to open my mailbox lately! I received so many gifts from dear friends around the world! Wonderful ATCs, gorgeous inchies, so much goodies to add to my projects, oh, it’s pure delight!
I participated in a “Stash Swap” at Milliande’s and my Swap partner was Rita from Latvia who sent me an envelope filled with goodies I can’t wait to use in my projects!
Beads, papers, fibers, fabric, and more gorgeous things! Thank you Rita!
Then another wonderful surprise came from England! Mary sent me a Flinchie – which is a combination of a Prayer Flag and Inchies, another swap at Milliande’s that was hosted by Kalona and was great fun! I just love what Mary created for me, it’s made with velvet and ribbons, amethyst, machine stitched inchies, flowers, and it has words “Believe” and “Dream” on it. Thank you Mary!
The photo I took is really bad, I’m sorry it’s not showing well how beautiful it is.
Mary also added a few extra things in the package, some tags, lovely cutouts (I hope that’s how they are called) and a beautiful tag! I love Mary’s art!
But then, another package from Mary arrived today! She was so generous to send me a Sizzix die! How great is that! I was blown away! And it’s not just any die, it’s the one I wanted to buy while I was in the US but the store didn’t have it! Sooo cool! Me happy! 🙂
I am going to have such a great time using all these loveliness! Thank you my dear friends! It’s like Christmas came early this year! 🙂
I wanted to share with you some gorgeous things I received in the last couple of days. And I wanted to explain how grateful I am for Milliande, and for the new friends, for the swaps and all that lovely art, but tonight is a bit hard to find the right words. It would be easier in Serbian, but then most of you wouldn’t understand me. 🙂 So no more trying for me. I’ll just say THANK YOU!

“Windows ATC Swap” – Dawna’s and Christine’s lovely cards:
“Halloween in Wonderland ATC Swap” – Marie Austen, Laurie Damer, Mel-made and T.Koorey:
Another great swap is the “Prayer Fl-Inchie swap” hosted by Kalona. I’m waiting for Mary‘s Flinchie to arrive and I know it’s going to be wonderful!! I finished my Flinchie which is going to be mailed tomorrow to Letizia. I hope she will like it. I don’t want to show the whole thing until she receives it, but here is a part of it:
It was made with tea bags, plastic mesh, chains, stamps, liquid pearls, markers, charms, beads, bling, etc.
I also had wonderful time this weekend with my family, it was my mother’s birthday.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day / evening! 🙂
