The awesomeness of my mailbox... (and a giveaway)

I am so blessed! Blogland is such a wonderful wonderful place. Among the many blessings I have received since becoming a blogger is all the wonderful, creative and warm hearted people I have met via this blog. Through etsy purchases, swaps and birthday presents, my mailbox has been happily bursting at the seams with the most beautiful packages sent from all over this gorgeous country....

The lovely Scrappi Jessi was so kind as to swap moo cards with me a couple of weeks ago. Look at all the goodies she sent!!!


Speaking of goodies, run, don't walk to check out all the great vintage goodness that the super sweet Rebecca has in her Thrifty Goodness shop! I was lucky enough to score all this fantastic rick rack from her as seen below... my mind is racing with the fun projects ahead! Rebbecca also gave me the cutest birthday card. It made my day!

Another wonderful gift is from the talented Jenny of Everyday is a Holiday. They sell these gorgeous collage kits in their Etsy store. The details and the generosity of these wonderful kits is awesome. If you have always wanted to try your hand at collage, I encourage you to check out their store and get one fast!



Finally, from the kindness of her heart, wonderful wonderful Phyllis sent me these fantastic surprise . Look at the packaging!!!!

I had a really hard time stopping to take pictures... I was so excited to see what was inside!

Oh how cute!!!!


Ta-da!!!! This made me smile and laugh so much! I will always treasure this sweet gift! Thank you so much Phyllis.


All of this talent and generosity has inspired me to do another giveaway! Leave a comment and the winner will get to select a set of 8 greeting cards with the design(s) of their choice. I'll select a winner on Tuesday.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone!
