Surprises galore...

Howdy friends :)
My mailbox has been getting a lot of unexpected action lately. Like this little beauty that I found in there earlier this week:
Handmade needle case from: Goldie

Isn't this darling? Talk about surprised! Thank you Goldie for such a sweet and useful gift. I will use it and think always of you! THANK YOU!

Then the needlecase was joined by this beauty:
Sudberry House needle pincushion, a set of JABCo pins and a lovely lapel pin from: AmySC

You'd think....
that would be enough, huh? Well yesterday, I went out to my mailbox and an envelope from Waxing Moon Designs was in there. What?! I had just been talking to Amy about a Santa that I had admired on BeckySC blog and then lo and behold the pattern for said Santa appeared in my mailb. The accompanying note from the designer told me that Amy requested it to be sent to me. THANK YOU Amy! What a sweet friend and sweet surprise :) THANK YOU!

My husband...
is on his way home at this very minute (!) from his business trip. He got done early! SWEET! And soon our family will be back to normal! I'm glad for that. I don't like it when Daddy is away :o(

I'd like to share with you a fantastic home business. My neighbor and dear friend, Christy, is a graphic designer (and a Mama too). She has a wonderful business where she creates the most beautiful stationary, cards, invitations, YOU NAME IT at very reasonable prices. If you are ever in need of something custom and designed JUST for YOU, then give Christy a call or drop her a line. She'll help you out. Being the recipient of many of her creations, I can tell you that they are top notch and very beautiful! Christy is a fabulous person and I'm giving her business a shout out! Hi ya Christy :) So try Creative in Bloom for all your custom printing needs! (Her link and logo will remain in my sidebar for future reference)

HO Ho ho...
until next time ;o)
