Woo Hoo, the bestest mail day ever!!


First comes a little square box. I open it and there is some tissue -- when I lift off the tissue, a layer of flower petals! then a gift wrapped in tissue, with a big green ribbon, sittling in a nest of yarns and fibers. That Beth really knows her presentation. And look what was inside! A zetti doll!!! She said that she wouldn't have time! She is so busy. Her baby was born yesterday (and she named her Lauren -- isn't this the prettiest name ever???), and she has a 1 year old too! Beth, I don't know how you do it. This zetti doll is so cool --- what I have dreamed of making! I LOVE IT! Isn't she beautiful? I love all of the fibers and little bits. The face and the front are transparencies. And Beth hand sewed the whole thing. I made Beth one too -- I'll post it when she gets it.
Then there's a package from Somerset. I don't remember ordering a magazine. As I'm leafing through, I see something familiar. It's my ATC. A long time ago I sumitted a Halloween ATC -- and there it is, published in Somerset Holiday. Lauren (my Lauren)was more excited that I was. I was just happy to have a free ($14.95 plus $10 shipping to Canada USD) magazine. I'm going to submit to every issue from now on. I like the free issue thing...... Oh, right, I'm on page 106. If you know me, you probably have one of these ATCs -- I really liked them.....

And I also got my (late) issue of Craft zine and my issue of Sept/Oct Cloth Paper Scissors. Ruth has a wonderful article in this issue. Go out and buy it right now!

And then I opened a package from Fiona. It was my birdie folder for ATCs. OMG -- it is brilliant. AND 3 birdie ATCs. Thankyou Fiona -- It is definitely worth the wait!!! (the top pic is the front, then comes the back, then the inside with the birdie ATCs!)
I HIT THE MAIL JACKPOT!!! Aren't I the luckiest person ever? Karma. I've been a good girl lately. (well, I try to be a good girl always, but I had some misses....)

Oooh, what a wonderful post Martha! I love, love , love the Zetti doll Beth made for you. And it sounds like it was beautifully nestled in amongst some goodies.

Well done on getting your ATC in Somerset Holiday! It is great to get free mags isn't it Yesterday I got a free copy of Belle Amoire because I took part in a charm swap with some friends. What a bonus!

And I adore the bird ATC folder Fiona made for you. It is gorgeous!
