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....)
