What a great day!


What a nice surprise as I received two wonderful swap packages in the mail yesterday…

The first is from Kathy for the 2nd round of the Tea Cup Swap. Kathy has a great online shop you may have heard of called 16 Sparrows which has a beautiful selection of notecards, stationery, and items for the home. 16 Sparrows also got written up in yesterday’s Daily Candy. (I love the Bachelor reference by the way!) Congrats to Kathy and thanks SO much for the wonderful tea cup, tea, and notecards ~ I love them all! {Check out last month’s swap here…}


The second package is from the Purple, Pink, and Orange left-over craft items swap which I received a fab package from Janet. She sent a great mix of cards, cool pins, paper, a cool bird which I have pinned to my inspiration board, and the adorable vintage fabric with kittens on them! (see background). Thanks Janet ~ so wonderful & so me!
