Well, Monday was a Bonsai ! day in my mailbox ! Feast your eyes on the gifties all sent to little old me !!!!
The main box was from one Queen to another, from Kate at Queen of Creativity.
I was lucky enough to win her giveaway for her 100th post as the Queen a little while back and she sent me this incredible box full of collage goodies from her own stashes !
Look at the gorgeous face that she painted on the brown paper wrapping on the box! Believe me, I was very careful when removing it so I could save the beauty !
She added some other wonderful details to the package, all custom made with me in mind !
Love that !!!!
And inside was a ton of wonderful collage elements of all kinds ! Hand made papers, pages from old books, decorative napkins...
and some really really beautiful spray paint papers made by the Queen herself.
Thank you so very much, Kate, for all the wonderful pieces ! It made me so joyful to open the package and also to dream about where the magnificent stuff is going to go in my art making ! So much fun !
Along with Kate's gift in the mail was an envelope from WI from my dear blogpal, Beth.
A little while ago she presented some new wonderful creations that this incredibly talented lady has come up with on her blog- a series of gorgeous cards combining beautiful words and her own beautiful designs.
I can't wait to send them out as little bits of love to important people in my world. Thank you so very much, lovely Beth for sharing your sweet gifts with me !
And last but not least, I received a perfectly crazy, slight risque card from one of my blogpals who I am so enjoying getting to know better, Susan Sager Brown at Brokn Heart Art. I love Susan's irreverence and her open-heart and her hilarious sense of humor. Brings out the more edging side of this Queen which is fun. Plus she always has yummy eye candy on her blog every month !
Here is a little detail from her
card designed by her with that great edginess I so admire :
Imagine this image and some words about Ed's mistletoe and where he like to hang it ! ;)
Love it ! Thanks, Susan, for keeping me on your mailing list for Christmas giggles this year !
So it is Tuesday, December 15th, 2009 and I would like to take this chance to wish my sweet old friend Suzanne a happy birthday !!! She hit a big milestone today, and she has done it with some soul searching, with an eye towards living the rest of her life in some new and richer ways, and with a ton of humor which makes it all go down a little easier !!!
I love you Suzy, and happy, happy 50th Birthday !!!
This one is for you !
Happy Tuesday, Beautiful Ones ! I hope you find some gifties in your mail box today too !
