Lots to catch up on - RAK #40 arrived safe and sound on Anthea's doorstep.
Porcelain box painted in an antique style, trimmed in 24Kt gold
Tracy of Mad About Bags hosted a strawberry swap. I was paired with Debbie. Look at the strawberry themed goodies she sent to me - THANK YOU, Debbie!!!
Debbie made the card on the left - I love it so much, I"m going to frame it and hang it in my studio.
This is what I sent to Debbie:
The ornament is a freebie from The Snowblower Diaries. I must say, I couldn't believe what a challenge it was finding strawberry-themed things! I mean, doesn't everyone LOVE strawberries?! Apparently not - or maybe they're out of vogue right now. Anyway, it was a pleasure to put together the package for Debbie.
Last, but certainly not least, a sweet friend, Maureen, sent me a surprise package that arrived while I was out East. Forgive the photo - we've been having lots of rain and cloudy days, so getting a good snap has proven to be a challenge. However, look what she sent me:
Maureen makes the leather things herself! A lovely bookmark, a keychain (which I sorely needed), a leather bracelet (yes, I've already worn it and had to take it off so it could be in the picture), floss, an ornament and some delightful doilies. THANK YOU, MAUREEN! I will enjoy it all.
Now off to run errands and then home to pack up more RAKs to send tomorrow. Have a great rest of the week, my friends!
