RAK, Gift, and Crocheted Flowers!

I wanted to show you the FANTASTIC goodies that I received from Lesli at Dragonfly Time and Page Plans! I was one of five winners for a sketch challenge that she did on her blog, and then I was the first one that displayed her new Page Plans blinkie on my blog, so she sent me goodies for both of those! Isn't she sweet and generous? Yes, she is!

She sent me hot hues brown envelopes with coordinating patterned print cards, a K&Company mini chipboard book (I cannot wait to play with this . . . it's adorable!), Snag'Em stamps in a flower design (love this!), and for displaying the blinkie first, I got Spare Parts flower brads! I LOVE everything Lesli! Thank you so much! You are very generous, and I appreciate it very much!

Next, I got together with my very good friend Missy on Saturday for coffee at Starbuck's. My birthday was late March, her birthday was early April, so we finally exchanged small birthday gifts, had fantastic coffee, and got an opportunity to chat and catch up with everything! It was FUN! Missy gave me an adorable card and this gorgeous plaque. I absolutely love it! I am so fortunate with the friends that I have the privilege of knowing! I am one lucky lady! Thank you Missy!

Last, but certainly not least, will you just look at what my oldest daughter Emily is creating for me? Talk about one lucky lady! Are these amazing or what? The coral one is just like the one I used on the project that I posted yesterday. I cannot wait to use more of these! I really will have to look into opening an Etsy shop. I would love to sell some of my creations, and I really think Emily needs to sell some of these crocheted flowers! I LOVE THEM! Thank you Emily!!

Well, I need to get in the shower, and then get out the door! I need to run some errands BIG time! I didn't get to my errands yesterday, because I ended up taking my husband to the airport. It's amazing how bad traffic is from noon until 2 p.m.!! Where is everyone going? Oh well! I hope you all have an amazing day, and thanks for stopping by!

Fabulous mail Carol, it all looks wonderful!
Emily! I so love your flowers! they are amazing, I really need some of those, please hurry and open your Etsy shop!

Carol - the red panda's are fully grown, they are about the size of a koala bear not like a black and white panda. They are so cute, they just look like a toy! I will put more photos of them on my new blog when I get organised I am still behind from having visitors and birthday parties etc over the weekend!

Have a great day!
