Post from Mexico
Yesterday the postman rang, and brought me an ENORMOUS envelope from Donna in Mexico. My postman was really excited - he said he had never seen such a big envelope, and there were sooooooooooooooo many stamps on it etc. He seemed to be reluctant to hand it over, and I think he will be back in a day or so to ask for the stamps, as he collects them.
The envelope was so big that I had to put it onto the floor to take a picture. Inside the envelope was another one, beautifully decorated from both sides. And inside that one were lots of smaller envelopes and packages, containing a plethora of good things for crafting and collaging - die-cuts, ephemera, old ledger pages, Mexican postcards, photos of Donna's work, a beautiful card, a lovely flourish stamp from LaBlanche, embellishments galore, little dolls, tickets, fibres, envelopes stamped with Donna's self made stamps and and and! Look at the pictures, & you will see why my crafters heart beat faster and faster!
What a haul! Thank you Donna, I have taken a large box and labelled it *Mexico* to keep my things together!
And I spent some time in my arty kitchen. I have started a picture - using some of the paper out of Donna's parcel, but I am not showing it till Friday, when it's PPF! But I can show you the altered notebooks I made. They are larger than the ones I made yesterday, but were just as fun to make. I have used papers from the DCWV Christmas Combo Stack, and decorated with ribbon, lace, cameos etc.
