Happiness in my mailbox!


I received the most amazing things in the mail today...call me materialistic, I just loooove gifts, swaps and unique hand made objects.

These little "hugs" are from Sara in Portugal, I made her a bag and received these goodies in return... 2 hugs, a notebook, a book on decorating boxes, some fabric and a little blue couple ( look here).






This amazing parcel came from Cassie, my trade partner in Open Yours trade 04. I put together a little hobby package for sewing and she sent me this knitting one. Beautiful yarns, a knitting magazine, needles and 2 bags she knitted and felted herself! Aswell as a lovely journal (this will be my gratitude journal from my 101 list!) some cute chicken tissues, 2 lovely magazines, sweets and a little surprise for the boys!

I can´t say thankyou enough!!!

Oh, I am absolutely 100% in love with those hugs! What a fantastic idea. I imagine having a whole bunch of them and being able to give them away anytime someone was in need! Beautiful!

And thanks Claudia for saying you liked that I'm putting more pictures of me up. I really appreciate that!

I hope your day is filled with more joyful treats!

Oh, and I forgot to say that I don't think Neat is available on DVD. That's a great suggestion for them though. It's a show that's created here in Toronto for HGTV. The host is both a professional organizer and a coach! It's very cool.

Oh so amazing! I am always envious of your swap packages, and I've looked into doing it but haven't taken the plunge yet. It makes me a little nervous that I won't put together a good enough package or something, but how fun! One of these days. And those "hugs" are so cute!

Just what everybody needs a couple of hugs!

And you have one more being prepared from Portland, Oregon as well Claudia! I am just terribly behind and need Laini too to take a photo with her camera of the GEORGEOUS pillow you sent me so I can post it on my blog too. (right now I just use photos from Corbis!) YOu have no idea how comforting it is every time I look at it. I have wanted to email you but I don't see your email on your profile. Can you send it to me? I've been wanting to get in touch with the one and only Claudia! May your home become filled with postal swap delights!
