Good Mail Days

Over the past couple of months, I've been the lucky recipient of some fantastic packages so I have several pieces of Happy Mail to share with y'all today.

First of all, I am VERY late in posting my thanks to Jacky for this lovely batch of goodies that arrived as part of Sian's Great Big Swap of Very Small Things. I've already used some of these wonderful items and am especially pleased with the number of travel items Jacky sent to inspire me to continue working on my cruise album. Thanks Jacky!! (And thanks Sian for hosting this fun swap!)


Once the Finding Photo Freedom workshop concluded, I received this entire kit of Bo Bunny products from Stacy Julian. I haven't quite decided yet how I'll use these items, but I do believe that this could be the beginning of a fun mini-album. Thanks Stacy!!


This cute Thank You card from Cheryl arrived with a couple of 6x6 papers and matching embellishments. This package arrived a while back and I've already used one of these papers and a couple of the flowers! Thanks Cheryl!!


A couple of weeks ago, Helena blogged about an entire bouquet of flowers she crocheted and offered to share some to those who left a comment. I had completely forgotten about it until these beautiful blooms arrived in my mailbox a few days ago. I do think these would look great on a layout, or maybe as an embellishment on a ponytail holder - I just can't decide, maybe one of each. Thanks Helena!!


Finding a happy mail package nestled among the bills and advertisements in my mailbox always makes me smile - I hope you are having Good Mail Days, too!

What great mail! I spied a Jacky card right away. I received a yellow and green flower (special request) which are the colors of the University of Oregon (where Henry will be going), and I wore it to several graduation parties.

Very nice happy mail indeed :)

Having a good peer at your photos is almost as much fun as opening the parcel myself!

I've ordered a few new products since I found some sales on the internet, so I'm expecting some happy mail very shortly. You've had quite some lovely things arrive.
