Mail day

Jessie texted me, "Ooo, you've got lots of mail!" When I got home I found packages!

Michelle from Little Rabbit Miniatures had loads of giveaways these past few weeks. I won this chart. Michelle included a really awesome Christmas greetings card and a pack of Mandarin orange chewing gum.

Thank you, Michelle!

Then a total surprise from my friend, Marie-Hélène in France, no blog. A lovely card and sachet she made for me with lavender from her own garden. The sachet smells heavenly; lavender is my favorite scent!

Thank you, Marie-Hélène!

The rest of the mail was Christmas cards and buttons for Crabby. I am slowly warming up to the seasons festivities. I just really don't feel like it's Christmas time. Jessie got fed up with me and she and Matt (her boyfriend) put up the tree this week. It looks great too and there are presents wrapped underneath.


I actually stayed up past midnight last night stitching away! It is really rare for me to stay up late. I watched an entire disc of Supernatural, season 2 and Summer Joy is nearly ready for a happy dance. I'm trying hard to finish up WIPs instead of starting another new project! The urge is strong though...


Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I think Supernatural is going to be my Christmas Eve and Day watching. I'm working both days but only for half a shift each day - almost like a vacation! ;)

Lindsay said...

That's what I call a good mail day :) Hope my one arrives soon!

Not sure what's going on, but I feel your pain..lol..lovely gifts by the way. What a nice mail day...you'll have to visit my blog to see how MY mail day turned out...
