This Wednesday wasn't dull!!!!

Next Saturday (the 16th April) Karen from Krafty Karen's Blogspot will be running a challenge. The challenge will run for two whole weeks - to give everyone a chance to enter – and of course to spread the word.
And the best bit? There will be lots of winners! Please pop over to her amazing site and either join in the challenge she will be hosting or simply become one of her followers. You will be inspired by her wonderful creations week after week. Karen is one very creative lady and I'm so proud to blessed with her friendship.


Nothing could be sweeter than to come home from work and find that your friendly postie has left you some packages. Today I recieved 2 and above is an image of all the goodies that my mate all the way from South Africa sent me as a RAK. I'm just bursting with excitement as I drool over all the beads, bits and bobs and flowers that she crammed into her gift for me. Everything is perfect and the collection is sure to come in handy with my next projects. I'm grinning from ear to ear and I can't wait to bling up my next card with some of the pretties.

Tee also included a special little bag that had my daughters name on it as she's gone out of her way to send over some centers that she thought my daughter could use in her headband creations.

Thank you so much Tee for your very generous RAK. Tee has her own blogspot where she shares most of her wonderful creations with us and likes to receive new visitors, so if you've got a few mintutes please go check her out at Crafts/Friends/Angels.

My next package arrived safely from the States. I had joined my first ever stick pin swap and the 5 wonderful ladies in my group had posted their stick pins to one central location where they were collected, sorted and sent back out when all had been received. Thanks Priscilla for playing postie.

Wow!!!! The stick pins are all gorgeous and each one is unique with the well thought out assembly of beads displayed on the pin. I'm not sure if I will want to use them in my crafting projects as I'd have a difficult time parting with them now. I've got the mention that the ladies put extra effort into the packages that they used to transport the pins. From little pillows,a matchbook case and pretty cards. I will treasure these pins and wish to thank each of you for being in my group.
Who says Wednesdays are dull? Not me that's for sure, ok well maybe most are but this one wasn't.
