My birthday pressie....

...arrived on Thursday, one day early to my perfect,-))) And I can´t wait a day, so I opened it immediately:-)) It was such a large package and it came from Pirjo in Finland;-)) There were tons of goodies inside:

Two charts of my wishlist, several soaps, a candle which my little one wanted to eat because it looks like a cake;-)), two large pieces of fabric, a felt heart which is that nice;-) ; jelly and chocolate, sorry the chocolate doesn´t make it in one piece onto the pic, and finally two stitched pieces from Beardie designs, which are on my wishlist too...Pirjo, you made my birthday very special with lots of thoughts what I will like...and I like all things you sent;-)) it was sooo much fun to unwrap and see what else is there....thanks a lot and a big hug,

Birthday gift from Margaret

Here's a picture of the gifts I received from Margaret. A small scrap booking album, with stitched insert, some scrap booking adhesive, scrap booking pens, scrap booking scraps(100 pieces of colour card) and a Laura Ashley magnetic memo pad (now on my fridge), a matching memo pad with pen(now by my telephone), and a matching set of notelets. Thank you Margaret.

Package arrived

Just a quick thank you to Margaret. I received a package tonight, a neighbour brought it to me, it's a good job they're honest, as the postman didn't leave a card to say they'd left a parcel elsewhere. I'll post pics tomorrow.

Got it out on time!

I'm so excited! This is my first exchange, but in my excitement to finish it and package it up for shipping I forgot to take any pictures! Silly me - hopefully my exchange partner will take one for me!

And I have to tell on myself. This was also my first attempt at "finishing." Can you say "unmitigated disaster?" So I had to modify it and try my second idea - we'll see! Anyway, this was great fun and I can't wait to do more!

Did My Gift Arrive?

I sent my birthday exchange last Monday, 1/5 by priority mail and haven't heard anything.

My delivery confirmation said it was delivered, however it said it was delivered to a different city than what I had for a mailing address.

I'm confused?

Blog Links and Invites

I have finished adding and subtracting the Links to members blogs - If you do do not see your name or your link does not work please let me know by sending a message to - edgarmatt @ g mail . com (remove spaces). We have 53 members this year so that was quite a bit of cut a paste. Also there are still 17 invites that have not been accepted - I have resent them - If you do not accept the invitation then you will be unable to post to this blog when the time comes. If you did not receive and invitation or it doesn't work then just send me a message. If there are other issues then just let me know -

Take care,
