swoon~mail



How lovely is this?!



I just received this in today's mail: pretty little packages and punched paper strips from sweet Keren at the Free Pretty Things for You blog. No note, no swaps or trades, no giveaway win, just a little gift pure and simple.



Thank you so much, Keren. I am swooning over every piece and will so enjoy using it all to create things (if I can make myself undo the lovely and clever packaging, that is)! The colors are perfect!

Keren's new blog is full of resourceful and pretty ideas and she has giveaways going on all the time.

{Okay, back to my crazy project, which I hope to share soon!}

Good Morning thank you for coming by
your cute little icon is so joyful and sweet ,uplifting in the dreariness.
How do you get so much light for your photo shots its so dark in New England.Did you see Shutter Island..too scary..I guess Massachusetts is going to drive out Hollywood East out because of the actors tax breaks.Leo in the commercials for movie trying to do a Massachusetts accent..ha..ha Mel Gibson and Tom cruise movie..There are alot of movies coming out this spring made here.I did not know Leo was out here until it was too late..plus it was very hush hush..nobody likes to go out to Deer Island because of the ticks!
I am viewing your makeovers still trying to figure out if I should move inland or try to diy this place..the dark pine is a downer!LOL Denise
