Postcard Swap................

Don't you just love receiving happy mail instead of all those bills and junk mail we usually get, it sure brightens your day. I took part in the postcard swap over at City Crafter Party Blog, where you had to send a handmade postcard and a small Thankgiving/Autumn themed gift. On Tuesday,I received my parcel from my swap partner  Alida, her postcard was gorgeous and her gift to me was beautiful, lots of ribbon, flowers,stickers and embellishments, I adore the wooden leaf shapes.


Thanks Alida, you should receive mine very soon. Also I received a lovely parcel from Kashi a couple of weeks ago, which was totally unexpected. She sent me a box of chocolates which were delicious, I wish we could get them in the U.K. and also a beautifully painted handmade card that her friend makes, this was to say thank you for the giveaway that she won from me. How sweet, I really wasn't expecting anything in return.



It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas in our house, the girls have just finished putting the Christmas tree up !!!!!



Have a good weekend !!!!
