I always like getting the mail. Most people say they hate getting the mail because all it contains is bills and junk mail. Since I am a paperless bill payer, I don't get bills in the mail. As far as junk mail, I don't care. I throw it away as soon as I get it. So getting the mail is exciting to me!! I get lovely cards and things from blog friends all around the world, and packages of things I've bought online. I can't wait to see what is in my box!! Yesterday, I got two magazines that I subscribe to. I brought them home and put them down on the table, so I could dive right in after dinner. When I opened my
"The Stamper's Sampler" I got a huge surprise!!
Since I subscribe, the magazine was just my normal magazine. Usually, when you are in it, you get a complimentary copy and there is a CONGRATULATIONS paper in front. This one didn't say that. SO.......
When I got to page 20 and saw my name in the "Spotlight" I almost fainted!!!
These little treat bags were what was in the "Spotlight". I got the bags from my friend, THE AWESOME MaryLou!! Just the bags of course, not the decorating part. I think she sent me luck with the bags!! She does wonderful work! Click her name to visit her!!
It was like a treasure hunt!! I kept looking and I found more and more work!! I think it is better not getting the free copy because this treasure hunt was so fun!!
Another piece! This is the most fun ever!
I love Poe. If you remember, last Fall I had my other Poe piece published in Somerset Studio. Here is a link to see that piece if you want to. Click HERE!
More work! This card might look a little blurry but that is by design. I used a heat gun to make the acetate wrinkle up so it looked like an old window.
Last, but not least, was my Venus card. I got the stamp from Altered Pages. It is called "Chatty Venus".
And that is the end of my very long, very excited post about my love of getting the mail! I hope your mail brings you great happiness too!!
