Santa Has Been Busy!!

The mailman is becoming quite confused. Normally he has very little to bring to our house....and at Christmas time it's a few cards and that's about it. The past few weeks it seems that I'm getting something exciting in the mail every week.

Yesterday evening I was up in my studio and HB tapped on the door and said "Special delivery for you"....and he brought in a box. It was from Sheila!!

And what a surprise box it was! Here are the goodies it held....

A wonderful handmade Santa card, a cute Santa tea towel, a beautiful address book (I love the flower on the cover), a little date book that Sheila embellished, a little Mary Engelbreit card that contains some chai tea (which I will cheat and have tonight!) and a lovely little tag made by Sheila....and in purple and mauve! Does she have my number, or what??!

Here is a close-up of the tag....I think it is just beautiful....

Isn't that fantastic? Thank you sooooo much, Sheila. I love everything and I know you put a lot of thought into these gifts. They are all so "me"....


  1. You are so welcome Janet. xo

  2. Santa is sure being good to you.He came by my house today with a really cute card (of himself) and 2 really nice things the elfs must have spent a lot of time on. Thank you so much. I loved the purple tag Sheila made along with the other nice things.

  3. Oh you artsy girls...I am jealous! I want to create!
    You all inspire me. Janet you are deserving of such fine treats. Mum has a nose for the good ones!!!

  4. What lovely gifts!

  5. The postal fairies were busy arriving in California this week.....how wonderful!!! Sheila's such a dear and so are you.

  6. Isn't it wonderful to have cyberfriends? I got an unexpected package yesterday also. I feel so special! Your gifts are wonderful! Especially so because they were a surprise.
