It's been a red letter day here at Casa Worthington ... a package has come from Canada :) Mo, aka Scrappymo, has sent me all these beautiful goodies.
Apologies for the glare ... tried snapping from all directions but this was the best shot I could get today.
I'm totally overwhelmed - look as those beautiful papers and all the lovely die-cuts and then there's the trims. And all because I sent a few sheets of paper her way.
It all began with Mo admiring a sewing themed card I posted about. In her comment, Mo mentioned that she couldn't get the Happy Days papers where she lives ... well, I couldn't have that, now could I? You can see her post about it here.
By way of return, Maureen has raided her stash and so generously sent these fabulous goodies. Here's a couple of close ups
More glare, sorry. More beautiful papers and some gorgeous trims, pins and embellishments. And you can see the lovely card Mo enclosed with the parcel. She has used a cherry blossom branch and blossom die that is quite beautiful ... and, happily for me, she has enclosed a packet of both too :)
Isn't that all wonderful! Thank you so much Mo, I will take great pleasure in using everything over the next few months.
After a very busy, interesting and often exciting working life, I thought my retirement was going to be nothing but a big bore, but not so, having discovered the joys of scrapbooking, cardmaking and all the other crafty stuff I have a go at, I'm always busy and it's made all the more fun because of this blog. I feel so blessed. I've made so many super friends through this blog of mine ... not only do I enjoy posting about everything crafty, and anything else that gives me pleasure, but I get to meet, sometimes in person, lots of clever, talented and delightful crafty people. How lucky is that!
It wouldn't be me if I didn't give you a weather and decorating update.
The weather - it's awful here, rain, rain and even more rain. However, having seen the news reports about the fires in Spain, and the floods in New Orleans, I'm not going to complain too much. I hope that the folks in those afflicted areas escape unscathed and without too much damage to their property.
The decorating - it continues and I'm still holed up upstairs away from all the nasty fumes. The walls are almost done but tomorrow it will be the woodwork - gloss - even more nasty fumes. The EM did consider sending me away somewhere for a few days but who would make the endless cups of coffee a painting hero needs :))
Take care all, wherever you are, and happy crafting,
