I was so very spoilt by my friends this year - I received some lovely unexpected presents!
From Kaye - 12 days of Christmas
From Mandy - I am looking forward to putting this lovely angel on top of my tree next year!
From Mandy - such a wonderful unexpected gift - I was eager to have a play and will post some pics a bit later.
Last, but by no means least, here is my Secret Santa present from someone at CraftMad. Each year we do a SS swap and we MUST wait until Christmas Day to open our presents! I was so impressed with the wrapping, I took a photo! I made it until Christmas Eve and just had to open them!
My SS sent me some lovely cardstock frames, gold leaf printed sentiments and some beautiful metallic/pearl type 3D images to use for paper tole, and some lovely silk type butterflies. Unfortunately, I forgot to take a photo when I opened it and am currently in the process of transferring everything from my craft room into the study (where the computer is) and cannot locate these goodies to take a photo just now. I will post a photo later, when I will also post a photo of my new craft room.
I feel so very lucky to have such considerate and generous friends - I have only just recently met Mandy in person and have worked a lot with Kaye in putting together the CraftMad Journal (most recent journal here). I have been part of CraftMad for many years now and have thoroughly enjoyed being involved with the group. They are such a wonderful bunch of people!
