My Dear Friend Deb Bock, from Garden Party Fame  and my neighbor, stopped by today and brought me THIS! Ackkk! This is the MOST Gorgeous French publication I have Ever Seen! And, as Deb never does anything halfway,  it came complete with a gorgeous srunched ribbon, Card and Embellished ornament! So lovely! I'm SO excited to peruse this Gorgeous publication! Love it!,,,,,,,,,,,
Thanks Deb!!! You're the BESTEST!!!!

And then this evening? I got an Awesome Package from my Friend Krys Kirkpatrick. I met Krys as a result of working at Joyworks, and her and sis's world reknown company "Bunnies by the Bay." Krys is still involved with all the "Bunnies" Stuff, but she has also struck out on her own ventures in recent years,,,,,,,and does extrodinairy paper crafts!!! Well, if you know me at all, you KNOW, I love anything to do with papers, and textures and ART,,,,,,,,And she is simply the BEST at what she does!

Cute little "Bungalows" From Krys,,,,,complete with lites,,,,,,,,,,and this Darling Bird Ornie!
You, my friend are Too Sweet! Thank YOU SO much! There is nothing more special than geting hand crafted items from another Artist/Crafter! I love, love love it All!!!

In closing, because tomorrow IS Christmas Eve,,,,,,,I've just gotta say that I cannot begin to give THANKS, Hugs, or express the love for all those I've met this past year! Truly, each year I blog,connect, attend events, I get to know and love more of YOU!

Near friends, and those more distant,,,,,,,,,Truly, I  feel SO blessed to have gotten to know you in recent years. Your Friendships Truly, mean the world to me! May you have a blessed Christmas and I SO look forward to getting to know you ALL more in the days, months and years to Follow!

  2. oh Shelly, Merry Christmas, you are enjoying your self so much with your boys, YEA!!! You are the best at stirring up excitement and I think maybe I'm just a little in aww of all your goodies, especially the time you have spent with your boys! Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Shelley, I love the mag, will look for it. You look like you got some great presents from your friends and I know Santa says you deserve them lol. I made a fabric collage for one of the bunnies gals years ago Illona Steelhammer,sp? ordered it at the Atlanta gift mart I just dont know which gal received it lol. It was two bunnies facing each other with tag Good Friends. I am going to try and work on my blog more this year, I had some big catalog orders that took toooo much of my time...hugs and love JoAnn

  4. It was a pleasure to meet you at Ruffles and Rust!

  5. Well I just love the cover of that book much less what might be inside. How do we get a hold of that lovely publication? How blessed you are to have such great friends who are so kind to give wonderful gifts like those.

    My family came over Christmas eve and we ate dinner together. They we so surprised to receive packages from me for each one of them. It was great to give them gifts, it really does feel good. So I'm not sure who made out better, them or me. Merry Christmas. God bless. Cathy
