A Little Happy Mail

August 4, 2010

There is nothing quite like real live mail to cheer me up. (And Creamie is doing much better, mostly back to her happy hilarious self.)  Handwritten notes, a little shopping, happy surprises and presents sure beats the heck out of bills and junk.  I think if my bills were all hand addressed and dotted with pretty stickers then they would be much more fun to open.  Bill companies, take note.

This first package came last week from my new internet friend TraceyJay.  We are doing a scrap exchange, and look at all these pretty pinks she sent me!  Love them, particularly the two on the right.  Be still my heart!

She also sent me this pretty fan of colors so I can make one of these, using this tutorial (I can’t find TraceyJay’s blog post about it, but this link will take you to her flickr pics.)  I will hopefully get started on this project soon.  I think I’ll squeeze it in at the top of the list.  Or maybe I’ll redo my list completely.  And I’ll make the list in circles too, instead of in lines.  Then it truly would be never ending… and that is much closer to accurate.

You just can’t help but be happy when you look at stuff like that, right?  It makes me smile!  But do you want to see what put an even bigger smile on my face than pink and rainbows of fabric.  I know, it’s hard to imagine… but look.

Do you remember a few weeks ago I posted about my latest internet crush?  This little girl by oil painter Margaret Owen of Permanent Magenta stole my heart the moment I saw her.  Well, she is now at my house.  She arrived wrapped in bright pink tissue paper, and I couldn’t have been more happy.  I literally squealed when I saw the little box in Scott’s hand.  I quickly made space on my wall for her, and I love seeing her everyday.  And, if I didn’t tell you before…  Margaret Owen is seriously amazing.  Seriously.  Happy Thursday!

    I love the new painting! The little girl looks so sweet and pretty!

    I also wanted to let you know that I live in Holland and I get most of your post (via mail :)) in the morning. They make me very happy. I am not a morning person, but they get me all jazzed up and inspired for the day.

    Also I am a geekie tech-nerdie girl, with a love for sweet girlie things and I have to tell you that your photos and creations inspire me in my business.

    Have a good one!
