Good Day at the Post Office!!

It was a wonderful Monday at the Post Office! LOL
But First!

Yesterday morning while blog hopping, I found this wonderful new blog through the Etsy forums. Tutuki Friends has just started blogging. So far Stacey has 2 posts showing some of her really cute Felted items. I just don't understand felting, I think it's one of those crafts I'll have to see someone do to understand how it works. But Stacey has the cutest felted items for fall! You can find her shop HERE! Please stop by and take a look, here are my two favorites!

I purchased these really cute angel earrings from Rocky Mt. Beader a wonderful shop on Etsy! Yvette has them in many colors and combination's. They look amazing!

Ok - I happened to win another Give Away. This one was on The Rikrak Studio Blog. Another amazing blog with quite a few give aways! With this give away I received a $30 Gift Certificated and had 15 shops to choose from where I could use the G.C.!! That was a really hard decision, all the shops where wonderful. But I happen to be addicted to bags, so I used the G.C. at The Empty Nest! You really need to check out this amazing shop! Janet has some of the most wonderful upcycled items, scarves, bags, prints and much more. I had actually found this shop before the give away through Janet's amazing BLOG (it's in my Blogs You Must Read list!) This is what I picked from her shop as my prize:

I absolutely LOVE this bag!! It's so big, roomy and soft! When I opened the package, Janet has also sent 2 business cards, and a fridge magnet!! I love Magnets! Poor hubby thinks the fridge is getting buried. Oh well.
I actually had to laugh about the magnet, because I'd received 3 packages from Vista Print yesterday morning too. In the packages were my new business cards, fridge magnets, and a tote bag. The magnets and tote bag were free, only paid shipping. The business cards are free if you only print on one side, but it looked a bit crowded so I did both sides, one side being gray, and paid $13.23 (Canadian) plus shipping. I'm very happy with them, they look amazing! What do you think?

Please come back tomorrow for the next installment of "Wed. Wish List". There are nine more ideas of what you can get me for Christmas! LOL


  1. Thanks for letting us know about the VistaPrint. I think that's the same place I heard about... I'm glad you liked their services so maybe I will check them out for our walk stuff next year.

    the felted pumpkin and ghosts are so cute, I wish I still did holidays. :(
