Mail's Here

The Mailman brought me a special treat today.  I have been waiting and waiting for this special package.  Even the envelope was pretty
A while back I won a giveaway over at Maggie's blog Just Between Me and You.  Maggie and I have been buddies for awhile and if you have never visited her site - you should.  She is delightfully sweet, charming and she has a wicked sense of humor. 

Anyway, she has been emailing me, quite concerned I had not received my package yet.  Sometimes my mail from the US arrives in 5-6 days and sometimes it's 2 weeks or more. This time it was the latter.  But today was the day. 

Inside is a handmade journal she made me.  The cover is beautiful lavendar handmade paper. 

It even has a little pocket sewn on the front full of sparkly bling.  And you know how much I love bling!

This is the only printed page.  The rest are all different multi-colored and textured.  I'm scared to write anything in it - its too pretty - I don't want to ruin it. 

Even the little note card she included was pretty

I love getting presents in the mail.  So thank you dear Maggie for the lovely gift and for your friendship.


  1. AW! How sweet. I'm glad it finally arrived safe and sound.
    Have a great weekend!
    Hugs :)

  2. Hi Kim. It so nice that you got your gift from Maggie today and thanks for sharing it with us. What a nice keepsake. This should make you feel all better. What a pretty card.

    I hope that your cold is going away already. I'm feeling better but still get a cough here or there when I talk and my throat gets irritated and I just pop a candy and it stops.

    Have a great weekend. JB

  3. Oh that is so pretty! I am so glad you got something in the mail today. I hope you are feeling better and you are on the road to recovery.

  4. How fun to get something in the mail. What a pretty gift. Have a nice weekend.

  5. Cute envelope! I love Maggie's blog..she's a corker for sure...and what a good gift giver to boot! Have a great weekend!

  6. Honey this ole grandma is thrilled that your mail finally arrived. As you know I was starting to panic. lol
    Your a sweetheart for doing this lovely post and spreading the truth about me. haha
    Your the best and I do hope you use it because you have a gift so put some of your ideas on these pages.
    Love ya

  7. What a great thoughtful gift. I agree with you too, I love getting gifts in the mail!

  8. That journal is wonderful! I love handmade paper. It's fun to make, but because you whiz up the pulp in a blender, you tend to blow out the blender!! We used to make the paper pulp and put it into those big ceramic cookie cutters you can buy and use them for cards or ornaments. You got such nice little gifts from your friend!

  9. I am so happy you got a package in the mail! Always fun to get something to open and be happy about. Beautiful journal and the card is just all about Spring!

  10. Oh Kim, The package is so pretty and everything IN it is lovely! I bet that was a thrill receiving it :)
    I hope you are planning a great weekend!

  11. Now that's a beautiful and thoughtful package of Spring right there! I would be afraid to write in it too! :-)

  12. what a wonderful gift but you have to use it. don't be like my grandmother was. she saved all these things for best but best never came and we found new linens,etc.

  13. I read Maggie's blog too and it's just a day brightener!! What a fun gift...have a good time filling it!!
