Coming home on this rainy and slightly snowy afternoon, I was pleasantly surprised by the red white and blue box that was sitting in front of my door. I have been waiting for over a week for this package of goodies to arrive and finally today of all days it has come! When I reached the door, and picked the box up I was appalled to see that it was soaking wet and slushy all over. "I cannot believe this!" I screamed out loud, luckily no one hearing, and I rushed inside, found a pair of scissors and cut the box open. I thought I was going to find a pile of mushy papery mess, with soaking seam binding and drippy glue. Instead I was thrilled to see that everything had been gorgeously packaged by that crafty Andrea, and not only that, it was all gently protected by gorgeous pink and brown tissue paper. The tissue paper had soaked up all of the wetness and left me with a feeling of pure joy.
My heart skipped a beat when I opened up all of the individually wrapped seam bindings, and vintage ledger papers, and my nose was delighted by the almondy sweetness that those Cocoina glue sticks emit. "WOW" were the words that crept out of my mouth as I opened up the elegantly packaged glass glitter bottle and the Flea Market flash cards. Today has been a wonderful day, despite the rainy muck that encompassed the package and the rest of PA. Beauty rested inside, and now my craft room is full of a whole lot of pretties. I cannot wait to use these new supplies, and order some more in a couple of days. Won't you head on over to One Hundred Wishes, you wont be disappointed!! PS: Happy Valentines Day to all, perhaps tomorrow I will share a little treat with you, since all of you are so deserving of some craft love!
