Happy Mail from my friend Evelyn

I took part in a swap in one of my Facebook groups and my pen pal Evelyn drew my name. She knows me well!

pink flamingos!!!
Received this awesome bag of pink flamingo confetti and little baggies to send it.
I adore pink flamingos and was thrilled to receive this but wait, Evelyn wasn't done....


I received these precious goodies in a second package. They're so awesome that the post office wanted to keep them! Just kidding, but weird that they weren't in my PO box and I didn't get a notice that they had arrived. Thank goodness I had signed up for notifications so I knew something had arrived! Asked at the counter and she was mystified why someone had set the box aside, but didn't put a notice in my box that I had a package too large to fit.

But alls well that ends well!

The winter stickers are totally adorable! And the pens! Can I rave about these two awesome pens?The fountain pen writes like a dream! So smooth! No blots or bleeding. I think I'm in love! And the Pentel Fude pen is amazing! Purple is my favorite color, plus I can finally learn brush lettering. So amazing!

Best. Gift. Ever.

Mail Call 10-17-2017

Mail Call | akaTerri
Having signed up for so many swaps and entered so many contests, decided that I needed a place to share the goodies that have started coming in the mail!

inappropriate is in the eye of the beholder!
A lady from one of my Facebook groups was nice enough to share some of her "inappropriate" stickers with me. Love them! Especially the funky hand. Love anything weird, fun, quirky, and unique!

something crafty
In one of our group swaps, I asked for something crafty.
This is what I received.
Can't wait to get my craft on with these babies!

so charming!
Received this small charm and baggie of confetti from one of my swap groups.
Made a tag with the confetti and charm, but it didn't turn out the way I wanted. Oh well, I'm still learning.

stickers and stress relief!
This is from a sticker swap and stress relief swap.
Maybe I should update my interests to say I'm a shower girl?

swap swag
The coloring pages are from a Surprise Me swap and the baggie holes the remains of a handmade bracelet that broke when I tried to put it on.

washi & joy
Washi tape samples from a washi swap and confetti for my Joy Jar!

Postcards 10-16-2017

quirky & fun!
Received this awesome, unique postcard from my pen pal Barbara. 
She always finds the BEST cards!

Pixar Fall postcard
Got this fun Fall postcard from my pal Ruthanne.
Didn't even notice at first that it was a Toy Story scene, which makes it even cooler!

October Secret Sister Surprise

October Secret Sister Surprise
Took part in a secret swap in one of my Facebook groups. Not to sound ungrateful, but I was a little disappointed with the items I received. I felt like this was a generic box put together without even checking my interests list. 

Most of the items are for the bath. I haven't taken a bath in years. What am I going to do with bath salts? Face masks? Something that I think is a pumice brush for the feet? 

At least I can use the manicure set and nail clippers. I'm not sure how practical the butterfly nail clippers are, but they're certainly unique!

I know I should be pleased to receive anything, but after putting so much thought, time, and effort into picking out the perfect things for my secret giftee, I can't help feeling a little disappointed.

I know, I know....I'm a terrible person.

Columbus Day hauls

AC Moore haul
Found several awesome deals at AC Moore!
The washi tape was all on sale for $1 each! Score!
The large stickers were 3 for $5 and the planning stickers were on clearance at 70% off. The little fox was 60% off so I bought 3 of them. Great haul!

Michael's haul
Didn't do as well at Michael's but did find some nice washi in the clearance section for only $3.99 per tube! And was able to use a 50% off coupon for the acrylic blocks. The stickers were also on clearance for $1.49. Not bad, but I seem to do better at AC Moore lately.
