PARCELS IN THE POST

Today the postie delivered surprises from distant places.
This ATC (from the UK) is called Rockpool and was sent to me by Lorna - artymess, as part of the Stitchin Fingers ATC group swap for May.  The theme was under sea creatures.  Take a look at the atc blog to see the fantastic tiny works of art that are swapped throughout the year.

The next parcel was a card with gorgeous threads, sent to me by a dear friend in Queensland.  I can see these will be used on future ATCs and postcards.  Thanks so much Laurel for thinking of me and for your generosity.

Once I had finished drooling over  the first two parcels I opened one from the USA.  
This was a prize I won through a random draw on the 3 Creative Studios forum.  Each month a new technique is suggested and members show the results of their efforts.  Then one name is drawn for the prize.  This past month I was the lucky winner of threads, hand dyed fabrics, buttons, yarns, a gorgeous handmade book and card.  So many possibilities.

This last little group of goodies were included in the parcel from Lorna.

Dian, thanks for sharing your goodies with your friends. It's such fun opening mail these days, we seem to 'receive' so much. I, too was fortunate to receive one of the random prize packages from Sue/Terry.....all sorts of interesting things. Congratulations, and can't wait to see what you will use everything for. The card of threads looks amazing too, such soft colours and interesting textures. And, lucky you to receive the beautiful ATC. These little cards are all works of art.
