Good Morning Friends!!!

How are all of you doing? It's a beautiful day and I love waking up to a day of sunshine. :)

I attended the Vintage Paper Fair on Saturday and will be sharing the goodies I picked up soon. Unfortunately, I forgot my camera at home so I only managed to get a few pics on my cell phone.

This is what I sent to my friend Norma for the Mail art swap:

This is the front of my envelope.

The back of the envelope. I love decorating the entire envelope. :)

These are the goodies I enclosed. I had soooo much fun gathering things that I really stuffed the envelope. LOL!

Happy Friday Friends!!!

I'm soooo glad the work week is coming to a close. It's been a busy week for me and I'm definitely looking forward to the weekend. I'm attending the Vintage Paper Fair tomorrow. This event is being held in San Francisco. I found out about it from LWA'S blog. I'm super excited to attend as I am already dreaming of all the luxurious vintage papers I'll find. :)

I received a bunch of goodies in the mail over the past 2 months and I never got around to posting them. Since I have been on a mail kick and getting a lot of inspiration from my blog friends I thought I share these with you.

This is a cute letter and package of Kawaii goodies I received from my youngest pal (12 yrs old). She is adorable & is super sweet!! I met her on YouTube. She is one of my subbies.

I received these lovely ATCS from some gals over at Pennywise Arts on Yahoo groups. Pennywise Arts is a close knit community for papercraft artists that want to share the joys of microbeading in their work!

I received these two postcards from POSTCARDCAFE ON LJ. This is a great group for exchanging postcards. Come check it out!

Have a great weekend!!!

I received this lovely envelope earlier this week from Aurora aka twistedfae. I love the way she decorated the envelope. It's so stylish. Gotta love the Vintage images. She enclosed a sweet note and various things to create mail art~ vintage collage images, designer papers and labels. I really enjoy all the goodies. She also enclosed these gorgeous deco books she created. Thank you soooo much Aurora for doing this swap with me. XOXO.

HELLO KITTY TAG SWAP~Hosted by Jentaleigh via YouTube

Hello Friends!!!

Today I would like to share with you my Hello Kitty tags I created for the Hello Kitty Tag swap hosted by Alee' aka Jentaleigh via YouTube. I created 4 tags and had a fabulous time making them. It was a lot of fun. I used various embellishments~ silk flowers, rhinestones, distressing ink, fabric, organza trims, fibers, etc.

I hope the gals who will be receiving my tag will enjoy them.

I also created an altered journal notebook for Alee'. I used the journal notebooks you can find at Michael's in the $1 section. I decoupaged the front & back covers using the rose cupcake liners and added flowers & Hello Kitty images I cut out from some memo sheets.

These are the charms I created using various charms & beads I have in my stash.

Once Upon A Springtime~Altered Recipe Box

This is a $5.00 & under gift I made sometime in April for the Shoebox Party my friend Michele hosted. I didn't get around to posting the pics until now. *SIGH* I guess it's never to late to share a project I created. LOL!! I used a recipe box I picked up at Michael's for .50 on clearance so I thought it would be fun to alter it. This is what I came up with. I used the Graphic45 Once Upon a Springtime collection and embellished it with lots of trim & distressed inks. I also painted the inside of the box a pink-peachy color. I really love the way it turned out. Michele ended up selecting my gift and absolutely LOVED it. I added a bunch of embellishments & trims inside. The flowers & stick pins are handmade by me.

The embellishments I enclosed.
