Welcome and Mail Arrival!!!

I have three new followers to welcome today- but first I must post about mail I received last weekend! I signed up for an artful penpals exchange. We were given a penpal to help revive the art of letter writing and using the good old postal system for correspondence. My penpal is Dani from The Netherlands and she is a sweetheart. On saturday I received the most wonderful letter and package of treats from her! In the picture you can see that not only did Dani send me a long letter, with beautiful art stickers and a hand drawn decorated envelope but she also sent me the sweetest fabric and a bag of charms. I need to think long and hard about what I would like to make with the fabric- it is so adorable that it needs a special project. Anyone have any cool ideas? I love it all sooo much- thank you so much Dani! I will write soon! I am glad you are my penpal partner!!

I need to welcome some new followers too. I will start with my penpal Dani. Her blog is http://theweirdworldofdani.web-log.nl/mijn_weblog/
Dani is currently taking a class from Suzi Blu ( http://suziblu.ning.com/ ) and is posting her progress as she goes along. Please visit my friend Dani and say hello! Thank you for following my blog Dani :)

Next I would like to welcome Tink-Sonia from http://minitink.blogspot.com/
Tink is another very talented miniaturist- she makes a lot of her minis herself and recently has a lot of gorgeous pictures of her dollhouse. I have not finished going back in entries to look at all of her projects- but her blog is great and if you have not visited her I would take a look. I am going back to look more as soon as I catch up with everything! Thank you for visiting Tink- I am glad to meet you!

I would also like to welcome Claudia from http://mockingbirdhillcottage.blogspot.com/
I adore Claudia's blog. I don't often comment on her blog- but I read all of her posts. Claudia has a wonderful sense of style- the sweetest dogs ever and a beautiful garden. I can never resist a blog that shares garden pictures. Claudia's blog is truly beautiful and if you are ever having a bad day you can visit her and feel picked right up just from the pictures. Thank you for visiting me Claudia!!
