Lovely Mail

We've been fortunate enough to get some lovely mail recently. Karen from Sewmuch2luv opened her own Etsy shop. We purchased two of her beautiful owl pincushions. They arrived last weekend and are just so sweet! Nature Girl picked out the blue owl for her birthday. She squealed when it arrived and spent hours playing with both owls.

She took lots of pictures, found furniture for them and just had fun playing with them. Nature Girl has no intentions of sticking pins in her owl, she's using him as a softie instead. I can't say that I blame her as the owls are truly lovely with beautifully hand stitched embroidery patterns on their wings. Each owl is unique. I have to admit that I haven't stuck pins in mine yet either, I think he might be too cute to pick!

The package Karen sent was beautifully wrapped in tissue paper with stickers that match her shop logo. Karen definitely puts together a wonderful package! She's thought of all of the little details that make for a lovely shopping experience. She just added a lovely little gnome pincushion to her shop. Go take a peek at her shop now, you'll be glad you did!

Now I have to brag for a minute. I recently won two giveaways. That's right two! I won this beautiful snowflake ornament from Val as part of the Year of Enchantment January swap. It arrived on Monday and is beautiful. I still need to get my YOE tree put up so I can put my new ornament on it. The second giveaway was Karen's. She did a giveaway where she chose several winners to receive a random crafted surprise this year. I was lucky enough to win! It's very exciting to win two giveaways! I feel very fortunate! Of course when you're fortunate enough to win you have to share the love so don't forget to enter our random bits of crafty mail giveaway. We'll choose three winners on February 20th.
