A Week of Mail Enchantment!
Over the past 2 weeks I have received so many wonderful delights in the mail, that I had to blog about it! Of course I always received such beautiful works from all the wonderful artists who join the swaps I host and its so hard to part with the goodies and swap them back out, because they are absolutely gorgeous, each and everyone of them. But these past few weeks were different. I was involved with a few one on one swaps, and hosting a Marie Antoinette Collaboration. But the works and surprises that came through my door and the generosity of these artists can't even be described, that's how wonderful they are.

Too start, I received a surprise in the mail from the amazing Scrappy Jessi
Srappy Jessie Barbie Surprise Her acts of kindness and surprises are amazing, receiving this surprise just to make my day was incredible! This cupcake chic atc is sitting on my desk! Thank You Miss Jessi!
Following this beauty were other gorgeous mail packages:
The Little Mermaid

Such as the two fairytale boxes I received from: JoAnn/Take a Break and Marla/CrazyFish666, both were my swap partners in a swap I hosted called: The fairytale Box Swap. JoAnn made me a Thumbelina Shadow Box and Marla made me a Little Mermaid Box, both are in my office on my desk and and hanging from my desk drawer. Thank You JoAnn and Marla: and Now the magic doesn't stop here, I received glorious goodies from Gina Smith, Ann Denise Anderson, Sandy Camarada and MaryAnn McKeating. The pages they each made for the Marie Antoinette Book were absolutely exquisite, divine and regal. The generosity of each of these woman are astonishing. They each make my everyday shine brighter than the next, beauties in our art world, take a look: From top left to right: AnnDenise's pages, Gina Smith pages ,Sandy Camarada pages, A picture of Extra Whimsies from Ann Denise's new Papier Patisserie line, shown on my office shelf along w/a hat she made me some months back and Mary Ann's pages.

For a truely magical experience or two escape into a world of vintage splendor, go and explore one of their wonderful and inspirational sites, Each of these artists create from the heart and fill me with so much joy!

But the excitement didn't stop here. Look at the package of goodies that came with MaryAnn's parcel, She made an extra mermaid atc for me for the seaside pageant atc swap, and sent me a beautiful fairy doll, which is the cutest ever, I have never seen them before, now I'm on a mission to get more, LOL! Thanks for my new obsession MaryAnn! Hugs!

Then These next four pictures show the gorgeous and absolutely brilliant box I received from The Fabulous Bettsi McComb/Tender Arts. We were swap partners in the Marie Antoinette Box Swap hosted by Stink Bone Jones/Jamie. Look at this box, the details, so vintage chic and regal. Love the colors, love the bounty of vintage goodies which accompanied the box, loved the miniarure scene inside the box, Just beautiful! Thank You Dear Bettsi! Take a magical trip over to Bettsi's Blog:

Now look at these pictures, the first one is a picture of the bunny crown and scrumptious goodies that accompanied the crown by the incredible Susie Scott, her works are truly in a league all their own, such a whimsical style with so much joy! I love love love my crown which is right in my office sprinkling me with magic and joy!
In the next picture is the most adorable paperdoll I have seen, made from a seed packet, floral wings, vintage image and paper, its too cute for words and was an extra goodies included in a package from Miss Luna Willowsong, who added it to her mermaid pageant swap package for me, how great is that. I have my dollie in my office as well. Thanks so much Susie and Luna! Visit their sites at:
