Think my next step is to order Mo cards from my flickr images now lol Yes we Germans are always far behind all you US people!
In other news I've got some gorgeous parcels this week, oh how I loved to open my mail!
First was a beautiful Collage Elements pack with vintage wallpapers, ribbons, buttons, tickets etc. pp which I've purchased from Jen Duncan's Etsy Shop here: jkduncan58.etsy.com It was the fastest mail I've ever got from the USA, ordered on may 3rd and got it on may 7th! I found Jen's shop and blog through Jenny Heid's Every Day is a Holiday blog here: http://journals.aol.com/jennyeveryday/everyday-is-a-holiday/ who recently made a swap with Jen, if you haven't read about that yet, you should go and do it now, it's her post from April 23rd!
This was already my second order from her Etsy shop because I love her selfmade earrings! She also was so kind to put me 2 vintage postcads in my parcel the first time and a vintage button card for my last order. Thank you so much Louise! Here is a close up of my new earrings which I'm wearing right now along with a matching turqouise t-shirt:
Then I've got a private material swap parcel from my friend Nicole over @ http://www.smalltreasures.blogspot.com/ containing a bunch of small treasures really:
See all the yummy vintage playing cards, buttons, wallpapers, millinery flowers, ribbons etc.pp ! You've made me very happy with this swap parcel dear Nicki! Thanks a million! xox
A closer look:
Nicole has recently opened an Etsy shop too btw called thesmalltreasures.etsy.com where she is also selling her beautiful vintage wallpapers in case you feel the need to get you some! ;-) She also has a give away on her blog at the moment maybe you don't wanna miss that one too!
Lastly I like to thank all you lovely people who have left me so many kind comments to my last 2 posts!
