Incredibly blessed!

Hi ya'll...

So, have you ever just felt incredibly blessed by this hobby papercrafting fun addiction of ours?
Well Tuesday was one of those blessings days for me - let me tell you about it!

We pick up our mail at the Post Office in town.  Every. Day. Every. Day. Ho hum,
especially this time of year, when the lines are out the door, and down the steps!
It's about a five mile drive, and by the time I get there, I'm usually thinking of the 1001 things 
I need to be doing!  So....by the time I actually get my mail, I'm working on a tiny bit of grumpy.

Well........Tuesday was so NOT a grumpy mailbox day!  

Let me show you what was in there!

First, a padded envelope.  Nope - not showing you that....lol.

When I opened the envelope, this absolutely adorable tag was inside...


Those of you that know me, know how much I love me a cute snowman, and this
sweet feller even has googly eyes!  Be still my heart!

The note on the back of the tag was so very sweet.  I actually teared up.

Under the tag (which was gift enough!) was this sweet envelope (and just look at the
teensy tiny Patti tag!!!!!):


Inside the pretty black envelope were these beautiful doilies - look at the colors...OH MY GOODNESS!  I cannot wait to glue them to something :)


To my online friend, Taunya, a huge thank you!  You are one of the sweetest
bloggers that I've every had the pleasure to visit with, and I'm so grateful
that our paths have crossed!  To all of you out there in Blogland, if you have
never checked out Taunya's blog, you should!  She is so generous, and has such a 
creative mind - I'm inspired each time I go.  

Thanks for letting me share my happy mail with you!

Hugs to all,
Patti J.
