Christmas Mail

Hearing the postman pushing mail through the letter box this time of the year is exciting, because instead of the usual junk mail or bills, he delivers Christmas cards! And when the Christmas mail is from faraway bloggy friends, then it is even more exciting. I just received Christmas mail from two wonderful artists. Of course you know both of them, they are much loved in our little corner of Blogland. The first one to be opened was from Lynn Stevens, who shares her art with us on her blog Trash to Treasure Art. Isn't this just the sweetest Christmas ornament? -




She also sent me these gorgeous delicate laces wrapped on a darling little tag-


The ornament is so lovely, I think it will have to stay on display all year round. Thank you so much, Lynn!

I recognised the handwriting on the second envelope straight away. It was from my much loved friend Suzy in Australia. Her creations leave me breathless, they are so beautiful. When you visit her blog Suziqu's Threadworks, you lose yourself for hours in her incredible work. This is the heartachingly beautiful card she sent me -






And she also enclosed these gorgeous images for me to create with -



Love you, girl!!!

I feel very blessed.

Oh Liz....both are beautiful. I follow Lynn's blog and she is a fantastic artist. I will have to check out Suzy but I'm sure I will love her work too.

What a wonderful time of year for you. Hope there are many more special items slipped through that mail slot this week. ^_^

Hugs,
Regi

Such dear and talented women they are.
Suzy's is so gentle and serene and how sweet to include images for you to create with.
I am also lucky enough to have received the same artful treats from Lynn - so precious.
