A Very Good Mail Day

Last week I mailed off a batch of postcards for Sian's Pile of Postcards Valentines Exchange. That same day Barbara emailed asking for my address. When I replied to her, I joked that I would be stalking my mailbox . . . but as is becoming more common around here, I completely forgot about it!

Until today . . . when my mailbox was overflowing with happy mail! The package from Barbara contained a vintage Valentine and two cute blocks that are now displayed in my craft room. So perfect for my year of INSPIRATION - thanks Barbara!

My first two postcards also arrived today - a wonderful classic heart print from Ally and a fun Hello with a British feel from Mel! Thanks ladies!!

And that's not all - I also had a handmade card from my friend Carrie in my pile of mail today! I met Carrie last year when she took my Christmas Cards With a Texas Twist class at Scrappin' Goodtime and we recently enjoyed visiting and laughing and crafting together again at the Valentine's Day Card Class. Thanks Carrie!

It was definitely a good mail day around here! Have you found anything good in your mailbox lately?
