Little House...and Gifts!

I made a tiny house today for a change. I decided to use colours I wouldn't normally choose, as a challenge. Its quite thick and looked better standing up, so I glued a piece of card on the back to help it.

I've made some lovely new friends through the Soul Journal, including Vicki at
She was kind enough to give me an award yesterday! I am very honoured to receive another one of these. Thank you Vicki; I shall be a regular visitor to your blog.

Another surprise today was a parcel from Australia! My lovely friend Jacky (who is also doing the journal) sent me some amazing things, for which I can't thank her enough. I love her Klimt dolls (such a beautiful face) and the wonderful ATC has its own stand! And that wasn't all - she also sent me chipboard shapes to play with. (I used one of the little house shapes today.)

You are so kind Jacky, thank you.

Well, if that wasn't enough, I also received gifts from Jaqi yesterday (different spelling!). I admired her Beatles and Raven ATCs, which she kindly sent to me as swaps and included bags of gems, sequins and flowers as well. Oooh, and I nearly forgot, she also sent lovely papers and postcards. (See the background on my little house, Jaqi.)

I'm so lucky to have met such great people through my blog.
