Early Birthday Treats!

It's my birthday on Wednesday (oh no, not another one so soon!!) and I'm going on holiday Wednesday morning so I decided to open the birthday ATCs (BRAKs) that I have already received today. I guessed that I would be busy packing and clearing up tomorrow so it made sense to open them early - is that a good enough excuse? LOL!!

I was very touched by some beautiful gifts and BRAKs I received and would like to mention a few here. Trudy sent me an early present a few weeks ago - a beauiful Jigsaw Book which has a phenomenal amount of detail including a miniature sewing kit and a gorgeous button fairy on the back. She doesn't have a blog, but has some pictures of it on her Flickr photostream . It is well worth a look, she is a very talented lady.

Talking of talented ladies, there are two more I'd like to mention. Jan who sent me a beautiful pin brooch with an altered scrabble tile (and an ATC with one of her famous image transfers on!), and last but not least, Margaret who sent me the most delightful, colourful wall hanging which I'm calling 'Pink Poodle' even though it probably isn't a poodle at all - but just look at it's face and feet!

I received some beautiful ATCs too (some of which are pictured).

Thank you everyone who took the time to send me things - I feel very humble, but happy!!!!!

I'd also like to take this opportunity to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who has in the past commented on my blog - I'm not sure of the correct blog etiquette to say thank you, but just like you to know they are all appreciated.

OK, end of speech, you can wake up now! See you all in a couple of weeks.
