A wonderful Surprise

Yesterday when we came home from our walk my neighbour said he had taken in a parcel for me that wouldn't go through the postbox. I had no idea what it could be but when I saw it I realised it was from a very special crafter and the box was decorated and there were lots of wonderful stamps on it as well, I will be using those for craft projects :) The package was from Valerie in Germany and I was one of the lucky people that she drew out to win something-thank you so much Valerie.

The wonders inside the box

Some wonderful makes by Valerie and other treasures as well. There was also a cotton bag with a lighthouse on it but already that is in use with things in it for our holiday so I forgot to add it to photographs. We don't go until next Friday but as everything we take has to fit into 2 rucksacks and a small bag each, I get organised early lol.

Thank you for your friendship and kindness Valerie and for all the inspiration  from your wonderful blog posts. Also all the encouragement you have given me here on my blog and at the Hatters.

Love Chrissie xx
