It's Here!!!!!

Hello my dear friends,

I am so excited!!!! My gift from Sonya's giveaway at Counting My Blessings has arrived today!!!


Yay!! I have never before won anything like this, so I feel like a child on Christmas morning!! Did I already say this - YAY!!! And please go and take a look at Sonya's blog - she makes the most wonderful things!

So here we go ...

it's a big box and it's all mine!!! (I know, I am now getting carried away -  did I mention - I am so excited!!!)

The wrapping of the box has revealed a nice surprise - it has a beautiful Christmas scenery on it. 

One step at a time and carefully - I can't wait to see whats inside the box and under all this stuffing...

Oh, how beautiful! I saw the pictures of the beautiful creation on Sonya's blog, but the pictures just do not do it any justice at all - it is so BEAUTIFUL!!

Even Alexia the cat likes Sonya's paper!

Another surprise to unwrap - YAY!!! I wonder which treasures this super pink paper is hiding?

Wow! A lovely decorated tin!!! It is so pretty !!!! Time to open it up ....

Oh my, so many little goodies are hiding in here.

And the inside of the tin is just a pretty as the outside.

And look at all the little treasures Sonya has gifted me with. She is such a sweetheart!!!

Another little present to unwrap. I know what it is, I just can't wait to see it!

I LOVE IT!!! It is so sweet and precious!!

I just wanted to show the wrapping paper that was covering the box. I am going to save it and think of how I can maybe reuse it in one of my creations. The paper was in itself a gift!

I also just wanted to show you the wonderful creation in full.

Sonya, you sweet girl, thank you so much for your kindness and your beautiful gifts. You have made me very happy.

And last but not least ...

This is something I picked up yesterday whilst out and about. I think it's lace from a wedding gown or brides vale, but I'm not sure. There was about 10 yards at least in the bag and it's really nicely embellished with pearls and ...

I have made something with some of this lace today and I am writing up a little tutorial for it tonight. That means if you would like to see what I made and how to make it, you will have to check back here very soon.

I hope you have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.
