Gifts Galore in the Mail!

It felt like Christmas when I arrived home after school today and found several packages and a box.
I had won a couple of  contests and was involved in a couple of  trades.

I received my book in the Spring Book and Bookmark exchange (through Jen at "Teach Mentor Texts") . I received:

The Fault in Our Stars by John Greene. Of course I had to start right away - I am enjoying it so far.

 
 
Thanks to Mary Klepper for the lovely book and 2 bookmarks! Love them all!
 
 
 
Jessica Sporn held a giveaway and I won her hamsa stencil. I can't wait to use it with the gelli plate! I love it!
Thanks Jessica!
 
 
 
 
I joined Paper Traders a shorty while ago  and have tried a couple of challenges so far. I took part in their bloghop  and actually won their first PT Blog Hop giveaway! Today I received this beautiful tag from Cathy Calamas.  I especially love the message!
 
 
 
Thanks so much Cathy!
 
 
One of the trades I took part in was for collage items through ATCsforAll.  Toni Cooper sent me a huge number - lots of images to use for art and collage.
 
 


 Thanks Toni!


Blogland is so full of wonderfully generous, and creative people. Thanks to all these wonderful ladies, as well to the people who stop by and leave such encouraging comments. I really does make my day when I read a comment or receive something special in the mail.

Wow-what a lovely group of gifts to receive in the mail! The Fault In Our Stars is a wonderful book, Beverley. I hope you like it, too! Can't wait to see what you do with that stencil.

Me too, can't wait to see how you use the stencil with the gelli plate.
