Happy Mail!

It's always a good mail day when you get cards or letters (do people even WRITE anymore?)...but when you get presents, it's even better.

And when you get presents from internet friends, know you've ARRIVED in the blog/internet world, lol!

I got this lovely package from Charmaine over at Oodabug Alley. I found her blog by accident, through someone who knew someone who knew her. I LOVE, absolutely ADORE her cards. She has time to post and make one nearly every day. Charmaine participates over at Splitcoast Stampers, where she does their challenges all the time. And this with THREE children, the youngest having been born on November 17, and she was back to posting on her blog by the 21st!

Anyway - Charmaine and I have a little in common. The 'Burgh is the first connection...she's from there, and I love it there, because that's where we spend a lot of our vacation time (and that's where Scott's family is, of course!). She and her hubby are both musical, talented and quite obviously, artistic. We've chatted about the similiarities of our lives, musically, theatrically, etc. And I feel blessed to count her as a friend. When her birthday rolled around, I sent her a little gift. And she remembered mine, too! Since we are quite often (well, for US anyway) in PA, we'll eventually get to meet each other...I'm hoping for this summer, for sure!

Charmaine - thanks for all the great goodies - can't wait to put them to use...I think you captured all my favorites!
