Goodies in the mail!

Got some goodies in the mail this week from a couple of my internet pals. First here's a wonderful wee journal from MA in Canada. It's all handmade especially for me! It is truly a tiny (4X3") treasure and will be displayed proudly in my display case where I keep all my best treasures.
MA filled the journal with inspiring quotations and decorated it in some of my very fave colors - oceanic blue and copper. Thanks MA!!

And I got this very cool smudge stick from Yvonne in Texas. She made it just for me from wild Texas sagebrush which "transforms energy and brings change". When I opened the box, the wonderful subtle fragrance of the sage wafted out - it'll probably make my whole display case smell nice! Thanks Yvonne!!

Okay, so how do I get these great gifts? I ask! I just love treasures handmade by friends, so I just ask them to make them for me. And then I make something special for them, which is the other half of the fun! And don'tcha love getting something good in the mail?

Glad you like your wee journal Gail! It was great fun to make. I actually think I might do a few more.
The smudge stick is wonderful...I can almost smell it from here!!

I agree, there is nothing like goodies in the mail; especially presents from friends! :)

Glad you like the smudge stick Gail. The Indian maiden on the tag is a photo I took in Santa Fe. She was the first Indian woman to be declared a saint.
