of course the appropriate time to have posted pics of my lovely xmas RAKs would've been LAST weekend...but some of us are not quite as organized as that, so better late than never, i say; i definitely received some GLORIOUS handmade cards this year, and some highly drool-worthy goodies!

here they are in reverse alphabetical order, as windows 7 makes it very hard to move photos around inside the blogger window...and also i cannot seem to cut and paste in compose mode; whereas i can still do both easily on my laptop, which runs windows XP. if anyone has had a similar issue and/or knows WHAT TO DO about it, i'd looooooove to hear it!!!

terrie sent me lovely bling... (it's actually meant to be WORN on the skin--we're trying to decide if anyone has ever DONE SO outside of las vegas city limits?!) ...and cool stickpins...and awesome earrings i've already worn!

stef ROCKED the book selection...times two...and found these fabulous textured chipboard shapes that i cannot wait to spray and dab and generally make a BIG GIANT MESS with!

june and amy both made gloriously sparkly cards that you will see me steal...AHEM..."pay tribute to"...later this year!!! ;)

heidi was workin' a fab retro vibe...and sent lots of lovely scrappy goodies...including some of her coveted textural woodgrain cardstock... (i feel a serious ADDICTION coming on!!!)

gina hand-carved this GORGEOUS robin stamp...which you'll be seeing a lot of in future weeks... (A LOT!) (no, seriously!!!)

the lovely debb made the lauren-iest card in the universe... (i am pastin' it into my art journal...if i can ever bear to take it off my desk!) ...
and shared her fabulous die-cutting wisdom--& DIES!--not to mention
making me my very own army of cardstock robots!!! (& this was before she even KNEW about the crobots!)

thank you
VERY much indeed!!!


  1. Oh, you lucky duck. That is some cool loot!

    As for your predicament Windoze 7 (which I was happy to avoid), switch to HTML mode in Blogger and try to cut and paste. Even with XP, I find it is much cleaner to move photos around in HTML mode.

  2. I love seeing what people get.. Thanks for sharing:)

  3. what a fabulous haul, girl! woot!
    i spy some AC remarks stickers in there - THOSE are my fave crafty items in 2009, hands down! you will love/rock them.

    and i'd been eyeballing that Gina stamp for a while, considering purchasing it for m'self! HA! she certainly sent it to a worthy recipient who will TOTALLY do it justice.

    it's january, by the way. did you notice that? whatcha gonna do about it?

  4. Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!

  5. Wow girlie!! You made out! Thanks for the shout out. I can't wait to see what you do with all your new prezzies!! :) Esp. my stamp. hahaa

  6. So fun seeing your fab goodies. I have to say that Debb wins hands down for Laureniest card. LOVE it!!!

  7. Wow, look at all the goodies! You must have been very good this year! Can't wait to see the fabby stuff you make with that haul!
