lovely prizes!

it was another great mail week in these parts! i received my prize from the lovely ladies of sketchy thursdays, which was this gorgeous unity stamp set i can't wait to use!

i got my copy of randi feuerhelm-watts' completely awesome "wide open" art journaling set (this was a prize i actually awarded myself, in recognition of...ummmmmmm...extremely good internet shopping skills!) :)

my *TWO* utterly fab gauche alchemy color kits came (with many thanks again to the gals at the creative type!) and even the packaging on these was cool enough to need its own photo:

yeah--they're wrapped in a vintage pattern and tied with luscious lace! but trust me, they're equally cool unwrapped...see?!

oh and not to be outdone, lovely husband jeff received a very nice wristwatch as a gift from his employer, in celebration of his tenth year with the company. i don't have a pic because he's actually both at work and WEARING the watch at the moment, so you'll just have to take my word that it is--much like LHJ himself--stylish as well as practical! but here's the thing i wanted to show you; being a not inexpensive gift, the box in which the watch arrived was carefully sealed with special "tamper-proof tape". impressive that the shippers are so painstaking, eh?

it worked perfectly, too--i am happy to report that there was absolutely NO TAMPERING with the hinge of the box*!!! :)

*there was no tampering with any part of the box, for that matter; i just found this somewhat hilarious, while at the same time really hoping that this company is only responsible for securing watches and not nuclear power plants or airports or anything, lol! :)


  1. WOW. Really great and well deserved prices. I need to take a look at Amazon to check out those books. Looking forward to se what you will create with you prizes. Well done on LHJ with his celebration. Wishing you both a great sunday!

  2. Okay that book looks so cool! you'll have to tell me what you think. If it has any secret skills to art journaling I hope to see your new knowledge! :) I can't wait. As for your loot, well too cool!!! You lucky duck. Great stuff.

  3. omg, lookitchoo with the goods, girlfriend!
    you'll love that little {ippity} set - i play with it quite often!

    i grabbed something for you yesterday and will be mailing you sumpin SCHWEET, so watch for more happy mail! xo

  4. Happy Mail all around this week, YEAH! What a nice collection of new stuff. Can't wait to see what you do with it!

  5. LOL! Maybe they thought all that big, bold, red lettering would simply frighten any would-be Pilfer-ers away, making it totally unnecessary to actually apply the tape to the correct part of the box. Just sayin'!

    Hooray for happy mail!
