Halloween Mail Art - Received



Hello Peeps!!

I finally have something I can blog about.
Did you miss me?!

Time to show you what this secret stitching was all about:
The Halloween Mail Art exchange!!!

Well, this first part is about the mail I have received...

oOoOo
 
My Halloween mail art was put together by Mary

She has come up with the most delightful creation!
Her little witch is just spook-tastic

Love the goodies that were included in the envelope too!

Mary made a boo-tiful card...
 

 
and also included a notebook with a handmade cover
Great attention to details! It looks so pretty & tiny.
 

 
Thank you Mary!
I was really pleased with my mail art.
You are a talented lady & I'm so happy
to have a few of your creations in my possession.
 
oOoOo
 
I have also received a surprise package
from Maria, one of the participant to this exchange.
 
She kindly sent a few Halloween extras,
in way of saying thank you for organizing this swap.
 
Thank you again sweetie!
 
 
 
oOoOo
 
Thank you again to the lovely ladies who have taken part in this swap.
Stay tuned, next post will be about my make!
 
Toodles,
Mii x
