Oh my, it's been a very BIG 24 hours here! Yesterday morning, a most wonderful present arrived from the wonderful Mitsy of Art Mind. I was undoing the layers of divine packaging with exclamations of delight and disbelief at how incredibly generous she is. Suddenly, I remembered that I should be taking photos of these goodies before I devoured all the chocolate etc ;) Mitsy had a giveaway (inspired by Lisa from The Red Thread) where she decided to send a thank you gift to the 3 people who commented most on her blog... and I was lucky enough to be one of them. I certainly wasn't expecting so many goodies - isn't she just so lovely?
Look at these divine ceramic pieces with Mitsy's trademark Matryoshka dolls - all with a gorgeous crackle glaze on them. Another flower piece she has put in one of her handmade boxes - did you catch her tutorial on how to make these? Have a peek here.
There were many yummy chocolates... sadly all gone now!
Totally amazing craft supplies, including some crochet cotton... *in love*... felt that Mitsy had dyed herself and some handmade felted coasters with instructions about how to do it myself... *bliss*
And two surprise packages for my girls who got to open them yesterday afternoon and they just love them, Mitsy - thank you so much! Thank you so much for everything Mitsy - I am just blown away by how very lovely you are :)
But wait! There's more... I was just about to blog about this gorgeous girl when another amazing thing happened... My friend from Chicago was suddenly at my doorstep! Surprise! Oh my, it's been 24 hours of partying around here people! Sarah has left now but it's been a big day and a big night, meticulously planned by Sarah and my hubby to my total ignorance, but oh we've had some fun! To say I'm a tad delicate this morning would be an understatement! ;)
So, my creative space? Well, that happened before yesterday obviously! I made my embroidered doily into a brooch.
Find more creative spaces (hopefully smaller ones!) at Kirsty's at Kootoyoo.
Loving your package from Mitsy & super loving your doily brooch.
Wow Kylie! I think your embroidered doily looked great before, but it looks fantastic as a brooch!
And, we all know Mitsy just happens to be lovely, right? But since you are too, I'm so pleased you got something lovely and had a great day x
What lucky girl you are! You have some amazing things there, and I love the doily!

Oh goodness, how terrific. I love ALL the stuff Mitsy sent you... good on you for being such an avid supporter of her talent! And got to love a surprise visit. Happy recovery...
I adore your brooch! When we named our eldest, those colours were what I had in my mind.

Sounds like you have been having some fun. How sweet is your husband to organise something like that for you. :)
Wootwoot, Kylie! I'm so happy it arrived and that you love it all! Can't believe all the chocolate is gone already! But I suppose your friend from Chicago helped you with that! LOL
