Catchin up part3: more smiles via the snail mail

So, as I was saying, alotta smiles showed up at the same time. There was an envelope with a beautiful Easter card in it made with me in mind! You should have heard hubby trying to pronounce the last name *giggles*. The back of the envelope had a beautiful embossing on it and a sticker saying this was GOOD mail. Thank goodness. No one likes the bad stuff!
Seriously people, the pictures...no matter HOW good they are...simply do NOT do her cards justice at all. Even with all the details in the pictures, they just do NOT show the craftswomanship (and the love) that goes into these beauties.

I also got a padded envelope from Michabella Creations. Thanks to a giveaway over at blueviolet's blog (which doesnt seem to be up anymore...oh noes!), I was introduced to Michabella's Creations. Part of blueviolet's give away was to visit the MC site and mention something that you liked from the site. You got extra entries if you actually bought something from the MC site as well. After an email with a question about their products got answered how I hoped it would be, I ended up buying one of their necklaces.

I love how they neatly wrapped it like it was a special gift for me. Oh wait, it was...from ME to ME!

I'd seen the piece and it reminded me of a link someone sent me. They'd said they saw the site and the wallpaper or banner on it reminded them of me. I figured after a comment like that and then seeing this piece that maybe I should just out and out buy it for myself. No sense dropping hints, it'd never show up if I did that. The good thing is that I saved some money with the code that blueviolet had had on her site AND free shipping so the item came to under $20 total.

Like Jeannie's cards, pictures simply do not do the piece justice at all! It's made out of bronze with no added metals so it shouldnt tarnish or leave green marks on my skin. And the ribbon the pendant is on? Is actually metal... and so soft. I always have problems with chains because they snarl up in the shorter hairs on the back of my neck. This chain didnt do that at all. There were some earrings to match but since I've allowed the holes in my lobes to close up, I didnt bother getting them.
