Happy Mail and Happy Mel

I sent some happy mail last week - to a lovely and talented artistic blogger who was one of my earliest blog friends (we came across each other during Blogtoberfest 2009 - I was lucky enough to win the most *amazing* prize from her with my Joyful Mel doll). My Creative Beast friend put out a plea - a call for help to get her through a difficult last few weeks at work. I was glad to help, of course :)

Now, the reason I'm telling you all this is that I was a bit rubbish and didn't manage to send my mail till Wednesday last week..... And I'm in the UK, and The Creative Beast is in the US - and the West Coast, at that! So imagine my surprise when she emailed me to let me know that it had arrived on Friday?! That's amazing service, I'm very impressed! (I also sent a few bits and pieces to people who live a bit closer than that, but I suspect not many of them arrived so quickly!)

(I'd hoped to show you a pic of what I'd made for her, but unfortunately I can't remember which folder I put that particular photo into, *doh!*)

And then on Saturday, I was fortunate enough to receive some happy mail of my own :) Many thanks to Jacky, who sent me this rather lovely memory booklet:


And look at how beautifully it was packaged!



Jacky, thank you so much :) It was a lovely surprise, and really made me smile :) And I already have plans for the memory keeper! xx

Oh happy mail - so much fun. That is great packaging from Jacky; I like the map paper for the envelope, must remember that.

How wonderful for you Mel! Jacky did a fabulous job! Now that our postal strike is over I just might get some things sent off :)

WOW! That is one BEAUTIFUL memory book you received, though I almost love the packaging more than the gift!! ;)

BTW: I'll be posting about your lovely mail art you sent me this week Mel. Thank you for sending it! It made my week!
