I love to get mail.
Love is putting it lightly, even.
I freakin' LOVE getting mail.
When I was a kid, I bought a little book at the school book fair, called "Free Things For Kids Through The Mail."
I sent away for every single thing in that book. Even for the free pamphlet, "Puberty And You, Girls!"
As usual, I digress.
And before you have to ask me, yes- I talk like I type- just like a rambling drunk lounge singer from the late 50's.
I love to get mail. Imagine my surprise at such a mail-filled week!
The week started off with a package from one of my greatest friends from Scrapbook.com, the lovely Scrap Princess. Her stuff is pictured on the left up there... She sent a beautiful card and some great Halloween die-cuts, some very nice movie theatre themed cuts, and some cool black paper flowers. I love the Halloween die cuts! They're from the Slice Halloween cartridge. Really made me regret not buying the Slice when it (and cartridges) were all on clearance at Michaels. I still remember myself standing in front of the entire display. I even had the box and a few cartridges in my hands. But then, something masquerading as common sense took over and said- you have a Cricut, you have a Cricut Expression 2, and you barely use those- so why bother buying THIS? You'll not only want the Slice but then you'll want every cartridge, just so they look good lined up so DON'T GET IT. Dammit. Kory loves you, Princess!
THEN- just when I'd barely got over the buzz of mail from the Princess, I get a message from The Ellen Bee. Yes, the ELLEN from The Women's Waiting Room. What they're waiting on, I don't really want to know- but she has a fun blog and I'd won a RAK just from leaving a comment! And you know what it was that I won? A great envelope full of fun! It's all on the right in the above photo. I love everything- especially the tombstone embellishment, and especially the octopus charm! Actually, I really freakin' love every one of these charms, and I'm afraid she's started a new collecting obsession- but really: check out this octopus!!!
Isn't that terrific?! I can't wait to find a place for him!
And then, the week ended with an envelope full of unmounted rubber stamps. I got these for free, from Viva Las Vegas Stamps, just for adding their blinkie to my blog. Now, I wouldn't have done this if I hadn't been to their site and LIKED their stamps. They have an ADULTS ONLY section of stamps, dammit! And the free baggie of stamps didn't disappoint. My top favorites are the set of Scrabble tile alphabet stamps and one little treasure that says STAMP SLUT.
So there you have it- a week full of fun mail! Thank you, Princess, Ellen, and Viva Las Vegas Stamps!
