Catching Up

I've been trying to figure out how to use Photoshop Elements to edit photos I post here on my blog, and let me say it's a challenge. Needless to say, I have a lot of catching up to do!

Recently I was the lucky winner of a giveaway over at Marie's blog, Lost Bird Studio.

This beautiful little bag was stuffed full of the contents you see here and that little sachet she made smells heavenly. If you haven't been to Marie's blog you really need to go and visit her. She makes the most heavenly of creations and is such a sweetie too! Thanks again Marie!!

In addition, I have always admired the lovely work that Viola of Shabby Chic Inspired creates.  So I was so pleased that she was willing to do a swap with me.  These are pictures of the beautiful fabric collage and pillow she made for me.  She also included a lovely soldered charm, fabric printed bird image, and some wonderful German text.  If you haven't been to Viola's blog you really need to go and visit her too.  She is another very talented lady and a wonderful blog friend.

Also, I recently had the opportunity to meet the sweetest blog friend, Jan of The Polka Dot Barn at the KC Willis retreat.  And because she is just the nicest person I have ever met, she sent me a package of goodies.  She made the most adorable cards, and that ledger paper is just to die for!  So if you haven't been over to check out Jan's blog, you really should go and visit her and tell her Hello.  Another of the many talented and sweetest ladies I have met through this wonderful blogging community.

Thanks for stopping by my nest for a visit!

Take Care - Robin
