Secret Santa 2014

IMG_7784I just got one of the most amazing happy mail ever!! Like the year before, last year I joined Secret Santa event which was participated by Studio Calico ladies. I love joining event like this cause I love making a sort of care package for my recipient. Though its actually nerve racking whether or not my recepient would love or hate what I would choose for her based on the list of her likes and dislikes. I like the Studio Calico community wherein people are always so helpful and generous! Who in their right mind would not like ladies like that right? Certainly not me. I actually think I have a Studio Calico addition cause every time I go online I always check out the forum just to pop in and see what the ladies are talking about.

This year though my package came late, it took almost 3 months to get here. I just got it yesterday! I love how thoughtful my secret santa is! She read in the forum that I was asking about advent calendars how I never had one and she made me one! She sent me this heavy box filled with 24 amazing scrapbook supplies!!!
I was planning to open 1 item per day throughout the month of March. Just ONE! Well, that plan lasted 2 days. Yesterday morning, I opened my second present and its a cute velvet covered notebook with a rustic pencil, very cute! Last night when I got home from a tiring workday and needed some pick me up, I opened another present…and another and another till all of the, are open! Oh my gosh! I just could not believe all the scrappy presents that I got!!
I even got this old school Studio Calico wood handle Happy Mail stamp!! Woohoo! Ive been looking everywhere for it! But wait there is more I got neocolors!!! I’ve been wanting to try these for a while I just didn’t get around to it, now I got no excuse. I almost squeeled when i saw my neocolors and definitely muttering “Oh My God…..amazing!!” Thank you!! Zitronenfalter 🙂
Will definitely do this again! I love exchanging with international fellow scrapper cause I get to receive products that I cannot get locally! I love that my box are filled with different assortments and different brands.

Freckled Fawn First Online Annual Sale

ImageFor a scrapbooker like me, who reads and talks about scrapbooking tp anyone who would listen, this pink fawn is an absolute favorite! Known in the scrapbook world for their awesome and cute embellishments, almost anyone I know sings their praises. Now of course for me cuteness is not the only factor, I have to think about the shipping fee. I always told myself that I don’t need those cute embellishments what I get from my Studio Calico Project Life subscription kit is more than enough. It is but sometimes you want to add that extra something, in my case a wood veneer is always good. In my eyes it adds a cuteness factor that I can’t get from a chipboard.
