I don't hate Mondays

Each time I reached into the box i kept finding a prettier package---is that possible?  But look what a wonderful presentation this was.  I was going to be a tease and not show what was in the packages until the next day.  I changed my mind as I started opening.  I couldn't wait to show you and put all of it on my Inspiration Board.  I feel like a Queen.  Two packages in one day and they are both perfect for me.

This was a bits and baubles collage swap.  Samantha went over the top and sent these spectacular gifts also.  The tags she also included were from Bluebird Lane.  I am going to have to check them out. 
Samantha, you are so talented!!!!!  I love this.  Thank you so much for being such a wonderful swap partner.  You were so generous.  
My swap partner for the pink and green swap was April Ortiz from artchics.  I knew she was going to be a great partner from her blog.  Everything including her logo labels are pink and green.  I really can't believe I had the self control not to rip open all of the packages.  Thank you April for being such a great swap partner.
I love the birdie and the bird house.  That will be my theme next month for my inspiration board.
Oooooh, I just love everything and needed whatever I recv'd.  I even rev'd another chipboard box to alter.
I had to put the little pink and green suitcase on top of my crop case----Am I going to be the envy of every cropper or what?
I have few words for my swap partners, because I am in awe!!!!!!!  Oh my gosh, I am like a little kid at Christmas.  Taking pictures was torture....I just wanted to open everything right away.  I did take pictures.  It was like stopping and smelling the roses.  Whatever I planned to do today came to complete stop.  I changed my inspiration board right away while I was inspired and in the mood.  Happy Monday or Happy Swapday or Happy Mood Board day or whatever your day was I hope it was happy.

Happy, happy! I just love to see all of the gorgeous goodies people send in a swap or happy mail. It amazes me how happy it makes the giver and the receiver. This community of creative women has forever changed me from a lonely isolated woman to a very happy and grateful woman. Thanks for sharing your goodies with us.
