Rubber Art Stamping & Card Making.

WOYWW #220

Good Morning to all of you visiting from Auntie Julias, at The Stamping Ground. What do I have for this weeks Show & Tell, then? Possibly a bit photo- heavy, (sorry Julia) but quite reasonable when you see them: My super- special parcel arrived from Kimmie  Hogan- you remember the draw she did a few weeks ago,which I was lucky enough to win. It actually arrived last week, amazingly enough on my birthday, but I had to wait a few days to go get it from the sorting office. On the birthday note, thanks to everyone, from both of us, for all the lovely birthday wishes!

One parcel, duly opened. A lovely little note from Kimmie, the Smash Book, and another package of goodies. How much awesomeness can you fit  into one package? This much:

Lots of stamps, some flowers, the tiniest notepad I've ever seen,some ephemera invoices and look at the gorgeous colour of those tags, they're fabric too!

Nope, not done yet.

More stamps, stickers, doilies and a humungous tag!The tags are ace, you just want to stroke them all day, lol.


A gorgeous envelope, filled with exciting stuff:

Tags, pockets & butterflies.

Nope, we're not done yet.

Opening the Smash Book, I found these amazing dictionary pages, and papers.
  So cool, its an illustrated dictionary.

Here are a couple of shots of the Smash Book:

And here it all is, a desk full of amazing stuff! Kimmie, thank you so much- I never expected so much awesomeness. Now I just have to get my ass in gear, and start my Book.
WOYWWers are the most wonderful people!

So much stuff to play with and things to do. Im so happy for you. Im slowly making my way down the list, it seems to take for ever. Have a good day and bright blessings to you and your Roberta 26

Maisie Moonshine said...

Hi Shaz, get that kettle on girl I'm coming over to play! Fab gorgeous goodies you lucky, lucky girl!

Thanks for your visit, and I reckon just thinking about the C-mas word is a great start! Believe me if my first fair wasn't 2nd of Nov I wouldn't be thinking about it either - but I've got sooo much to do and nothing is a 5 minute project. Have a happy week - keep thinking summery thoughts - one of us has to! MMx #33

Julie Ann Lee said...

Wow! This is such a great parcel from Kimmie. She is so lovely. I am a little bit worried 'cos she hasn't appeared this week and I believe she's been a bit poorly. I will look out for her next time and maybe email her. Sorry I did not get round to everyone for a few weeks - life's busy and I'm finding it hard to keep up! Happy WoYWW. Julie Ann xx #35

~Rasz~ said...

Hi Shaz!!!! Congrats on winning the giveaway and on your birthday too. I can't believe all the stuff Kimmie got into that parcel! Wow, you are one lucky lady. You're going to show us lots of stuff next week that you made from your surprise, right? Rasz #123

Ali H said...

Hi thanks for stopping by earlier ! What a truly amazing parcel - you will have hours of pleasure from all those yummy things ! Ali #30

Shoshi said...

Wow Shaz, what a wonderful parcel to share with us on WOYWW, and how generous of Kimmie! I couldn't believe how much was packed in there - sort of Tardis parcel? Beautiful stuff, particularly those tags.

Thanks for your lovely comment - so glad you're enjoying my journey to my new ARTHaven! I so agree about wanting everything within reach! I am sure it will take me a while to organise everything just how I want. I've got a day over there tomorrow and should make good progress on it.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #94

Danie May said...

Wow is right, what a fabulous bundle of goodies, definitely happy happy mail there. Can't wait to see you put it to good use. Have a great week! Danie #17

Julia Dunnit said...

it is a wonderful lovely gift,how thoughtful...from where I'm sitting it appears to be good karma gal, it comes back to those that share it. isn't the illustrated dictionary fab... And therein lies the true generosity..I may have had trouble sharing that!!

scrappystickyinkymess said...

Crikey - that is on package that anyone would love to receive. Fabulous array of goodies and an't wait to see what you make of them :) Happy Birthday again!

Happy (better late than never) WOYWW!

fairy thoughts said...

Hi Shaz
wow that is a fantastic goodie box I bet you don't know where to start, I would just keep them on my desk for a while to look at them.
thanks for the tips on the blogger issues I will look into the live writer and hopefully get it sorted
janet.... only a bit late

Rita said...

OMGosh! What a wonderful package to receive on your birthday! She really packed a ton of goodies in there. Awesome! Thanks for stopping by my blog. WOYWW#120 :)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

You're as lucky this week as I was last week. Kimmie can sure pack a lot in a package, can't she? BTW, I was shocked at the cost of postage. That was more money than I spend on a month's groceries! Happy slightly belated WOYWW from #10.

BJ said...

Mega WOW win there, super green here! Love my Anita's glue for the solid "not coming apart" sticking but YES a pain to get the stuff out. I have to stick a pin in it every time to get it going. Did add some water to the mix but that hasn't helped. Always more of a pain as the bottle empties, less weight I suppose. Thanks for visiting me despite me being SO late BJ #132

Kimberly Hogan said...

Hi Shaz, I'm sooo happy you got your package for your birthday. I'm relieved that you enjoyed all the goodies. I see all the beautiful cards and tags you make and wanted to include some fun things you can use for creating them. I'm excited to see what you come up with. Aren't those canvas tags awesome. I have 2 giant 1920's dictionaries that I pulled those pages from, if you'd like more let me know and I'd be more than happy to send you some. I have way more than I could ever use. I didn't get a post up this week, and didn't visit much in the past few weeks either. I have not been feeling all that well, I am definitely trying to make my rounds though, I miss everyone… I hope you are having a fab weekend. (((HUGS)))

Fiona@Staring at the Sea said...

Wow! What wonderful happy mail to receive and on your birthday too xx

I only bought a couple of stamps this time. My money went on stencils and mask, and then on paint and inks, and some Perfect Pearls. We got a pack of top quality tracing paper with a set of alcohol inks, which was a nice bonus. I have emailed the technical department. You are very welcome to join him when he comes and you can see my new stash and what we did with all those things. xx Maggie
