God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say "thank you?" ~William A. Ward

Thank goodness it is Friday! What a week. Way too much drama for my liking! Drama at home, drama at work, drama with out of state family. Oy! The good thing is I won’t bore you all with it & it appears that everything is working it’s self out. Well there will always be the drama at work, I mean come on I work with the DQ (Drama Queen). How could there not be?!

So even though the rest of my world was in upheaval this week the mail was kind to me.

I received my March Coloriffic Swap-o-rama package, blues & greens, from Lyn of Florspace. Thank you!!!

What a package it is!
Coloriffic Swap-o-rama ~ March 2007 - Rec'd

She made me a monogrammed bag & some adorable cloth coasters! (I have had these on the to do list for months, yeah I can check them off!).

There is candy, bittersweet chocolate (yum!), beads(love love love em), a mechanical pencil (I can never have enough of these!), a bandana, a teddy bears, wooden box, crocheted flower, cell phone leash (great idea!), fabric & a really pretty zipper pouch. Can you ever have too many bags of assorted sizes? I don’t think so!

I love the fabric My favorite is the one on the far right, but they are all so pretty!:

Also I might add that she has an Etsy Shop with some really cute pouches & bags, incase you are looking for a little something or a great little gift. Thanks Lyn!

Then I the other night I get home & John asks me who I know in New Mexico (other than the people that he knows too that is). Of course I told him my Sugar Daddy (don't I wish!!!) I look at the fat little envelope & realize that it’s from Raesha! I opened it up to find this:
CAOK ~ From Raesha!

I was so surprised to be on the receiving end of Raesha’s CAOK! I am so touched that she thought to include me. I love the papers that she sent & the card is adorable! It has my favorite Black Capped Chickadee on it! I am supposed to send him on to someone else. Hmmmm……..
I know that she off on vaca with little Miss S but Thank You Thank You, Sweet lady!

If you aren’t familiar with the term check out African Kelli who started, CAOK ~ Calculated Acts Of Kindness. I know that this has been said a lot lately but Bloggers are the nicest most generous people! My only regret is that we all don’t live in the same neighborhood!

I hope that everyone else had as sweet a spot in there week!

Wow--love the color swap, I haven't heard of that one---hmmmm might have to try to get in one of the months, especially with such a lovely package, it's very tempting. Sorry you are going through some chaos lately, the package(s) arrived just in the nick of time to give you a little bit of sunshine!

don't you just hate the DQ's of the office??? They just drain everyone! I'm lucky with the staff I have now, everyone is great....but I've definitely had my share of the meenie weenies in the past!

LLA said...

ugh. Sorry to hear about all the drama... Hopefully this weekend will be sewing filled, and drama-free!

Such lovely goodies in the mail - *that's a promising start to the weekend, no???

The chickadee is just adorable - and you are a far nicer person than me! I don't know that I could bear to pass it along. (but that's just me. I'm selfish. And I like Chickadees!) :)

Hi, You have posted tons and tons since I last read! I didn't get to the fabric store Material World because I forgot the address at home on the continent. I was actually in very close vicinity last night because I visited my relatives in Acton, no trains ran, what a pain. But definitely next time. Today I went to Adornment at Battersea, fabulous African fashion show on the runway, my first visit but I will go again. Check Gizella's fashion, hand painted fabrics, yummy yummy yum!
