Home Again

I am finally back home again after a nearly two week vacation!  I put 1700 miles on the wonder I'm exhausted.  It was great to spend time with family in Tennessee and Georgia.  Man was it hot down there!

While I was gone a package arrived for me.  My husband, who had to stay behind and work, put the box up in my craft room.  It was killing me that it was sitting up there for over a week without me.  What's so special about this package?  Well, waaay back in February I won the egg hunt contest that was part of Papertrey's 3rd anniversary.  The prize was two stamps sets, the Egg Hunt paper pack and a basket of eggs filled with ribbon, buttons, inks, and other goodies.  The stamps and paper arrived after three weeks, but the basket never did.  I waited the six weeks that I was supposed to wait and then contacted PTI's customer service.  Long story short, the first basket went MIA between Nichole Heady's house and mine.  A couple of emails back and forth and Nichole sent a second basket my way.  It was so worth the wait.  Tons of ribbons and buttons and other goodies!  Check it out:

See that envelope with my name on it?  It's a handwritten card from Nichole herself!  Remember this card she made for the Delightful Dahlia introduction?  So cool to get this from her.

Now I just have to find my mojo again and get crafty.
