Happy Mail Wednesday

Yay another installment of Happy Mail!! I have to admit, I was a tad bit spoiled this week!

I want to start Happy Mail off with this amazingly sweet letter Janel wrote me. I was in tears by the end of it. Thank you Janel for making my day!! I can't wait to see you..TOMORROW!!!!! Love you!!

I also got my Happy Mail package from one of my partners this month, Lehua. She completely spoiled me rotten. Tons of Panda amazingness. Journal she handmade, button photo album, button journal, panda biscuits, panda stickers, Hello Kitty pencils, headband, nail stickers, cute felt, panda deco tape, cute organizer, panda notepad.... wowzers!!! I LOVE LOVE it all!!!

Here is a close-up of the journal she made me, isn't it gorgeous???? I love the wood grain and the flower!!! Thanks so much Lehua!

I had to take a pic of the cute panda printed biscuits. They were so yummy, my favorite of course was the chocolate centered ones. MMMM!!

Gina sent me some surprise Happy Mail, we just so happen to be March happy Mail partners too!! She made me this super adorable Panda journal and this cutey panda pin. It was a very sweet surprise! She has been working on a project with me for a little while and it's coming out so super cute! There are some sneak peeks on her blog, it may or may not have to do with pandas!!!

I also received my Happy Mail package from Laura. She sent tons of stamps, this super cute Mom Journal (which I love to pieces) lots of scrap booking supplies, 10 Reasons Why I Love My Husband scrap booking kit, and some colored envelopes which I'm sure I will be using quite frequently.

I also custom ordered one of her 2010 planners in jumbo size. It turned out amazing! The owl on the front is too cute!!

Every page has some sort of cute embellishment and so much room to write all my stuff out. I love love love it!!! Thanks Laura!!

I also got this sweet cupcake plushie from Cat, I love it!! I have it sitting right next to my laptop on my desk!! I love the sprinkles on the top, such a cute touch! Thanks Cat!

And last, but by far least.. I got a Happy Mail package from of my very good friends Meg. We weren't Happy Mail partners, but we did a "little" swap on our own. When I opened her package, it put me in tears. She bought 2 of my most favorite paintings that I had posted a few posts back!!! OH EM GEEE!!!!! I already have them framed and on my wall. I definitely felt the panda love!!! I got tons of adorable panda notepads, panda paintings, panda scrabble necklace, panda charm (which just so happens I'm in the process of making a panda themed charm bracelet), Panda zipper pouch, panda scrapbooking stuff, panda stamp, panda buttons, tons of cute notebooks and to do pads, she crocheted me the cutest panda bow and Hello Kitty bow (which Kaylee wore last night) as well as the adorable panda necklace, she even bought one of Jamie's super cute embroidered Happy Mail envelopes!!!! Thank you so much Meg, you are amazing. You went above and beyond. Love you Girl and thank you times a million.

Here is the adorable cupcake/panda charm close-up, oh my gosh I LOVE it!!

And here is the cute panda scrabble tile necklace, which I can't get over how cute it is!!

I redid my craft room this week, took down 70% of the stuff that was up there and replaced it or moved things around. I will post pics of my new and improved craft room next week when I get back from the Springfield trip. Can't wait to see everyone!!!! Now to get finished packing and snuggle all my babies before I leave!!!! Wish me luck on the plane ride, I'm absolutely terrified to fly, with very good reason, (but that is for another post).
