Happy Mail!

I casually mentioned to Annette that the beautiful tag book that she'd made would be a great thing to replicate and use to store ATCs from our upcoming fifth anniversary.  And of course, filed another note on the mental 'to do' list. 
Completely out of the blue, Gordon the Post has delivered the very tag book to me all the way from Australia.  I'm thrilled skinny. Well slim.  Skinny isn't going to happen.
beautiful papers, fabulous finishes, isn't it lovely?
And a post-it holder and ATC for the Anniversary..
Thank you Annette. I really like it and really appreciate your generosity. Please bear in mind that whilst finding time to make this, let alone run out and invest in posting it, Miss Annette has just unpacked from movinghouse and is now, suddenly, re-packing to move across the world. So how come I don't have those pressures and as yet haven't managed so much as five minutes at my desk since last Thursday.  Time management.  If I had time, I'd learn it.

That is a cool ATC holder and very sweet of Annette to give it to you. Did she have a tutorial?

Gosh, Annette's one busy crafter - and that book is lovely. I'm making something similar to send to my swap partner (the one who comes after me on WOYWW - unfortunately couldn't do one for everyone who wants to swap). See you tomorrow. Chris xx

What lovely post! That Annette is one very clever girl. They always say if you want something done ask a busy person - but then you know that too don't you. x Jo

I commented when I saw it on her blog how it would be great to hold ATCs. How little I knew at the time!! Yes, she is one really extraordinary person! How wonderful that she made it for you.

I made a holder when Redanne came on a visit, they are quite complex to make but well worth the effort. Yours is gorgeous. Aren't crafters generous people x
