A Long Time Coming

I finally have it.
A package mailed from California on July 16th 
by Sharon at A Fanciful Life.
 At the end of June, I left a comment on one of Sharon's posts about how I had yet to see an Artful Blogging magazine.  She graciously offered to send me one of her older issues.  This one just happens to be from Nov-Dec-Jan 2011 so I would say it arrived right on time.
She also included a card made from her one of her lovely photos.
And lots of tags, stickers and postcards.

Thanks so much for your generosity, Sharon.
I will enjoying reading the magazine.
And using all the extras, too.

Best wishes and blessings,

    Wow, that was a long wait, but worth it so to see! I'm on my way to bed, but had some minutes so I visit some blogs, so so behind in blogland but alas, can't do it all.
    Loved that November gratitude post btw, great one. Hope to have more time soon, to catch up, in the mean time, take care, hugs from us all (the girls still know who you are, like you are a famous person, too cute!) sleep well,

  14. Good golly - it must have been walked over by foot!

    Now you're just gonna have to keep track of how you made that last little stone cover. It's the prettiest one yet and I need you to get me started on one

    I'm blog hopping tonight after working on my barn project all afternoon and came across a cool crochet site that you might like.

    That is incredible for taking 3½ months to arrive in the mail... My goodness. BUT you got it and that is a joy in itself. There are such nice bloggers.
    Hugs to you and enjoy a great week.

  24. Yikes....that took awhile, huh? But SO worth it! Look at all the goodies you have there and magazines to read on the weekend in your jammies. I bet you are a happy girl.

    LOVE the new look of your blog...fresh and easy to read.

    It's sunny here and going to be 65. This is NOT usual for here, but we'll take it. But it HAS to snow sometime, right?
    Hugs
