Gifts from the Crafty World

          Hi friends, I have been blessed like many of you to have a hobby that not only makes me happy but helps spread a little bit of happiness!! This post is  to share with all of you how generous the crafting community is and to say a big Thank you to each one of you.

Maria [aka Mia ] is a versatile crafter from Greece whom I became friends with recently. She is multi-talented  crafter dabbling in papercrafts, fabric crafts and a loooot of different styles of crafts.Mia has hosted a couple of amazing giveaways recently and I was the  lucky winner of a surprise parcel. I was so stunned to receive this big box of crafty treasure all the way from Greece . It has the most special handmade crafts , the cutest buttons I have seen, gorgeous rhinestones, felt embellishments, beautiful laces ,fabric pieces,beads, stamps and even metal embellishments. Thank you so much Mia....you don't know how happy your kindness has made me feel!!
From Mia
I bet most of you who visit me know Lisa....the mermaid crafter. Hehe yes I do tend to imagine Lisa to be a certain magical beautiful mermaid who is supremely kind and benevolent!! Lisa  not only makes the most beautiful projects but is so generous with spreading kindness by commenting on her friends' blogs. If you are a blogger you will know how precious a comment is! Love you Lisa for who you are!! And Thank you so much for the gorgeous giveaway gifts and special card.
From Lisa
I have a crafty friend , Sharada whom I have been lucky enough to meet a couple of times since she lives in Bangalore too. Recently she came back from an UK trip  and this is what she sent me.Everything handpicked for me including dies... I was speechless!!
From Sharada
         Many of you may remember I had a huge celebration last year when my blog viewership reached 5 million. 16 people won prizes and my blogger friend Priyanka Mathur was the lucky winner of a Big Shot machine!
A couple of months back I was struggling with many things in my life and feeling quite low and then... a huge parcel arrived from Priyanka and cheered me up no end! Money need not buy happiness all the time but yes kindness sure can make someone super happy!!!
From Priyanka
During the same phase when I was feeling blue....here is something special a dear blogger friend Pooja sent me! It made me feel so loved and happy. The power of a little something handmade sure is amazing!!
From Pooja
This year was  difficult for me during multiple phases and I had not been able to  craft or blog and visit all of you as much as I used to and wanted to.But I do treasure each comment, email , message and blog visit ....so much that it is difficult for me to put my gratitude into words and thank you adequately enough!Without perhaps realizing it ,each of you have given me a share of happiness...the most beautiful gift!!! Thank you so much my friends!

PS : Stay tuned!!
I am thinking of a giveaway soon...it wont be as grand as the one I had during my 5 million pageviews celebration....just a personalThank you giveaway for my crafty pals in blogland.

  13. Oh Big WOW for all the wonderful goodies you received from such crafty bloggers. (I do know and admire Lisa's cards so much. Don't know the other bloggers, but they certainly shared some sunshine with you.) I'm so thankful for you that all this special sweetness arrived at just the right time to lift your spirits. And I'm awestruck the numbers of your followers (not at all surprised however!) That is certainly a momentous milestone, and one to be so proud of. I hope the remainder of the year is better for you, so that you can be happy crafting. We all have times when we have to put other priorities ahead of crafting and blogging, so that's totally understandable. You take care, big hugs. Enjoy all those wonderful gifts and thanks for sharing what marvelous folks crafters all over the world are.

    That card on changing color when you are blue is just stunning! Such clever and powerful tough! :D
    Hugs!
    P.S. You asked for the fur on the hat of my teddy bear: I used an item named Fluffy Stuff, brand is Woodware. Simply put it on the zone you want cover and then use the embosser heat gun to make it puff.
