Like an unexpected thank you gift from your new favorite company - Cambria Cove - of some forget-to-breathe-beautiful cards.... inside two even more beautiful boxes, and accompanied by a HAND WRITTEN note.
Completely bowled over that a place that values human to human contact as highly as they do has found a prime spot in our busy electronic world. I love you, Cambria Cove! XO.
Or what about the delight in finding a package in my mailbox that contained some lovingly handmade soap from my friend Linda, owner of Shambala Soap?
When I walked to the mailbox I thought - DANG - those mountain laurels smell heavenly this year.
But it was no mountain laurel. It was this gorgeous and yummy smelling handmade soap. She sent me three kinds, in stunning wraps. I didn't want to take them out - but she said she would yell at me if I used them as decorations instead of as soap! I used the Goat Milk one today and it's amazing - beautiful texture and it smells incredible!! They are all natural, and cruelty free - no dye either. The herbs are from her own organic garden. Check out her website here, or follow her on Twitter - @shambalasoap - because in addition to her gorgeous soap art, you will find a warm, sweet and funny lady.
Speaking of funny, how about a laugh this lazy Sunday? A Melon Mambo colored elephanty laugh?
How could a teeny tiny elephant doing a little can-can not make you laugh?? And - that's right - new color! The card base and ribbon are Melon Mambo. The tissue paper flower is made with the tissue from my first Cambria Cove box and has a pink rhinestone brad in the center. The "laugh" is a rub-on from the Bright Delight set. The elephant is the new Animal Stories critter, and I highlighted him and the text with my white gel pen. (all supplies Stampin' Up!) Simple & quick, and again - just using some of the 8,000 things already on my desk! :) Necessity is the mother of invention! WAY easier than organizing the studio, yes? :)
Are you digging the polka dot ribbon yet?
I hope you're having a great Sunday - I'm procrastinating a bunch of work I have to do. I feel like being lazy. *sigh*
CU tomorrow :)
Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :)
