I love the postman!

Yesterday the postman brought me LOTS of goodies! I received my first Scarlet Lime kit (May) with all of these goodies: I also got these pretty postcards that I ordered on Etsy – all the way from Norway:

This is just one of the Anne Julie postcards that I ordered on Etsy as well.

I plan to frame all the postcards to hang in my house and give some away as gifts too.

My house is STILL a mess. The plumbers had to take out all the old pipes as the house is very old and the pipes are “kapoet”. They also had to move the geyser. One more week and I think the bathrooms will be done.

Just the other day I read the following somewhere: “When was the last time you did something for the first time?” I realized that it has been ages since I really tried something new. I thought about it long and hard and decided that the thing I want to to that I’ve never done before (and always wanted to) was to give oil painting a try. So I signed up for art lessons at a local gallery in Parys. My first class is on 2 July and I can’t wait! Because of my work it has to be after hours and I hope I’ll have energy left at the end of the day to give this my best go. I know I’m not very artistic but I also know that this is on my “things I have to do before I die” list. So … watch this space ........................................... (o;

Michelle I love these beautiful postcards you got from Etsy. I can imagine how gorgeous they will look framed. Way to go girl, trying something new, often takes some courage, will power and determination. We have started yoga and seeing a dietician for the first time, all in the space of one week, earlier this year. Good luck with the bathrooms. Hugs from Desire

Oh wow, now Im so envious. I have not had new scrap stuff for ages. Dont you just love the bright colours. So yummy.

Can I ask a question? How much did the postage cost - customs? I am always a bit nervous to shop online. So just curious.

Most shops I have been to (which is not that many) seem to just be carrying a small basic range. So Im secretly itching for a new kit.

Hope you have much fun using it.
