Happy St. Patric's Day!

I can't believe it's been a month since my last post, time goes fast and I thought I had to make some time to post because then it gets super hard to catch up again :), I also felt kinda guilty of not posting all the wonderful swaps I've been receiving in the past weeks :), so If you sent me something, don't worry I will post it soon.

The reason for my absence is simple, I had to concentrate on what I've been doing, It's very hard for me to focus on one thing lately, my attention span is getting worse and worse in the lat years, so in order to try and finish what I've started I had to keep myself away from my emails,Journal and Flick, I must admit that is hard and I really miss you, but I had to to what I had to do and It's been working :)

Well like a mentioned earlier, Ive been getting the coolest parcels! sadly US customs tend to take a peek on my International swaps and they always mess my pretty wrapped parcels :(

They don't take the time to close it again, most of the time the boxes are in pieces with the goodies falling out and It's hard to say if It's missing something X_X

In other swap news, I got these wonderful goodies in the Fat Quarter Fabric Swap for the month of February, this is the best parcel I've got form that group, lots of wonderful extras!

And look at the wonderful fabrics :), my partner Karen did a wonderful job choosing them and putting together this wonderful parcel!

Take a peek inside the kawaii organizer, is so cute, she sent me a purple pen and everything :), her sewing skills are wonderful and the fabric is so sweet and soft, you can check more of her goodies at her Etsy Store Here

This is a peek of what I sent to my March FQ Swap Partner :), she's just starting quilting,so I hope she finds them useful, I added some of my red-white twine I wrapped over a wooden spool, these twines are a must on a sewing parcel.

I also sent her some nice teas, that strawberry mango is so yummy and aromatic, I am a coffee person but I've been sampling lots of teas lately :)my favorites are the fruity sweet ones a very nice alternative from coffee.

Well I still have lots to tell you but to make it all short I'm going to say that I've been drawing,designing,reading,cutting,carving,writing over the past month and It's all about Paper and Coffee, well a - Paper Cafe - to be exact :), but I will tell you more and Show you something later.

In the meantime, Have Fun! don't' drink to much and
Have a Nice Day!

If you are expecting an email from me, don't worry I will reply soon! :)

See Ya!

Gosh, I can't believe how haphazardly the U.S. Customs Department 'reassembles' packages! But then...I don't really expect any better.

As always, you've posted wonderful pictures of your recent acquisitions. I can't wait to hear more about this 'paper café'! :)

every time I see a parcel like this i get all upset, they usually do it with parcels from Brazil,Asia, or South America

Ah those are goodies overload! Lucky you!
Maybe we should do a swap sometime, if you're up for it!

Eep, they do that there? That's so uncool. I hope they don't rip the one I sent you because I wrapped it nicely. Did you get the cards yet? They should have been there already. Let me know, k?
