First Time Evers

I was having a kinda crappy day when....
...the mail came! First Time Ever Art Mail - Lenna thank you so much! Now that I see it up close and personal I KNOW I can do that...
Remember my Tales from a wanabe swapper? Well this is what I received in return for my three cards (First Time Ever Mail Swap). Starting with a lovely young man from Laura...

A delish fabric art card from Frieda..

AND (ta da) one of the cards from one of my blogging peeps Jo (hurrah).
Thank you ladies for participating in the swap so I could be one of the lucky recipients of your "vintage art". I love all three of them! Don't think I'll be mailing them to anyone soon - I have all kinds of ideas how I want to display them! And thank you Lenna for inviting me to join your swap (watch her very cool video to see all the cards) - it was a lot of fun and I really learned a lot. Can't wait for the next one...Jewels


  1. Awwwww, thank you Jewels for this lovely post about the vintage note card swap!! : )) Your received cards look so lovely, especially they way you photographed them.

    I thought you would like to see a little mail art, and that way I could reuse your envelope! Those photos on your envelope are vintage too -me & my sister!!! Glad the mail turned your day around : ) lenna

  2. So happy you've received one of my cards, Jewels! Enjoy!

  3. Hi Jewels, I'm so glad you got one of mine!! I'm happy that my baby has ended up in such a happy home. Laura and Frieda's are so gorgeous, you lucky lucky girl!

    It was lovely to take part in this swap wasn't it?!


  4. Julie - what a wonderful package and contents you got in your mail!! I just love all the great things you have been doing - it would be great if we could get enough of the Q2'r's together and have you teach a class in this beautiful stuff. Methinks you have found your niche. Carol

  5. Hi Jewels very cook swap!! I love that envelope so very much! Things that make you go hmmm..... I think I'll try that one! Recycling at it's best!! Try to stay warm and cozy in this wicked weather we have!!! XO Love, Fran.
