WOYWW - happy happy happy mail

Hello there, it's our favourite day of the week. Why? Well because Wednesday means WOYWW, hosted by the lovely Julia. Why don't you go and add pictures of your own desk? It's great fun, and highly addictive.
So, our title claims we have happy mail, we do - this much happy mail! Stamps, masks, fibres, crochetted doilies (these are sooo cute and diddy, what skill went into making these) feathers, card making images, even a fabulous CD rom full of printable images. Wow, lucky lucky us, but, 'where did all this come from'? We hear you ask?

We were lucky enough to win the Blog candy draw over at Ike's blog. Thank you so much Suzy. What a wonderful hoard of stash we received. Horace was first to the door when the postman arrived.

But Pooh soon got stuck in to the bag-forage-frenzy.

How lucky are we?

Ike also sent this wonderful make for us, which we've pinned onto our storage drawers above the bed where we can look at it as we craft. It makes us smile, just like the image (except we are not red and our teeth don't twinkle so nicely!)

We have everything piled on the desk ready for a play later today, we already have specific ideas for the fibres but for some mad reason, whenever we have new stash, we just love to display it on the desk for a day or two until we start to use it, just to admire all the loveliness.

Thank you once again to our lovely friend Suzy, we have big smiles on our faces today.
With love from the bears
