It had been a quiet and relaxing Christmas with just the three of us, which includes Cecil, our sweet cat. I had received some handmade cards and gifts from some very dear blogging friends and would like to share them with you today.
My dear close friend MARIE had surprised me with a lovely tag and one of her gorgeous Christmas stockings.
A very beautiful card came from my dear Scottish blogging friend LYNNE.
My dear friend SILKE and I had met in a quilt group over 10 years ago. This Christmas she had decided to send out cute mug rugs instead of cards.
This beautiful heart and the lovely card underneath came across the Baltic Sea from my sweet Danish friend DORTHE.
MARTINA is a lovely blogging friend in the South of Germany. She had sent me a marvelous box filled with wonderful goodies and a beautiful tag.

Another fabulous and unexpected package came from my dear friend VIOLA. Everything had been wrapped beautifully.
She had not only spoilt me but also Cecil. How sweet is that? Here you can see him checking out his package.
He loved the tuna and calamari dinner he got very much. The gifts I have received were uneatable but not less yummy. I’m pretty sure you will agree. This is one of Viola’s fantastic collages on a piece of bark.
The altered spoon is so gorgeous too.
I also love the vintage spools in their beautiful bag
and the adorable card, Viola had created.
Thank you very much again, my dear friends! Every single card and gift made me happy and I feel thankful for being part of this wonderful blogging community.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!
I wish you a wonderful, healthy, happy, successful and creative 2012!
