April Has Wings...

I feel somehow April has sprouted wings and is flying faster than I can keep up with on the calendar.  So many birthdays this month to celebrate.  Isn't this Angel of Blue lovely?  She flew to my home from Australia. My dear friend Judy (I know you follow her and all her amazing creative endeavors) knows just how to spoil me. This is a hand painted face that Judy does so well.   Thank you dear for allowing me to enjoy your beautiful work and this amazing little doll.

Here is her full length photo.  Beading, hand dyed lace and all created by Judy and her loving hands and spirit.  I feel blessed.

Judy also included this lovely large tag with lots of lace and beads and flowers.  This looks just like August to very favorite month.  Peridot and calm serenity.  I am so grateful for Judy's friendship and her generosity.

Now you all know I am participating in National Letter Writing Month (NLWM) this April.  My darling friend Daniella surprised me with all of these goodies.  Thank you dear.  Please say hello when you visit her link.  I adore the ATC and little card and will utilize all the card blanks and ephemera for making more goodies to mail out. Thank you very much Daniella for surprising me with "magic mail" in April.

As part of NLWM I received a surprise gift.  This little antique bottle with a message in it.  Thank you Debbie (I don't know if she has a blog).  Her card and envelope are very creative and show her passion of Paris.  This arrived from New York.

This postcard is very clever.  The sender actually went to an air and space museum to take a photo of a mail plane and create her postcards to send.  Thank you very much and I adore your clever creative style.
With my participation in NLWM I have kept myself overly busy.  I have mailed to Italy, UK, 8 Canada's, 30 States for a total of 126 pieces of mail to date.  And I am a long way from completing my list of 138+ participants this year.  Whew!  I may have to continue in May as April is "flying" right along.

Not much creating in my studio with all the mailings coming and going.  I did manage to make a few pendants just for fun and mail them.  Using ball chain in fun colors available at my local Ben Franklin's craft store, I included ribbon, lace, and buttons.  Just a few minutes to create and easy to mail.  I didn't get a photo of the others.

Here is a close up but the color is too dark.  I think you can see the idea.  What would you do to improve this look?  I thought they would be fun for Easter baskets.  Finding one inside a fun plastic egg would be a treat for lots of ages.

Speaking of Easter...this was some mail I sent out this past week.  I personally like the bunny foot so much I mailed one to myself.  lol  May you and your family enjoy a wonderful Easter with all that means the most to you and yours.  Mr. C and I will stay close to home this year.  Honoring the true meaning and somehow also eating boiled eggs (me only as Mr. C never eats them!) and chocolate...however not together. This month has gone so quickly I never even set out my favorite little Easter treasures.  Maybe next year...
Easter Blessings to each of you.  Creative Bliss...
