crafty queen

I had a nice surprise in the post yesterday
although I was expecting it , it a was very nice surprise

Crafty Queen from Steph over on folksy  go here
She is so cute ,as soon as I saw her in Stephs Folksy shop I had to buy her
This picture doesn't do her justice, shes so much more cuter in real life
Thanks Steph,

As well as the Crafty Queen Brooch, Steph also included a goody bag filled with charms and stars,
the charms spell out Thanx
Steph's shop is full of unique crafty goodness, not to be missed


My tea swap parcels have arrived at their destination , and I'm so glad to say I sent one to (who else but) Steph
Heres what I included

I'm not ashamed to say my picture is not as good as Stephs on her blog so if you want to see more detail please visit    show and tell

My second parcel went to Lesley over at   calmlycreative
And this is it

I forwarded the copy of Birmingham Rose which came from Lucy , I loved reading this and I hope Lesley will also, and maybe pass it on as part of The Great Tea Swap,
