Blessings from Blog Friends

Hallow again,

I've gotten so many blessings from beautiful blog friends lately, I just have to show them off.  First up is Lynn Stevens of "Trash to Treasure Art."  Lynn was so freakin' generous, and gifted me with some amazing goodies.

To the left is an amazing altered Altoids tin in which she created
a circus car with attached elephants.  I also received a circus
themed card and a Halloween banner to add to my collection
of friendship banners.
This cone is so amazing, and this picture just
doesn't do it justice.  It was filled with so many
goodies that I ended up using a lot of them for
my upcoming Carnival project.
I had sent her a little altered book I made about
birds.  She reciprocated by sending me this
Halloween's stunning!

She also sent this awesome ATC, for which she is
infamous for.
From my dear friend Kim Kenward of "Musings from Kim K" I received these lovely Halloween favors.

What fun packaging!
A sweet little "scary" sign, a witch and moon stand up due
to a domino, and a dear little shadow box.
Another grouping of friendship banners from lovely bloggers.  My collection is growing, and I hope to post a completed set in the next few weeks.
The one to the left is from Chris McKinley of "Perfectly Printed,"
the one in the middle is from Dear Nan of "Retired in Alaska," and
the one on the right is from Lynn of "Life on a weinee ranch."
A very dear friend, Nan, of "Retired in Alaska" sent me some wonderful homemade strawberry/rhubarb preserves, some adorable polka dot fabric, a friendship banner and a beautiful copper bracelet (made in India)........I'm very spoiled.

Now, a reminder to stop by my blog on this coming Saturday, the 6th of October, to view my presentation about "Le Mysterieux Carnival.  Here's a couple of sneak peeks for what's coming up.

I will be having a giveaway or two as well, so be sure to participate and I'll draw some numbers from the random number app.  I'm giving away two different bundles of custom made Halloween cards to two lucky winners.

Come and see what's going on Saturday.  I'll either have a regular post of images or maybe a'll have to show up to see.

I can't wait to see your carnival...I've been in a Halloween circus mood since I went to the circus. But I have always been intrigued by the artwork and colors of a vintage circus. I can tell your theme will be creepy and fun! =D
