Goodies: noun ( plural )

objects that are nice to own or receive, especially small luxuries

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I don't have a picture of my desk..gasp....it's true! But I do have some wonderful pics to share with you! It's because of WOYWW, that I have made such wonderful, creative friends like:
 Kat, whose hand designed gorgeous grocery tote was sent to me, it's awesome and cannot wait to take it shopping with me! Visit her blog Kat's Nature for tons of inspiring paintings!

 and Tracey, from Australia, who sent me 2 awesome book marks, aren't they beautiful? I'm suppose to send her some but mine pale in comparison to hers! She is such a talented artist and I highly recommend visiting her blog, Tracey Fletcher King, and check out all the great things there!

and Terrie, from Washington, she and I are exchanging mail art, I love this idea and it truly brightened not only my mailbox but my day too! I love her collaging talents and please go visit her blog Creative Explorer to enjoy her awesome creativity!!

I'm also recieving ATC's from the WOYWW exchange:
First one from Zoe, across the pond from England, and I have to say I was very chuffed to get it, she Zentangled her ATC and incorporated the WOYWW into the design! Isn't she clever? Have you visited her blog? craftygasheadzo, where she is smashing everything!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day, and I am looking forward to stopping by your blog and checking in on you! I realize that the postal system has been closed due to the Diamond Jubilee, so I'll post my ATC's next week, so as not to ruin the surprise for anyone ;0

Yep, it's a true Sandee-ism. And no less phallic than Julia's big yellow ATG gun the first time she laid it a certain upright way on her table.

You made out like a bandit this week. How lucky are YOU?? Way to go, dear.

It's funny that us US girls are still up when everyone else is just facing the day. I will be in bed shortly as I have to be up early for a mammogram. OH Joy! lol Love all of your goodies. So much fun!

Rita said...

Morning Sandee, gosh you got to my desk quickly thanks. Was thinking I'd send an ATC to the Queen, her address is on the Royal Website. Can't work out what Elizabeth is referring to in her comment??? What planet am I on? Can't believe you got Zoe's ATC so quickly, although they did seem to "speed" up before they closed for the holiday. You ATC from me should be on its way again today as we are back to "normal" and I have BADMINTON too. LOL BJ#32

Chuffed? Are we Brits having an undue vernacular influence here? I do hope so! I've been chuffed too - that everyone so enjoyed the swapping and friendliness of the WOYWW 3. You have some amazing artworks on your desk for sure.

Hi Sandee,

Wow - your postman must be wondering what all the mail is about. Now, can you please explain Elizabeth's comment? I looked back at your post and can't figure it out. Sometimes I can be soooo dense. ;-)

Happy WOYWW
Hugs,
Kay #114

Laura said...

What beautiful things you've received! Our arts & crafts pursuits are so great because the person who makes things gets joy from the process and the person who receives it experiences happiness, too. Waving hello from the hills of upstate NY to the hills of western NC. :) ~ Laura #101

Simona Cordara said...

Awesome pieces you received!!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Hi there!!
Starting with the smallest, it works like this:
Hamlet: just a few houses grouped together, no shops, maybe a pub.

Village: A larger area of houses, maybe 2,000 or so people. Usually shops, pubs, school ,doctors if you'#re lucky.

Towns and cities are much larger. My village is called Burbage, we have a lovely community where there are lots of groups and activities going on. The Queen was just a village lady dressing up for the procession - she was very good at waving just like the real person!!
Lovely artwork on your post today, lucky you :)
Hugs, LLJ #70 xx

Barb King said...

Mari K. said...

Great goodies. I love the mail art, what a fun idea. I may have to find someone to exchange some with sometime! I'm heading your way tomorrow! Not sure what part of NC you're in, but we're headed for the Outer Banks. Wish us luck, an 18 month old and two 6 month olds for a 10 hour drive.

Mari K. said...

Me again, think I forgot my #. I'm 124 this week :)

Princess Judy Palmer said...

That is a nice tote bag, but I confess of being leery of white ones because I can never keep them that way. The bookmarks are beautiful and bright! The mail art is fabulous! If I only had half the collage talent as Terrie! However, the most awesome thing on your blog today is the zentangle ATC! That just rocks!!!

Samantha Elliott said...

Wow! Haven't you been a lucky girl! Love Zoe's ATC! Love all of it really!

Twiglet said...

Such a lot of fab gorgeousness!! Now you need to pop over to my blog to find out what dumflings are!!!! x Jo

Shoshi said...

Oooh Sandee, what gorgeous gifts you have received! I love love love Zo's Zentangle ATC! Very clever to incorporate WOYWW into it too! Just great.

Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, and glad you like my latest zentangle art - I'll be uploading a proper post about those pieces so you can see them in detail.

As for my health - feeling really rough atm - not sure why but think it's just a bad patch. Just have to go with the flow - fighting it is the worst thing to do! Frustrating though cos there's a lot I want to do atm.

Happy WOYWW,
Shoshi #89
