Are we having fun yet?  No sooner I get over the "Winter Bug", and I catch a cold.  So, in order to get caught up on things, I'd like to show you a few items we received for Christmas.  Yes, Christmas.  We received the package on January 2, 2014, when I was still recovering from the bug.  Now that a cold has set in solid, I decided to post photos now before it becomes March.

We love our Belgium friends! Not only do they send us Belgium chocolates, but also scrapbooking/cardmaking goodies.  (Yes, we love them without these goodies!)

The large postal box from Belgium contained some great paper packs and card stock.  Love the large aperture greeting cards -- great items for my cross stitch greeting cards!

This is a close-up of the Red paper pack (similar items in the Pink and Green packs) -- gorgeous colors!

A variety of stickers, rub-ons, bling and embossing folders. The thing about getting a package like this from Belgium is you cannot find these products in the United States.  We do have stickers, rub-ons, and bling, but not these designs.

Love the Sea Creatures Stickers and Lilacs.  Don't have anything like that here.  Been wanting to get ahold of some lace -- these are rub-on lace.  

Not used to working with these types of embossing templates, so something for me to learn.  Yes, Jan, you can borrow the butterfly one.

And, of course, what is a package from Belgium without chocolate:

These truffles are to die for, they are so yummy!!!!! (This is my portion of the stash.)

My husband's portion of the stash.  A few other pieces are on the table for us to "share".

Thanks Dominique & Greg for the terrific gifts!  Can't wait to start working with the new goodies!

See you in April/May!  (And yes, we have some of Keith's homemade chocolates set aside for you!)
