My Secret Sister ROCKS!

I'm a part of a Secret Sister Group in one of the groups I belong to. For anyone who doesn't know, the idea is to send a little something every month-it doesn't have to be anything BIG just something to let your Secret Sister know you're thinking about her. Well, I received the COOLEST package in the mail yesterday. MY SECRET SISTER ROCKS!!

LOOK at what she sent me:

There is an 'Idea' pad-PERFECT for me! I'm ALWAYS looking for something to jot down ideas or sketches from other blogs or sites. I keep telling myself I need a notebook JUST for ideas yet only think of it WHEN I need it!!
Then there's the 'To Order' pad. Again, PERFECT!!! I don't know about YOU, but I'm ALWAYS trying to remember what it was I wanted from where...NOW I'm going to make an effort to keep it ALL in my 'To Order' pad. Next in this picture is the altered pocket calendar-it's the one that says 'Remember' on it. HOW TOTALLY beautiful are these!! I love the ideas, I love the colors, love the papers!!!
You may have thought that was all but unh-unhh--- NO KIDDING!! Look what else was in there:

This is the front. It is a tri-fold coin holder, altered! I'd bought some of these a while back and still haven't done anything with them well, my SS has certainly inspired me to get BUSY. This is ADORABLE! I LOVE it! And what a perfect gift, for anyone really, but I was thinking of making one up and sending to my mom with both sets of grandkids inside.

This photo shows it open:

Here is a closer photo of just the far left side.
I LOVE the stamp set she used. It's (D1197) My One and Only from CTMH.

And here is the close up photo of the far right side.
I didn't do the middle because I think you can get a good enough idea from the photo above.
Just in case she visits my blog.....Thank You, again and again to my Secret Sister!! :)
Yesterday was a pretty good day (aside from being a little grouchy from being SO stinkin' tired!!) Not only did I get this wonderful package from my SS but I ALSO got some MORE SU! stamps (and rub-ons) in the mail. I haven't played with them yet, only assembled them. Nice thing was they are the pre-cut ones. It was nice enough getting them in the mail. It was just an added treat to not have to cut them apart!! I love SU! stamps but I HATE cutting them apart to assemble them. So when they come precut-(I think the stamps from the mini catalogs (correct me if I'm wrong) all come precut so all you have to do is adhere them to the wood block) it's even nicer!!!
I started 'playing' with my Happy Heart Day set-water painting and stuff but nothing finished yet. I'll be sure to post when something is done!
Have a splentabulous day!! I'm going to get a few things done around here and then hope to take a good nap today. I work the next few days so I don't forsee any stamping in my next 3 day future.
Enjoy your weekend!!
