Home and Happy Mail

Hello there!
Well I'm back home and in the midst of Christmas preparations ...
I have spoken to my Aunt a lot since I came home ... checking she is ok and so far she is doing fine ... people are popping in and out to see her so I know she is not alone And whilst I was with her I taught her how to shop online for her groceries ... she is so clever for a lady of almost 86 ... and had 2 deliveries through the week so is now quite confident ... She is brilliant with her iPad.

I arrived home late Tuesday evening to a home full of beautiful roses ... I was missed! And my hubby had even put up the Christmas lights on the house with a few decorations inside too ... So lovely ...
Yesterday was spent making more cards, writing and posting them and wrapping some presents ... Then I put up the tree in the evening ... Now it's feeling like Christmas!

I did a few CAS cards that more importantly are flat so I can mail them at the normal rate 




It has not stopped raining here so the photos are not too good ...

I also came home to some Happy Mail ... The gifts will go under the tree


Thank you Kirsty!!! 


Thank you Linda!!!

And some beautiful cards ....


From Ira ... Thank you!


... And this beauty is from Barbara ... Thank you!

I'll share some more when I can photograph them ... You guys are the best ...

I truly appreciate all my friendships with you lovely bloggers ... throughout the last couple of weeks your words and kindness have touched my heart

Have a beautiful day

~ Ros ~

So glad you're home and settling in. Sounds like your aunt is quite a lady. Groceries on the iPad huh. LOL Amazing! I am pinning these cards on my Pinterest board cause I want to remember them for next year. They are beautiful and simple and just plain lovely. Hugs and a very Merry Christmas to you Ros!

Welcome home, most importantly, welcome to your sweet craft room. Clever and sweet postage-friendly card, my pocket hurts a little when I sent out those bulky layered cards this year.
Glad the gift arrived : )

Welcome home, Ros, so glad you made it safe and sound! I know you were missed by everyone. We are finally cold here and I am winding down. Your card is on it's way and a package will come a bit later. I have been a bit overwhelmed these past few months and did not plan like I should have. Have a wonderful Friday!

Lovely CAS design - very elegant! And fabulous gifts too!

Lots of hugs xxx

So happy you're back home and everything is getting back to normal. What a wonderful husband you have... so blessed. Your cards are gorgeous and yes flatter is better for Christmas!
Hugs!

Barbara said...

Such wonderful news about your aunt shortly before Christmas! I can't believe she does online grocery shopping - that's amazing. And yes... postage friendly cards is what I always go for though it does set limitations to creativity... Have a Merry Christmas!

S said...

Your cards are lovely - I pinned them. And it must be wonderful to be welcomed home with happy mail!

Heather Jensen said...

So sweet of your hubby to do that for you. You are running yourself ragged...please take care of yourself. :)

Hugs~
