Red, red and more red!

 Every now and again I do a swap with one of my bloggy friends from around the globe, this time it was with Sue from Chickadee's Country Cottage. Sue lives in Canada with her husband and lovely sweet puppies, you should checkout Daisy, she has the sweetest face.  We decided to swap bags and they both arrived on the same day! Look at this beauty, lovely reds and a great size for a magazine, my lunch box and whatever else I want to take to work. I LOVE it!
Sue also made me a gorgeous bauble, she calls them Friendship balls!
I'll have to find it a special spot in my new craft room which by the way the accent colour I have chosen is RED!!
and also in the package, an Alberta Calendar and for a sugar high...Jelly beans YYYUmmo!! 
Thank-you so much Sue, I feel very spoilt!
So pop on over to Sue's I'm sure she'll show you what I sent soon!

And to really top off my week I received a Scholarship!!
I'm going back to Uni
I'm doing a Graduate Certificate in Business, over the next year for once a month I'll be attending workshops for a couple of days. So to my bloggy friends in the north of the state keep an eye out for me floating around Burnie! It's going to be a busy year!!
