Happy Mail = New Friends & New Toys

This Monday started out feeling very Monday-ish.  I was really tired and my allergies were being so mean to me!  I decided to try my best to make it a good day.  I took my sewing with me to work on during my lunch break.  That was a great idea!  I had something to look forward to all morning and then I was refreshed and ready to go back to work after lunch.  I didn't get a lot of sewing done, but it still felt good. 

When I got home I checked the mail.  Guess what!  My Happy Mail came today!!!  I'm so excited!

I love the card!  I cannot even believe how much we have in common.  I got a great Happy Mail partner for sure!!!  I hope I can live up to her awesomeness a even a little bit.  :-)

I got this postcard to send her from my coworker Glade.  Her Etsy shop is called Glademade.  I wanted it to have something to do with Austin.  Glade did a great job!

I got a different kind of happy mail on Friday.  I ordered this super cute Huggle from AJthePurple.  I saw these on her blog and thought they were adorable.  I have recently developed a love for handmade toys and really wanted one of these little cuties.

Meet Taffy!

AJ even decorated the envelope with a picture!
Thank you!

It really is fun to open the mail box and find something fun instead of just junk mail or bills.  Makes me smile!

Have you gotten anything fun in the mail recently?  I'd love to hear your happy mail stories, too!  :-)
