Special Delivery.....

Good grief! It's been one month and a day since I've posted on my blog, so please excuse the cobwebs.  I haven't maintained this place very well, but I hope to be up and running more consistently with random whatnot's and so forth's.  But for now, I have a very special little Valentine mailbox to show you that comes from the genius mind of Regina at The Cutting Cafe.  
Follow this link here for more details.
A forest fairy has teamed up with Cupid and left their love child in our living room where the beautiful mailbox has taken up residency on a branch. 
Awwwww......
In other news, I'd like to announce that I am 2 weeks along in gestation of a bouncing baby kidney stone that is hell bent on trying to kill me,   We're baffled for a name, so we're taking suggestions. With any luck we'll have a delivery any day now.
Happy February and for those of you that celebrate, Happy Almost Valentine's Day!
Enjoy the video :)
Hugs and Happy Crafting,
Lisa xx

So happy to see you back! LOVE this design. We don't have mailboxes like this in the UK but it's such a lovely shape and you've brought it to life in your own inimitable style. Hope that kidney stone disappears asap and as painlessly as possible. Jenny x

Oh you poor kid! So sorry to hear you are suffering, hope it passes soon! Your mailbox is absolutely adorable! You are so gifted and each and everyone of your creating is always beyond spectacular!

Mitra Pratt said...

I am VERY against you being sick. Two weeks is way too long. I am now thinking you need a four week stay in a resort with umbrella drinks, hot waiters, and the sound of the ocean. I REALLY love your mailbox! And your tree is simply fabulous!!! So happy you are on Regina's team with me! Mine goes live to tomorrow....have to take some photos in the snow...ugh. ;-)

Kelly Neis said...

I am thinking Stoner, Rocky, Rockabella? Poor girl, I feel for you and I hope this passes through as well as possible with you!!! I will pray for your endurance. Your Valentines box is fabulous and so sweet, love the rolled papers and the old fashioned valentine peeking out.
Remember to Breath, takes the pain away, somewhat. I will pray for you girl!
Hugs Kelly

Tracy said...

butterfly said...

Oh, that mailbox is too cute! Adorable papers and what brilliant dimensional embellishing as always. Lovely to see your Valentine's tree - and that the mailbox has found a place.

Do hope you manage to survive the kidney stone... poor you! - and that it leaves you in peace in time to celebrate the big V-day.

Alli B. said...

Your papers are fabulous for this project. You've got me thinking postcards to do one.

Leslie said...

super cute!

Pia S said...

So glad to see signs of life from you again, was wondering where you'd gone. Kidney stones, ah, you poor thing... Hope they're out soon and the pain is as little as it can be.
Love your mailbox, such a sweet little thing, and love your tree!

Jeri said...

Absolutely gorgeous mailbox. Gosh, I hope the kidney stone leaves. They're so painful.

Decosse's Dynamite Doodles said...

Oh good God, my dad dealt with kidney stones and I've heard they are worse than giving birth. So sorry to hear that you are gestating one at the moment. I pray for a quick and easy delivery. There is always Rocco, Rocca, Rockford, Rockland, Rockledge, Rockley, Rockwell and Ralstone(I kid you not these are all legit boy's names). Then there is always Royston (from town near stone cross) or Rochester (stone camp). If it is a girl stone you could call her Gemma (for precious stone) or Gisa (for carved stone). Okay, I'll stop now.

Wishing you the best during this difficult time. Know that I think of you often, even if I don't get here very often. Miss you!

Hugs,
Original

ps great creation!

Tina Goodwin said...

You, my dear, are a ROCK STAR! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your mailbox! I especially love the papers.

I'm liking the sound of Rockford for your kidney stone. Hope you get rid of that thing soon so you'll start feeling better.
Hugs,
Tina

Keri Parish said...

Your mailbox is Super cute!! Love it! I hope you are feeling better soon.

Paper Profusion said...

Stone the crows girl you need to get a singing prescription! If you sound anything like me the blighter will vamoose rapidly. Playlist to include; papa was a rolling Stone, stone cold crazy, stone (not) in love with you, I can't live if living is with(out) you, cry me a river and finally don't fight the sea. Whilst you are singing try watching old dvd of Jagged Edge! (Jeff Bridges might take your mind off the pain). Nicola x

Ps ADORE your mailbox, it is super cute and gorgeously designed/decorated.

Let us know of your happy delivery!

Lori said...

Oh, that is one fabulous mailbox! Love the black and white valentine - so wonderful!

Meihsia Liu said...

Hope you are feeling better now, Lisa. Love your beautiful mailbox. xxx

Marie-Louise said...

Sorry Lisa I am only getting this post now. I do love your tree and the fabulous decorations. I had no idea you were not well. Kidney stones are so painful. Hope you get it sorted very soon.

Margaret said...

Umm... OUCH! Never had a stone personally but have heard they are pretty horrific! Hope all is well now!

Your sweet mailbox looks wonderful on your beautiful tree! I was just sharing your all season tree idea with a co-worker the other day. She and I are both fellow procrastinators!

I was sick with the flu for the hole month of February and that was no fun, but I do not know if I would want kidney stone because I know they are no fun, so I hope you get them out asap and you feel better. Your cute mail box works really well. It is just darling.
Take care of yourself.
Hugs, Pat/♥
