Happy Mail and the "Sale that wasn't"

Today had it's ups and downs.... starting with the fact that the Social Club cancelled tonight's market sale - 3 of the 6 stall holders pulled out on Tues and they decided not to go with just 3:-(  and I got short notice (yesterday) that I had been shortlisted for a job and the interview was today at 2.30.  It was a bummer.... they asked really difficult questions so unlike what I was used to and I felt totally unprepared!!!!!  Oh well, what will be will be.... so that was the down part....

now for the up part.... I arrived home to a lovely envelope that came all the way from Garner, North Carolina... from the lovely Anne....  Anne recently hosted an ATC challenge over at 2peas and I was lucky enough to win her lovely ATC
 She also asked if anyone wanted to trade.... for this ATC
so I said I would like to... and I sent her my ATC
Today I got an email to say my ATC's had arrived at Anne's and when I got home.... her lovely ATC's were here together with a matching card...
Isn't this just lovely.  I can tell you it lifted my spirits when I got home.  So thanks Anne... I really appreciate counting you as a friend.

I also received some other happy mail last week from Paula. a beautiful card, some lovely stamped images and some stickles.

  Thank you Paula


Thanks for preserving tonight... a bit of a long read... hope you enjoyed it though,
Almost the weekend......

Oh no! That sucks that they canceled the sale, slightly annoying with the late notice after you worked so hard to prepare! And not much fun with a short notice interview! BUT I am happy you received such pretty happy mail! Comes right when you needed it huh?
