Am Crying...

**This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down for my first one.**


Did I ever tell you that I cry easily?

I do.

Why, during the months leading up to our wedding, I was a mess. Just crying at the drop of a hat.

We had the routine guidance and counseling meetings with our priest, and I'd cry at almost every meeting. Father Luke would ask why I chose my DH as my partner, I would cry. Then it was how would religion help your marriage, and I'd cry. And then, it was what is the best lesson you could give your future children, and I'd bawl!!

Then, it came time for my bachelorette and bridal shower. Again, when I made my thank you speeches, my friends and fam would whisper under their breaths "here it comes." And no matter how I tried to suppress those tears, my voice would quiver from the start, my throat would choke up, and the dam would just burst.

I got better and then I got pregnant. And still I cry easily.

Today, the UPS man dropped off a package at my door. I smiled when I saw who it was from.

Sunghee had agreed to my request of allowing me to print pictures of her carnival creations. My baby will have his first birthday in June and his theme is a circus. I just love Sunghee's projects and I thought her pics would be great on the walls.

And then she said she'd send the creations themselves to me. Isn't that SO sweet? Really, really NICE! She wouldn't let me pay for them; she even said no to shipping. OMG, I love her!!!!

So when I opened the package and saw these, I started tearing....

Not only did Sunghee send me her beloved Carnival creations for the TGF Royal Battle (which I think we should've won by the way :)), she sent me so much more!!! She sent me the International Ink tank. And this, I love this pagoda and hot air balloon! There are others, but I haven't really touched them since the baby is right here.

How lucky am I to have such great friends in the stamping world?

And I've always admired Sunghee's awesome talent. But she is just the most generous and funny person!! And you should see these up close! They are all so much cuter in person! LOVE THEM!

I will take pics when they're up at the party! Thank you soo much, Sunghee! My question for the rest of you folks is what do you think I should do as a thank you gift? (Haha, SG, I'm not 'paying' you, I'm giving you a gift back!).

And I believe Sunghee will be opening up a shop soon. She already has a Wine Box template for sale here. Thanks again, chica! You don't know how much this all meant to me!!

This made up for the kind of 'crying' I had earlier:

First I was laughing because he's using my Copics as a sword. Kinda looks like He-Man.

And then I look again and he's figured out how to open them!!! DAAAAAAAAAAAAANGGGGIITTTTT!!! I found several ink stains on the crib. Oh well, my own fault.

Ok, I'm off to play with my new goodies. And tear up some more.

P.S. I forgot to tell you about my card. Used Maisy Ketto for the stamp (stamped on kraft-like paper). CS is from Bazzill. Brads are from Dear Lizzy. Fabric is from Torendi.

OMGosh! That was so amazing of Sunghee and I couldn't think of a sweeter gal to receive such a fab gift! And don't feel bad about being a cryer, I can totally relate. ;)
I love your adorable little Ketto card too, that fabric with the mushroom and bird is the perfect touch!
