Wonderful Present FROM Claudia

It has been a long time since I've got wonderful presents from Claudia for Christmas...

Here they are! One day, a postman rung the door bell to let me know that there is a big parcel to me which can't fit in the letter box!
So I went outside to receive it, it was REAL big parcel from Italy, yes from Claudia!!! :D
I was so excited, my heart had began to beat so fast, as thinking what's in there!?

Once I opened her parcel, I was so surprised that there were so many goodies in there!
Everything was beautifully packaged by shinny bags and ribbons (like upper left photo above)!
There were so many Italian (European?) cosmetics (so nice scents!), Chocolate flower, Soap message card, Potpourri, lovely bracelet (lower right photo, can you see my name on it?)!!

There were more and more!
Look at this beautiful Hornbook!!!!!
This is my first Hornbook! I had been wanting to have my own Hornbook, but have never had a chance to have one, but she presented me, this wonderful designed Hornbook and the chart for it!
Ohhhh, I have been still excited by this, when I saw this I was speechless!
I heard that she has the same one, so we can make the same Hornbook!!! It so meant to me to have the same one with dear friends, it makes me feel like I'm with them!
So definitely I will try to start this Hornbook as soon as possible, as thinking of her, and will treasure it forever!

You'll be surprised, but there were more presents in the bag!!!
The newest chart from Passione Ricamo, and Italian chart book (like JCS ornament issue), and another lovely chart!

I love them all, they are so pretty!
What a thoughtful present I've received from faraway friend!!!
I'm so touched by them!!
She is sooooo kind and thoughtful person, and I always admire all of her works!
She is also so talented, I'm so happy to have you as my dear friend!!!
Thank you so much again, Claudia!!
You really made me so happy and feel so special!!!

And thank you so much for all of my dear friends who had sent me lots of presents, and warm wishes, I'm one of the most happiest and lucky person who have many many precious friends around!
Sometimes, No, often I think "do I deserve such special treats by you all???"
You all always make me happy and feel so special. Thank you so much, again!

And also thank you so much for everyone who is stopping by my blog and leaving comments on my posts!
I love comments :D They always make me happy and also be a big motivate to do improve my works!
Thank you, all of my friends!!!

Please feel free to leave comments, if you have time! :D

Oh Yuko, your presents from Claudia are so beautiful. She is such a lovely and generous girl. The hornbook is gorgeous and I am popping over to her blog to see if I can find out a bit more about it :>)
You do deserve to receive lovely gifts because you also think a lot about other people and make them very happy with goodies from you :>)
