2 postcards and one great surprise

It´s been a long time since I last posted something at here. Well, due to some health issues, I am still slow on my stitching. =(
It didn´t stop some really nice friends to surprise me with their kindness tho.
A few days ago, Joke asked me "havent you got anything from me, lately?!" and I was very surprised. No I didnt... Till the day before yesterday.
I got a beautiful postcard from her! She went to spend her vacations at the Czech Rep. and took some time to be that gentle and send me this.It was funny because she posted it with with 2 stamps: one was Czech and the other was Dutch. =)

Then yesteday I was at Skype talking to her (jeeezz... I so love Skype! Its amazing! It was like she was the other side of the phone!!I learnt so much about her place! Groningen is way much more beautiful than I expected! And it was also quite a shock to realise I always said her name the wrong way! hahahahaha... I even learnt a bit of Dutch and, believe it or not!, Chinese!) and then there were somebody at the door. I went to check and tere was another postcard from Joke! =P
This time it was one from her hometown.The cannal is something beyond beautiful!I asked her "do you realise how lucky you are for living in such a beautiful place?!"

Whith this second pc from Joke, I also got a delightful surprise from my Thai friend, Lin.I met Lin at Flickr´s. She had told me she had sent me some "small" surprise a few days ago. I freaked out a bit "ok... have I forgot any swap I was in with you?!!!!"
"No, silly! Its just a little something I think you shall like" , she said. I wonder how would she define "little something" !!!! =D

Lin is a very talended quilter and we were partners on previous swaps at Flickr, so she pretty much knows my taste. I am always impressed with her skills on the sewing machine. At the top pic you can see one of the sides of the tote she sent me.
The lovely note she included says "Janaina,I got this package for you as a surprise or whatever...I found that you are December baby. Me too! So I decided to celebrate it in July.I hope you will enjoy this package". Yes!!!!! I totally LOVE it all! =P Here you can see the other side of the tote. We don't have snow at here (Joke was impressed with the winter standards temps at here. She said our winter is like her summer, and our summer is what they name "heat wave". LOL.) so I have never seen a snowman, "live", but it doesn't stop me from loving them. It has an inside small pocket too, and I am thinking where and when can I go to show off my new tote! Ppl will DYE here!

Lin knows I like anything "that comes in a tin", so she sent me something I have never ever seen at here. Its like a tuna tin, and I held it in my hands for a while when I got it, wondering "what is this?!". Super mega cute note pieces that come in the tin!=D
I was so excited! I had Joke on the phones and I think she should be thinking "that´s the worst nut case girl I have ever met!" =D
I am a very very lucky girl, aye?!
Hugs to all!
I just got nominated AGAIN! Wendy just gave me the Kreativ Award! Now I shall think on another 5 awesome blogs to nominate too... Tough task... There are so many! =)

Hi you nut case girl =) I loved talking to you yesterday!! And you did not exxagerate, Lin sent you a beautiful snowman, I love it!
B.t.w. the boat on the pc I sent you, is a sightseeing boat, the canal is not far from our home.
Hugs, Joke

Forgot to tell you: the boat is so low, because there are a lot of bridges in Groningen. This way they don't have to open up to let the boat pss, and other traffic is not affected by the sightseeing boats.
