In the Mail - Pepita's Blogoversary

I love to get something other that bills in the mail. Over the last few weeks I have gotten some wonderful things in the mail.

Here is my first post about the amazing things that have arrived in my mail box.

Almost a month ago Alenka over at Pepita handmade post about her 1st blogoversary. To celebrate she invited fellow bloggers to sign up for a creative challenge. She would send us one of her amazing handmade components and we would have until August 11 to make something with it.
Here are all the components she made to share
Here is the curved turquoise bar that I received
This is going to a fun challenge as I many ideas to play with over the next few weeks. Come back on August 11 to see the final result.

Thanks Alenka for the chance to celebrate with you.


  1. I am anxious to receive my component, Jo-Ann... having just one unique piece to design around should be a challenge, indeed!

    1. I am trying to decide big hole at the top or adds to the challenge.

  2. ... or it can be used as a connector bar ... there are several options ;-D
    What fun to see what everyone receives!!! And even more - can't wait to see what everyone will create!
    Have fun,

  3. Hi Jo-Ann, wow, what a challenge this is :-) seeing all those different ornaments make me smile :-)Have fun with it and see you in August!

  4. Hi Jo-Ann. I am in this hop also. I like the component you gto. Mine is the lower left connector. It is more yellow than the pic shows. I'm looking forward to seeing what you make.

  5. Ooh that looks like an interesting component. I love the colours and finishes that Anika gets on her pieces. I've got the gorgeous orange/yellow swirl bottom right. I'm dead chuffed.
