FIRST CLASS SERVICE

Those of you who have ever received anything through the post from me, will know that I am always so relieved when things actually arrive..and that they haven't taken a month to do so! I am always muttering on about how unreliable the post is between here and anywhere, so you can imagine my surprise shock when, on having received a slip in the postbox today informing me of the arrival of a package, I went down to the local POST OFFICE and was handed a package that I had sent for only YESTERDAY!!


Admittedly, it had only come from Barcelona...but it was here, IN MY HANDS!!! Kudos not only to the Spanish mail delivery system, but also to the scrapbooking shop I talked about in THIS POSTCROMATISMES.


 I suddenly thought, yesterday afternoon, that the shop just might have an online store...and YAY!...I was right.  I enjoyed a very pleasant half hour or so, browsing through the site-I wasn't buying you know, I was just checking! Before I knew it, there was a little basket of goodies waiting for me, and my finger was being attracted to the ' submit order' button. That was at about 2.30pm yesterday...and as I say, my package arrived this morning! No complaints about service there!


And here's what arrived



The papers on the LHS are from a Polish Company which I hadn't heard of - I LOWE SCRAP


These are the other sides of the paper, and I just love them! I'll be on the lookout for more from this Manufacturer I think!

They also had a great supply of Washi tape..and after much humming and hawing I decided on these two!

I honestly don't know what I'm most impressed with...the shop's or the mail's service!!....I do know that I'm hoping to get some scrapping done with my lovely new stash over the weekend- once I've finished staring at it and stroking it!!

Thanks for dropping by!
Take care of you
Alison xx

  5. lovely sunny papers and I love your washi tape selection (always so hard to choose). And what a delight to have such fast delivery - still searching for an online shop here that doesn't take 3-5 days to dispatch

  14. How terrific to find out that you can reliably purchase such gorgeous papers on-line from Barcelona. I really love the colours and patterns and can't wait to see what you do with them and the washi tape. Hope you are having a good weekend? Mr sun has finally popped his head out of the clouds here. Hurray! x

  17. Just sometimes the postal system can amaze anyone. I sent something to mum a few weeks back and she got it the next morning after I had posted it at 5pm, obviously, like your parcel, it just hit all the right places at the right time to sail on through the service.
