What a wonderful surprise................

I couldn't believe my eyes when I came back from the 'hard labour' session up my allotment.  My husband handed me two packages.

One contained an order of a few days ago, a large block of white Sculpey, and 6 blocks of the 2oz Premo Sculpey, 2 of which are black as I want to create some tiles inpired by Laurie Mika. 

The next surprise moved me to tears - it was a Fed Ex box from the USA.  And look what was inside!!!
In an email conversation with a gentleman from the Polyform Products Company  makers of Sculpey and all the Premo clays and so  much more (you can see the lovely email in my earlier post here.)
he mentioned their Promo Accents range which I hadn't discovered. 

He offered to send me a sample - which I accepted.
I looked up the range on the internet.
They were fantastic, and I was so excited trying to guess which colour I would receive.

Imagine my astonishment, surprise, and utter delight when I put my hand in the box and pulled out  not one, but 24 packets of the most amazing colours and hues! 
Pearly, glittery, and metallic!
I am absolutely over the moon - I shall be spending a lot of time creating with it in the coming months.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart kind sir, you have made an old lady very very happy and I truly appreciate your very kind and generous gesture.

Wow Lottie what an amazing sample and such a kind man.

But you did go to a lot of trouble to point out problems with their instructions.

Can't wait to see what you make. You can now play to your hearts content.

Have wonderful fun with them all.
