Over the past couple weeks I've been blessed twice by goodies in the mail from friends in Blogland. The first boxful of blessings came from Joyce of Scrap for Joy. Joyce has become a dear friend during the past four years of blogging. It's amazing how much a person, who you've never met, can mean to you. She doesn't live that far away....we will meet someday!
Joyce sent me some wonderful things....including a fun polka-dot cup that I love! She also sent a wipe-off memo board and a Password Log book....both handmade by her. Plus a cute little bookmark and some page markers. I've hung the memo board near my bedroom door. I'm going to use it for weekly encouragement. Scripture, special quotes, etc. The Password Log is an awesome idea. It has spots to keep track of information for all the fun websites I visit. Thanks so much Joyce...you know me well! I love all my sweet treats!
Below is a photo of the postcard Joyce sent me. Love the quote and the design of it a bunch!! It's a Pam Garrison design.
About two weeks ago I commented on one of Ann's posts on her blog Snap, Edit & Scrap. She was featuring an edited photo and I suggested that she might consider selling prints because I sure wanted to buy one! Ann, sweet gal that she is, offered to send me one for free! Here it is - first Ann made the cute paper bird and attached it to a wooden spool. Then she took a picture of it and edited it...beautifully. Not only did Ann send this 5x7 print to me, she sent me plump envelope full of great stuff. Included was an 8x10 collage using a similar print and a paper bird....I'll be finding the perfect frame and it will hang in my bedroom. Love the quilled bird necklace she sent along, and also the lace wrapped around a stack of vintage postcards
Check out the name of her crafty business....Anniethings Possible! She's so clever, and generous too. I can't wait to create with the beautiful lace & postcards she sent to me.
I've said it before but it bears repeating.....one of the best parts of blogging is gaining new friends. I want to thank these two women for blessing my life in such a special way!! Especially by their friendship but also by their sweet gifts!
