Creative Gifts Received...
My birthday was long ago in this fast spinning world...all the way back to the end of August. I haven't shown you some of my wonderful gifts I received. I am not showing these to you to brag...I am showing them to let you know how grateful I am for blogging friends who are very kind and generous and creative.
This set of themed blue hydrangea goodies is from Kathy of Paper Pumpkin. Thank you from my heart my friend. I am touched that you have really understood me and what I like so much. Kathy not only purchased some items like the note cards, blue ink pad, hydrangea napkins and blue washi tape which I adore...she hand stamped and created a lovely floral card. The part I love the most is the time she spent to hand carve a hydrangea flower stamp for me to be able to create beautiful pieces of my very own. Thank you for being you my dear.
This package of hand made deliciousness is from Jane of Aralia Jane. She was participating in a swap of Faerie Pages and I was unable to participate. What a wonderful surprise when I received this package of goodies from her.
My very own Faerie page that Jane created. In person it is magical and glittery and Faerie fun. This photo just does not show how fabulous it truly is. Thank you Jane dear. It was my very fortunate day when you commented on my blog and we became friends.
Jane also sent me one of her "Day at the Beach" ATCs. We both participated in this swap but when we don't get one of each other's we do our own private swap. The netting and seashell are just the perfect touch. The sheet music sewn wrapper with the bathing beauty is an added bonus. Thank you so much Jane dear.
This little turtle swam all the way from Daniella of Layers of Creativity. Daniella is the sweetest busy mom of two teenage boys yet she finds time to make wonderful creative things and then generously shares them. Thank you very much dear. I am so happy to share your friendship.
Each of these wonderfully creative ladies are part of the sharing of talents and techniques and hearts that I have found here in blogland. This is what keeps me reading posts and sharing and enjoying comments. Thank you each and every one of you out there. I am truly blessed and very grateful.
I hope you are inspired by others and their creative talents...I know I am.
Our weather is colder now and the Fall colors are happening. It is dark much earlier each evening. I find I don't get as much done when the sun is not shining. Yes, I do have a "daylight" lamp but it just isn't the same. This is a busy week for me with volunteer and personal commitments however I will try to do something in my studio. I find being creative for me is like a breath of fresh air. I don't want to miss it.
May you do joyful creative things that make you happy...
