From Her Heart & Hands...
I am continued to be amazed at the creative talents and generosity of such gifted people here in blogland. This very special gift arrived in my mail box just the other day. I couldn't imagine what it was or who had sent it. I had even seen it on her blog post and commented how lovely it was. Me? Mine? For real?
Suz of Suztats is this generous gifted lady. Thank you deeply from my heart Suz. I love them.
Blogging for me is about sharing. Sharing the love of making things. About people I am drawn to. Things we share in common. I love reading comments on my posts. They are for me a confirmation of someone who shares creative interests. They are also a source of constructive criticism. Things that can help me grow and learn. I love it when people really get me...follow who I am and what I do and like.
Suz did just this. She follows me, reads my blog, comments and shares similar creative interests. I had no idea how much she "got me" until this surprise beautiful handmade gift arrived. I adore her art and this flower is hand drawn and water colored by her. I love blue...all shades...my very favorite color. I love flowers. I love thoughtful handmade gifts. This card is all of these things.
This is an ATC and if you read my blog you know how smitten I am with this little art venue. Only 2.5" x 3.5" yet so much creativity in such a little space. Blue hand dyed fabric...beautiful. Lace flowers and a lace butterfly...gorgeous. And the finishing touch...tatting! I am so overwhelmed by this lovely and thoughtful gift. Suz knows how much I love tatting and am trying to learn...without having success. She spent her precious time to tat for me. Thank you Suz for not only hand creating each of these beautiful and thoughtful gifts but for connecting with me and sharing our love of creating, gardening, nature, beading, stitching and more.
I am truly blessed.
P.S. Happy Birthday Suz...we also share the same birthdate and she paid attention and waited an entire year to surprise me!
Our world would be such a better place if we had a lot more Suz's to care about people and pay attention. Now I shall do my very best to be a caring and thoughtful person in return.
Happy August Summer Sunshine Smiles...
