The postal lady brought more birthday goodies! There was the wonderful birthday collage from Liz Smith which I love! See how she put my birthdate on it? And buttons! Love the buttons!! The colours in this piece are so pretty!
I also received an Indigo Girls CD from my friend Nikki which was on my wishlist. I can't wait to pop it in and have a listen. They are one of my most favourite groups-I love their lyrics and the harmonies and Nikki loves them as much as I do! I will think of her when I listen to it.
This birthday ATC came from my art angel, Karenann. She is always gifting me with unexpected goodies in the mail. I just love her art and she is just the most gentle heart. God, look at those layers!! Amazing and inspiring.
Celine totally surprised me with another goodie off my wishlist-a book called Fabric Art Journals! It has some wonderful ideas in it and I can't wait to have some spare time to really sit down and read through it.
My mother and father in-law sent me the loviliest birthday card which said "You are loved with a special love. You are a treasure to this family." That was just the nicest sentiment! My in-laws are great people and very good to me. I am lucky.
I have to say at this point, I am feeling quite overwhelmed, spoiled and blessed and I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who has sent their well wishes, gifts of spirit and of goodies, who have called and emailed. I wish everyone had friends as dear and thoughtful as mine. The world would most certainly be a better place.
