I think there is a conspiracy afoot.
My husband came home from work today and exclaimed, "Has the world gotten together and said, 'Send Paula something in the mail!'?"
I hardly ever receive snail mail. Yesterday, I had a lovely letter from my Aunt Helen and a sweet thank you card from Phyl. Today, I received this beautiful handmade card from Karen, one of my fellow Word Art Wednesday Design Team members (the turtle made me laugh out loud!):
And, I received a large package from the Netherlands! Look at what was inside!
The wonderful Wendy Swenne, another Word Art Wednesday Design Team member, MADE this awesome journal -- especially for me! An amazing four-page letter (handwritten!) outlined the details of how she'd chosen each element with me in mind!!!! I tell you -- it took a long time for the tears to stop welling up -- I was so moved by her thoughtfulness. As you can see, she also sent me some beautiful stamps and embellishments.
Other wonderful artist friends from the Christian Paper Artists yahoo group sent me bits of their artistic loveliness in the fall, too. I can't tell you how much it means to me that people are thinking of me, and taking the time to make special things for me! I have been feeling generally unwell of late, and it is such a boost to my spirits to receive these wonderful gifts from the heart!
THANK YOU to all of you that have blessed me with your wonderful creativity!!!!!
