Friends By Post


It's just me..... just me in front of the keyboard typing away at blog posts.

Yup... me and the keyboard sitting alone pouring 
out my thoughts. Hoping

others find me and like what I have to say.  And little by little, others sitting 

at their desks in front of their computer screens have discovered this blog.  

And they have turned into friendships!  Supporting each other on a pretty

regular basis.  Oh, to be heard! ...to be listened to!... to be appreciated!


That envelope you see?  It's from one of those friendships.  Rae, who writes

               "Raemissigman... Creating a Repurpose Lifestyle"

                     http://raemissigman.squarespace.com

sent this to me in the mail! You read that right... snail mail!! I adore her

creations and try to comment as often as I can.  In appreciation, she sent

me this package which I gingerly opened, using a seam ripper to cut the

threads at the one end.  No destroying this work of art!  And inside?  


fabric flower with felted and stitched leaves


a magnet...layers of reused paper stitched and painted.. embellished with fabric flower
a sweet notepad of writing paper
a "thank you" card with machine stitching, repurposed fabric and ink detailing

I was truly overwhelmed to be the recipient of her artwork!   To receive

a "just because" present from a friend on the other side of my computer

screen!   Blogs are like visiting someone's home and I most assuredly will

be knocking on her back door many more times.  Ready to sit down with a

cup of coffee (or in my case, tea) and spend some time with a friend.

Anxious to see what new project she has been working on. And you know

what?  I know she would be thrilled to have you drop on by, too.  She's just 

that kind of person!!!

  4. Kadee...
    This is so sweet it's makin me tear up. What a wonderful surprise. I agree, some of these friendships we make out here in cyberland are more meaningful then many I have with friends I've know forever. It is about listening & commenting & talking about the real you, sometimes real life is not like that.
    I'm so glad you liked my little Halloweenie Tutorial...I love these & have already started finding some cool vintage photos to make them for Christmas.
    Glad you stopped by friend & so happy you have made an amazing friendship on the other side of the screen!!!
    Hugs,
    Susie

  8. YOU soooooooo deserve a gifty!!! So cute. I know you will love using & seeing your new treasures.

    I hear you met my BFF Vickie Orlando at Petaluma! She asked me about you & I said yes we had become friends at Tiffany's. Email me please at giftcottagehe@aol.com as I'd love to get your phone number & call you to chat & see when we can hook up again. And talk Diana Frey classes (I was on the phone with her for over an hour today... I just adore her). Just me getting ready to blast off for yet another adventure but, wanting to hook up with you. HUGS!
