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"
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!!!
