I have some people to thank today.
Some very special people.
The first special person is Karen from My Desert Cottage.
For the past two years Karen has labored tirelessly to
give bloggers a place to share their creative spaces with the world.
She works so hard getting everyone signed up and linked. She sends out e-mails and
prepares special posts to keep us informed of the latest news of the party.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Karen from the bottom of my heart.
What an awesome friend you are!
Another special person I want to thank today is Jo Packham of Where Women Create.
I would like thank her for the hours she must have spent going over
and over the many different studios that were linked to this party.
Can we even imagine what that was like? I am still making my
way through the list...and I will only have to do it once.
I am thankful today that she saw something in my little backyard studio that she liked.
I have still not been able to take it all in. I have never been published in anything, and am
a little nervous about the process. I am sure it will be a learning experience.
Thank you Jo for this honor!!!
The face to face friends that I have shared this with tell me to just sit back
and soak it all in. They are excited for me.
And I have received so many well wishes
from all of you and you are all saying the same thing.
So I think I shall do just that...sit back and enjoy it!
I have another special friend to thank today.
Debbie from My Shabby Roses had posted about re-purposing her Shabby Chic
window panels when she redid her bedroom recently.
She had made herself the cutest blouse ever!!!out of one of the panels.
She then stated in her post...'now what shall I do with the other two?'
Jokingly, I told her she could always send them to me!
So just guess what Debbie did!
She sent me one of her panels.
I just had to show you how this sweet gesture was packaged.
My gosh Debbie! You went over the top, the way you presented it to me.
How did Debbie know how much I love old keys?
How did she know how much I love tea stained tags?
How did she know I love old clothespins and vintage bias tape and roses?
Just look at the card she made!
Now I know how she knew I loved gardening, but to go and fashion such a
lovely card...this is friendship!
I think this will be me in coming years.
HA! What am I thinking...other than those stylin' garden clothes, it could be now!
And here is the curtain panel that I begged Debbie to send me.
Thank you so much Debbie for your sweet friendship.
And for a wonderful package to make my day.
Now...I can't wait to cut into this!
So today I am thankful for these special women, who have made this a very special week for me.
