A Red Letter Day!



Oh My Goodness! I don't know whether to take you to task or give you oodles of hugs. Not a one of you paid heed to my swap directions, "No Hostess Gifts, Please!" What's a Hostess to do? Be very grateful and very humbled by your immeasurable thoughtfulness.


Oh Meri, I hope you know how touched I am to receive this Bluebird sculpture from you. You understand very well how difficult it is for me to accept friendship offered and how blessed I am that you are teaching me how to do just that.



And thank you Shirley for your quiet grace and friendship. Each piece of art I have received from you wonderfully captures all that is important to you. I know that your family considers you the Key to their Hearts!



Kim, My husband thinks this Valentine is for him as your family is from his favorite Place to Be, and because your family has built an ice rink! I told him he will just have to visit your Valentine right where it is suppose to be, My Craft Room! We BOTH adore it!


Oh, be still my heart! Thank you Kim for all that you share.


Holly, Cotton Picki'n Fun has sent me her wonderful Valentine Angel. What a joy this Red Letter Day has been. What a joy to know YOU!

Elizabeth,
Your nut cups are just precious, as is everything you create. I am so happy you could use the goodies I sent. I knew you would make something spectacular. Thank you for your generosity and kindness. Your wonderful stories take me back to the "Dick and Jane" days, and a wonderful childhood we all dreamed of having.
Thank you for enriching so many lives.

Your craftroom is such a fun place to visit! It speaks of the kindness and admiration of friends made - and it speaks of you, because you were the first to give. Everything is so inspiring - I just need more time!

What sweet and precious Valentines!! I love each and every one of them. It is so fun to see the personality of each ornament/Valentine and how it matches the person that sent it. I love that about hand crafted items. You have been such a wonderful source of inspiration for me. Last year was my big change year - either I need to use my craftroom or give it up. It was basically just wasted space. Boring blah room above the garage. I chanced upon your blog and found what I longed for: breathing creatively or Creative Breathing. Your craftroom and crafts inspired me to no end!!! I cleaned up my act, respected my craftroom and got busy. So a big THANK YOU my friend for allowing me to breath with a creative spirit and showing me that I can make anything I want too as long as I have plenty of felt, strong thread and a sharp needle!!!
