"Gratitude is a twofold love--
love coming to visit us and love running out to
greet a welcome guest."
(Henry van Dyke)
I've received some lovely surprises in the mail that I wanted to share!
This first package came from Catherine
I was so lucky to get to meet Catherine during one of her recent trips to Las Vegas.
A beautiful sun catcher.
Such a lovely note about my upcoming move,
Thank you Catherine!

Then, Tracy from
chose my name for this beautiful moleskin journal that she embellished.
I've kept this in a special place and have started using it. She also sent me a lovely ATC that I am sorry to say I realized I packed it in a box already with some other handmade cards, gifts, treasures that friends have given me. I should have taken a photo of it sooner!
I love it Tracy, thank you.
made lovely "wishing stars" for her blog friends and embroidered your wish onto your personalized star.
This was before we found out we were moving. We were waiting for the news to see if my husband got the job in Seattle or not, and I told Jillayne I would like my "wishing star" to say "rain."
I think my "wishing star" worked!
Thank you Jillayne.
I hope you'll visit these ladies if you haven't already.
There is just so much love and inspiration out there in blog land isn't there?
Thank you to all of you that visit here and share your kind words, friendship, and love.
I truly appreciate everyone of you!
