Sending a big *thank you*...

Thursday, February 23, 2012

This post is for some special friends who have helped me to celebrate a couple big days in this new year. Thank you to each and every one of you...
I made this little party favor for Charlotte Ann and Nancy L. Charlotte Ann, I have appreciated your excitement and your sweet comments, and, Nancy, so good to hear from you again! You've been around for at least 1/2 my blog life and I appreciate you hanging in there with me. I'm looking forward to visiting and seeing what you have been up to on your blog lately! (Charlotte Ann, I'm not seeing a blog for you--let me know if I'm missing it!) The party favor is made from a glassine bag and is trimmed out with some handmade tissue trim I've been playing with in preparation for Spring and Easter projects...

It has some little 1$ stamps to create with tucked inside...
And tucked inside the big back flap is a card made with one of the stamps...

Simple, but I'm appreciating *simple* more and more!! ;) Hope you two ladies enjoy this little token of my appreciation of your support, encouragement, and good wishes during the last couple weeks.

Tracy, Nancy (NickleNookNancy ;), Susan and Meredith...I hope you know how dear you are to me! If it weren't for the 4 of you, I might just hang it up! I so enjoy your friendship, and SO APPRECIATE your support and encouragement, and would love to send you one of my handmade party gifts! Just email me and let me know your preferences from 1st to 4th, and I'll do my best to please you all! (Let's use: October Afternoon Memo Board, Nature Memo Board, Art Journal 1, and Joy Art Journal) Everyone can email me at with mailing addresses, and you last 4 ladies with your preferences also. I'm so looking forward to time to visit everyone again!!

My next big project is stenciling Susan's bedroom. Susan, shall we blog about it?! And What do the rest of you think? We'll just have to see about it!

Love you all! Thanks so much!! (Jillian has finally turned the corner! She's looking and sounding like herself again!!)

Thank you for all the hard work you've been doing...while we just sit back and enjoy all the deliciousness! Oops...I just realized I forgot to give you my address!

  2. You are the sweetest thing!! What a lovely post recognizing people who mean so much to your blogging life... Such a good idea. It's amazing how we can become such good friends with people we've never 'met' - I am so grateful for the bonds I've developed through my blog. I feel like we've known each other forever, and yet I am not sure it's even been a year since we discovered each other, has it? I will go email you!
