As is often the case, "my desk" has traveled to another corner of the house. On my desk...the players.
On Saturday I received a very exciting box in the mail...I had some idea of the contents and therefore waited until I could give it my complete attention. My daughter and I opened it up together in this morning's sunshine...I know I won't do this magical box justice, but here it goes...
Karen, of the blog Beelieve, participated in my give-away and alerted me to her own Mixed Media Give Away Contest. When I saw the amazing assortment of art materials and vintage treasures she was generously sharing, I immediately signed up. I was thrilled to be the winner and couldn't wait to see it all in person. I wasn't prepared for the true depth of this box. Karen was like my creative angel...lovingly packing each incredible item with sensitivity and obvious thought as to what would inspire. I'm still catching my breath!

In it are all the materials, notions, ephemera, and eclectic vintage supplies to excite any artist...but she made it personal and touched me so deeply.
I recently signed up for Smoothpebble's Illuminated Phrase, and now I have everything imagineable to make it happen. I was needing a little nudge and this collection just got me very fired up!
Thank you Karen, for your loving attention to details and courage to get personal and go deep with someone you've never even met. This world of blogs keeps blowing me away!
