A Special Gift

Through my Full Tilt Boogie class, we have a great Full Tilt Boogie Yahoo Group.   It is just one of my favorite groups (along with Remains of the Day one) ever.   I have meant a lot of great people and learned a ton of stuff.....all thanks to Mary Ann Moss of Dispatch From LA.   You can read all about her wonderful classes on her sidebar and if you do, you won't regret it.  

One day I posted to the group about needing some elastic cording with the barbs on them.   Susie responded to me and offered to send me some of her stash but said that she would go looking for some as she is in an area (lucky her....I am so jealous) where she has all the big art stores.   Well it was just incredible how many places she went to searching for this for me but wasn't able to find any so she sent me what she had in her stash.    She went way above and beyond the call of duty on this one.

So, I told her I would send her some of my Vintage Die Cuts that she liked a lot and some vintage papers, etc.   

On Monday, she related that she had mailed me a package and included a "little something" with the elastic cording.  

On Wednesday, I received her package and just about fell over when I opened it up this package of a "little something' and saw this beautiful handmade bag.   And inside it was a bag of ephemera goodness.   I got to thinking when I received this that I was the one who is supposed to be sending a fabulous gift to her for all that she did for me.    Wow....I am still beyond surprised at her unbelievable kindness to me.  

Here is a picture of this beautiful bag Susie made.   As you can see she is a very talented mixed media artist and makes some gorgeous pieces of art.   Click on her name and it will take you to her blog.  

Isn't this just gorgeous.   Wow, I love it.   I am going to make a journal that will match the bag so that I can put the journal inside it. 

And all the ephemera she sent along with some of the elastic cording she sent.   Way too cool.

Thanks Susie.......I love it and it means a lot to me.

Have a great day everyone.

  1. Holy Schmoly! You did receive a wonderful gift (but then that's how I felt when I received yours :o)) The bag is incredible and all the goodies. It always amazes me what people have in their stash. Enjoy, Nancy. Hope the CEO is feeling better today. hugs, Donna
