When I got my mail on Saturday, I was soooo surprised!!!  I knew that I won this coffee sack from
Dee at A Lapin Life, but she also sent me some pink tags and thank you notes!!!

How sweet is that? She said she saw them and thought of me!!  She is so awesome!
Thank you so much Dee!!  

And there was another box!  This one from Cindy Adkins of Whimsical Musings!

This is the little matchbox purse she just had published in Altered Arts Magazine!!
AND, she also sent Dee a collage made with burlap!! 
Just because!!

And that is my point!  I've never before just got things in the mail, for no good reason!!  Just because they thought of me, just because something reminded them of me!  Just because they are AWESOME!!!!!

And I thank you both for your thoughtfulness and kindness!!  I am a very lucky person to know wonderful friends like you!!!

And I am getting very close to the end of my "newbie" status!  I won't be able to join
Much longer.  I think 2 weeks?  I know I am a bit late, but I have to get my last posts linked up!!  Debbie is another person who does things just because.  She is a very awesome lady!!

Have a great day everyone!!  And thank you, my friends, again!!

    This weekend went by in a blink. I didn't even get to open my comp once I posted for PS
    Sigh....My webhost double their price for my website. No way I can't afford that, so my website is down and I have to find a new host or maybe do a Selling Blog.along with my Etsy sites. That is looking better and better, but I want to check out all the possibilities. I had to get a new e-mail....
    don't forget to paste it in your address book. Anyhoo, I'm glad you stopped by brighten my day. I guess you'd call my embroidery 'Old School Fiber Arts' My Aunts and Grandma would embroider for home decor and Mom would later take the embroidery and add to clothes and home decor with the embellishments added..LOL..we can't stitch a dress for our lives, but we can embellish for personality 8o) Now my Dad..he can sew to beat the band..his Grandma made sure and did it ever come in handy in the Marines..LOL..but he does not mention it hehe
    Well, i'd better off. It's gettin late and my fingers are fallin asleep at thwe keyboard.
    Type ya later!
