Do you ever have a day where you sit back and realise how very lucky you truly are?
Not for materialistic things or money or anything like that, but for the little things?
The fact that you are loved? or the fact that something made you smile? or you have a roof over your head? food in your stomach??
Today I was once again reminded how very lucky I am..I adore scrapbooking, I love everything about it, from the paper to the embellishments, but my pure joy comes from the friends I have made from this craft. And I have made some life long ones indeed...and almost of all these women with the exception of Lis I have never met (hope you're feeling better honey).
I recieved a package the other day, I opened it, and promptly burst in to tears...one of these beautiful women that I am honoured to call my friend..Dee made the most beautiful gift for Harrison, an altered letter H and a mini album hanging of the bottom..I took pics to share with you, but they truly don't do it justice..it is just divine..I love the fact that she made this for my little man, that she managed to capture how incredibly precious he is to me without having never met me.
Dee I just love it, I cannot thank you enough for it and it's so precious to us.
dee and I have the most wonderful talks...I really look forward to chatting with her, she makes me laugh constantly and I truly do class her as one of my closest friends now.
I want to tell you about another funky chick I have met through scrapbooking...Rachy..she is seriously one groovy chick...funny as hell..check out her blog. The diva recieved a congratulations card from her and her DD today for doing her ballet exam..I was so touched that she took the time to think of my girl and make her a card..She brightened her day ten fold today, and hence forth the card has been declared a national treasure from the Diva and has been carted around everywhere..LOL..Thanks a bunch for making it for her hun...you rock!
Are you sick of the soppy stuff yet?? LOL ok on to other matters!!
I am determined that I will teach myself how to sew..I have a bloody good sewing machine here and I am determined it will not beat me! I will sew something good god damn it LOL..so yesterday Im faffing around on the net and clicked on Mel Goodsells blog..I adore reading her blog..she makes the most beautiful things and saw that she had made these pencil holder notebook cover thingys!And I thought..I can do that..bugger it I will do it..even if it takes me all day...well I did it!! I made them!! I am pretty impressed with them, and am going to follow suit of Mel and make some for birthday presents! So without further ado...the notebook pencil holder thingys.
