This week there is not a lot going on my desk. Unfortunately my time has been taken up with my beautiful elderly father who has been in hospital! Last week he had a mishap to which we had to admit him into the hospital finding out he had a couple of strokes. My sweet father is 89 years young and has seen a lot in his lifetime, first and foremost taking care of his happy brood of 10 offspring! Phew....doesn't that just make you tired thinking of it! LOLOL He has been the best of the best!!! So consequently, I was busy last week at the hospital and not doing any crafting. Hubby, kiddos and I stole away over the weekend to clear our heads and start back a fresh week this week. My father is now in rehab and we are looking towards the future for his care. Not sure where it will be headed, but I know that God does! Keep him in your prayers my friends!
So all that being said, I WILL share what GLORIOUS, LOVELINESS, I do have on my desk!!! I have an AMAZING package from my beautiful overseas BFF Zsuzsa!!!! Woop, Woop!!! Zsuzsa and I have known each other a couple of years now (can you believe it) through our online art groups that we are a part of. She is just a precious, encouraging, inspirational, make me laugh out loud (LOL....hee hee), kind of friend. That seems like the best kind doesn't it????? Well, we have NEVER been paired up after all this time through various SWAPS that we have taken part in and so we just decided we'd swap because we want to!! So before I left for a couple of days this past weekend, my
surprise came in the mail!! I tell you what, I couldn't wait to get in the house fast enough to open my package!! My daughter, who has heard all about this Zsuzsa person over and over, kept saying "hurry up mom, geez you are so slow!!!" LOLOL And I'm like...."don't rush me, I can't rip the package!!!" LOLOL Can you just imagine the scene???
Would you look at ALL THAT GORGEOUSNESS!!!!!!! The package itself was AMAZING, hence why I didn't want to be rushed! LOL, but the goodness inside was just yummy! Zsuzsa had featured some of this goodness on her blog not too long ago, where I have to admit, I was looking on with envy, and then low and behold it is now mine to behold!! Yay me, right???? Each ATC had it's own lovely envelope whereby, I believe, they were geli printed, just like the big envelope. The paint she used was so lovely that they almost felt like fabric! Just gorgeous! And then to top it off were the gorgeous ATC's inside!! I wish I could say that one was a favorite, BUT THEY WERE ALL FAVES!
Zsuzsa also made me a tag with the same gorgeous style and then take a gander at they beautiful card that she made as well! I have it displayed out where I can see it on my shelf because all that beautiful color with that "friendship" sentiment just plain makes me happy......can you see my HUGE grin from ear to ear?? Along with her homemade treats, Zsuzsa graciously gifted me with the cutest stamp set, that is oh so timely. I don't have tiny stamps per say, and I really needed these for some upcoming projects that I have slated on my desk!! In addition she had that gorgeous knapkin and digital prints that I can't wait to use on some projects!! Zsuzsa my wonderful friend, THANK YOU hardly seems adequate, but I do thank you from my heart! I love it ALL! Next thing on my agenda is to purchase some sleeves to put all my glorious ATC's in. I know some folks use baseball card sleeves to do so, so I will be headed to the Hobby Lobby before long to get the same!!!
You know, I LOVE how God blesses us with those who fill our lives with a purpose. We may not always know or understand, but God doesn't make mistakes and I believe "sets" people in our midst to bless us out of His great love for us! He knows our need before we do to fulfill His purpose and will for our lives! I don't take these things lightly and continue to be His grateful child! Thank you Father for your goodness and love for me!
I hope your Wednesday is fill with His abundant love!!
