My craft friend Sandra Carter is a wonderful, kind hearted, generous person. Words just cannot express the depths of goodness this lady exudes. I have known her for years now, possibly 13 years now. She is a friend for life, one you can share your deepest darkest secrets and know it's safe, she is also a shoulder to cry on. We do not live close enough to visit for a cuppa tea but we have gotten together about 3-4 times when we venture to her neighbourhood on our travels. Both armed with stuff for each other LOL which included books, knitting and crochet, craft and Sandra always brings dessert. So last week I got this parcel that travelled across Australia almost and finally got to me.
Sandra knew I'd been going through a very rough emotionally taxing time and sent me this box of cheer me up goodies. Inside was a wonderful array of useful gifts.
Cards in the back for me to use, in gorgeous designs that I love.
Packets of flowers to adorn my cards with.
White and grey fingerless gloves for me to use at work usually as I work outside in the cold...love them as I have never had one.
Ruler which straightens out to a long version and holds 2 pens which I am always losing.
A positive card which reads: Some roads just aren't meant to be traveled alone. i'm here if you need me. (made me cry when I read this because through all my thick and thins Sandra has always been there as a shoulder to cry on-via email or phone).
Book thongs she made and a verse in the packets which reads:
When you need to
mark a book
and go along your way
this lovely little
Will hold your spot all day
Just read until
You've finished reading
book real wide
and where the crack is
The book thong
can then slide
hahahaha that is a funny verse, taking off the bikini thong
Super clean cloth for my computer, (she can see my dirty keyboard???)
and lastly some UM stamps for me to use.
Due to my not so good few past weeks I have not had the where-with-all or mental capacity to do any unpacking. My friend Nola always said to me that when she is upset or down-in-the-dumps, she never bakes a cake because it never works out.
