inspiration monday

inspiration comes from everywhere....and this past week, it came twice in my mailbox!   i first received this fabulous little fabric heart-in-hand yo-yo from the very sweet carol sloan.  carol is a very talented mixed-media artist and creates SO many wonderful things!  this was created using some of her own "rusty fabric"....and the cute note was written on a piece of her fun and whimsical doodle-art paper!  her little package was a total surprise and completely made my day!  thanks again, carol...you definitely put the sweet in sweetpea!  

and, then just yesterday i went to my mailbox and pulled out this wonderful piece of love and happiness!  the envelope alone had me grinning from ear-to-ear....and then i opened it....oh.my.goodness!!  created by the incredibly talented judith leitch, she has once again left me speechless with this beautiful piece of original artwork!  and as huge as her talent is for design, color, and letterforms, her heart is even huger!  sweet, sweet friend, judith....your kindness and generosity brings tears to my eyes and i have been so blessed to call you friend for these many years!   thank you so much for sharing your time and talent in creating this for me!

Wonderful, wonderful surprises. Such blessings from good friends. They are lovely and you are well deserving. I remember making yo yo's as a child for my granny. And that fabric sings Lori.
