from the heart

this little package of random kindness that i received from becky shander falls somewhere in the category of "beyond spectacular"! from beginning to end, this is artistic brilliance at its best! becky has masterfully tea-dyed repurposed dryer sheets to create this magnificent envelope.....


.....and i could gaze at the sweet little tag and vintage hat pin that's holding this bundle together all day long! but the transparency of the dryer sheet offers a little peek as to what's inside....


....a magnificent little book created from fabrics, lace and dryer sheets! everywhere i look i see little "becky touches"....from the sweet birdie transfer to the vintage sparkle embellishment....it's all perfect!


and it just keeps getting better! don't you just love the message on the inside cover?!


becky has ingeniously sewn the pages to create pockets (using more of her fabulous tea-dyed dryer sheets!).....and wait until you see what's inside one of them!


another hand-sewn pouch adorned with lace and happiness....and inside is the most wonderful little ornament with the reminder to "follow your bliss"!

and now i come to the part where i find myself with my mouth wide open, but no words will come out.....because there truly are no words to describe how spectacular this little parcel is!
becky, your kindness in thinking of me, and generosity of your time in creating this for me fills my heart with joy! i cherish this sweet masterpiece that you've shared with me, and i thank you SO much!

becky shander is a very accomplished and published artist. please visit her at her website here or at her blog here....it's a pure shot of inspiration, straight from the heart!

Oh Lori....what an extraordinary gift! Truly, there is no distinction between the loveliness of Becky, you, the act of kindness, & the talent that's shared amongst friends. Have a great day....and viva-la dryer sheets!

Oh my lord....what an amazing gift, indeed! Surely, a person as special as you is very deserving! :) It's funny that you posted this just now because for the past hour I have been sitting here researching dryer sheet art ideas and can't wait to try some!

Lori, your kind words about my work is so very appreciated! You are someone who already knows the importance of following your bliss, and I just wanted to make you a little something to celebrate this.

Just had to stop in and thank you for your kind words on my blog, they mean more than you know.

Wow! What a loving little package of random kindness! I love the recycled dryer sheets. I remember you mentioning them before. The gift inside is just as special as the package itself. I love the sweet Lori tag and hat pin too! Beautiful creation Becky!
