Two Lovely Surprises...

Happy photograph by royalnoodle.


This week has already been a very happy week for me. Yesterday, the beautiful and extremely talented Nichole featured one of my pieces on her gorgeous blog, little brown pen. It was such a wonderful surprise, and made me smile all day. She titled her post "Dear Fringe", just like a warm personal message, and I was very touched by her generosity.

Today Etsy included my Lovely Librarian Cowl in their Etsy Finds article. Such a thrill and honor. Again, I wasn't expecting this. When my two dear friends, Kateri and Shana, contacted me almost simultaneously to congratulate me, I was completely surprised to learn about it.

I'm most grateful for both of these special gestures of appreciation for my work. I find that when life feels most stressful, or discouraging, magical little gifts float your way to remind you that you're headed in the right direction...

Yay! I was so happy for you just moments before reading this to see Lovely Librarian in my email's inbox. Off to see Little Brown Pen's letter to you now ...

It is funny how "life happens" like that, giving us what we need to carry on at unexpected time. Your work is so beautiful and you have such a wonderful heart. You deserve every success!
