Purple Purse Thank You
I love this bag!It's a pretty good sized tote. My sister sent it to me a few months ago. I finally got the card made and handed over to my sister thanking her for it. Actually, this is my second attempt at a card. I wasn't feeling very creative over the weekend so the card is rather plain. As a matter of fact. I go thru this periodically-- the not feeling creative thing. If I didn't have a blog, or a job making cards, I wouldn't think twice about it. I would just go do something else. I do enjoy hearing from you in the form of comments and emails so I'll have to figure out a way to get my creative juices flowing. I also have some Hero Arts work to finish up so I'll need lots of creativity for that. The ladies over there are mega talented. I have to constantly remind myself not to be intimidated and just relax and do my personal best. I sound a little weak and needy today, don't I??
Saying on tag by Hero Arts. Purses and saying inside are GinaK Designs.
I'm cleaning my room again so that I can have space to be creative. I always make a big mess when I'm creating because I work on several things at once. While I'm in there, I'll drag out some stuff that evidently sparked creativity when I bought it (and subsequently put away never to be seen or used). Isn't that why we crafters constantly reorganize??
Do you believe in Miracles?
I don't know if this really qualified as an honest to goodness miracle, but I'm excited about it.
I just got back home from driving into Atlanta. We returned to GA State to retrieve my daughter's bag that she left behind last week-- totally intact. If you missed it last week and you want to read about it go to her blog.
By Friday, I had already resigned myself to the fact that those items we purchased when we were in a celebratory mode, were lost to us forever. Finders keepers and all that... Somebody "lucked" out. It was going to cost us $10 or $20, to replace her ID, but it's only money. We'll just have one less Pizza night, right? As far fetched as it sounds I still believed that the stuff would be returned to us. I told my daughter that when she lost it, the only people around were people like us-- orientation attenders-- and people that worked there... Surely there is at least one or two honest people still out there in the world. I know that if I had found the bag, I would have done everything in my power to find the owners, and I refuse to believe that I am the only one in this city that would do that. The weird thing is that her ID was in the bag, making it possible for that someone to find the owner. Otherwise, even someone with a good honest heart would have been at a loss. ( I say weird because she is usually disciplined and careful. She says that as she put the ID in the bag, she knew it wasn't a good idea, but we were tired and she figured she would fix it in the car.) She received an email on Friday night and called this morning to make arrangements to pick it up. All I know is I'm thankful that that little episode is over and she's a happy camper. Now, wouldn't it be nice if everything in my life right now would work out so easily...
Hey, have a happy Monday, OK? I'm going to head back into my workshop to create something! well... maybe after I get a nap....
