The Gift of Friendship and Blessing

Happy creative weekend to all of you. The weather is starting to cool off here slightly so my energy is returning and now I'm back to blogging on a regular basis. While I was taking blogging break I did keep up with some of my "favorite blogs". I had left a comment on a blog awhile back and found more than a treasured friend in the journey. Sandy Babb  of  Quill Cottage  sent me the most wonderful package of her creative yummy goodies from her reject pile. My comment was on one of Sandy's post  Mess to Progress where she was referring to "experiments gone awry" that "mound up to a pretty good reject pile". I wrote on the comment form that I would love playing in her pile of rejects and didn't think any more about it, until..... Sandy sent me an email thanking me for my comment, Sandy you are so very good about reading and getting back to people on comments. I need to do more of that:)  anyhoo  Sandy asked for my address and said that she wanted to mail me a package. A few weeks later well.............Wa-la you can see for yourself and I don't even had it all spread out. Bunches of "Good Stuff" Sandy.... Thank you sooo-much and you know I will have a ball with these goodies. I see a Journal in this pile, perhaps a Prayer Flag or two and a "journey into a bunch of creative fun"  Now aren't blogger friends the "Best" and what a Blessing Sandy is in this blogging world. I'm also linking up today so you all can visit a bunch of  Pink fun over at  How Sweet the Sound with Beverly, who knows you may add another treasured friend to your list of blogging blessings. Hugs Sandy, love you!!

I love your site, especially the song you have playing. It is beautiful. Reminds me of going to church with my parents when I was younger. I would walk in the big large doors, with God waiting for me at the end. I am a new follower, can't wait to see more of your work.
