A Gift from the Heart

Dear Friends,,

I wanted to share with all of you a gift I received from my friend Jan over at Laughing Dog Arts. She sent me this lovely gift the other day, Jan had hand sewn all the beads and fibres onto this lovely brown velvet fabric. I was in shock when I opened the package to find this wonderfult gift from her. A while back she had sent me a couple of CD's that I was interested in and so I thought I would send her some beads that I had as a little thankyou for the music.
She touched me with her generosity of spriit and her talent is stunning. Please go visit her at Laughingdogarts.blogspot.com.
You will love her blog!!.

I wanted also to thank you all of you who have become followers of mine. I see I have a few more recently and I just wanted to say WELCOME!!! Also I noticed that I have over 80 posts now and so I would like to have my first Giveaway when I reach 100!!! Yippeee!

Love, Smiles and Lots of Hugs to you All!!!
