We had a very busy Christmas/New Year season this year - what with snowstorms, and ice storms and travel and colds, and Dad's 95th birthday and business travel, I never knew if I was coming or going. I still have laundry to do (but it takes a back seat to blogging, knitting and drawing). So I haven' t had the time to thank my friends for their wonderful surprises.
The talented Laurel of Studio Lolo sent me this wonderful signed 8x10 print - after I bought one tiny little card on line at her etsy store. I just love this image, I found it so refreshing and delightful. This is going in a special spot in my house. Thanks Lolo - it really means a lot to me.
Kerstin had a wonderful giveaway where you wished for something and your wish came true. I wished for a good night sleep - and received this beautiful, lavender filled, wonderfully scented pillow and have had deep dreamless refreshing sleeps since then. It's so wonderfully made and delicate. Kerstin, you are such an imaginative friend - thank you SO much for this pillow.
And my buddy Lynn sent me a relaxing tape, which really works! Her voice is calm and soothing and somewhat magical. I use it during the day to relax and refresh - and it also helps put me to sleep (on my magic pillow). Funny thing is that I go to sleep with the iPod buds in my ears and when DH takes them out - I sleepily protest "I like that tape!".
So, very belated thank you Laurel, Kerstin and Lynn - you made my crazy holiday very special!
