The package has landed...



So I called my friend Elizabeth this afternoon and interrupted her day to have her check her mailbox. 

WooHoo... the package I mentioned has arrived!

Let me tell you...it was so much fun to be on the phone while she opened it.

I love making a gift geared directly for one person. Every little detail is specific to them or how they fit into my life.

It's even better when the friend "gets" the altered art sort of thing. Such as the  rusted piece of metal strapping I used. I picked this up on a walk with my nieghbor...who I'm pretty sure thought I was a nut job...but puts up with me anyway. :)  Actually, she's getting used to me stopping for odd bits of junk as we walk.

Halle ! Your book is absolutely wonderful, what a precious gift you created for your good friend. Elizabeth certainly is one to really appreciate every detail too!
btw, you sound perfectly normal to me ... rescuing rusty bits of this and that!
This is a real treasure!!!
