Friends . . . and a Very Late Thank You!

Hola Sweet Bloggin’ Peeps!!


This is somewhat a non-crafty post, so if you’re not interested in non-crafty stuff, I will totally understand if you click over to the next blog in your reader.  Otherwise, grab a cuppa and sit a spell.


Actually this won’t be super deep.  I’ve just been sitting her in my sweet little crafting space (that is slowly but surely coming together as my most favorite place in the whole wide world – I’ll share pics when it’s totally done!) thinking about my life and how blessed I am to have an awesome family and incredible friends.  Most days I know that I don’t deserve such blessings, but I want the people in my life to know how very much I adore each and every one of them.  Yeah, I suck at articulating my feelings – I wish I could think of something profound to write here . . . maybe draw a tear or two.  Yep, can’t do it.  Bottom line is – I love and adore my family and friends and know that I don’t deserve them.  Thank you all for tolerating me and my lameness.


So, I also have a very late thank you (Emily Post would roll over in her grave at how late this thank you is) to share with one of my sweet blogging friends who sent me THE most beautiful Christmas card, along with some delicious ribbon and embellishments.  Isn’t that card just gorgeous?!  This is from my friend Piali – a woman who Piali 2has been so kind and generous with her comments and messages to me.  She is always saying the sweetest things about my projects. And what’s so amazing is that I know she’s just as generous with her kind comments to just about everyone she knows.  I don’t know how she does it – she’s a busy mom, wife, and also does double time taking care of her sick mom.  Oh, and did I mention that she lives in INDIA?!!  Yeah, she sent me this beautiful card and wonderful embellishments from INDIA!!!  Uh huh . . . I’m such a blessed girl to have such amazing friends, right?!  One more thing – she has a wonderful blog where she shares all of her cards, so you really need to pop in and say hello.  Piali, please know that I will never forget your kindness this past holiday season, and your friendship means the world to me.  Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for the beautiful card and delicious crafty goodies.  I’m so thankful to know you and to have you as a friend!!


Well, that’s it for me today, folks.  I have some challenge projects that I hope to get done in the next couple of days, so I’ll be back to share those, as well as a new CAS-ual Fridays Challenge project to share on Friday (Thursday, for you west coast peeps!!)  If you’re still here, thanks for indulging me and my blah, blah, blah.  I so appreciate you all!

Karolyn, I stopped in today to check out the blog and to tell all of you crafty people that I am jealous of you all and secretly despise you a sweet sort of way. I so would love that crafty little space and to actually sit and craft, but life has the best of me at the moment....oh yeah, and the fact that I really am not crafty at would think that wouldn't matter when you WANT to design, but does matter. So for now, I will sit by and drop in every once in awhile in hopes that one day, an inspiring thought will through osmosis, secrete into my system and I will emerge crafty. Keep up the lovely blog and blessings this year to you all. Sarah

I know what you mean about not having the right words . I think you got your message out very nicely about how thankful your are for all your blessings, and how much you apriciate all of your blessings. How kind of yor blogger friend too.
