A shot of new energy

Look what I got today! My friend and colleague, Wendy, sent me this wonderful surprise box all the way from New Zealand…

Ok, I sent her a couple of ATC´s some time ago – but I never expected this much in return: all different sorts of tags, accordion tags, faux postage templates, stamps, mesh, rub-on-letters and other elements, you name it, for collage- and scrapbook making. Wendy also sent a small collection of her ATC’s – and the most wonderful little “book” about the love of needlecraft – made for me. We certainly share a deep passion for handmade needlework, vintage fabric, ATCs, journaling and stuff like that!

Actually, I came home from school today with a splitting headache, took a pill what I do more than rarely, found the box in my mail – and after unwrapping I’d realized I’d forgotten everything about my head. Can’t tell what really cured the headache, but I prefer to believe it was universal love – canalized via this gift. A wonderful, interesting and overwhelming bunch of new materials and inspiration – on an ordinary, plain, grey Tuesday!
