Earlier this week, I received a gift in the mail that absolutely made not only my day, but still has me riding high. It was from Sophie, a jewelry designer that I recently met. She lives in Canada and I live in the midwest United States, but she has managed to touch my heart as if she was in the same room. In response to my creative slowdown that I have recently experienced, she arranged with Carolyn Saxby, who lives in England, yet another continent away, to send me some absolutely amazing fiber beads. Carolyn is a mixed media textile artist that sells her wares through her etsy shop.
Well, I am still an attorney, and I can smell a conspiracy a mile away. You see Carolyn included a gift card in which she forged Sophie's name. Sophie and Carolyn conspired to inspire and I couldn't be more inspired by these fabulous beads. They are just the kind of thing I love - handmade, unique and teal!
Carolyn also included a really nice chunk of fabulously textured fiber as well. I hope to have something beautiful to show you all very soon.
Sophie -- Thank You from the bottom of my heart. Your gift and thoughtfulness really touched me and I do consider you my friend. Carolyn, I love your art and I am so happy to have had your shop brought to my attention. Thank you both so much. I can assure you that there will be no prosecution on either the conspiracy or forgery.
I feel like Marina of Fancifuldevices. She is always showing pictures of wonderful things people send her for her art. Wow! Lucky me!
