It's here!



For some reason my head felt like it was in a vice a good share of last week. What with snowstorms and blizzards appearing every few days its no wonder. So when this delightful package came in the mail I can't begin to tell you what joy it brought to me! This is the canvas that I won from Sara over at Gitzen Girl . It is resting on my computer stand and the colors really pop against the yellow wall flanked by the red wall in my kitchen. As if the colors aren't enough to get you excited the message walked right into my heart the first time I saw it. "It's not what you gather but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived." Can I just say, Sara has beautiful handwriting which really completes the whole canvas. I'm not sure why I was so lucky to be the name that random.org picked out of the 20-30 blog peeps that entered each day? I just know I showed up each day believing I COULD win, not that I WOULD. I also know the true "prize" is waiting for me every day I show up at Gitzen Girl... the blessing of her message through her words and her spirit are the real gift. Truly the only thing that tops reading her blog every day is this little piece of her that I can see and touch every day. It brings me joy beyond measure to have my own little handcrafted canvas from Sara. Thank-you!

    Love the saying. I know it looks great on your shelf! Colors are perfect. The saying is fitting. You are forever scattering 'good', 'joy', 'love', and 'friendship' everywhere you go!
    Thanks for being a friend!
