Packages received and Friday Finds: On Wednesday I was so happy to receive the beautiful little handmade book from Diane at soonerorlater. I'd gone on her blog to say that I would participate in having an item of art sent to me if I promised to send to five people one of my art items if they responded to my request. And so this item arrived. I was very pleased. It came at a good time. The week had been "crazy". Dear Greg said certainly I would be able to make one too. So besides the actual little book to journal in I have received inspiration. Thanks Diane.

Then on Friday I received all my Sakura items from artsy Fran where I was so fortunate to have my name drawn to receive the prize. I especially love the gellyroll moonlight pens. I'll have to try gold shadow on different paper. It says to use white fibrous paper. The sticklers are also fun. I think I'll have a hard time trying to keep them from our daughter. She wants the fish for her cell phone. We'll see. Fran also very kindly included some of her collage papers. They are wonderful. People here in the art blog world are extremely kind. It almost feels like my birthday. I must get my own packages, and especially the items for in them, ready to send very soon. I've entered a postcard valentine swap. I have until the 14th to get ten postcards completed. Hopefully they can be ready sooner. We'll see.

Friday's finds is about more fabric. I continue to be inspired by all the beautiful pieces of art that my friend Jude makes. I love the bright and cheery colours. I've only purchased in small amounts. I already have quite a lot of fabric. Cat already started cutting some of the orange fabric for postcards. I'll help her make valentines for some of her helpers and friends.

Angels be with you.
