Thank You, Kathi!!!

I received the sweetest of surprises in the mail today from my very dear friend, Kathi. It brought a tear to my eye and a huge smile to my face. Take a gander...
First up is the gorgeous box/drawer that she shared here. She did paint the wings on that butterfly with glitter and boy, is it ever pretty. My picture certainly doesn't do it justice. You'll just have to take my word for it. The stamp she thought I might like and I can't wait for my card-making mojo to return so I can use it effectively. And that charm bracelet! It has got to be one of THE most thoughtful gifts I've ever received.

Here's a close-up:
She told me that she started off with the I Love to Scrap, the special friend and knitting needles charms (she couldn't find one with a crochet hook). Those three thrill me to pieces, but then she added the cell phone (which opens, just so you know) to represent my busy life with the girls (no minivan charms out there, I guess) the baby booties with the girls' birthstones (sniff, sniff), the flower pot for my attempts at decorating the porch, the butterfly because I love them and the watering can for my backyard garden and nurturing spirit. 
How fabulous and special is this??!

Thank you SO very much, Kathi! I am humbled and honored by your generosity and thoughtfulness!

What a great way to start my week!
Hope yours started off wonderfully as well.
