Receiving and Giving

Yes, I know 3 posts in one day!  Sorry about that, but I have a lot to catch up on and I have a nice quiet house and its too hot outside, so I figured why not blog? 

So, many moons ago (during the OWOH event), I made a new friend all the way over on the other side of the earth - gotta love the internet!  I put my name in to be the adoptive mom of the sweetest little crocheted kokeshi doll.  I didn't win, but Li was so kind as to make me my very own doll.  Meet LiLy:

I wanted to return the love, so I sent Li something to catch wishing stars in:

She finally received it, so now I can share it with you.
I was so afraid it had gotten lost in the mail, but I guess travelling 1/2 way around the planet does take some time!

And now onto another new friend.  Debbie sent me these goodies in exchange for a little love I sent her way recently:

Sweet!!!!!!   Inspiration abounds!  Clear off the beading table -- I'm on a mission...............................

You Girls Rock!

Hello Lynn,

Yes, that long indeed! LOL Usually it takes around 2-4 weeks for something to arrive or be sent (even if the post office says 2 weeks :-) )

Your pictures of the box makes me miss the sun. It's been raining and raining and raining here on my side.

And like you said, glad to have internet and discover this blogging thing too :-)

It is so nice to be able to inspire creativity! I really treasure the new friends I have made through blogging--most of them through OWOH.
I can't wait to see what you create!

What lovely friends and beautiful gifts. The kokeshi doll is adorable and the goodies from Debbie are stunning. I know you will put them to good use. ;-)

The little open box to catch wishing stars in is beautiful! You are the *QUEEN* of boxes, my friend!

I was scrolling through your posts trying to find the one about Hannah's situation to read it to my son Jack -- and I found this post. How could I have missed it? I LOVE that little box! Awesome!
