One of those creative and generous people is Karenann, a blogger and Rolodex card-alterer, who surprised me a few days with some friendship in the mail:
I immediately made use of some of them to decorate an envelope of paper goodies that I am swapping with Orit in Israel, as part of La Wendula's January paper swap:
So many thanks to Karenann for this unexpected treat!
Another bit of friendship came in the mail from April Cole. At the beginning of the month, she posted about an inspiring little project she was working on with a free downloadable bird graphic, some vellum quotations, and pretty striped paperclips. She offered four of her creations in a giveaway to the first four people to comment. I came in well after four comments, and she still sent me one of her treasures!
April always impresses me with her generosity and optimism!
