What's a girl to do if she feels like chatting but has no way of sharing any photos of her recent work? Well, she has to scrape the bottom of the barrel & just "off-the-cuff" it with any random thing that comes into her head I guess?!
Since the demise of my pc I met up with one of my bloggy friends IRL! Yup it was fantastic!! So far I have met up with 2 people who I have met online & none have disappointed. In fact, they have both been even better in real life than I had allowed myself to imagine. Linda doesn't have a blog but reads mine & was kind enough to offer to bring me some scrappy goodness all the way from Australia when she visited her parents here recently.
I have some gorgeous pictures of my new stash but alas, they are all on my pc! So... so much for all the nutters "out there" on the internet, all the serial killers our relatives warn us about. On the contrary, Linda's gesture of generosity & selflessness has restored a portion of my faith in humankind ;-D Thanks Linda! Linda went out of her way to gather all my goodies, from 3 separate online stores in Australia, then pack them all up for me & transport them to me in perfect condition, travelling halfway to the Coast especially so we could meet up for morning tea...and didn't charge me a cent over the exchange rate conversion, so in effect the postage was free!
Why would anyone do such a thing for a "stranger"? Well, because we aren't strangers are we? Clearly my words touched her enough to prompt her to bless me & that folks is the true power of Blogging. Love, Love, Love to Blog! Next up is sweetie Pearl, who asked me for my address when she received my World Cup RAK, in order to send me one of her beautiful hand-made cards. Little did I know that she would include some of her amazing hand-dyed ribbons & one-of-a-kind handmade embellishments too. Woo Hoo - Happy Mail indeed!
Then there's Diana, who chose me to ship all her stick-pins to, all the way from her little island, because she's sorting through her stash & thought of...yup...me! All this in the last couple of weeks, whilst I've actually been officially OFF LINE. Goodness, imagine what could be in store for me when I'm actually back online lol???!!!
To say I feel blessed to know all these girls is a serious understatement. Has my life been enhanced through blogging? Hell yes! So there you have it. When I thought I had nothing to say who should come to mind but all of you! I never got a chance to wish you all "Happy Weekend Blog People" on Friday, so I hope I inspired you here to have a great week & Keep on Blogging. The rewards are tremendous ;-D
