(Note: Sorry, but you're all in for another sappyish post from me. I'm 5 months pregnant. I can't be expected to control these hormones. )
Don't you all just love this crafting blogging community? Seriously, I get so inspired by everyone out there, and it's such a treat to see all the creating that people are up to--often done "on the side", with young children in tow, or another profession as a day job (and as a side note to that, check out the wonderful post on Naive Knitting Blog last week about the "art" of "crafting"...great insight). But besides all the motivation just from seeing the end creations, I'm particuarly moved by the genuine support and energy that people are willing to share. One such person that totally fits that bill is Amy over at Angry Chicken. She's so freakin' cool. ;) A little bit ago, she sent me a lovely package full of all sorts of goodies--some patterns that were totally suited to me (felt wee folk!); lovely vintage buttons; beautiful stationary; and a kids CD that we just can't stop dancing to (Dan Zanes rocks!). Thank you, Amy!
Normally, I'd give this next fabulous creation it's own blog entry, but I think it fits nicely with the tone of 'sharing the internet love' that Amy so totally has. Lisa, of a bird in the hand does just that too--not only amazing creations, but wonderfully kind energy to boot. And so, a modbird just had to make it's way here to our home. Here she is, adjusting to life on the East Coast quite nicely. (Though, I thought she was getting a bit lonely, so a new modbird friend will be making it's way here soon too! Eek!).
Thanks to all for sharing the internet love.
