I am very rarely given anything handmade by someone else, which is such a huge sadness to me because I love handmade things. So imagine my heart soaring surprise when my fantastic delivery lady brought me this incredible work of heart.
Made from Scrabble letter tiles, to spell out the words – but not just any words. They’re words which she associates with us. It must have taken an age to plan it out, and work out how to make the right words work with each other. It’s such a truly wonderful work of art and I’m thrilled to have it – so much so that I’m in awe of it.
The ‘cobweb’ is made from sparkly, twinkly black wool and is so beautifully done! She even went to the great trouble of making the fabulous backing paper herself! I love it, and love my delivery lady too. She’s the most incredible lady and I’m so very lucky to have her. She’s always so happy, so cheerful, so quick to smile, so caring, and … I love her to pieces just for being the person she is.
I should have actually shared this some weeks ago when I first received it, but between one thing and another I didn’t manage to get it to the blog here. But better late than never, as they say. This phenomenal gift lives in my craft room and hangs on the wall above my printer where I see it every time I enter and leave the room. It makes me feel all warm and loved up when I see it – as it’s kind of a visible validation that someone cares enough about me to take the time and trouble to make something so very special, just for me . It’s an instant warmth to the heart and smile to the face.
Well, I hope everything in your world is groovy (cooo … there’s a word from several years ago!). Do let me know you’ve visited simply by chatting in a comment. I’ll always reply. You don’t have to chat about my word art gift if you don’t want to. Tell me what you’ve been up to or even where you’re going on holiday if you like. Anything! Chatting in blog-land is such a fabulous thing to do as it gets us all talking to each other, and that, in this day and age of technology and 140 miserable Twitter characters, can only be a good thing!
In the meantime … have a truly blessed day and … thank you so much for coming and spending a few minutes with me. ❤
