What a lovely surprise!

These days all we ever hear is how bad things are and how much nicer people were to each other in the past. Well something happened to me today to throw that right out of the window. The postman arrived with his usual bills and business stuff but nestled amongst it was a parcel. I opened it up to find it was from Ruth (Tip Top Toppers Things Blog) from my Design Team and this was what was inside...

A card sending me some post Christmas cheer, a lovely mini note book for writing down my design ideas and a collection of stamped images, beads and other crafty bits. It was all beautifully wrapped in a brown paper and string parcel.

It's one of the kindest things I ever had happen to me. I was all tearful when I first opened it but now I am just filled with a lovely warm glow. I want to say a great big THANK YOU to Ruth for making my boring old day so much nicer. Ruths simple act of kindness has made me realise that it doesn't take alot to just show kindness to another person and make their life just a little brighter. It's something I am definitely going to try to learn from.

Have a wonderful day

  4. What a lovely surprise - and what a kind gesture from Ruth.
    Maybe we should start a "send a card a month just because" campaign - it would cheer so many people up to receive something like that as a surprise, I think

  5. I know Anice, how sweet of her to do this for us all :)
    Reminded me of the PIF's that were doing the rounds a few months ago......Watch out....he's coming with more!
