Charity Mail

When I got home from my trip, along with several magazines and bills waiting for me were 2 items of very good mail! The first is from Hannah, even though it was my 'turn' a while ago to reciprocate from the good mail that Bella got. )I've been too poor and busy for good mail lately- that's my excuse anyway...) She sent me 2 wildflower seed packets with some gardening gloves (of course I don't have any!) and a cute card. (You can still make cute cards Hannah, so keep it up! I need your help and advice as to planting those flowers however... Maybe when I see you tomorrow you can give me some pointers!)

The second is from Lara, who I never made the connection with her blog, since she doesn't use her name on her blog! She is Kristi's friend from Texas, and emailed me a little while ago saying she wanted to help with Lola's Legacy. I told her that I still needed ribbon, and she sent me this wonderful package! She sent 12 spools of ribbon and 6 cards of Making Memories metal charms! She was even thoughtful enough to include the receipt in case I wanted to exchange any of them so they would coordinate! I used the ribbon last night to make a demo-album and it turned out so cute! Thank you so much Lara- I am indebted to you.

I have been so touched by the generosity of those I have approached about Lola'a Legacy, and even more touched by those who donated even though they were not approached. They simply saw a need, and filled it as they could. Lara sent me this beautiful package even though I have never even met her. My dad sent me $100, with which I was able to buy all of the adhesive at cost, and several ink pads. Robin and Jenn bought some of my scrap supplies, even though they could have bought the same things at Roberts using a coupon! This project would never be possible if not for everyone's generous contributions. It is coming together quite nicely. Thank you, Thank you, one and all.

How fun to come home to good mail! The seeds are gloves are very thoughtful. I realized Monday when we planted our garden how much I HATE to touch the dirt! I will be picking up some gloves!

The ribbon is so cute...and generous...and thoughtful. I too am always amazed at how good people are....I tend to think of them as always fighting the selfish, grumpy,too busy inner self that I am. Apparently it's just me.

Let me know if I can help at all with the party. I need to start sending good mail to people, it sounds like so much fun to receive and well to give.

I know I am desperate, but I want to be part of your blog community.

I still can't believe all that ribbon! I'm glad you got the flower seeds and I would be more than happy to offer any advice anytime. See you tomorrow!!!

I TRIED to comment on this earlier today but I kept getting shut out for some reason. I am amazed that Lara sent you all that stuff for Lola's Legacy. The benefits of blogging are indeed many and varied!

That was so thoughtful of Lara to send you all that cute stuff for Lola's Legacy, and so nice of Hannah to send you fun gardening stuff as well. Don't you just love the friendships that blogging has opened up for all of us?

It is such a great cause. It was nice going and finding something that you knew would make someone else happy at a time when happiness isn't the first word that comes to mind. Glad the supplies work. Have fun at the crop.
