Random Acts Of Kindness

This week I have been truly blessed with "Random Acts of Kindness". Yesterday the postie left me a parcel from a very lovely lady Joy from Bundaberg. Joy knows I love to draw and look what was inside...
A lovely tin of pencils (all grades) and a great sketch book. Joy has made be a gorgeous bag to carry them in as well. They fit in perfectly so I can take them with me whenever I want to. Thank you so much Joy. You are kindness itself. If we had more people like Joy in the world it would be a much better place xxx
On the subject of drawing I have been doing a little. Are you ever looking for a quilt label to stitch for that special quilt or handmade Christmas gift? Well I know I am and so I decided to draw a series of  8. I will always have them at hand then.....there a couple of Christmas ones, stitching ones and ones  to use for any occassion....want a peek at the drawings?
  I hope to have the drawings ready in a little packet along with the Bears Alphabet very soon.
What do you think?
Ok I am off to unwrap my new pencils and smell that brand new paper...weird I know but hey I like weird!
Please be kind to one another as it really does have the power to lift others up.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
