A Random Act of Kindness?

I must, once again, share with you the outstanding generosity of our cyber friends. This one in particular, Rose, really went much further than a RAK! Rose posted a question on her blog, Simply Rose 1,about an item she was working on and promised a RAK to whoever answered it correctly. I now believe that Ms. Rose purposely asked the question, somehow knowing that I would answer correctly therefore securing the RAK! There is no way this was just a random gift. Rose put much time and thought into what she gifted me with! She knew I had been coveting the Crafty Secrets Birds and Botanicals note pad, and all things ‘Vicki C.’ She had previously sent me the link to where I could buy the note pad but I declined as soon as I saw I would have to pay more postage than the cost of the pad! Then she turns around, buys the pad and pays the postage to the UK only to send it back across the Atlantic to me along with other scrapbooking items. And look at the little gift tag she attached! Isn't it precious? She is so unbelievably generous that I feel guilty just thinking of all the fun I’m going to have at her expense! There were also yards and yards of yummy laces, tassel trim, tassels, buttons, and beautiful golden cutouts. She chose all these things with sisterly love and if that wasn’t enough . . . she actually went out and got me this adorable and special little flip flop charm (she knows me)! Oh, Rose! She has to be the most generous person in the UK! (I really do use a lot of exclamation points, don’t I?) In order to honor her, gift I must study and design some awesomely beautiful item to do it justice. Dear Rose, please know that though it will take me a long time, I will make the most of your gifts. And thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I have a bunch of emails to answer and blogs to hop so I must be going for now. I have been absolutely remiss at my correspondence since Kimberli took ill, and owe many thank yous! Guys, I promise I will answer each and every email you sent me, it might take me a while but I won't forget a single one of you, PROMISE! Keep in touch and don't forget the Freebies that are posted prior to today's post!

Tootles!
