An online friend contacted me on Saturday to let me know a box of goodies she no longer wanted was headed my way. I've been gifted by her before and am always thrilled when she sends me a note letting me know I'm going to be gifted again.
I'm feeling so blessed. How thrilling is it to have so many ways to receive the supplies I need to continue my crafty quest? I always, somehow, get exactly what I need to keep going.
I am most humbled to receive these gifts. Especially when someone, for no particular reason, sends me things they think I can use.
This awesome box of goodies arrived yesterday. It was 9 lbs of jewelry supplies, small glass tiles and tumbled glass, rocks and fused pieces. I took some photos (sorry the 1st one is a tad fuzzy but you get the idea) to show you a little sample of what I received. So much was gifted that I couldn't get them all in a photo.
|cords, chains, wires, cloth bags, jump rings|
|pendants and bracelet blanks in gold, silver-plated, pewter, bronze, copper|
|micro-mini tiles, millefiori, large glass gems, tumbled, fused and tiled glass|
Gold, bronze, copper, silver plated, pewter, glass, chains, cords, wire. This box was filled with inspiration. Amazing. The day before, when I worked on the pique assiette pendants, I was almost out of pendants and thought: I'm glad I have the few pendants I have to allow the muse to play today. And now, the muse can dance and play for months!
My generous friend told me, when I thanked her through my teary eyes, that a little voice told her to send it all to Cindy. How much do I love her and that little voice?!
Stand back folks, because a major flurry of activity jewelry making mosaic madness is about to commence! Woo-hoo!
