When the postman rings...

Today, my mailman brought me something wonderful! And I apologize in advance for the photos - artificial lighting just doesn't do these justice!

Little porcelain bird
Some of you might have seen this little bird over at LeAnn's of SummersStudio. I just couldn't resist - this birdie is just so adorably cute!

Some of you might remember, a while back - we all wanted to "Get Excited - Make Things". This was a kind of pay it forward, which stipulated that you send out something you made to your participants in the year 2009. I'm thinking, we might be hearing about this some more in the weeks to come.

Well, I received this from LeAnn from this pay it forward:

One of her wonderful big lentil beads with chandelier crystals as a holiday decoration!!
LeAnn is an excellent craftswoman - she truly understands her clays and her porcelain pieces are made with so much love! In addition to this, she is a wonderful and supportive friend! Thank you, LeAnn, for every kindness you have bestowed on me in this year and for being my friend!!!

Seems like a good moment to thank all of you that I have come to know a bit this past year in the blog community. I thank you for your kindness, your support and your encouragement! You have helped me to push my boundaries and grow. Thank you for being there! I wish you all a most wonderful (and delicious) Thanksgiving with your loved ones!!!!
