Thrift Thursday With a great Big Thanks
I am long over due for sharing some serious Blove (you know blove right?... Blog+Love= blove)
Last summer I got to have an amazing day with other bloggers, most whom I knew pretty well from swaps or their close proximity...
But there was another blogger who I did know of (her blog, Scissors Paper Glue , is just lovely) but hadn't made that extra connection with. That day she was so nice and open and fun and it turned out I knew her sister from a favorite crafting experience . It was so fantastic to get to know her better.
She inspired Jacob and shared her camera with him. She was so kind.
He instantly became interested in Polaroid and I found one for him (not as photogenic as mine though...) an he got it for his birthday.
She sent him a birthday present too. Precious discontinued Polaroid film. And a beautiful Polaroid that she took. But above all she gave the present of showing a young man the kind artistic respect that can only inspire, not just creativity but something more...
"But, Mom," he said, " We only met her Once! Why is she so Nice?!"
And she sent a present for me.
It now hangs where I can see it every day and it makes me so Happy.
But that wasn't all. She also wrote a post that made my week and his week too.
Jen, you are so very special. I am so glad we met!
