You know you've got friends ...



when you come home to some happy mail :o)

First of all, thank you Em for letting me participate in this brand new blogging project. I think it's an awesome way of showing the world how priviledged I am to be able to count you girls among my friends. :o)

Our exchanges of "happy mail" are sometimes part of a more or less formal swap, but quite often I open my mailbox to find a totally unexpected package, sent with the sole intention of making me smile. These RAKs (Random Acts of Kindness) can be anything from a postcard that made the sender think of me, over some edibles I am known to crave (sour skittles !! :o)), to some craft supplies to try out a new creative expression.

And this is what I came home to on Monday : an adorable inchie book and a tutorial kit on how to make them. These lovely items were sent to me by Lisa, who in our little group of friends is renowed for her gorgeous inchies. She knows I am a fan of the inchies and inchie books that leave her skillful hands, and by sending me this tutorial as a RAK, she is nudging me to give them a try. And isn't that what friends are for : making you venture outside the box and opening your eyes to a whole new world of possibilities?
