yesterday marked the eighth day that i had been saddled indoors with one enfant malade or another. over the past week i've dished out more cherry jell-o, wielded more thermometers, force-fed more medication, and watched more shaun the sheep than one should ever have to. my life was starting to feel a bit like groundhog day. but the sunshine arrived in many forms this morning and cleared the air. my artsygirl's fever broke in the middle of the night, march madness is on the horizon, my shop reached its 1000th sale, and in the mail today arrived a beautiful postcard from south africa (thank you asiye!) and this delightful package from the vintage shop 58 and grace. i had my eye on the vintage french game cards for quite a while and thought i'd best snag them before they were gone forever. and lucky me, since i happened to be her 100th sale, whitney surprised me with this gorgeous, elegant package of salvaged readers' digest book covers (adorned with an antique key!), meant for repurposing into journal covers. i love the colors and the patterns -- they will be PERFECT for my new journaling method because i won't even have to rip my journals apart in the first place -- she's already done it for me! thank you so so much whitney -- i'll send you a little surprise in return and i will pay your goodness forward to the lovely buyer who helped me reach my own milestone this morning!
a few more tidbits to share:
> registration starts monday for the 21 secrets art journaling playground workshop (go here for my class description - i've had a blast preparing for it!);
> liv is giving away three of my mini doodle bookmarks;
> i am woefully out of the loop on everything else;
> and thank you for all the comments on last week's post -- contact with the outside world kept me going!
