My Package Arrived

I was so lucky to win a giveaway from  Diane, a wonderful book, "The Artist's Quest for Inspiration" by Peggy Hadden! You can check out Diane's blog as she is one very talented and creative lady.  My package arrived!
I opened up the large manilla envelope to find:
 something wrapped in pattern paper topped with a lovely tag, with ribbons and laces, and silk flowers.
 Oh, wait! There's a second tag--one I can use for a special gift. Aren't they fabulous? The blank one reads "Seek Joy", but I think Joy has already found me!

 But there was more! Two packages of pretty tags, and a set of Diane's recipe cards!

What's that underneath?
 Ooooh, look! A set of Diane's Christmas cards! I do love snowpeople, so this design is a perfect one.
 All these extra goodies were packed along with the book I won in Diane's giveaway. Talk about generous!

I know I was just beaming while I did the 'happy dance' all around the kitchen.
As an artist, I am often inspired by the everyday. Sometimes, though, inspiration is sought, but not found.                                                   I have been flipping through this book by Peggy Hadden, and I'm sure to find some inspiration in these pages on those days of need.
Thank you so much Diane for all the wonderful gifts! I am blessed.
I hope your day brings you blessings.
Thanks for visiting.
Hugs from Suz
