I believe this letter is for myself and all of you ladies out there creating
stunning treasures for all the world to enjoy. Sometimes you might feel discouraged, or think your work has gone unnoticed or unappreciated. I assure you, it does not. Our lives are so "Full" of "Things to do" that we sometimes forget to stop and say "Thank you" or "You have inspired me today". So I have decided to share my amazing "Thank You" note with all of you with the hopes of lifting your spirits and remember to "Never Give Up on your Dreams".....

Just a little note... her children sent me little package and it is was a tiny Teddy Bear, a Wool Chickadee, and a large Pink Checkered heart covered with Fairy Stickers, Tulle, and a bow for hanging. It is just adorable and I will cherish these items forever.

"Dear Catherine,

It is with great pleasure that we send this little package to you. You have lightened our load, reminded us to truly and honestly enjoy, brought delight with ear to ear grins. You graciously share photographs of your adorable home, fairy cottage and garden as well as yourself over the phone. When a package arrives, once opened, out floats love hearts ~ fairy dust ~ butterflies ~ sunbeams ~ moonshine ~ flower petals ~ star glint and ~ angels with wings all enveloping us with sweet pleasures!

We thank God that you are in this world and that He allows us to be a part of your life and you a part of ours. We thank you for sharing your talents, creativity, warmth, professionalism, and friendship with its many facets.
MARTHA STEWART... EAT your heart out~! lol

With our affection and love,
Lorna and family

This is a "WOW" moment, I must say!

Hi Cathy,
How wonderful to receive such a nice letter. It is very special when nice people take the time to write such a kind and encouraging note. I have 2 books full of notes and letters that keep me going in the rough spots when creating gets blocked. Reading them, restores and inspires.

You are very special and so deserve such a nice letter. Each and everyone word she wrote is so true. You are a talented and apecial lady.
And, today my package came and I love the little Italian plaques. I have plans to use them in my home in a unique way on an old hutch. Thank you so much for everything.

Have a wonderful evening and see you again soon.
Hugs and blessings,
Celestina Marie

I sure feel the way they do when I get a package! It was nice of them to remember you! I sent a hndmade card to an artist who makes cards and she was just thrilled. It's the little things, saying thank you, extra time in wrapping a new treasure on it's way to a new home, small suprises that are wat it's all about!
hugs, Lisa
