Happy Mail

Oh how I love getting happy mail from my CTMH friends!
Look at the surprise I got last week.


Look at this lovely card and package, created by my
Kraft-y Heart team member Kim Hill.
I bet you just can't wait to see what's inside...
I know I couldn't!

This gorgeous scarf and bracelet came all the way from France!
I was touched that Kim even thought about me when she was there.
Gorgeous, right?
The bracelet went right on my wrist as it just so happened to match my outfit perfectly,
The bracelet came from the gift shop near Monet's garden.
Incidently, this package arrived the same day I got an e-mail from my supt. about the 
Lilly Grant application.
In Indiana, the Lilly Corporation offers teacher stipends to help them renew their passion for teaching.
I have, for years, been wanting to apply for one to cover the cost of a visit to 
Monet's Garden.
A sign?
Maybe, I am sharing here because the more people that I tell, the more accountable I will be to "just DO IT!"
I have two months to complete the grant.
I'll keep you posted.
If you want to see some lovely crafty goodness from my friend Kim,
just visit her blog Violets and Sunshine.
I am truly blessed to have this amazingly talented friend on my team!
