Lucky me and a visit from a dragon

Well yesterday it definitely felt like my birthday as I had another parcel arrive. This time it was from my sister Ady. OMG it was full of Tim Holtz products and a lovely gift voucher! The gift voucher above, is beautiful as it is handmade. It is from Art From the Heart a shop that sells the most gorgeous craft things. It is run by the very talented Dyan Reaveley who is very good at art journaling. I've only just discovered her and am intrigued by what she does.

THANK YOU so much Ady for such a wonderful treat!

Here are the gifts she sent me ... distress inks, distress stickles and Glossy Accents - I can't wait to play with them. I was so excited when I opened the parcel. Aaaargh I forgot to take a photo of the Salvage Stickers - they are so cool, I have ideas for them already! I'm so lucky :)

And then, later in the day I had a visitor. My friend Bert bought his very handsome Bearded Dragon (called Junior) to see me - isn't he lovely? I'd love a little dragon, so sweet. Don't think Miaowski would be impressed. She didn't show any interest in our visitor but then she was nuzzling up to the radiator at the time.
So far this week has been lovely and it's only Tuesday! Hurray, things are looking good. I'm in such a good mood. It's another time for a lovely quote and here is my most favourite by Woodrow Wilson ...

We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days till they bring them to the sunshine and light, which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true.

Amen to that!
