I am so blessed ~

Thank you all so, so much for your sweet well wishes!! I'm feeling a little more human right now but still dizzy and coughing a bit. I do think it was cleaning so hard :) I'll have to remember that next time!! I slept all day Sunday on and off, took Benedryl, loved me some Vicks Vaporub and just tried to get over this junk. Every time I'm sick I realize how very precious our health is and how we should be so thankful and take good care of ourselves. Thank you so much for your prayers and well wishes,
you all are such angels to me ~

Friday Karin of One Perfect Little Miracle came over for a day of creating, having lunch together and just relaxing. And we did just that! She came bearing gifts....not pictured are TWO swing arm rods to hang those gorgeous antique shears on either side of the guest bed. Also two beautiful, large pieces of beveled glass! And then the sweetest nest on a branch that she made:

And look at what she brought for our angel Clara!!! A little Scottie dog stuffie and a doll quilt made with her own two hands!!! Isn't it gorgeous?? Plus she even brought Noah a little Farkle game!

Oh Karin, you are so incredibly thoughtful sweet friend, thank you so much for each and every gift ~

We worked on altered composition notebooks while we chatted ~ it's relaxing making these and we enjoyed digging through my images and papers. I think Karin really enjoyed working with the matte gel medium too!

Karin's beautiful notebook ~ she said she still wants to add
a few finishing touches with trims she has at home.
It's so gorgeous to me!!

My French themed notebook ~

It truly was a wonderful day! We should all take the time to get together, spend time with precious friends and relax with one another. Time is flying by us so quickly, we'll blink and another year will have passed. Thank you so much Karin for the blessing of your friendship!!!

Now, I'm off to finish an article for Somerset before Jenny puts me in the dog house!!

Thank you again for your friendship, I love you all so much ~ Happy Monday!
xxoo, Dawn

Glad you are better....Your post title caught my attention...I am so blessed and some days forget that...

I have had so little time to do any blog reading and I have missed it...stop by my Christmas blog and leave a comment. The giveaway is a great Christmas CD to add to your collection.

You've heard it said that to be blessed, be a blessing to others? Well Dawn, that's YOU! You've been a huge blessing to me, and I know so many others, too.
Love ya!

Lori said...

the notebooks that you and Karin worked on are beautiful...i love the gifts she brought for you too, the little scottie dog for Miss Clara is so sweet!!!

I am so grateful to have you as a friend, Dawn. The day spent at your house was perfect, but I am sorry you became ill. Never clean again! ;)
I cannot wait to see what you do with the glass. My wheels are already turning and I am certain the inspiration came from being in your lovely studio!

I'm so glad to hear you're feeling better, Dawn. Your day with Karin looks like it was so much fun. Treasured times!

I'm glad you're back and feeling better because I miss you when you are gone. Your Friday sure looked fun. I absolutely love the soaps and thank you for carrying them in your shop.

Girl, don't you know windex is toxic?? Should only be handled by men. Glad you had a great day crafting with your GF. It doesn't get much better than having supplies spread out, snacks ready and a day spent with someone who 'gets it'
PS Thanks for the help when you were feeling so bad!

Dawn, Glad to hear that you are feeling a little better. Keep up with the Vicks and plenty of fluids. Also, don't over do it, take time to rest. That was so nice of your friend to make those adorable toy items for your granddaugther. Take care.

Hi Miz Dawn,
I'm glad you are feeling better. Colds are going around it seems. The journals are so pretty, it's nice to have friends to play with in the studio.
Take care of your self now

Shawna Bates said...

What a great friend to bring you such charming gifts!!!! You are so blessed!
Both of your journals came out great! I love the vintage look of both of them!
I hope you are feeling better. I noticed you said you have a cough and that you are loving the vicks, so maybe you are already doing this, but did you know if you rub a good layer of vicks on your feet and put socks on most times it will quiet your cough?
