Spoon full of Sugar

Wonderful news! My friend Linda is home from the hospital! She will be home for a few weeks and hopes to spend time on her art work, so I made her this get well basket filled with shiny new supplies. A hardback sketchbook, watercolor pencils papers, and pretty collage trimmings. Linda is a dear friend who is always there for everyone in her life, quietly so of those angels in your life. So I'm thrilled she will take a little time for herself and her art.

(ah... but what is in the box you ask?)
Its a spoon full of sugar made by the lovely The Midnight Orange
such a sweet get well gift don't you think? She makes them in all colors too!

What a nice thing to do for your friend-I hope that she is feeling better and will enjoy creating with the basket of goodies you have so sweetly gathered for her.
Giving is so rewarding and good for the soul.

thank you :) I have to admit I'm not the best at making gift baskets look just right. I tend to over stuff them and not leave room for the pretty papers and fluff (and presentation counts!)

I hope I made up for it by decorating the outside with ribbons and butterflies :)

And yes its so rewarding, especially seeing your friend smile when they have been feeling ill.

Your comments are so sweet, if only you knew my friend you would know there is no basket big enough to fill with what she deserves!

I was so happy after visiting with her, she is recovering quite well, and wouldn't you know she had a gift for me *sigh* a lovely book called Soul Collage"
