What A Kind Gift From a Special, Kind Person

I was fortunate enough to take the Kim Fields class last October. It was a wonderful class, and Kim is an exceptional artist and instructor! The class was filled with great information, a lot of friends, new aquaintances and a lot of fun!

The first part of November the mailman, whom I stalk on a regular basis, brought me a very special box...that contained a lot of very special surprises...from an especially kind person. In the class I also had the privledge of meeting Mary Beth, who said she was familiar with my electroformed beads. The box was from Mary Beth and was filled, and I do mean FILLED, with Mother Natures finest offerings for anybody who enjoys electroforming. (Above is just half of the contents, as every folded paper contains another sheet of harvest) She enclosed a note explaining that she had spent "some time" in the woods collecting leaves, plants, flowers, anything she thought might be interesting in copper. Everything was pressed and packaged with care.

Mary Beth, I don't know if you ever read my blog, but you have no idea how much that meant to me. It was during a period when I was pretty much under the weather, and not able to work for a few weeks. Now that I am back to electroforming, I broke out the "box of treasures" and think I will finally be putting them to use.
Words cannot express how much I appreciate your kind gesture!! Thank you again!
