Thank you, Nancy!

This week has been a whirlwind to say the least. It started off well enough, but by Wednesday it had dramatically veered off-course and by Thursday, things couldn't get much worse. That's when I noticed that I'd received an unexpected package in the mail from a dear friend and very talented collage artist, Nancy Lefko. In that package I found an amazing little collage that I had been admiring in her etsy shop. It says "Bee Happy" and was exactly what I needed to lift my spirits from an otherwise very depressing week. I plan to pick up a frame tomorrow (with my 50% off president's day Michaels coupon) for this lovely little piece so I can find it a permanent home on my studio wall.



Be sure to first Nancy's etsy shop and blog to see some of her wonderful collage work.

Thank you, Nancy for your kindness and generosity! I'll treasure this collage for many years to come!

The unexpected thoughts from a friend, those are the best. It is a beautiful collage and a beautiful statement. Alisa~ I do hope things are better for you I am a bit concerned hearing the tone in the post. I hope all is well, but know I am sending positive thoughts to you!

It's one of life's pleasures when a friend knows "just what we need" even when we haven't said so. Nancy's work is beautiful and it was "just" what you needed at the right time. May things look brighter for you as you start a new week.
