Just what I needed!

There are weeks and then there are weeks!!!! I’ve just had one of ‘those’ weeks. Crazy busy it has been frantic at work with the boss away and everyone deciding they want things done yesterday please! It’s been a steep learning curve having the responsibility of running a design studio on your own, but I have survived.

On another sad note our dog of 17 years is nearing the end of his life, his hips have deteriorated rapidly over the past six months and he is having trouble toileting etc.and is obviously suffering. We have decided it is time for him to be put to sleep. A sad day is looming.

I don’t like to dwell on the hard things that happen but they do make up the patchwork of our lives and of course to balance the sad there is the happy, and that’s just what came in the mail. Three very beautiful hand made postcards from Beth Nicholls of The Great Big Stitched Postcard.

They are sitting very prettily next to my computer reminding me that there is beauty and laughter and graciousness and love and that these things live all around us and we can always look for them and embrace them anytime we want to. And how easy it is to lift the burden of someone’s day with a simple gift.

So thank-you Beth you brightened my day!

So pleased they arrived safely and brightened up your day a little!
Sorry to hear about your dog. It can be heartbreaking when long-loved pets have to leave us.
