This piece was inspired by the orange envelope that was included in my birthday gift from my friend, Mo and her grandson, Logan. We call him the Wee Man. I love that name. It sounds so Scottish.. which is exactly what he is. A Wee Scottish Man.
This page was done with all recycled and left pieces of paper. The half smile was on a Amazon gift envelope. The houses are Dylusion stamps that were my actual gift of Wee Man and Mo. This page is busier than some of my work. I really like that about it. It conveys my excitement about my totally unexpected gift from my Scottish friends.
I was having a very hard day when I found this package on my porch. It was a complete surprise and it brought tears to my eyes. This unexpected gift comforted me more than I can ever say. Our world is filled with wonderful caring people. I know many people say that the internet is keeping people from interacting with others. That may be true in many cases. I just know that I met a lady from Scotland through an art blog and twice now, she has come to my aid when I was having a hard time. The first time she talked to me online in the middle of the night when I was missing my mom and now she and her wee man cheer me with a very unexpected birthday gift. Maybe I'm the exception but I'm finding very personal relationships online.
