When I create the projects for Cardmaking Paradise, once they are made and online they go from my mind and I move on to the next project I am creating.
This week I had a lovely surprise - Marion sent her swap item to me, and included a lovely note made using the invitation/thank you letter project. It was really lovely to receive - it was a real thrill actually! Firstly that someone had taken the time to make something and write a lovely note to me, and secondly to see a project I had created being made and used and feeling the experience that receiving something like that gives.
I had some new members email me with their names and the country they live in to go on the members map, and as I looked at the map and saw how many members we have around the world, I realised how special you are. To take the time to make something for someone is such a kind, thoughtful thing to do. In our busy world it's all too easy to grab a card off a supermarket shelf - but you take the caring way and in doing so touch hearts.
I hope you know how much you are appreciated. It's very special to have this link with you through the internet, and lovely to be able to create together.
Have a special day.
Love and smiles,
