When I wrote about the package I received from Kerry I was so overwhelmed with things going on in my life that all I could do was love the beautiful Voodoo doll and the other amazing gifts included with it. The week that I received it my boss's mother was hospitalized and my co-worker was stricken with a kidney stone which she will finally be having removed tomorrow! I have been holding down the fort at work, worrying about my boss, her amazing mom, my co-worker and to make it ever worse, I found out (that same week) that my Dad has cancer again and he began chemotherapy last week. Needless to say I was a bit frazzled! After two long weeks I am happy to say that there is good news on most fronts. My boss's mom continues to improve, my co-worker will hopefully be back to work by Thursday and my dad is not suffering from any side effects from the treatments. Whew!
This weekend is the first time in over 2 weeks that I could sit and be hopeful. So, today I was finally able to relax a bit and I got to play with my pincushion swap goodies! When I did I realized that not only is the tote bag I received hand painted and embroidered, it was completely hand made by Kerry. So I had to post about it again!
As you can imagine, the package truly made my week and now that I am able to sit down and enjoy it I am just in awe of the beautiful work that went into my gift!! Kerry, thank you again. I really, truly appreciate the amount of hard work and skill that went into the gift you sent me!!
