I happened upon a contest of sorts and I won. I never win anything so imagine my delight when I won not one but 2 Pay it forwards in one week! Today I received my gift from Maggie B. at Normandy Life. Maggie writes a wonderful blog and takes amazing photographs.
Now I should have known when Jack came up with a candy in his mouth and offered me one that something was up! I am struggling around on the floor trying to make some sense and order out my guest room which I am turning into a studio/office. The bed will be a Murphy bed and when the bed is in the upright position, the underside will serve as my design wall. I am quite thrilled.
But anyway back to looking up at Jack (who is tall but very tall when you are on the floor) and the candy. Creme de caramel – mmmmmn. Maggie had told me she had sent the package but I thought it might take a little longer. I came downstairs for lunch and there on the coffee table was a pile of presents
and some candy….
I opened the card first. A lovely rendering of the Juliette Gordon Low birthplace. Juliette founded the Girl Scouts of America. I was a Girl Scout, Maggie. I loved earning those badges.
She wrote a wonderful note inside. Somehow I just knew her handwriting would be like this.
So now onto the presents.
In this package was this darling sign.
And in the other package was this little guy. He looks handmade and is just adorable.
Thank you Maggie B.
Now I will begin to plan my P.I.F. I am so glad that the rules allow 1 year to follow through. I won’t take a year but I need to come up with entry plan and some ideas for presents. And I need to get off the floor and have my design table in place!
