bountiful



The kindness that is shown here through this virtual world astounds me. I had posted a blog a week or so ago expressing my frustration in finding fall leaves for a project I am working on and Jessica was kind enough to offer to send some from her town of Boone, NC. Isn't that the most amazing offer of kindness? But the thing is she went beyond simply gathering some leaves from her yard, she went on a dedicated nature walked and looked for special things that she felt I would enjoy and be able to use.


I got a large box filled with all sorts of interesting wildflowers, dried pods, weeds and colorful leaves. I was so upset that I didn't take a picture before I pulled everything out because Jessica had wrapped separate little bundles in fall colored tissue paper - wish you could have seen it. I have no idea what they all are - but they are wonderful. I have been scanning away all day.

Jessica thank you so much for this bountiful package, it is appreciated more than you know.

Yay! I am thrilled to have contributed to your art of scanography......I am looking forward to what you are able to create from the package. Truly, it was my pleasure to send it your way.

What was your favorite piece? I'm curious :o) I have in my head what I thought would be your favorite, and I wonder if I'm right.....
