Google+ What I Made Today: Time for Someone Else

Time for Someone Else

In the blaze of life, such as it is, I had forgotten all about the blog give-away of which I was to be on the receiving end. I had forgotten until the mail came today. There amid the junk and the bills was an envelope of a different kind. Hand addressed with a happiness that is so rare these days. An envelope that resonated on a whole different frequency from the rest of the pile. I opened it up and this is what I saw:

I received a 350 Thank You card from the leslie n. crews collection. This is no ordinary card of gratitude. This card is created of handmade paper - 100% recycled paper! And not even ordinary trash paper (like the kind that came in my mail today), but these are made of old undergrad term papers. How cool is that? You can learn more about this inspired artist at the links above, but also at her Blog as well. Give her a visit and leave her some love, will you and help me make a little more time for someone else.

Ashe. Ashe.
