Like so many days, 
I wondered what I would do for today's blog?
As I drove in from day class I noticed a package at my front door?
I hadn't ordered anything had I?
My mind searched ... nah, Amazon doesn't know my name.
But I did indeed have a package with my name on it.
Doesn't matter how old you get, a package is exciting.
Then I recognized the handwriting ...




it was from artist & good friend Brandy. More special!
You see Brandy was recently blindsided with a serious diagnosis.




So to take time to send a gift to someone ...
doesn't that tell you how really special she is?
I hugged the package before opening. 
Brandy is a cat artist in the very best sense ...
and inside was her art with a note on the back.























And under the careful bubble wrap ...






a beautiful 3-D sculpted face of handmade paper
as cover of an exquisite journal.


















Can you tell how great this handmade paper is?
I am afraid it's beyond my photographic skills, but I try.




Inside cover & back is handmade thick black washi paper.








Inside ... pages & pages of beautiful white paper.
Starting a journal is daunting, so many blank pages.
Starting a beautiful, special journal is even more so.
But I plan to start on it, tonight!


















This is a postcard 
Brandy sent to me in 2015 ...
it is still here by my desk, I love it!
