A few days ago I received a surprise gift in the post from Gina at http://daydreambeliever-gina.blogspot.co.uk . It came on just the right day and cheered me up tremendously, and I wanted to share it with you.
It was a 10" x 8" blank journal that Gina had made and painted, and what a journal. The painting on the front cover had the text 'Why would you cry ... when you could be singing with the Birds'. And this is the back cover:
Inside the pages were all 300 gsm watercolour paper, my favourite paper for watercolour because it takes any hammering from loads of water, and some of the pages had fold-out additional pages. I can't wait to get started in it.
There was also a lovely card and message, and I'm keeping the card tucked into the back fold.
This is such a lovely surprise gift, and I appreciate Gina's generous spirit and the lift it has given me at a difficult time. Thank you Gina.
