Along the Way


One of the best things about working in the Scrapbooking Industry is the people you meet along the way. Besides the co-workers that become like family, there is also the customers that become friends.
One of those customers/friends stopped by the LSS (local scrapbook store)this week while I was working and said she had something for me. She handed me the package to open, and inside was the most beautiful quilt I had ever seen.
Amazing story right?
No, the amazing part is that her husband hand made the quilt for me.
She helps him pick out the colors, and put them all together, and he does the quilting while she's scrapbooking.
I have the quilt laying over the sofa in our family room, and everytime I walk into the room, I still can't help but to stop and look at it. It's beautiful!
I know the quilt took him months to make, and that just blows me away that someone would do that for me.
I've tried 3 times today to make a Thank You card for them, but just can't make it perfect like I want. Thank you just doesn't seem like enough anyway.
I really have met some wonderful people along the way.
