Judi"s Gifts














I have had these for some time but had issues with blogger uploading the pictures so now I had better get them posted.

I received this box in the mail. my friend Judi Redhead sent them as a thank you gift for the 1967 copy of the Wizard of Oz that I sent her. On the box she took some art I had posted and put my face on it. I was really tickled at that idea.

































She sent this lovely card and decorated envelope.















Here is a piece of cake, glitter style.
















She also included this leather bound journal. It is really nice, it has gold edged pages and the spine makes it look like an old book. I think I will decorate the cover with something brighter that the brown marbling.














Here are the first few pages that she decorated to get the book started. As you can see she is one special person. One that I am really looking forward to meeting next April in Sedona.

What a wonderful surprise you received! That Judi is AMAZING the does everything!! I saw your post on V's board and I REALLY want to send you something for a book page. I know how horrid I am on saying yes and taking LONG but I am truly trying to get better at that. So hopefully soon I'll have something in the mail to you! That's such a great idea!
Sounds like you're keeping busy, I love that you set up and made breakfast for your friends, how fun and spontaneous! love that!!
I can't wait to meet you!
