I know, I know. I'm supposed to be posting about my trip to Texas BUT...I just had to share this with all of you because I am sooo excited, sniffly, full of joy tears, and so honored that such a sweet person who I have JUST met would do something so wonderful for me! This is totally unimaginable and such a sweet surprise.
Okay are you ready? I'm sure you scrolled down already and peeked, shame on you but isn't this like THE coolest thing?
Okay, let me explain...
See that sweet girl with the beautiful smile on the right? I would like to introduce you to my friend Zandra (who is indeed joyfully out of control ;) And of course...the doll on the left is THE one and only Tim Holtz, (Ranger) and coolest artist of all time in MY book.
Well Zandra attended Creative Escape (an art event) in Arizona last weekend. Prior to her leaving, the two of us were just emailing back and forth, wishing each other safe travels and I asked her for a small favor. (however I had NO idea what she would do instead) You see, Zandra posted photos of her Creative Escape weekend of last year and I noticed a photo taken of her and Tim. I told her how lucky she was and my favor from her this year was....I just wanted her to touch him for me. Yep, just touch Tim for me...sounds crazy, I know ;) I think of him like a rock star...just to be in the same room as him, I know I would faint, or make a fool of myself, or just stutter in his face. So, just a touch would be nice.
Zandra comes back and posts about her lovely artsy weekend yesterday and when I read her post last night...I totally FREAKED out, (and that is putting it mildly!) Can you believe that she actually thought of me enough to make a sign, take a picture with Tim, and have him autograph it for me? So are you getting the whole picture? This means he knows I exist, he's pointing to MY name, he took a picture just for ME, AND he signed my little sign? I will SO be stalking that little mailman EVERY day...!!!
I'm all bruised up from falling on the floor, over and over again every time I look at this photo :) I've never been happier to get a bruise I tell ya!!!!
How could I possibly thank Zandra enough for this sweet surprise? Never in a million dreams would I have expected such an awesome gesture from a friend of whom I've only known for about 2 months.
Sometimes, just one simple gesture, one thought, or one sweet word is totally priceless.
If you get a chance, stop by Zandra's blog...it's a wonderful and creative place to visit!!!!
I'll try and stay on track in posting about my Texas weekend, Tidbits & Tassels!!! I'll try...
