Should you need any proof that the internet is the most amazing way to connect people then this is your story. A few weeks ago, I posted about my favorite style magazine from France called Marie Claire Idées. A few days later I received an email from a woman named Juli in NYC who was wondering what to do with her back issues of Marie Claire, and had seen my post on some google search she'd done. She asked if I would like them, and of course I said YES! I paid her for shipping and received this package on Saturday:
Juli's thoughtful package presentation!
How darling of her to tie them with ric rac, which I thriftily stowed in my "Things that Bedazzle" drawer. It could not have found a better home on a better day! I had done my motherly duty by watching my daughter's soccer game in the freezing rain and was ready to curl up on my bed for some creative inspiration. So I spread the magazines around me, grabbed my sketchbook and spent a few hours coming up with new projects to start, and new blog entries to write. I'm so happy that Juli put forth the effort to ship them to me and I am quite thankful and much inspired. Don't be afraid to reach out to someone! It's the extra effort that counts in this world...
Back issues of Marie Claire Idées sent to me from a reader.
