I've "met" some pretty amazing people over the last 5 years while blogging. Again and again, I'm inspired by the creativity and generosity of others. I recently received the most thoughtful gift in the mail designed by Jaen (aka Lady North).
Jaen writes, "So just what the heck am I sending you? It's an ATC/Business/Credit Card/Post-it Note holder contraption." She had seen a YouTube video on making these and had a Eureka moment.
I bet you can't wait to scroll down to get a closer look.
Each pocket is made from a Starbucks coffee sleeve. Now how clever is that? The detail that grabs my heart are the words, "True North." Lady North thought it would be fitting to send to me, my very own True North Coffee sleeve mini booklet. For those of you who are just now stumbling onto this blog post, my creative business is called True North Arts.
She tucked in some gorgeous ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) that she designed. There were some blanks cards as well made from some locally made Opus 140 lb pressed water colour paper. She also sent some extra coffee sleeves. I love designing small collages and can't wait to play this afternoon to create a special thank you package.
I loved all of the details including the red polka dot paper clips. Quick Fact: I wear polka dots at least three times/week. I adore them!
Tucked in the package was information about where Lady North hails and an invitation to visit her in the beautiful Cowichan Region in British Columbia. Fernando and I have it on our list of must-see places.
In the meantime, I am deeply touched by Jaen's thoughtfulness, creativity, enthusiasm, and generosity. She is among the many people who I've had the pleasure of connecting with online and who make this journey of life a daring and fabulous adventure.
