Once in a long while, if you are fortunate enough, someone comes along and enters your life and blesses you with their friendship, support and generosity. My post today
is about someone who has done just that and I feel so blessed that
he came into my life.
My special friend is CURT. You may know him from his blog, http://curtsplayhouse.blogspot.com/
and he has created something very special and dear to my heart.
If you have ever shared your life with a fur-friend, then you may also know about
the heartache that you endure when you have to say good bye to them. My dear little Gadget left me in July and Curt was of great support to me through this time and he knew in his own heart from personal experience, just how much my heart
Well, yesterday I received a parcel from Curt and this is what was in there.
First there was a beautiful card with some very touching words written inside. The background is fabric that Curt stitched onto the black c/s.
Then, a most unexpected surprise ... a beautiful handcrafted book. The book closure
is a genuine dog collar and the dog tag reads "GADGET".
There are pockets, tags, embellishments, hand stamped images, journalling pockets, sentiments and sayings combined with adorable puppy printed papers.
And look at this adorable puppy made from punched shapes.
One of my favourite tags is this one that Curt hung dog bones from string
that dangle when opened.
There's even a 3D fire hydrant complete with the chains.
No words can express how Curt has made me feel by creating this wonderful book so that I may use it as a tribute to my sweet little Gadget.
"Life isn't measured by the breaths we take but rather by the moments
that take our breath away".
This is one of those moments. Thank you Curt from the bottom of my heart for this treasured gift and the gift of your friendship.
