Merry Christmas – I have a gift for you

Wishing you all a very joyous and happy Christmas and I have a little Christmas gift for you all.  My usual terms apply, you can use this for your own personal use, but you cannot distribute the file to others.  This freebie will remain here for the twelve days of Christmas, after which it will disappear!  To grab the printable file, right click (CMD Click on a Mac) and choose ‘save target’ (Save image as on a Mac).


OK, ‘fess up, who’s been sending pressies?

At the risk of repeating myself, I need to say thank you again.  I could easily write pages of thanks to all of you who have left me such lovely comments or sent me supportive emails.  I could say some very special thank you’s to the ladies of the Graphicus Guild online group who have kept me sane this week with their good cheer, good humour and links to very funny YouTube videos.  I could, and will, say thank you to my dearest hubby who just gets more special to me each day (and I’m not talking ‘goes to school on the short bus’ special, but the ‘together we’re strong’ kind of special).

But no, I have two very special thank you messages to add to the list.  Firstly to a very, very sweet customer, Anne who surprised us with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers which were delivered on Saturday.  Anne, I don’t know if you got my email, but I can honestly say I was really touched and we both really appreciated something bright and cheerful turning up out of the blue like that.

And secondly, I have to say thank you to an anonymous mysterious benefactor for another surprise package – this time a festive hamper from Interflora.  Again, the infusion of joy from an unexpected gift was such a treat, but the message card had no name on it, so I don’t know who to thank!  Please let me know if it was you as the Beeblekittens have a message for you.

These two gifts have brought light into a difficult week and taught me first hand how it feels to be on the receiving end of a random act of kindness and that is why I want to say a big, genuine, heartfelt thank you.
