Oh, what a wonderful surprise, from Dear Lisa in Hurst Texas, but I don't know her blogspot. I know 3 Lisa's and I can't tell which ones from Texas. I am just so grateful and sooooooo excited. I opened it in the post office parking lot. It was wrapped in a Butterick Pattern, (how cleaver). Oh my goodness, it's "The Cokesbury Hymnal", copyright 1923. How did Lisa know I loved to sing? Actually, I have made so many comments about the darling artistic things people make with music and I've ask, where did you get the music. That's got to be what this surprise is all about. Lisa just up and sent me a book that I can keep and copy. Thank you so much, I know what I want to make first, I'll post it when it's done. Lisa, your the best!

This means a great deal to me. Friends forever! Big Hugs!


  1. How sweet of her! Yes let's get together. You tell me when. Mimi

  2. thats neat of lisa in sing your heart out...make one will hear you!!!
    I will mail your Life out today, hopefully tomorrow you will get it and then you can sing AND wont believe how it will trigger your creativity...your going to have a fun January!

  3. I think blog friends are so generous! What a wonderful gift!'s good to run in to you on the internet. I talked to Gerald about our chance meeting and he said that he has found Brent on Facebook.
    Hope you have a great new year!

  4. Surprise! It's me! You left a comment awhile back about not being able to find sheet music & I asked for your address. I had a bunch so I wanted to send you some. It took forever to arrive, glad you finally got it. Enjoy. Lisa

  5. Oh how sweet of Lisa to do. I'm so amazed by all the generous spirits there are in the world.

  6. Lisa is a sweetie and unexpected gifts are the best! What great music sheets to create with. Have fun. Look forward to seeing what you will do with it. Blessings, Tammy

  7. Music...A lovely surprise for a lovely soul! And a little girl LOVED a "surprise" gift from your heart as well, Cindy!! The castle pillow...who wouldn't...especially a child with princess inclinations...? Inside the gossamer wrap tied with a bejeweled crown necklace was a world she loves to daydream about complete with horses and castle. I am hoping this will be a treasure from her childhood that will last into adulthood, but already it goes with her to all her cozy spots in her house. Just know, your handiwork will be well loved and the source of many fairy tales. Thank you for making her Christmas extra special this year...much love, Rose

  8. thanks for being my friend, and hope we will be for another year!
    I wish you and yours the very best for 2010, and may all your dreams come true!

    Here is my email:
    It may be morning when I mail it I am so sorry for the delay. and this weather doesnt help! yes, it took me 3 times longer to get home last night.

  10. How wonderful! I was raised a few miles from Hurst Texas. I was raised in Bedford, Texas. Small world! That was very sweet of that Lisa!
    I wish you a Happy New Year!

  11. How sweet. With so many things that can be made from sheets of music, I can't wait to see what you do with it. Also, thanks for stopping by today.

  12. Thanks for your nice comment on my blog! I am excited to see what you make too!

  13. There's no sweeter gift than an unexpected one.

    I'm sure this will inspire your creative juices for the new year.
