I'd just gotten in from grocery shopping (that's why I look so good), and guess what I found on my doorstep! This is the package I've been waiting for: the book that Marta made for me. It's a gift which combines all my loves--art, fiction, and hand-crafted...ness. The book is The Labyrinth House, one I gave a critique a few months (a year?) back, so it has sentimental value, not to mention I've been wanting to get my hands on some of Marta's art, and now I have it. Here's a link to her art page, Words Are Art. Go something. One of these days it will be worth ten times what you paid, mark my words.

My 10-year-old daughter loves to look at Marta's pictures, so she is thrilled with the book, even though the story is too old for her. I need to put it under glass so she won't smudge it with all her touching. I'll do that after I read it again.

Looking at my gift, I see inspiration, anticipation, friendship, and beauty. It touches me so deeply that I'm not sure I can even see all the ways it touches me.

I'll stop gushing now. I just wanted you to see it.

  1. That's totally awesome. And her stuff is awesome. Thanks for the link!

  2. Marta rawks out loud, and so do you. The stuff she does with her word art thing is really awesome. When I saw it I thought it was so clever, making art out of the words of her story. Fantastic imagination.

    Great shot of you, btw. :) I'm so glad to see it; I've missed your face.

  3. That's funny, coming from a person I've never laid eyes on. But thanks for the sweet comment. :)

  4. Thanks for all the you say and your unending support. I'm glad you like it!

  5. Look how pretty you are! You just keep getting better! :D

    Marta's book looks great! And so does your happiness at receiving it. :)

  6. I do! It inspires me. Thanks again. :)

  7. Oh, you hush. You've seen my eight-year-old picture. :P
