In The Mail

It’s been a wonderful week so far regarding mail here at Happy Acres. A couple of the goodies include this book.

Writing Routes

What is neat about this book is that on page 180 in the Managing Transitions chapter is my article “Using dialogue to move on with my life.” I wrote (and rewrote) this article many times since my divorce in 1994. For those not familiar with dialogue, it is a journal writing technique where you write both sides of the imaginary conversation. The goal of this journal tool is to help find closure with a situation, usually someone who is not available or not willing to communicate. It is one of my favorite techniques for finding closure and helped me to close the chapter on that part of my life. I’ve not read the book yet, but look forward to sitting down and seeing what all the other writers have to say.

I had ordered just yesterday these cute bags for Christmas presents from Kathy Sands, fiber artist and teacher and owner of My Wildflower Designs, who I met online through my blog.

Too Cute!

Also, way too cute.

They are so much cuter than the pictures on her etsy site. Anyway, one will be a present; the other I’ll keep. I’ll carry mine in my purse for my homemade lip balm and lotion. Now to decide which is mine!

Check out Kathy’s blog and her Etsy store. If you are looking for a handmade present, give her store a look. Kathy lives about an hour from here, so I’m buying local and handmade. Yeah!

I received this bag in the mail from the Green Bag Lady. My bag is #12561.

Tomorrow, I’ll show and tell about some neat stuff I found in my craftroom/cave as I continue to organize this mess! See you then.
