You Rock Girl! (Copyright Hanna Andersson)

You rock, did you know that? If I rock, you rock – and in that case we all rock big time! Why? Because we are awesome girls and woman who empower each other. The benefits of having a blog to me, has been that I’ve found support, wisdom, inspiration, encouragement and people who will give me virtual hugs when I need them.

This week I got the best package ever in the mail. I had to share the photos with you of all the little gifts sent by my Art Journal Guru Teacher Friend and Crusade Leader Michelle Ward. The reason I want to share is not to make you envious (even though that might happen anyway) but to show you how generous Michelle is! Thoughtful, generous and a person to look up to and take after! I was the Top Hat Pick in the Street Team for February (crusade #28). As it turns out, I won again in April (#30) as Michelle decided to stop sending out these goodies and let everyone be Top Picks. We are all Crusade 30 Winners now!

This is what I unpacked at a caf in town this week, smiling big and getting curious looks from people around me:

Winner Gift Bag
You Rock is what it says on the gift bag… A bag full of goodies is a mixed media girl’s wet dream.

Cool stuff wrapped beautifully! This is the best package I’ve ever received!

Beautiful envelope decoration made by Michelle Ward. This H will need to be re-used somewhere. I’m thinking an Art Journal not yet made.

Thank you Michelle, YOU rock! And thanks for all team members who played along too. YOU rock. And if you didn’t play you still ROCK, because you’re here. XOXO
