~Once Upon A Time Thursday~

Good morning my amazing friends!
I have been so blessed the last couple of years beginning with
the Fiskateers and the wonderful group that welcomed me in
on to today with so many people who have blessed my life,
from the daily notes, to the amazing friendships I have gained.
I am one lucky girl for sure...
and yesterday was no different, in fact it was EXTRA special
and I wanted to share with y'all right away!

Once upon a time there was a pink haired crafty chick who wished
upon a star for a Cricut, but never expected to have one for herself.
After some good deeds around Christmas, and some amazing people
who took the time to find out who this pink haired chick really was
and loved her despite her faults and quirkiness, one special friend at CHA
went to Cricut and explained the pink haired girl's story to them.
Cricut was so kind and sweet they decided to send the pink haired crafter
a special gift. For weeks this crafter stalked the country road she lived on looking for
a Fed Ex truck, then one day, one rainy dismal day she heard a knock on the door!
So she grabbed her camera (so her crafty friends would share her moment!)
and snapped a picture of the Fed Ex truck as it left, she went outside to find....
A beautiful BOX! with the words CRICUT on the side,
When she tore into the box, it was her surprise!
A Cricut Expression and 2 brand new cartridges to boot!
Then she cried...tears of joy.
It was a very good day in the pink haired crafters house!

I have to tell you, those of you who think those good deeds go unnoticed,
those of you who keep kindness in your heart and keep giving even
though you get hurt all the time and people push you hard.
KEEP THAT KINDNESS, and keep the faith because one day
something big will happen to you and you will be so blown away
by the amount of kindness that is out there.

Thanks to Vennita who arranged for this to happen,
for believing in me, and taking the time to know me personally
and know that I really am a kind person, always standing up for me.
Thanks Cricut for listening to V tell my story and sharing the love!

Thanks to my blog followers who share my life,
who see the good the bad and the ugly,
whom I know will be excited for me and share in my joy today!

Oh it is a sappy blog day I know...but it's a CRICUT!!!!!! hehehe
(Don't forget tomorrow's blog hop for Helmar!!)

~Thanks for stopping by~
~Thank you for sharing in my excitement today!~
~Have a beautiful day~

Oh my gosh!!! "sniff, sniff" Pinky I am so happy for you!!! How exciting!! And what a touching story! And it goes to show that it is true....when you bless matter how small you think the blessing will always come back to you multiplied!! Someday the rest of the world will catch on to that....I hope. You amy not realize it but you touch a lot of lives every single day. I don't "know" you on a persoanl level, but I do know there is more to you than your pink hair. And anyone who doesn't take the time to look deep inside and see that beauty is a fool and are only cheating themselves. I love your blog, your stories, your scraps, your projects.....and your pink hair :) You have inspired me in ways you will never know and I thank you for that.

doverdi said...

Congrats Pinky! Way to go Provo Craft. What an awesome experience. I just recently purchased a used Cricut ordered some cartridges on line to go along with it. (the price of cartridges here in Canada is insane...$90 each) Due to renovating I haven't had the time to play with it but I know I'll have some fun once I get started. Enjoy & I can't wait to see what you do with it.

Lynne said...

Pinky, that is so wonderful!! I am very happy that someone took notice & cared enough about you to do this!!! Thanks to Provo Craft too!!

I want to thank you for sharing your story...I needed to hear that 'I should keep that kindness, because someday something big will happen'!!! I had totally forgotten about that...won't go into story. But I let my heart forget. You've touched me more than you'll ever know!!! Thank you again!!!!

Sophia said...

You are on lucky girl, enjoy your new toy, so happy for you GF!

Jessica said...

You are indeed a lucky girl! I felt the same way when my boyfriend said he was going to buy me a Cricut for my birthday!!! I had never even asked! He saw the comercial, and knew I'd love it. So I know how you feel about stalking the delivery guys, etc. I'm happy for you! I know you will enjoy your big bug!
And you are so right about being nice and kind to others. It's the right thing to do. Thanks for sharing your fun story! Hugs,
