Bloggers Are Giving, Caring People!

Hello folks!  I had to take a moment to do up a little blog post about something that happend recently.  Awhile back I joined a Gothic Ornament Swap over on Cindy Owen's Blog.  I made 6 ornaments and sent them to Cindy.  In turn, she sent 6 ornaments made by the other participants back to me and I love each and every one of them!  Having said that, there was one little ornament that I was hoping I would receive.  Cindy put up a parade of the ornaments on her blog and when I saw this ornament I had to have it!  Alas, I didn't receive the ornament.  :(

So, rather than just I contacted the artist who made her (Matty Adragna) through HER ETSY SHOP and asked if she'd be willing to make me another one and I'd purchase it from her.  Much to my surprise, she replied and said she would send one to me as a gift!!!!  I couldn't believe it! 

Well...... Today the ornament arrived!  It is almost identical to the original one and I couldn't be happier!  I LOVE this ornament! 

Here's a picture of the original one:

And here's what I recieved today:

Squeal!  I think I actually like this more than the original!  Thank you so much, Matty!! 

So, when y'all get a chance, head over to Matty's Blog and Etsy Store.  She's a sweetheart.

I'm putting the finishing touches on the little thank you gift I'm preparing for Matty and will get it in the mail to Matty in the next couple of days.  Just goes to show you how giving and sweet bloggers really are!
