Ooooooh! Presents!

I received the loveliest package in the mail last week, and have just now gotten a chance to show it to you. It was from the oh so brilliant artist Patricia van Essche from PVE design.

Everything about the package was perfect, down to the back of the envelope, which was printed with a repeat of her twin bird logo.

I simply fell in love with the card she sent with an illustration of my dog Cooper. (You may notice a small box of chocolates to the left. Patricia has an excellent memory! There is this story of a dog who ended up in the vet's office the day after Christmas last year after gorging on a box of chocolates.)

Isn't this the most beautiful and kind gift?!? Thank you so much Patricia. It has a place of honor in my office, and will for years to come.

If you have not already, I hope you will visit Patricia's blog here. There is always a wonderful illustration that will make your day.

I love Patricia! What a sweet and thoughtful gift.

She is greatest. She was kind enough to swap a custom illustration for me with the return of sweet treats send her way.

Amazing woman.
