Generosity

When I think of my co-workers, I think of them as friends.... but different than the "outside" of work friends.  Like my friendship with Dear Ziz is different than with the great gals I work with. I do not see them out of the job place. Last week a co-worker overheard a conversation I was having with another  gal about making the creative type dolls. We both want to try to create a masterpiece. A short time later, the other gal came over and told me she heard what we talked about and wanted to offer me a few books she had about doll making... did I want them. I said I would. Yesterday when I went in to work, Mara was in the break room and handed me a bag....
I was taken back! They are brand new and look like she never opened them. I offered to pay something but she refused. The retail price on all 4 books $24.99!!!! I will of course do something special for Mara as she is refusing $$$. My co-workers are great for sharing hugs when needed, and sharing the work load. This is a lovely surprise of someones kindness to me. Maybe I will make a creation for her!
I am off to work today.... it has been very busy, so I expect another constant day. I am so happy you stopped by and could share my time. Have a great day.

What a great gift she gave you.

My one co-worker and I are extremely close. In fact it is kinda strange because after a month people were asking us if we had worked together before. We chuckled and said no we just met and clicked. We have such a close friendship that we finish each other's sentences and do something before the other says to. (she is my team leader. LOL)

What an awesome gift! There is a great book at our phoenix public library called "500 Art Dolls" that is amazing to me. So many different dolls, and all beautifully crafted. I am looking forward to see what you sew up.

Another great source of inspiration on doll crafting is epb.com. It's Eleanor Peace Baileys website and her dolls are super-bright and really beautifully detailed.
