i'm in a funk today and this made my day

i've been a little stressed out about Tucker who gave me such a scare the other day at school (all is fine...)- but it really affected me and put me in that "worry" mode about him. For those of you worriers out there, you know how stressful those feelings are. also, the heater on tucker's new hot tub is not working and when i called the company they told me they went bankrupt! jeff's truck won't start and my less than 7 month old tv died! what's next? i'm also working on this valentine's charm swap, which, quite honestly, i will be glad when it is over! just way to many people to keep track of (50 participants). i can barely remember if i had lunch, let alone juggle all that info! can't wait to go to the post office with 50 priority mail bags! and i have to pre weigh them before i go to make sure they are all under a pound (because they paid the $4.60 under a pound priority rate). people sent different bags, boxes, etc. not much continuity. just hope i don't get that grouchy mail guy!
but anyway, i just opened my email and recieved the nicest note. i have to say, "it made my day".

Sent by JoleeJane on January 30, 2008: Hi Keica-I had to write to tell you how amazing your art is!I noticed you had a blog so I went and checked it out, you are truly gifted.I love working with some of the same materials you use- I just cant get enough sometimes;)anyway thought you should know you are admired from CaliforniaJane

huh? am i right? how nice was that?


  1. HI Kecia, you know I think it is just that stressful time of year! (My maiden name was Tucker!! LOL)
    Hope everything sorts itself out.
    hey here in Australia I love your work too!
    Take care.

  2. How nice to know that you have world wide admirers (well deserved). I love checking out your blog and seeing what you're up to.


  3. Your sounding a bit overwhelmed! I know how that goes. Just keep on keeping on.. you'll trudge you way through it.. I know you will.
    by the way, you are admired here in NY as well.. by NY vivian!
    hope things are brighter tomorrow!

  4. I'm such a fan of your blog! Your work is beautiful! Thanks for leaving a comment on mine.

    I LOVE those night lights! Must go check out your Etsy shop.


    That address should take you to the origami star tutorial.

  5. HI Kecia...

    Charlie is one of many raccoons that roam our property....and they are trouble makers !!!!
    You can click on those pictures and enlarge them and really see those pesky critters !!!

  6. Well, you are a rockstar girl! You should be told often how wonderful you are!

  7. Well Florida loves you too!!!! You are awesome in my book and you know I love your stuff...I wear my necklace often and get lots of compliments.

    Hope you don't stress too much but being a worrier myself I totally understand...I am always here to listen.

    xoxoxo - Cindy

  8. Just a suggestion, but you know, you don't have to take all the packages to the post office. Your carrier will pick up anything that's Priority Mail, and there's no limit to the amount of packages, just request pickup online at usps.com - and it's free. Hope this helps!

  9. Hi Kecia,
    Sorry you're stressed! I think we could all use a bit more sunshine this time of year. What a nice note you got tho...that sure must have made you feel better.
    Hey, did you ever get your crow box from TT? If not, I'd be happy to pick it up when I'm there on Feb.9th and I can mail it to you.
    Let me know...
    Sending you glittery hugs,

  10. I have fallen behind in reading the blog...all caught up now! YOu are admired in Texas too!!! Looks like you have quite a fan club here, so take heart and just take it a minute at a time. Put on some great music and just pretend there is nothing else going on in the world but you opening up an envelope at a time and making little groups of treasures to pack and mail...imagine all those smiling faces as they receive them and enjoy seeing all the creative things that the others made! You could even think of writing a book called SWAPS and take photos of some of the best ones!!! Cheering you on here in sunny Texas (if the sun is gonna shine...lets get to Spring!) -Sandra
