Most of you know about this blog's connection to Gardenmama and the Wellness Tree. Well, true to form, in honor of Kelly's Birthday, the beautiful Nicole did a perfectly wonderful thing and set up a swap. An Artful Stone Swap. I chose to paint on my stones.

Each one different, I wrapped them in pieces of an old vintage pattern and bound them with raffia that had belonged to Kelly. As I said a little prayer for each recipient, I closed my eyes (to remain impartial), put each tiny parcel in their envelope and sent them off. I don't know who will receive which stone, but I trust that it's message is particularly for the one who receives it :)

Lots of love


  1. Dear Kandyce,
    Your stones are so beautiful and I love that you shared your heart in creating them. It is so beautiful that you sent each one with a bit of Kelly's rafia as well as sending the perfect message with eyes closed to their new homes! I look forward to receiving yours just as much as I look forward to you receiving mine. I love you sweet friend xoxo

  2. Sweet Kandyce, Kelly is LOL that you sent your stones before I've even finished mine! She'd be so proud of you, but I'd get a reprimand for being behind :)

    I can't wait to receive my stone and promise mine will be on their way tomorrow; I've almost finished punching these darn 3-D paper classes! I love you, xoxo
