Visiting the Rock Fairy’s supplier. How blessed am I that rock picking takes place at the beach ?

Our beautiful Rose of Sharon plant is in full bloom.

Microfleur Max Press

My sweet hubby ordered me this very cool microwave flower press that my friend Colleen introduced me to…

so now I can preserve some of the beauty and add it into my art work !

The orders for 37 Days Rock My World rocks have been amazingly abundant ! It is a little overwhelming, in fact. I never thought it would get quite this big ! I have received orders for about 100 bags of rocks so far !

But I have a great team of people that are going to help me reach my goal to help out with the financial challenges that John and Patti are facing. My husband David is just amazing and is working as hard as I am to get this heart work done ! Thank you so much, my Hunny Bunny. 

If you would like to help Patti and John as well, there is now a site organized their friends by Amy McCracken and Colleen Wainwright where you can make a financial contribution and/or leave a note of love and support.

I hope your week is full of joy, to give and to receive.

Big Love, Beautiful Ones !

Love SEEING you at your "work site" the beach!
Love that we have cats from the same family as mine could be yours twin!
Love that you do good works for others and that so many other good people respond to help.

Many, many blessings on you!!!

Two of Patti's books are within reach from where I sit. I'm pouring love in their direction -- and yours, too, for you have an enormous, compassionate heart and the love you give is returned.

Meri said...

Actually -- make that three, though the third is only in reach if I roll my chair backwards several feet. The only one I don't have is the newest one, so I'll have to remedy that.

what a huge heart you have...what a wonderful friend.

all my thoughts...light and love coming Patti's way.

You once said your work "is to spread love", I know that can be heavy work for the more you spread the more comes back to be given out again as with your rock orders, so I'm happy to note that 'your love' is there for back-up! :~)

Thanks for the lovely comment on my post. x

A little birdie told me to give someone an award today. I award you with spreading the most wonderful joy!

beth said...

Those rocks have the ability to circle the globe and spread the contagion of joy. Kudos to you.

Giving! That is what life is about. It gives us a raison d'etre - a reason for living. The reason for living is to give and by giving we are given "ten fold" it has been said. So giving good things brings us more good things. I see so much abundance in your life precious one. It is evidence of your giving. I am so proud to be your mom. Blessins and love to Patti and her loved ones. Her hubby seems like a giver and although I would choose an easier way to receive, I feel that all this kindness will help him heal and come through this. I add big prayers.
Love you Kimmy.
