The Best of all Complaint Letters, an Award, and Mail!

This has to be one of the funniest and wittiest complaint letters I've ever seen. If you've already read it, pass it on. It is well worth the time. Check it out here. I so appreciate a good wit. Thanks to Sadie to letting us know about it. Some people just have a real gift for communication. LOL

I had another fun day in the mail. I've been trying to catch up on some JCS Christmas issues. I only have about five years worth, but I wanted 2005 to have at least the last six. I ordered it on E-Bay from a reputable seller and thought I'd been shafted. After touching base with her, she said she sent it media mail. From GA to NC it took 22 days to get here, but it's here. I also received the chart, By Her Hand, by La-D-Da as the giveaway prize from Sherry. It's awesome!
Thank you.

Beth has given me an award that I love. This one is a little different, but so nice. You know how this works, so I'm spreading the love by naming five others to award. So without further ado,

Kathy K - your generous and giving spirit is apparent to all
Deborah - with all of your own trials, you always have an encouraging word for everyone else
Rene - you really introduced me to a group and showed me what it could be like to have real internet friends
Donna - your Stitching For a Cure is pure love. We all thank you.
Meari - as busy as you are, you keep up with everyone, give help & tutorials, and post an awesome blog.

Aww, geez, Carolyn. You made me blush. Thank you.

But then you are a caring and generous soul as well. I guess the saying takes one to know one is true. :)

Nice pattern! I read the complaint letter too. Very funny.

Donna said...

Thank you so much for the award and the kind words. You are just so sweet.
Glad you got your stuff in from E-Bay. It is always a little unnerving when you order from there.
