Something gorgeous that appeared in the mail

Just under a month ago, Cat Valente – a good friend who I never get to see because she lives on the other side of the world – mentioned that her Omikuji Project was on the verge of ending if it didn’t reach a certain number of subscribers.  I’m not going to paraphrase the rest of the post, you can click on the link and read it yourself, but after reading Cat’s entry I immediately decided to sign up to the Project.

Today I got this gorgeous letter in the mail.  My very own short story – well mine and a hundred or so other people – sealed with the Valente mark of approval.

Awesome is a much used word these days – but it definitely applies in this instance.

More information on the Omikuji Project can be found here.

    ooooh I signed up to that just recently because Alisa told me to! Well no, she mentioned it and I googled it (while recording GS…) and *then* I signed up. Anyway, I think I signed up too recently to get this month’s offering, so I have to wait another four weeks. SAD.

    When it does finally come in the mail, you will fall immediately in love with. The envelopes are pretty as well.

      Looks like I didn’t make it for that round, cos I have had nothing in the mail. Next month! Can’t wait! Am loving the collection from the first two years.
