"What a Treat...!"

Coming all the way from Dubai...to the Valley of the Sun...
...my name "Peg" in Arabic...
along with some very humbling descriptors
written around it which translated read:
"artist, sensitive, humane, beautiful, creative."
This stunningly lovely and generous gift of calligraphic art
was beautifully written by
Fadwa....in Dubai.
Click here to visit her site...it is an inspirational delight!
I love her unique journal pages...and the way she
alters books to write stories.
She also designs gorgeous beaded jewelry...
and you can check that out here. :)
Thanks, again, Fadwa...I am on "cloud nine"!

Blogging is a unique way to share one's little corner of the world.
I think its richness and diversity makes each of us
better citizens of this planet.
I cherish the openness of hearts in our artistic blogging world.
There is a lot of beauty to see, and inspiration to find,
and fabulous people to meet
in this world...
and the best thing about it is that they are all simply
one little mouse click away!

"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful,
for beauty is God's handwriting."
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Love your Arabic name and she sure summed you up with the character assessment words.
I've been over to Fadwa's inspirational blog and said yes please and also listed all that is in my handbag this morning. Everything ESSENTIAL!!!!

I went to her inspirational blog too and was delighted to see that she also likes to cut and paste. I wasn't tempted to show anyone the contents of my purse, however. I need to lighten that load for the sake of my back...

Your calligraphic name is elegant and wonderful, and another bit of evidence of the kindness of people around the globe.
