A few months ago I was completely flabbergasted by a surprise package from a complete stranger. The package contained a Gocco machine with a surplus of screens, ink and bulbs FOR ME! Justin explained that my mysterious benefactor was a nice guy he met at a dinner party who used to enjoy using a Gocco but no longer needed his. This person (Andrew) was willing to send me all his extra supplies because Justin told him I was sad that the manufacturer had closed.
I was literally speechless that someone I'd never met would share all this with me and ask nothing in return. He gave me such a good feeling that I wanted to send him a gift box full of happiness in return but I had no idea what he would like and I felt like nothing was good enough to show my gratitude.
I finally have overcome my favor-repayment anxiety and am sending him a box of prints and stationery plus the Gocco box journal I made especially for him. I also decided to "pay it forward" and do something generous for someone else. My decision to make a Gulf wildlife fundraiser card set came because I wanted to use the supplies he gave me for something special.
So, thanks Andrew for the overwhelmingly great gift! I hope he forgives me for taking so long to thank him properly.
