Sunshine and Warmth – A special dedication


This post is a dedication to a dear friend of mine – Trudy, who is sunshine and warmth wrapped in a person. Trudy and I have been co-workers and thanks to the water cooler talks, we got to know each other as friends. She would talk to me about her day so far, her Christmas decor ideas and her passion for art and that’s how we connected and became friends. Although she is decades senior to me in experience, she is so respectful and shares so much of her wisdom. I love listening to her stories and asking her questions 😀

I googled the meaning to her name and it means “spear of strength” or ” Universal strength” – and it couldn’t be truer. She has inspired me with her courage when she bravely fought cancer with a big cheerful smile. One could hardly tell she had a major surgery when you’d see her beaming smile. I am touched by her kindness and love. She is a big-time perfectionist when it comes to her work and things she is really passionate about. In her free time, Trudy makes 100’s of handmade greeting cards which are embroidered with love and perfection and each design and color combination she selects is worked upon with such intrinsic level of artistic touch. She sells these greeting card and uses all of the proceeds towards charity.

The biggest gift you can give someone is the gift of your time and the gift of your love.

I have been very fortunate to get first-hand craft lessons from her and witness her masterpieces in person. Sharing some of the super beautiful creations from the mastermind.

Thank you for showing me who real heroes are by demonstrating in practice – kindness, love, strength, compassion, hard work and creativity.

  2. This is so very beautiful! I used to make cards like this and Christmas decoration. Therefore I really understand the passion and joy for doing this. It is something that flows from the heart through the fingers. Trudy must have a really big heart!
