Secret Craft Admirer

I am not sure what I have going on at work but it has something to do with crafts and making me curious as a cat.

Last month I walked up to my desk and noticed an interoffice envelope in the chair. I was excited because this would mark my first official piece of mail at work. I opened it up and there was a craft book inside. And not your average craft book - the book was about how to make little animals out of walnuts. I will admit that I was completely confused. Was this person trying to send me a message about how nutty I was? Maybe that I'm weird like this book? or perhaps just that they know I enjoy crafts.

I don't know. There was no name to give me a head's up on who sent it. I shot an email to all my friends who work there and everyone kinda laughed at me (and stopped by my desk to check out this book on nut animals).

Fine - no one wanted to fess up. I could deal with that (although it did bug me who would send it to me and not tell me).

Since I got the book - I didn't think much more about it. Well - until this morning.

I got to work and did my normal routine getting water and getting my PC booted up. I stood up to talk to my cube-neighbor when I noticed this little gem of a bug.

Sitting on my desk, this little buggy is made of a styrofoam egg shaped belly (painted orange), a puffball head and nose, googly eyes, pipe cleaner antennae, felt wings, pipe cleaner legs and felt feet.

Perhaps whomever left it made it themselves or they bought it or got it from a creative child. No clue - but it did brighten my morning to find it on my desk.

I just don't understand why and I really want to know who. It is sweet someone is thinking of me, be it for a laugh at my curiosity or just trying to make my day a little better through these craft related surprises - but it is sweet in it's own, odd little way.

I just wanted to share with you this (for what seems to be at this moment) random act of kindness of what appears to be a secret craft admirer.

This is just walking the line between really cute and slightly worrying ;-). How fantastic though! I'm fascinated to know who it is.

I agree - right now it's fine, but its definitely strange.
