And man, I can't remember, so let's pretend that she is new to you... We have been friends since 7th grade (she was in 8th, but we were in the same homeroom, were both tall, with dark hair, and a penchant for silliness.) We have ridden the ebb and flow of life and growing up and have found ourselves now as crazy, artistic, stay at home mommies...seeking the balance between art, craft, life, family, and self (not necessarily in that order.) It has been a wild trip, but I am happy that we get to meet somewhere on the continuum. She inspires me to keep trying new things and to have confidence in my own style artistically. It is just nice to have a friend like this... AND she totally introduced me to blogs, and since I am vain I started my own.
Wait, did I just call all of us who blog vain?? Yep, well, maybe not you, but I am a kind of vain, I will admit it.Speaking of vain...
Here is my first totally HAND stitched project (it ended up being about 12X14 inches). I am so pleased with myself. Really, I am. I struggled with starting it and then when I had to give away in this swap...I just wanted to keep it. Finally, I had to seal it in it's envelope, so I wouldn't look at it anymore. All so I could take it to the post office and send it away!
I am feeling some bad vibes from blogger right now...I will be back!
