Wonderful Wednesday 1/4/12

As things really take off this week into the New Year I am reminded at how lucky I am to have some of the most wonderful friends.  I have three close friends that each, in their own way, support and love me.  It is because I have this love and friendship in so many different ways that I can continue to do my kreations day after day.  They all bring such difference of opinions to each topic, yet somehow we always seem to be able to meet in the middle.  
I thought I would start the New Year off right and give each of them their due.

First, there is Marsha from Pandula Arts Creations.  I have known her the longest – over 17 years!  She has a wonderful – amazing –  talent for fiber weaving, but has dabbled in crocheting, knitting, pencil drawing, painting, pine needle basket weaving, and even beadweaving!  Her patience and creativity always amaze me.  She has mostly been self taught, which is amazing in itself! Here is one of my favorite creations of hers.

Then there is Kris from Aprons by MeMe.  We not only found common ground in her love of crafting, but we also share the love of my Monster.  I found Kris during a ‘babysitter’ crisis and it turned out to be a long and wonderful friendship.  Her talent with a sewing machine amazes me.  Her love of her ‘babies’ is something that I cherish.  We have so much in common that we even started traveling together for craft shows and marketing each others items.  Her support and friendship has been time enduring!  Here is one of my favorites of hers.
And last but never least, Amber from Ambers Art Alley.  She and I became friends over our love of our children.  Her daughter was in my girl scout troop and we bonded almost instantly.  Her constant friendship and support took me through many dark days when my hubby was deployed in Iraq.  Our children share a special bond and act more like brothers and sister than friends.  Her love of  painting has blossomed over the past year, and is now more than just a ‘side line’, it is her passion.  With a handed down easel and discounted paints she can make any scene into a work of art…. just think what is to come!  Here is one of my favorites of her work (that I don’t own, yet).

So, here is to us – GALS – and to all that we can do in the New Year.  It will be amazing, that much I know!

I actually have a new listing!  Ya hooo!!  This one is very simple, but it SPARKLES and SPARKLES!

    You humble me Max! All this time I have been thinking that you were ‘my’ inspiration, with all of ‘your’ talent! Thank you so much.
