~Crafty Blessing~

Good morning my lovely crafty friends,
I thought I was just scrapping a layout yesterday,
but it ended up being very emotional for some reason.

Crafting has brought such enrichment to my life.
It has brought me out of my shell and allowed me to be as brave and
bold as I needed to be to pursue happiness in a whole new way.
I have met the MOST amazing people of my life while
crafting and encouraging craftiness as a whole.
One of those amazing events happened around Christmas
when a bunch of my amazing crafty friends all got together
to buy a special gift for a dear friend.
It was not my crafty friends who surprised me as much as my husband!Who not only stood up and said "Let's do this how can I help" but also
when I told him I needed to drive to Alabama to deliver this gift
in time for Christmas Day, he stood up again and said "Let's GO!"I don't know why it surprised me, he knows I have a soft heart and he
always stands beside me helping with a smile...but for some reason it really
validated to me that he finds my crafting a treasure and not a nuisance in
any way shape or instead of scrapping the pictures of my gf, I decided
to make a layout in homage to him and his support.
I am rambling today sorry :)

Journaling strips:
I am always amazed by the incredible generosity and kind hearted
crafters I have met online and in person.
This year is no different, and the biggest blessing is hubby who always
jumps up to help me even if it means driving to Alabama before Christmas.
Such a blessing to meet amazing people who share my passion for crafting
and love for others. I am so blessed to have been a part of this special gift.
I will never forget those beautiful hearts, all for you Aymee.

Came but for friendship, and took away love.

Happy Monday my friends, I hope you find your passion in crafting
because when you find that love and passion, you will never let it go!

What a truly precious story Pinky and what a wonderful husband too - definitely a keeper!!! My dear husband sounds like he was cooked in the same mould as yours and I try to make sure he knows how much he means to me every day. (BTW he is not just my true love, he is my best friend)

Great LO for a special man & a special memory :o)
