~Saturday Filled With Blessings~

Good morning my crafty friends, whom I love!!!

I am so very blessed to have friends all over the world, many whom I
am honored enough to meet at Craft functions and some whom I
have never met but still "know" them from conversations.

I wanted to share with you the power of crafting and love today.
Yesterday in the mail I received this beautiful card from Mandie Wade
who took the time to make this card AND included some lace in the
package because she knows I love lace!! I met Mandie in Chicago (CHA).
It always amazes me how kind and caring the craft community is.
I am nothing more than a country pink haired girl who dares to
share her life, both good and bad with anyone who will listen
and happen to play with paper and glue....yet I have made so many
amazing friends and feel the love of the craft community every single day!
So many crafters have come to me and because I am so open they
have started speaking out about their own lives.
I am always happy to see others speaking out and helping to raise
awareness of personal and painful issues.

I received this 8X8 layout from Bree who I have "known" online
for a very long time. I love how she used my layout as the photo.
And I received this AMAZING layout from Pam (whom I met in Texas).
I love how she used a picture of both of us! She was so beautiful in person
I mean STUNNING and her hubby was a RIOT my Johnny Cash! LOL
What an honor for Pam to scrap little ol' me! :)
I have come to find out that crafting is more than just art or
preserving memories. It is in fact a conduit to meet the most
amazing people who have a common interest.
The BIGGEST hearts around and the most loyal friends you could ever meet.
Crafting is definitely more than paper and is LOVE♡♡

~Thanks for letting me share my friends with you today~

I hate to admit that I am a little jealous of these women. I would love to meet you! I pray that day will come. In the mean time I am happy you share your work and yourself with us on your blog!
