“I get by with a little help from my friends.”
– John Lennon
This year on Valentine’s Day I wanted to dedicate a post to my friends who have brought joy into my life and who have given me some of their wonderful creations. And their packages always came at a time when I needed a boost.
My friend Danielle has given me a few handmade gifts. She has an online shop, called Twist 21, where she sells her delightful jewelry pieces. I met her via “Link Love” on Facebook and the piece that connected us was a ladybug pendant of hers that I commented about. Since I am a ladybug fan, I found her ladybug pendant to be a favorite piece of mine from her shop. We have kept in touch via e-mail almost everyday since last year in March. And last year Danielle wanted to give me a ladybug pendant since that is how we first met. At Christmastime, she sent me a lovely button ring and a sparkly button ornament pendant.
My friend Caroline sent me this absolutely adorable Queen of Hearts pin for Valentine’s Day this year. She and I met last year via a Holiday Gift Exchange through Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine. I received a lovely Holiday exchange gift from her and I blogged about the handmade angel ornament that she sent to me. After I blogged about her ornament I sent her an e-mail to let her know how much I loved the gift that she made. We continue to keep in touch via a common bond for a love of glitter and the enjoyment of each others friendship.
And my friend Hannah gave me this wonderful origami crane mobile for a Christmas present. Awhile ago she had me pick out three sheets of my favorite paper at the Scrapbook Cottage. This last Saturday, before we went to the make n’ take she gave me the mobile. It is awesome and I love it. Hannah and I met a few years ago in a ceramics class that we both took while in college. We both share a love for nature, watercolors, photography and cooking some tasty veggie meals. Hannah started a photography business, Hannah Marie Photography and takes beautiful photos at weddings and other events.
Thank you ladies for bringing the gift of friendship into my life!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
