yesterday, i shared photos of vignettes in our living room. i think i shared that the sunlight floods my studio as well, so here are some shots i took yesterday(it's a good thing i took them yesterday, because today it is soooo gloomy out)
i hung one of my goodies from pam on the door of my shabby storage unit in my studio. in my living room, as i shared, i have lots of special pieces that represent family...and in my studio, i have special pieces from my artist friends. i love that everywhere i look, i see inspiration from the wonderful friends i've met through this crazy hobby!
the glitter star ornament was a part of a lovely gift bag full of sentiments from my australian friend susan.
*all the great mail days of december had me worried that i would go through withdrawal in january...but i shouldn't have worried. two of my dearest friends have rocked my january mail!
tara is honestly one of the sweetest, most caring, true friends ever. and she is super talented too. i am proud and blessed to call her friend.
and another of my dear friends, karon sent this:
karon and i have this great connection...and to think it all started with an email a few years ago. so thankful for her friendship. love the stocking, and the gorgeous ribbon she wrapped it in! she said it had *becky* written all over it. cracks me up! old, wellworn...that's me!
this photo is of all the kits, almost ready to go to connecticut. i am soooo excited! going back for the third time to scrapbook clubhouse, is like going home! i've met such awesome women there in the past...i'm looking forward to seeing *old* friends and meeting new.
since i will be in CT this weekend, i will miss kirby and amba's move. they have purchased their first home and will be moving in this weekend. i'm hoping to get down to see them and the house next week.
jared had a game last night and they won! it hasn't been the most winning season, so we were happy they came away with a win. i have to say again, what a great group of guys they are. we brought a cooler with gatorade and water for after the game, since it was so far from home. EVERY single dude looked tom and i in the eye and thanked us. EVERY one. i was impressed. the character of these guys and their coaches always comes through. once again, i am thankful for this experience for j.
