Be Thankful For Every Moment

My friend Mary and I are off to Spark the Event for the next few days making art and spending time together. I feel so incredibly blessed to have this time with her, nurturing our creativity and I am thankful to my awesome husband and kids for letting me slip away like this.

I made this for Mary

She just sparkles with beauty and life so I added lots and lots of jewels

And here's how I wrapped it. I think pattern paper is my favorite wrapping right now. All I added was some lace, a doily and a flower and it came together really nicely.

I won't be on my computer for the next few days so I hope you all have a wonderful weekend -
make something :)

I LOVE my red haired She girl! She is lovely and now in my craft room where I can be inspired by her and reminded of you when I work.
You are a dear friend. I cherish you.
Thank you so much.
