My Faux Family Album is finished. I managed to find the right ribbon to bind it and voila! It's about an inch thick and it looks really nice. It will be interesting to see how the other folks finish theirs.
In other news, my friend Tiffini (you know the sweet sweet gal who made and sent me that beautiful and amazing charm bracelet as a surprise last March?) has just completed work on her online store. It's a beautiful and wondrous place and I have already ordered goodies! Pop on over and have a look. I know there will be things to tempt and delight you and amazingly, shipping is free! *faints* Congratulations Tiffini, your store is absolutely lovely!
Those of you who work with your hands, know how important your hands are. I have had ongoing issues with my hands. Believe it or not, my poor hands have been fraught with illness (3 different kinds!) in the last 4 months. Yesterday required another trip to the doc for another dose of news I did not want to hear. It's treatable, but I am growing weary of dealing with health challenges. That, added to other life "stuff" has left me feeling decidedly blue. The one bright spot right now is that my friend Liz is on her way here from England on Friday and we have plans to get together while she's in Vancouver. I can't wait. When I first met Liz, I loved her instantly. She is utterly lovely and a real kindred spirit-it was like I had known her forever. I am looking forward to us chatting up a storm and laughing till it hurts. Fly safely Liz and see you soon!
