Meet My Besty
I'm fun, she's funner. I'm talented, she's amazingly talented. I'm a giver, she's generous to a fault. I can shop, she's turned it into an art form! She says she's my evil twin ~ but really she's a sweetheart.
She and I met back in 2001 when I lived in Raleigh, NC. We both worked for the YMCA. She was working in the nursery and I was in the front office yet we didn't know each other. We even took a quilt class together and our whole conversation went "You work at the "Y" right?" "Yes." "I thought I recognized you." That was it! We had a mutual friend at work, Ann, who kept telling us (separately) that we should be friends but it really didn't happen ~ not sure why. Then one day she came into the front office to see Ann and she had this amazing dress with her. It was a Halloween dress she had made for her youngest daughter. Now THAT caught my attention and we started to talk but only at work.
her own Etsy shop here. It's more of a supply shop with some great fabrics and yarns. Definitely worth checking out.
She's got an eye for color and a flair for the unique. I learn something from her every time we are together.
I'm telling you ... she even makes beautiful babies. Just look at her girls up there with her!
And it that wasn't enough ~ check out what she sent me for my birthday this year.... Yes, she painted it ~ just for me! It goes so amazingly well with my dining room and I can't even begin to tell you how much I love it. This picture of it does not even begin to do it justice. There are so many layers and highlights, it's just incredible. I can't wait to hang it in my dining room once we move.
All of you know that I call my darling husband honey ~ well she's my other honey! I believe when you love someone you should never miss an opportunity to tell them so. We end every conversation with "Love you" ~ and I do.
Thanks honey, for being my besty and for always being there for me ~ I'll always be there for you!
