A Special Christmas Gift

I went to the mailbox yesterday, fighting through the spitting snow and bitter cold, to find something that warmed my heart. My long-time, long seperated, artfully reunited, friend, Laurie Blau-Marshall sent me a little surprise with a book I purchased from her etsy shop. This is special, as it is her first published work, (Somerset Memories December 2008)and was done in honor of our friendship. I can’t tell you how wonderful it made me feel to open it. I’m honored Laurie, and though it graces my Christmas decortated fireplace mantel now, it will go into my studio to remind me of all of the wonderful things that have come out of my artful journey this past 1 1/2 years. Thank you girlfriend. May your holidays be filled with the warmth of family and friends!

  5. You are waaaaaaaaay more than welcome! You know my procrastinating, bad girl heart has been meaning to send it to you ever since they sent it back! (ahem…9 months ago…) I just commented on the Chrysti interview – do you realize that we met in 1976???I’m finally recovered and will be attempting to write a blog post today – in between laundry loads! I didn’t do a thing while I was sick, it’s dirty dish and laundry central here. Plus it’s a snow day – no school, my gal is getting cabin fever here.Have a great day!(be back on Etsy board soon, too)xoxoLaurie
