Meet My Friends...

There's not a lot of news here at home, same old thing, housework, housework, getting ready for a show in Oak Ridge, TN, more housework, yardwork, more housework ~ at least that's how it seems and I'm busy as a bee!

So, I'd like to take this "no news with me" opportunity to introduce you to a few of my friends. They have been such a blessing to me and are wonderful artists ~ they create from the heart and it shows in their work. If you visit their site or blog, please leave them a little note. Don't worry if you can't buy something at the time, just let them know you've been visiting and what you think of their handmade items. A kind word here and there really makes one's day, not only for the receiver, but for the giver as well.
