Hello all !!! It’s soooooo cold outside. But wanting to warm your heart today … here’s a couple of pictures of a little something I made for a dear girlfriend of mine last week. I told her it was to celebrate her birthday. BUT, what a great excuse to celebrate our friendship! (as you can see, this gift was “Susan Branch inspired”… her book, her fabric that I used for the tea cup mats and felt fobs. She seems to know a thing or two about girlfriends!)





We ALL need girlfriends, do we not?!? I came upon a tribute to girlfriends when doing some filing the other day. I cannot give credit to the author, as I do not know. It was written from the perspective of a mother talking to her daughter. She explained the importance of keeping girlfriends in her life. It is great, and SO true. Here is part of it:

…Life happens.

Distance separates.

Children grow up.

Love waxes and wanes.

Hearts break.

Careers end. Jobs come and go.

Parents die. Colleagues forget favors.

Men don’t call when they say they will.

BUT girlfriends are there, no matter how much time and how many miles are between you.

A girlfriend is never farther away than needing her can reach…

This was passed on to me years ago from a dear girlfriend. It still touches my heart today.

Enjoy your weekend. Enjoy your girlfriends! I can’t even express how important mine are to me! You know who you are. I LOVE YOU ! ! !
