A Friends Warmth ...










The warmth of a friend's presence brings joy to our hearts, sunlight to our souls, and pleasure to all of life...


How lucky I was to have my good friend Michelle visit me for some crafting time. My children were spending the day with my sister, so I decided to take advantage of a quiet house and enjoy some 'girl time'. About two hours into our crafting a car pulls in the driveway and it's my sister -my children wanted to come home! As much as I welcomed their arrival, I worried that my dear friend Michelle might want to take cover from the chaos and return to her quiet home (she and her husband do not have children). A house full of eight children did not scare her away. I felt truly blessed as she sat across the table from me sharing her creative talents and good conversation. Though she worked on some boy cards (that took my breath away!), I managed to toss together some small projects and a card purse (holds cards inside-yes, I finished those too but didn't take pictures). I leave you with a peaceful heart ... until next time :)

Who refreshes others will be refreshed. -Proverbs 11:25

These cute cards have a small cellophane bag with lollipops inside ... they are so cute!

I love your cute little cards/lollipop holders, Samie! You do very nice work, and after reading every post on this page (and not having time to comment on them all), I love your heart even more. You sound so sweet, and it's obvious that you cherish your sisters, but did you ever stop to think about what a blessing YOU must be as a sister to them?! ;)
