I've only ever had two true hobbies, horses and crafting. For years we 'moved' in the 'horsey' community, still do to some degree, but believe me there is a distinct difference to those who circulate in the crafty world. No offence is meant to our lovely equine friends, but in my view 'crafty' people really are unique. Where else do you meet people who are willing to share their talents, be happy if you like their work and want to create something similar and offer what I believe to be truly genuine comments about each others work. In today's world such sincerity is rare.
So what has brought all this on, well I have thought this for some time, but today prompted me to commit my thoughts to paper or should I say blogland. A blogging friend and fellow crafter Christine of Craftings Cosy Corner send me a beautiful thank you card and I was truly taken back........ you will see my card made by Chris on her blog. What promoted this card ........ well, last week Chris put a post on her blog asking if anyone knew the details of a stamp. I did as I had it so gave her the details, but when she searched found it had been discontinued, so I did what lots us would do, stamped her up some images with that stamp and a few with one of a similar style which I thought she would like and posted them off thinking no more about it.
So I want to say a huge thank you to Chris for her thoughtfulness. I have put a link to her blog above, please check out her work, it is quite unique and wonderful and I have already done a spot of scraplifting.
As usual I can't do a post without a picture so am sharing one of a beautiful orchid that we have on flower at the moment. It is a special orchid as it was my Dad's who some of you will know died at Christmas.
