The Posse after a couple Margaritas
Well, all you, self depreciating "not cool enough for Betty" folks... You are all my official BBI- BFF Posse, (including Michelle, and if she wants to bring Heather Ross over for Margaritas.. I say, "come on down". She does seem so very cool.) I was so totally amused and cheered by your comments and all your links and near links to celebrity.
Which Brings me to "The You Make my Day Award" which I so was pleased to receive from
Drewzel. Man, she is a talented thrifter and crafter and glorious in her wealth of good embroidery skills. (Dear god... she has like 3 blogs and I can't keep up with one.) It really did make my day. These fantastic Australian Ladies... They all blow my mind.
( and I was tagged by Futuregirl too... but by now I expect the whole world knows that the respect there is super mutual. We got a thing goin' on.)
Yesterday, these were the people that made my day:
Alice and Stef and Angelina feel like craft sisters to me.
Sonya is a partner in crime, plus she taught me to needlefelt.
Amber has her own fabric store and holds an incriminating picture (or two) of me.
Maddie has been a fantastically funny new friend. And she has a cat like mine and she sleeps with the toy I sent him. Devoted!
Mary- Laure takes gorgeous photos and saves her pastry boxes.
(and I swear it is like a life goal to have a friend who lives in Paris and is a dancer.. and she is as sweet as can be. because she eats pastry. even though she's a dancer.)
Ambika makes me want to try harder to pay attention to my outfits.
Susan make me want to take a photography class and redecorate. Plus, I have her earrings on right now.
Wende makes me want to be a better mom.
Amy has a quality of elegance that is simple and unpretentious.
Dorie reminds me that it is quality that counts and detail matters.
Pam has a way with color and people, she is charm itself.
Moonstitches shows art in the everyday. Composed photos that reinvent their subjects. And crafty too.
Minnie is a Brand New Friend . Coooool! Relatively local and a spats pattern? She's in.
Catherine is a Treasure Hunter Extrodinaire and designs good handbag.
You can forward the award, if you are into it. I found it hard until yesterday.. and then suddenly it was easy.
Oh and BFF dream candidate, Bre Pettis?
He * hearted* my Etsy Shop. I am in Craft Geek Heaven.
I am going to make a video podcast to celebrate this momentous occasion.
