It's a lovely theme today for the new ATC Swap at The Stampman and one that's made me think about how I would define a friend. Until becoming a crafter there were few people who I would class as a real friend, whether that's because I didn't venture out much or because I had just not met the right people, I don't know, but having met so many lovely people through crafting I can now say that I have many special friends and some very special ones too! Crafting seems to attract the sort of people who I love to spend my time with, the ones who you can not see for ages and they don't think badly of you for it, the ones who can forgive you your off days and accept your failings, who support you and accept support these things define a friendship worth having and all of a sudden I find I have many people around me I am proud and privileged to call friend. So here's a little something for all my friends virtual and real given with oodles of love to you all.
Ok now you've had chance to reach for the bucket perhaps you'll remember a few friends of your own and send them a little reminder of how much they mean to you. Maybe an ATC!!!!
In any case hope you fancy joining in the swap this week with such a lovely theme.
There's also another wish granted at the wishing well today
"Dear Fairy at the bottom of the wishing well please could we see ways in which to use Suze Weinberg's hot wax".
Now there's a challenge!
If you want a few ideas for using hot wax too, do go see Isa's amazing tutorial over at
The Craft Barn, there is even a video!!!
Ok I'm off to colour some poppies now for the next Stampman Challenge
