Tonight I am looking forward to hanging out with my beautiful niece!  We are more like sisters.  She is quite a bit younger than me, and my niece from my husband's side of the family.  Her friendship to me is really a pleasant surprise.  Because she is younger, I dismissed the idea of us being good friends because I am a mother of four,  have been married for 10 years and quite possibly in her eyes - old.  She is in college, single, gorgeous, and young.  We had a mutual love - scrapbooking!  Early in the summer we decided to get together to scrapbook one day and it turned into once or twice a week.  We later added yummy foods and coffees to our get togethers.  Then it turned into evenings out for dinner and concerts and shopping trips.  She has become my best friend.  Such a pleasant and unexpected surprise.  I've learned to never rule out a friendship.  You never know who may become your best friend.  So this weekend she is home from college and we are going out to eat, and doing a little Christmas shopping and then maybe catching a chick flick (after all - who else will see Highschool Musical 3 with me??).  =)  

On the crafting front. . .I found a new etsy artist whose work I just love!  She has the cutest prints and embroidery patterns and more.  You can find her here.  I especially love this print.  I love finding new artists from blog links, so I thought I'd share some with you!  Yes you - my one reader, mom.  Haha!  I'm pathetic.  One more link. . .I also found this great crafting website with fun tutorials and embroidery patterns and craft book reviews. The patterns are super easy and look great framed or on tea towels.  I just finished my first project and will get a pic uploaded soon.  The site is called 
Pimp Stitch.  Have a wonderful weekend and maybe call someone who you have ruled out as your best friend.  You just never know. . .
Warm regards,
