First things first...


Today, before I mix my blueberry, banana, orange and grape juice concoction that some wize old Dr. somewhere says is "good for my brain" - i'm heading into the bead room to add a new treasure created for me, by my dear friend Caleen. She's an amazing artist.

She takes scraps of vintage wallpapers, pieces of old tinsel, old vintage jewelry, lace, and whips them together into brand new works of visual art with new life. Oh! and let's not forget the glitter and the crystals! She's good at adding the sparkles to each piece...but she's best at adding sparkle to my life and to the lives of others.

I know how she's touched the lives of those around her. She's a kind and good hearted person who is truly filled with love, and is an example of Jesus Christ to everyone around her. We all love her so much. I truly do. I am blessed to have called her my friend these many years and will strive to be deserving of her friendship for ever more.

She's a treasure on the inside and out. And Caleen...THANK YOU for this. This is hanging here right in the middle of my inspiration board!

What a sweet post.. I really appreciate your friendship. I really love to create and I do realize not everyone has the same mindset as I.
That is o.k. I just create from what I have and just go for it. I have no rules and I do it Caleen's way.. ha.
You are a special friend and we all need to stick together.. I am happy you like it and will display it in your sweet Inspirational Bead room!
