There is much to celebrate today!

First, join me in wishing a happy birthday to blogging buddy Robin Bird of Bird Tweets!

Her blog is a fun mix of recipes, gorgeous photos and great humor! Stop by wish good wishes!

On Saturday my friend Gina came to visit -- we're almost like twins -- born a day apart, nine years apart. We share the craft gene!

So, it had been a mighty long time! It was hard to stop talking, but we managed to do so long enough to celebrate belated holidays -- definitely Christmas, maybe birthday too -- who knows. It was just fun!
So, I had to share a couple of my favorites, beginning with the big Laurel Burch bag she put them in! Here's a close-up of the pattern!

Then these wonderful stitchmarkers she made (a fellow knitter!) using glass beads she made!

(And packaged in this cute little Laurel box!)

Then there was an array of creative materials.

Take a look at this card stock...

12x12, solid color both sides, but when you tear it, the tear is a coordinated color.

You can also distress it. Catch the linen pattern that comes through with the paler coordinate!

I loved the swatch book and paper pieces.

Rub ons, stickers, shiny paper, a decorative edging punch, postits, you name it!

And this pretty little drawstring bag she got in Korea!

I was the luckiest recipient in the world, mostly because it was from my friend!

For all the bloggers who have never met Jeanie, she's a super person and a great friend! It's a pleasure to share my addiction to crafts with her :-)

Cool stuff- especially those stitch markers- much more inspiring than the plastic rings I've been using!
