I pray you have all been blessed to find friends like Tina through your online journeys; if not, try reaching out to someone you feel a kinship with because they have a similar design aesthetic, seem to share a similar sense of humor or have similar things they are going through as you etc. (That's how Tina and I met!) You never know, it could be the start of a beautiful friendship...:)

Sweet Gift from a Beautiful Friend...
One of the best things to come out of illustrating and blogging has been forming beautiful friendships with women I wouldn't have otherwise known. You know with a shared interest like stamping you'll be friends forever! Tina Gilliland is one of these people. Not only does she send me jokes, offer sage advice and send up prayers for me and my family, check in if she hasn't heard from me or seen me around on STV or my blog just to make sure I'm okay, but also sends gorgeous cards and gifts like this one for no occasion but to make me feel special. She sent this very special mirror she stamped with "Arranged with Love" and colored to look like stained glass( then packed it up like a newborn baby to make sure it survived shipping!) I love it Tina I and I love you!
