Hi folks. Are you all pumped up, like me, that it's Thursday? For those of you who don't know what Thursday means to me -- it's my weekly wing & beer night with my friends. It's a highlight to my week because it's the day before Friday (and we all love having a weekend off--don't we?) and I get to chat and laugh myself silly with my friends.
And speaking of friends, look what my BFF made me for Christmas. (mom, BFF means "best forever friend"). Who is she, you ask? Kim, from Running on Ink. Kim is a talented artist who has a love for collage and soldering. Recently, Kim was in a cottage swap, and just couldn't resist turning a small project into a big project. Click here to see the cottage she soldered together.
There are two types of people in life. One is, "look what I want to do one day" and "look what I did today." Kim never ceases to amaze me with her talent--and how quick she can move. I am very good at sending her links to sites because "this is what I want to do one day." No sooner have I said it, Kim is posting the done project on her blog the next day--LOL. Recently, I showed her a free doll pattern on line and look what she got made in the next 24 hours. Isn't this gal amazing?
For Christmas, Kim made me this gorgeous necklace, which I'm wearing today. I can't wait to show it off this evening, because my friends always comment on the interesting jewelery I wear (ok, so I am eccentric sometimes). Her soldering job is amazing.
Kim's blog banner has an interesting story. Upon designing, and drawing, her own banner, the owner of justjohanna noticed it immediately and contacted Kim to ask if she could turn these birds into stamps. Guess what? Kim's rubber can now be purchased at justjohanna.
Thanks for your friendship Kim.
