hello Monday and a little thanks to Mistress Fate

...everyone once in a while I like to give 
old Mistress Fate a look in the eyes and say thanks.

So...Hello Monday, and today seems like a great day to do that with some nice news to share and a fresh new week stretching out before me...
A very long time ago, let's say 199-2001 give or take -- I really cannot recall -- I had a very bad headache when was trying to pack up from a show.  
I was a mess, and this nice gal came along and helped me get my things into boxes as she waited for a friend to finish her shopping.

There are some really wonderfully kind, generous good people in the world and on that day I met one... All these many years later, that nice gal has become my dear and true friend...Sue Parker.
 She is one special lady, kind, generous and a truly creative spirit...
just look at the adorable little studio she's created for herself in a spare bedroom...it's here she gets her creative on and makes wonderful pincushions, paper follies and charming notions...

She has helped Earth Angels to grow with those helping hands and now we are even lucky enough to share her Skippy Doodle creations on our site.

So how cool is it that fate put her right there in front of me when I needed her, and she was willing to help...

So Hello Monday and hello to fateful meetings...

Hello nice press for Sue and her designs in the latest issue of "Make It Vintage" from Beckett Media of California...

 Hello a little dose of cuteness...
 Hello using old things in new way....
 Hello to holding special friends close...

Hello new week...can we say goodbye snow?? 

Have a great one whatever you are up to...it's time to pack for our Florida event and I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to a little work time in the sun, and fitting in a little fun too.

See the events page if you are near Sanford, FL 2/28 & 3/1

xxoo Jen
