You've Got a Friend.

In the mail this week arrived a wonderful chunky book full of love, good wishes and friendship from my favorite fabulous sister, the Sunshine Club at Follow Your Bliss, and other art friends. Thank you for such a beautiful special gift.

Some of the best lessons in life are often acquired during our most challenging times. In the past year I have come to realize the greatness and importance of family and the many friends I am blessed with. I treasure and value all of you.

Tchotchke Shmotchke

This was a first for me. I made a tchotchke pin for a swap Red Lead is doing. Looking for the origin of this word, I learned that a tchotchke is Yiddish slang for an inexpensive souvenir, trinket, or ornament. Fun!
