During the last few weeks, I have been featuring some of the online friends who have been teachers, contributors, conspirators - people who have enriched my blog content, my online experience and my time spent at the craft table.
But there are many, many more! MANY, MANY MORE! Each adding significantly to my life on and off line during 2011.

Image from Things Bright - beautiful journal pages!
I still vividly remember the day when I first saw these journal pages on Things Bright. They rocked the entire foundation of what I had considered journaling to be!

Most likely, I will have this gorgeous Dala Horse fabric covering my dining table most of the coming year - except perhaps during the spring while my dining room is being used as a green house!
But the rest of the year, definitely! I have been told that Dala Horses are enjoyed year round in Sweden so why in the world would I not have it out where I can enjoy it every day!

Mega Crafty! Where do I start? I guess the beginning would be the best place!
I don't remember if she found me or if I found her! But pretty soon after meeting, I was the lucky one to win her crafty giveaway in which she filled up a BIG cardboard box with crafty goodness for every possible celebration occurring during the year.

Her stocking giveaway is right up my alley! It is all about Christmas! And stuffing stockings with all kinds of surprises and treasures! Participating makes me feel like Santa, Father Christmas and St. Lucy, and a Christmas Elf!

St. Lucia Day as it is celebrated in Italy! It is not easy to find information.
Even though St. Lucia was born in Sicily, her day is not widely celebrated in Italy - mostly in Siracusa - the town of her birth - and in the villages of the north.
Information abounds if one is looking for ways in which Scandinavian people celebrate St. Lucy Day. But finding information about Italian customs and traditions - much more difficult.

Oh how I love my little Estonian Päkapikk! She came all the way across land and sea from Estonia, just to live with me!!

Arielle's photo of billboard advertising Christmas dinner from KFC on Okinawa, Japan.
The winter holidays were extra special for me this year because four very generous online friends were willing to share their own stories of Winter Holiday celebrations and traditions in Japan, Poland, Estonia and Italy.
I completely understand how much work and thought and time went into the pictures and words that made up each story. I am grateful beyond words.

Happy Valentines Day to my beautiful daughter Diane and my handsome Grandkitty, Pushkin!
In giving me the this little blog-ship so that I could venture out into internet space - specifically the crafty blogiverse, Diane has given me two most excellent gifts: connections with amazing, brilliant, talented friends, and opportunities for learning and exploring new ways to express myself artistically.
I have never kept my appreciation a secret!
