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!
