Today I am giving a big virtual hug to three woman who throughout the past year have whetted my crafty appetite with more crafty projects than I can ever hope to complete, have provided continuous exercise for my crafty fingers, and have broadened my crafty horizons by way of amigurumi and knitting/felting and creating beautiful objects from what I used to regard as trash!

Thank You - Sister Diane

Thank you Diane!

I am beginning the "2013 thank you series" with the person who has had the greatest impact on both my blog and my craft this past year - my daughter Diane - known on line as Sister Diane and creator of Craftypod and doting mother of my grandkitty, Pushkin.

Taking Time Out to Say Thank You

Danish woven paper hearts - for summer!

Don't you love these sweet little Danish woven hearts - made just especially to introduce a little break in "regular programming" - a time set aside to recognize and appreciate bloggers, and others I have met on line, who have enriched and informed my crafty life during the past year.

Shared Adventures in the Crafty Blogiverse!

Just messing around with one of the images of "first tulip"! A kind of bouquet, if you will, to two lovely women, Antoinette and Betsy, who have taken time recently to write me and share the results of their own personal new adventures inspired by projects shared here on Gingerbreadsnowflakes.

What especially pleased me is that the projects that provided inspiration are near and dear to my heart, (and as is usually the case with me, not so much "mainstream" popular.)
