Friends of The Crafts Meow

the craft's meow.


Happy Mother's Day! I hope you're all having (or had) a fabulous day! ;)

When I started this little venture of mine, I had a bit of a conundrum... how to include the many friends I've made over the years here in bloggy land. Those friendships are very important to me. But I can't, practically speaking, have a DT that numbers around 30 and, of course, many are already committed to other gigs or have stores of their own.

Where there's a will, there's a way, and so I'm thrilled that these ladies have agreed to be Friends of The Craft's Meow, meaning they will guest design for The Craft's Meow on a rotating basis! Yay!

This month I'd like to introduce to you four very special ladies...

Grace is one of my Stampin' Sisters in Christ, and she is a true sister in Christ. She gives me the best advice, always with a kind heart. When Grace speaks, I listen! I consider her a spiritual mentor and friend. I am so blessed to have her in my life. I'm thankful for her support of me and TCM. In fact, she was one of the first people I confided in about my plans to start this company, and she did nothing but encourage me and pray for me. For this I will always be grateful. Not only is she a great friend, but she is one dynamite artist! You will love seeing her TCM creations.

I met Julia while on the Design Team for Waltzingmouse Stamps. Julia is just the sweetest person ever, so warm and generous. I was drawn to her immediately. You just can't help but love her. I could not ask for a better friend for TCM or for myself. Oh, and did I mention that Julia's beautiful creations are popping up right and left these days in lots of magazines? She's on fire! lol Thanks for letting me borrow her every now and then, Claire!

Linda's bloggy name is "Lovely Linda," and she is just that... a lovely person. She is also one of my Stampin' Sisters in Christ. Linda is always sharing and caring, lifting everyone up with encouraging words and prayer. And, of course, she makes the loveliest creations in her own very beautiful style. I know you will enjoy her art as much as I do!

I met Sue when she was a Guest Designer for La-La Land Crafts way back in the beginning. We started communicating through an exchange of blog comments, which later turned into emails. I'm so glad we connected. I always enjoy hearing from Sue, and I think she from me (*grin*), and I happen to think she is an amazing artist, not to mention a wonderful daughter, sister, mother and gwamma! We have a special bond, me and Sue. ;)

Please join me in welcoming these lovely ladies to Team TCM! They will be joining us for our mid-month Little Frieda release, sneak peeks for which start on Wednesday, so stay tuned.... don't touch that dial! lol

Hugs,
