So, we have friends of all kinds REAL life (you can touch) friends, INTERNET  friends, ART friends, and now FACEBOOK  friends...and I love each and every one.
Let me tell you about my friend Linda Baker-Hardy.  Linda (aka Mamapainter) is a wonderful crazy gal, lots like me...we are sarcastic, witty, and "play" a lot....but she has touched my heart so many times and in so many ways.  I met Linda on Etsy, in a mixed media forum we chatted in.  Instant bond!!! At least in my opinion...
So we have been buddies for a couple years  I would say.  Recently we decided to do an art swap, her and I...I was thrilled to do so.  I love Linda's art...I own some and have gifted a piece to my mom... I will show you my piece to her, when I can...she hasn't seen it yet...but here is the piece she made for me.  OMG, I was touched, it is sooooooo me....lol.  And she told me as much.  I do go on and on about my love of purses and all things girly, she even incorporated that....gotta love this one.  So let me now show you....
So thank you Linda, I love it...I love YOU...and I am so honored to call you my friend.  I also love the inscription on the back...one day we will meet in person...I KNOW it.   ~SMOOCH~
