Friendship isn't a big thing...

it's a million little things!
I can literally say, if it weren't for friends I wouldn't be where I am today.
April, I made a sudden and unexpected move and friends came and moved me to my new home.
This is the first card I have made in my new space.

Middle son is staying with friends while doing an Ironman Triathlon 

and kindly asked me to make him a thank you card he could send.

The newest stamp from Quietfire Design got me started.

The quote is stamped in VersaFine Sepia and thermal embossed clear, on Spellbinders Majestic Labels 1.

The inside

Now that I've unpacked pen, ink and paper- No Excuses! back to the drawing board!

DS is looking for hospitality the night of August 7 in Milwaukee for a National USA Triathlon .
(Leave me a comment or message if you would enjoy having him)
You know you will get a very nice card!

French Broad Food Co-op 40th! and Annual Meeting

The French Broad Food Co-op celebrated 40 years and some firsts Sunday June 7th.
For the first time, there was both a Board and Owner quorum with our going into the store and dragging owners into the meeting so they could vote!
For the first time there were more candidates than open positions for the Board!
Almost 100 owners were present, and there were many complimentary comments during both comment/question period.

The meeting was well run, with refreshments! And covered lots of ground from approval of minutes to new opportunities for member investment.

The educational mission was strong throughout the meeting with lots of time for owner comments and clear and informative reports on upcoming by law changes and updates on the possible expansion.
Yes, code word possible.
 An outside firm has been hired to work up many possible scenarios, and there were well facilitated breakout groups to vision how 6 areas of interest could be accomplished.

Dinner to celebrate 40 years was catered by Green Opportunities, and members were asked to share history and stories about the past 40 years.

2134 owners strong, and lots of energy and opportunities to support the future of cooperatives in Asheville!

Lots more info and minutes on the FBFC website.

Got Swap? WOYWW June 3

It still creates awe in me each time someone I have never met sends me a work of art from their hands and heart.
And a WOYWW button!
How did you know I was wanting one!
Thank you Julia and all for art, friendship, inspiration, fun and more!

Still in a major state of "where is it!?"
Finally found nail polish stash(don't ask!) as there was no way I was going to buy more!

Off to visit, and if you ever find yourselves in the beautiful mts of Western NC, please do come by and visit me , swap or not!
