Your friendship has been one of my most rewarding joys of blogging. I have enjoyed sharing and laughing and just being a part of your life and you a part of mine. Thanks for being in my life

Shellbelle said...

Oh Diane, I am so honored to be a part of your post today!

You hit the proverbial nail on the head when you wrote about life changing through blogging. The friends I've made have enriched my life beyond words. We are so incredibly lucky to have found such an amazing group of new friends.

Remember when we were in school in the "good old days" and they would talk about machines in the future and how they would change the way we do things and that they would do the jobs of many of us? Little did they know then how much they would affect our personal lives for the better. Blogging is an incredible tool for making new friends and I just can't imagine my life without it!

Thank you for all the support you have shown and for being my friend.

Now, let me add that your collage frames are INCREDIBLE! What a beautiful way to have the joy of our online community around you each and everyday. You have a great eye, they are works of art.

Hugs, hugs and more hugs!

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh my gosh, Diane, Your collage frames are unbelievable!!! I love them!!! And thank you so much for including my tag in your special collection...that is so sweet of you. I am so happy that you are my friend and you bring so much joy to everyone...it is such a blessing.
Wishing you a beautiful day! And I am so loving that clothesline...I use those in my collages and they always make me happy...They remind me of simpler times and pure happiness.

This is a wonderful idea, Diane! I have all of mine on corkboard in my studio. I love having them all clustered together where I can see them!

Thanks for the link to Shellbelles post. That was so cute!

I think your collages speak a lot about you as a person. They are all so neat.
