I have to say that the most joy I get from blogging is the wonderful people I come in contact with daily. Some I have met personally and some I only know through this wonderful land of Bloz. So it occurred to me that I need to start pointing out how absolutely charming you all are. Today I am focusing on Greetings from Geralyn. A blogger that I met last year at Silver Bella.
We sat together in class and just seemed to click. You know how you are immediately drawn to certain people as soon as you meet? So we have kept in touch through e-mail and blogging. What a wonderful way to stay involved in a long distance friendship!
Geralyn and I are nearly the same age (she being the younger one) and her twins and my youngest are both graduating from high school and heading to college this year. We have similar tastes in creativity and we share mixed feelings about being empty nesters soon.
We are Bruce Springsteen fans, of course she is the ultimate fan being a Jersey girl, doting moms, paper artists, loving wives and now good friends.
Alas I am heartbroken to say that Geralyn will not be at Silver Bella this year. But for a good reason.
She has recently been hired for her DREAM job and is currently traveling to Boston and Chicago for training. Check out her blog to see where she will be working! It has to do with creativity and is the absolute perfect job for her.
Geralyn also has a lovely Etsy shop and I am telling you this girl is generous! When you order from her I guarantee you will be thrilled when you open your package!
If you are wondering where all the lovely treats I am posting here today are from...they are my give away prize from Greetings from Geralyn! Can you believe this? I almost fell over when I opened this treasure chest full of gorgeous rose themed goodies.
Lotions, mini books, loads of pretty papers, a folio of 10 rose prints that I am going to remodel a room around because I love them so much, rose covered bag...really more than I can list!
I am floored by Geralyn's kindness and feel honored to call her a friend. When she gets all settled in her new job I will bet we will be seeing all the latest in paper art supplies as well as news of her darling and artistic family. Thanks Geralyn, so glad we met.
What blogger are you hooked on today? I think I will try to post at least two of my faves each month just in case you haven't had a chance to visit them. Don't you just love making new friends?
Have a Friendly Friday, P.
