Blessed Beyond Measure

Have you ever had a day when you were so excited your heart could hardly stand it? Friday was a day like that for me. I was finally able to meet one of my blogging favorites, Janis of Junk Dreams.
She is an amazing artist and as Anne of Green Gables would have said, we are kindred spirits.
I have chosen a special word for 2010, rather than doing the usual New Year's Resolution. It was an idea I got while reading renowned scrapbooker Ali Edwards blog. It is a word that I chose - looking for quotes, art, whatever I may come across to bring back my own personal peace.
I have seen Janis' work in The Passionate Home and contacted Janis, asking if she would create a special piece that I could have in my home to focus my thoughts on. As you can see, she agreed. We met at a local coffee shop, she had four for me to choose from. These are the two that I brought home. Janis, you are indeed a special person, and I thank you.


My sister took the photo of Janis, Carrie and myself at the Passionate Home. A day I will surely not forget.
