One of the hard but great things about moving is making new friends. It's hard to start over every few years, but the Army does a pretty good job of helping you connect if you are willing to get out of your house and join a few groups. My best source of new friends comes from Protestant Women of the Chapel (PWOC). Today, one of the ladies I met through that group came over to play in my craft room. Here's what we made (and it even goes along with the challenges over at Heart2Heart and CASology):
I wish the picture did the ombre coloring justice. I was showing my friend Copic markers. I did the "t" and then she did the rest. We used R24, R27, and R29.
My friend had to leave before I got this finished, so she didn't get to see the finished product. I think I will take it to her when we meet for PWOC again next Tuesday. We had such a great time just brainstorming several ideas and working off each other's creativity. So fun to find a kindred spirit in a new place.
On the writing front, I have also found a kindred spirit in a published author who lives only fifteen minutes away. I showed her my manuscript, she tore into it, and I am liking how the revisions are making my characters come alive.
All this talk of kindred spirits makes me want to watch Anne of Green Gables. Maybe I'll get a group of gals together to watch it with me and find more kindred spirits among them.
Until next time,
