Wall Canvas made by Julie...all about books!

This is a picture of a lovely, lovely, gift that I received from a lady who has the most generous heart and positive spirit that I know!! I met Julie almost four or five years ago through a scrapbook site where people were able to share and comment on their layouts that they created. At first I was in love with this little website and many of the women were so welcoming, but none more than Julie. At some point, I started to pick up on the cattiness, backstabbing, and jealousy that was a commonplace occurrence. If one of the scrappers was noticed by a paper line for their designs and was asked to be on a Design Team, watch out people, those women were ready to tear you up into shreds. That was enough for me...so I quit posting and commenting, except for on Julie's...because she was the ONLY reason why I stayed there for the time I did. She's known for her out-of-control :) :):):):):):) and I love them, and her! If you like to scrapbook or craft, then you really need to check out Julie's blog. She has been on numerous Design teams and makes so many wonderful layouts, cards, gifts from objects you wouldn't even think could be so cool, and of course, her awesome canvas'. 

Julie- Thank you so much for my beautiful canvas! I love it so much and am working out a place to hang it as I write this! You are an amazing artist, but most of all, you are an amazing woman!!!

  8. That is such a sweet wall hanging! It makes me wish I was more crafty. Alas, I have tried and found that it's just not something I am passionate about. But as a result, my kids have a closet full of crafting supplies that should last them through many school projects, so not all is lost. :) Lovely tribute to your blog friend Julie!

  9. What a beautiful and creative gift! I'm so glad you shared it and introduced us to Julie. I'm definitely going to check out her blog now! It's so nice to see pleasant comments and acknowledgments for another person's hard work and kindness. I've been very lucky while blogging to "meet" so many wonderful people who have been helpful to me but I know there is plenty of nastiness out there. It's too bad it drove you away from the site you visited but it sounds like it was worth it to find a friend like Julie! :)
