Good Friend......Sweet Cherie

Here she is.....my sweet friend Cherie Wilson. Her blog is Humble Pie & I adore stopping by every so often to read her inspiring words about God.....to see what she is stitching.....or doodling....or to see Truman her wonderful standard poodle who is one of the sweetest dogs I know. She is giving & a delight to be with. When I say giving....I mean giving in every sense of the word. She puts on these awesome girls retreats & teaches art. The girls adore her. The last girls retreat she helped with was called 'One Girl' and it was the best. The girls learned that 'One Girl' can make a difference.

Cherie called me one day and asked if i could make the director of the retreat a pendant. Of course I could & I would love to. Well....what Cherie didn't know was that I wanted to make a multitude of pendants for her....so that she could pass them out to deserving souls....who might really like to have one. I got right on task & went directly to my bible to find the scripture that was the theme of the retreat. Psalm 33:11 'The counsel of the Lord stands forever. The plans of His heart to all generations.' I love it...beautiful words to know & comforting too....knowing that the Lord stands forever. What was really the best was surprising Cherie & helping her out & making something for her & her retreat that will give joy for a long time to come.

Some time ago.....I won this give away from Cherie's blog Humble Pie. I had to guess where she got the inspiration for her doodle on her Banner at the top of her blog. Well I guessed right away....she got the inspiration from Speckled Egg.....one of the little trinkets that Heather sells. I love to shop there. The little Thank-you notes are just too cute.....just another one of Cherie's creative endeavors. For another look at Cherie's creativity check out the newest addition of Somerset Holiday....there you will be able to glimpse a book page she created for Gina Grable's Twelve Day's of Christmas swap she hosted for Silver Bella 2 years ago. Cherie is now a published artist & I am so proud of her. It is great to have someone as special as Cherie in my life.

Hi Hope! So nice to meet you. I'm glad you stopped by my blog. I have been looking at your blog and we have so much in common. You love to collect and make pretty things just as much as I do. Although you do have your craft room much more organized! I have visited near your area, I think. Went to Odon/Loogootee area a couple of years ago where my sister's in-laws live. Went to a wonderful Amish flea market that I loved! I'm adding you to my favorites.
