When I stumbled back into card-making in the Fall of 2008, I thought I was merely re-learning my love of paper-crafting. Little did I know that it would also open a NEW world of making long-lasting friendships with some of the most amazing people in the world.
My recent vacation in Orlando, Florida gave me another chance to connect with my mentor and friend whom I have known for over 2 years-- Lin! To add to that as a bonus, I met the SWEET Savannah (whom I have known through our DT from Etsy Inspired Challenge since last summer).. She fast became my new young best friend even since!
Here's a video for you. I must confess that I am
a little very much embarrassed about this video as I seemed to be a crazy and overly excited woman (to put it mildly)! Nevertheless, I am sharing with you as it gives you an idea what it's like to meet my BIG sis Lin and the sweet Savannah!
Big thanks to our DHs (Denny and Dr.John) and my children who joyfully make this possible. We had lunch together at the Wave restaurant in Disney's Contemporary Resort. As you can see, I was proudly wearing the famous Hero Arts Pin Flower that Lin made especially for me!
Savannah enjoyed her chili as we chatted about all things related to cards. I even shared some tips about cooking with Savannah as she is determined to learn to cook and bake more (Say NO to eating out, Savannah!). Savanna is SO talented that she shared a few of her published work in the upcoming issue of Papaercraft March/April issue and CARDS. Huge congrats, Sav, on your pub!!
Here's a dessert that we three shared
We took the monorail and explored the grounds in the Polynesian Resort
The surroundings were absolutely stunning....we all felt that we were living in a dream!
We managed to spend 5-6 hours together! It was super short, but oh...so fun!
I was beyond thrilled to finally see Lin in person . When it was time to say good-bye, my son David said: "Here's comes the water works!!" And yes, my tears poured right out! Thank you, Lin, Denny and Savannah for driving 3 hours to see me and my family. I will always remember this special day!
