With Baby Steps You Gave My Creative Soul Wings!

How do you thank someone that opens a door to a whole new world for you? Someone who is both a teacher/mentor & friend? That was my problem. How did I thank my very special friend Diana Frey http://dianafrey.blogspot.com/ ? I sat down to create something just for her.
This sweet baby shoe tied with lace. A nest of two little pearls. And the soldered charms that say it all ... TEACHER & FRIEND!!!!!!
And the wings of course to signify what she gave to me.
I made this sweet little box with the velvet lid to protect it when I shipped it. And then for her to have a place to set it. The nest to signify beginnings.
And on the left is the card I made to send with it all. On the front of the card I made a photo of the bottom of my Secret Shaker Doll Necklace. I had so much fun when i went to California to make this. But, most of all was the treasure I found in Diana, the blessing of her friendship. How very lucky are we to have blogland to help us connect with such beautiful talented souls. Thank you Diana from the bottom of my heart.
