Laughter is such a tonic

This week I caught up with my friends Jacquie of Jacquie Campbell Beads and Bronwyn of Korumburra Quilting. We went to the Warran Glen Cafe for lunch and spent a fabulous 4 1/2 hours laughing and laughing and laughing. And when Bronwyn started to eat her THREE desserts the waitresses were laughing too.

Bronwyn made me the most wonderful birthday presents.  She is so talented and creative and I was very lucky to receive such beautiful presents.  A really pretty Ipod cover, a delightful book bag with a really beautiful journal and a dear little loose tea dunker.

I love these women, such wonderful friends. I always feel awash with well-being for days after spending time with them, must be all the endorphins released when they make me laugh so much.  We are going to try to get together once a month this year which will be fabulous.

With Valentines Day on the way I thought I'd look for heart themed tutorials today.
