Packed Up And Ready To Go

Not me, these pretty in pink party things for the cupcake store, Cupcakery Bakery and Boutique in lovely Thousand Oaks California. In all actuality, I delivered them yesterday, but just got around to doing this blog post. Trying to be funny I guess.
Also this side view of a black, gray and cream crown is for someone and you know who you are. It's just a bit of a tease for her, as she will not see the front until she opens the box. This crown will be leaving my house tomorrow, it's taking a short trip up state.
Guess what happened today? The most amazing and fun thing.
You have all heard me talk about my friend Jean in Rhode Island, well we have emailed back and forth everyday for the last several years. We met because somehow she found my blog and wanted a crown. Then we became fast friends. We have a lot in common and the rest is history. Anyway last week she asked of I would make her a few items for an upcoming birthday in her family, so I did, and she received the package today. Well instead of emailing me like we always do, my phone rings, and it's Jean on the other end. Well big deal you say. Yes it is, you see it's the first time we have ever talked to each other on the phone, and we didn't know what we each sounded like.
Isn't that weird? You get some idea in your head, but you never know what someone will sound like or look like for that matter. She has seen pictures of me, but I have no idea what she looks like, because she is a girl, who says she doesn't take a good picture. One of those girls. I have conjured up a pretty picture of her in my head though. I think I will see what she looks like when we meet in person someday.
OK, so I'm rambling today, forgive me for that, but it was all very exciting for me.
It made my day!! Thanks Jean!
I hope you have enjoyed my ramblings today. You all have a wonderful day, and upcoming weekend!!
Chat again soon.
PS, Jean this song is for you!!

Hi Rosemary,
What a wonderful day for you and for Jean too! All your crown creations are beautiful, I always love it when you take photos of them for us. Wonder where that first one is heading? ;)

Have a great evening, I've had a day here and I'm in need of a glass of Sofia big time... can't wait 'til hubby gets home so I can break open that chilled bottle and have a few Wheat Thins with it.

Your crowns are so lovely!

I have a few of those sorts of friends, too. Isn't it funny how close we can feel to people we've never laid eyes on physically?
The power and beauty of blogging! :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!
