Framed Art for a Friend

Hello Peeps!!

Today I am sharing a framed piece that I made for a friend/co-worker who is making a big change in her life.
She is moving across country and I am sure going to miss her.

You know how there are some people who come into your life and make a big impact?  
                 Lynn is one of those people for me.
 She can just make you feel better when you are around her, she is one of those people who make you a want to be a better person.
She is a person I have great respect for, She had been through a lot in her life, from losing her husband to losing everything in that horrible tornado that came through Joplin a few years back and changed how most people in this area look at life.
I was saddened when she said she was leaving but I know she needs to follow where her heart is leading her.
I wanted to make her something, something that she would love and something that would bring her some joy.
Then I remembered THIS item that I saw a few years back on Becca Feeken's blog
I loved the piece she hand made and back then, I think it was in 2010, I ordered the stamp sentiment from Queitfire Designs and had gotten a bunch of the heart pins from Wal Mart and they had been just hanging out in my stash every since.
Now was the time to pull them out.

Hubby built the frame for me.

Don't you love that quote:

  1. When you come to the end of all the light you know, and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on or you will be taught to fly.

Lynn is a women of deep faith and I know she will be fine.
I will miss her and I am glad for social media we have today so I can keep up with her.
Best of luck to you my sweet friend. 
You will be missed!
