Some of you may not know but I used to have a proper job, before I started Funky Hand ! Infact I've had a number of 'proper' jobs over the years! One of my favourite times was working in the centre of Newcastle in the late nineties for a recruitment agency as a consultant, recruiting permanent members of staff for various businesses around the area. I don't really remember it that fondly for the actual job but for the fantastic group of girls I worked with. We were friends much more than just work colleagues. Anyway, you know how things go, you leave, everyone moves on..you lose touch and before you know it, it's been years since you have seen them. I'm sure you can all understand and have experienced that in your lives.
Anyway, through the joy that is FaceBook I have got back in touch after about six years with my old Manager from those days Heather. On Friday she popped into Teapot Studios to see our little set up and catch up on what I'm actually up to. Heather is running her own marketing business called Marketing Geni now and as a little fun sideline she also makes cup cakes! Thankfully she brought a sample of them for me with her!!
It was so wonderful to meet up with an old friend and even though the years had gone by and so much had happened in those years to us both, it was just like we had seen each other yesterday! I know this post isn't about crafting today but I just wanted to share with you how pleased I was to see Heather again and how much it made me realise that true friends are always there for you, even if you don't see them everyday. So, this week think about someone who was special to you in the past and you haven't seen for ages and make the decision to get intouch with them again. I have to say I really think it's true that you can't have too many friends..expecially if they make really yummy sparkly cupcakes!!
I'm working on new paper designs for another CD release in the new year and Corrina and I are getting very excited about a number of other crafty projects that we have coming together at the moment. So, as usual, it's all go in Teapot Studios!
I hope your weekend has been great fun and I'll speak to you again very soon.
