Face time with friends - OM [one moment] meetup #33

I just said goodbye to my friend, Cyn (RiverDog Prints), whom I just met in person after months of online blog and twitter conversations.  She was visiting from CT for the Craftland opening last night.  The party was great with a big crowd of people and lively shopping.  I also finally met Liz (Made in Lowell) face-to-face as well.  It's funny how we can recognize each other from our online avatars. Craftland is always a bright,cheery, happening kind of place.  It was energizing to be surrounded by talented people and their work.

We (me, Cyn, my friends Ann and Mandy from Studio Six) ended up at a nice, although loud, restaurant downtown where we enjoyed great food, sangria, and wonderful company.  Between laughter and yelling over the music, I thought about how lucky I was to be out on the town with smart, talented, and all around great women.  Friendships are good for the soul.  Thank you, ladies!

om [one moment] meet upOM is a weekly meet up that promotes living in the moment.  Whether funny, sad, ridiculous, or banal, actively looking for and sharing these moments will promote balance in our lives.

  1. Wonderful to see you two in real life! I agree about how wonderful it is to be out with the crafterati, definitely reinvigorating especially at this hectic time of year.

  2. Happy that you all had a great time - wish I could have made it. It would have been nice to meet Cyn from CT since I used to live so close to her.

  3. Hooray! So glad you had a great time! How awesome to find like souls online that you can meet in real life too!

  4. A most excellent night! So happy to meet all the crafty and RI-folk. And was excited to be able to hold the crafts in my hand (Liz's creations are awesome!)

    Thanks so much for being a great host, Linda!

  5. Friendships are good for the soul, well said!

    Often 'friend time' doesn't make it to the top of one's priority list, but it is so important. That's why it's part of my new year's resolution!
