I made this banner for Pam of Frippery for her birthday. Her birthday is today, April 18th.

I met Pam and her husband Joe Receipts last year in Omaha at Silver Bella.

I had never been, she had never been and I was in the right place at the right time as I sat beside her. She was in my very  first class. Her smile lit up the room and I felt like I had known her forever.

By that night, we were at the hotel bar kicking it up and we just "connected". Her husband is such a sweetie and just joined right in with us girls.

They spoke proudly of their 2 beautiful children~

By the second night, we shopped and had dinner. We talked about family, work, travels and politics...and we still remained friends ;)


I'll be seeing Pam again at Silver Bella in November. I hope to have drinks at the bar and have dinner with her again. I hope to shop with her at Second Chance Antiques and be jealous of the things she found before I did. I hope to be lucky enough to sit beside her in class again.

I am forever thankful of being at the right place at the right time!

Wow have you been busy! I love the banner, and the story that goes with it is great although it sounds like you might be having too much fun at Silver Bella you might need some adult supervision ( I am much older, don't know about wiser but older). Maybe next year so try to behave (NOT) this year:_)

Jodie, Thank you thank you thank you again! You know I adore my banner. Every time I look at it I think of you and all the fun we are going to have at SB (if not before). BTW There was no sewing on the cornices I made. all staples and no sew glue, smoke and mirrors my dear! Anyone could make them. Love you, Pam

What's not to love...a gift straight from the heart to the heart!
I am so jealous that you two actually got to meet and know one another. Getting to meet you both is my secret ambition.
