Sometimes in life you just get lucky, and God blesses you with a person like this:

Meet my sweet friend Gilly (aka Gillian) whom I love and adore…

And when I say “friend” I mean long lost soul sister because we swear we were separated at birth.
Ya know, if we had been born the same day and year and all that.
Which we weren’t (same month though, sag’s unite!)….but still….
It’s crazy how similar we are.
Lovers of:
organic (on non pizza days)
talking about poop
pete yorn
bright colors
forever 21
thrift stores
vintage furniture
reality tv
chunky jewelry
sweets and chocolate
Non lovers of:
whiny kids
grumpy husbands
{can i get a whut whut?!?}
And while I won’t go on and on about all the ways she makes me happy, I will go on and on about all the ways she makes me crafty.
Take a look at all she’s taught me so far….

Kind of fun, ya?
You should also see the cute little hair clips she just busted out for Chloe out of nowhere…
{too lazy to snap pictures at the moment, but i will}
Now normally I’m not the crafting type, as I’d rather pay someone to make me handcrafted things…
but I guess that’s when you know you found someone special.
You know….when they make you crafty.
I just have to draw the line at scrapbooking.
I tried it once…and I got kicked out of the club.

I’ll stick to felt flowers.
