One day while she was here we met for the day and she wanted to go to Viva Las Vegas Stamps...sort of a landmark here. A lot of locals and tourists go to this shop as it has more stamps than there are stars...seriously. We had a great time there and then went to lunch afterwards.....
While we were having lunch, Kristin presented me with a gift she had made for me. I was not only surprised by her lovely gesture but upon opening it I was deeply touched....she had taken a photo of the heart that I had created and made an absolutely beautiful charm out of it on a necklace! She remarked "I know that you donated the heart to St.Jude's, but wanted you to have it with you forever". Seriously, I thought I was going to cry....I don't think I have ever been so touched by anything that someone has made for me!
On the other side is this touching quote by George Sand....how perfect a quote is that for this piece?! I will treasure this forever and thank you again Kristin, from the bottom of my heart, I will treasure it always. Not only is Kristin Hubick a great shop owner, but a very talented artist in her own right, and I am so glad we have become friends!
I will be posting again as the class begins to share my experiences with you all....wish me luck and I am so excited and very grateful for this experience that I know will prove to be wonderful!
