Her Little Friend -Paint Party Friday


This was a gift for my sweet young friend Emily, Christmas 2013.  It was one of the best Christmas celebrations ever--we had SO much fun.  I remember we gathered with Emily and family and laughed more than I had in years.  It was perfect--I will always treasure those memories.  It was the last time Alan and I were together at Christmas. I am SO grateful for that last wonderful holiday together.



Here is my model for this drawing.  Isn't she lovely?  I am so blessed to have this dear girl as my friend.  I've known Emily and her family since she was just a babe in arms.

Happy Paint Party Friday.  Have a lovely weekend, dear Friends and thank you for dropping by.  ((Hugs))
