Moxie Fab thanks! blog hop



If you were on a desert island (BTW - ain't that an oxymoron?) and could take only one blog with you - which would it be?  Well, it dawned on me after last week's Black Friday, that for me it would be Moxie Fab World.  And if ya take a gander at the number of paper crafters hopping today, it looks like it'd be one heckuva party on that island!

If you want to see the nearly 300 names on the blog hop list (thanks to Keren B, Taheerah A, and Virginia L for their hard work, BTW) head over to Moxie Fab World.  If you are hopping along, I hope you arrived from Lalo's blog

So why is this party so huge?  Well, for me, MFW is (was) kinda like Grand Central Station of Cardmakingland.  And the conductor extraordinaire, Ms. Cath Edvalson.  And there we were, all the little engines, "I think I can, I think I can."  And there she was telling us "you can do it", "here's how to do it", "here's someone who does it well" and then, if you were really lucky, "well done!"

I feel so lucky to have been "moulded" as a cardmaker by hanging out at the Moxie Fab World. And lucky to have met many who share my love of the craft.  I 'm already missing my daily dose of Ms. Cath's Moxie Fab World and I'll be forever grateful for the role it played in my cardmaking.

But mostly, I am looking forward to seeing whose world Ms. Cath is going to brighten next with her talents.

So Cath, the bottle is in the fridge.  The topper is yours.  All you have to do is show up to claim it. We'll share a couple Riesling spritzers out on the screened porch listening to Louis Armstrong's "What a Moxie Fab World" and discussing gallons, quarts and pints.  Hugs to ya, girlfriend.



Now, off to Laurie Schmidlin ya go...  Thanks for visiting.

Cath said...

Wouldn't THAT be fun? I would love to claim it, and meet you, and it would be incredibly, incredibly grand. Make that moxie fab. It would be incredibly, incredibly moxie fab.

Thank you, again, for your thoughtful words, Maria. I am so touched, more than mere words could ever say.

Thanks also, for the beautiful card you sent me in the mail. It is even more gorgeous in person, and I'm not sure how that could ever be possible. I will treasure it always.

I am still here, and we will always be friends. And as soon as I figure out what's next for me, you will be among the first to know.

All my love to you, my dear friend,
~Cath
