Online Friends

Lana and I met a few years ago in an Ebay group. It was my first experience of being in a selling group online, and Lana was my mentor, still is! We became friends and starting IMing online as well....and we still do.....just about everyday.

About a year and a half ago, I had the pleasure of meeting her in person. I flew to her home in Tennessee from my home in Idaho! She is such a sweet and dear person and staying with her family was like being at home.....or at least like visiting family. Since we are both "starving artist" that trip was a gift from my parents, but I hope someday she will come to visit me. Until then, we do have our daily IMing!

Lana has invited me to share on her blog as a guest this week. She is featuring guest bloggers as well as guest artist in weekly updates. Please visit her blog for my guest post about all the houses we've lived in, and check out her first guest artist too!

Have a great weekend~
