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~

I have just read your lovely guest post! All four houses have something special!
We live in our third house and went from large to very small

But you are right about the cleaning:)I have less to clean and more time to paint:)

This is one of the best parts about blogging...connecting with many wonderful kindred spirits!

Isn't it amazing how technology has brought people into our lives, we would never meet otherwise. I have some dear friends, who I have never met in person, yet, though feel like we have known each other for years. Pretty cool!

Lovely post! And I believe you are right, it's not the brick and morter that make a house grand. Have a wonderful week:)

I never understood the whole "pen pal" thing that my grandmother did until I met some of my best friends through blogging- most of them I have never met, but they are very good friends just the same....
