Today is my bestie's (aka best friend) birthday. Kristi (kstar) means the world to me!!! AND the world to whiskerbeans. She has also been there to support me and be inspiration for my stuffies. Did you know that my owlies were inspired by an owl drawing that I had done for her house in Nashville? When kstar was diagnosed with lung cancer (www.kstar76.blogspot.com), I made her a little star stuffie (mainly in her favorite colors, purple, magenta and teal). She also wrote a theme song for a gnome (not sure if the gnome stuffie pattern came before or AFTER the song…hmmm…). It goes something like "Gnome, gnome, mommy I want a gnome! Can I take the little gnome home?"
Kstar and I share a common love for the blogger Heidi Kenney of mypapercrane. The lucky little stinker got to meet her last year without me, but got me some cool "HK" swag. A little gnome and gnomey fabric (as pictured). Hopefully someday we will be able to see HK together.
Also pictured is us enjoying our Yummy keychains (created by Heidi and produced by Kidrobot). Kristi's croissant makes little alien slurping noises when it * crawls *. Doesn't it look like a little alien?
Kristi was able to hang out last year when I had my first craft show at her parent's church bazaar. Like I said, she has always been there to support me and one of the few that encourage and fully support the dream.
I am not great at expressing myself or my thoughts and hold too much in. I am not sure how to express how much this girl means to me, but thought a blog post might be appropriate to wish her the best-est of birthdays!!!
I LOVE EWE, kstar! You mean the world to me!
