Girlfriends and chocolate just go together



Had a lovely couple of hours this afternoon with two girlfriends sharing a chat and a plateful of chocolate bickies and slice. These two friends are always there, even if we don't meet often we know that we can help each other out whenever help is needed. We thought it was good idea to get together before Christmas overtook us and we really needed time together. We exchanged some little birthday and Christmas gifts which are always so thoughtfully chosen for each other. This week I whipped up another set of Criss Cross Coasters to go with a lovely patterned cake plate and the decor of one friends living area. The journals and cover pen and pencil thingies were given to encourage the girls to doodle about their crafting ideas, recipes or whatever. The idea for making the 'thingies' came from a new blogging friend Vera at freehand sketching who is a fabulous photographer and has a gorgeous grey cat if you take a look at her very relaxing blog.

Whatever you do in life, make time for friends and take the time to enjoy their company and what they can add to your life. My friends give me release from my busy and sometimes humdrum life. Time spent with friends is never wasted time!

What gorgeous gifts you've made for your friends... Also, what wonderful advice!! I think that in todays society it's so easy to get caught up in it all that you tend to forget to appreciate just how important true friends really are....
