Yes, some of these friends are perfectly normal--thank you very much!-- and some are wacky as can be--Sneak on over to see what Mac Pike is up to in Uncle Mac's Garden Shed if you question me on that! While others are somewhere in between. It is, however, where they are all from that boggles the mind.
They are not all right here in good old Pennsylvania, just a hop, skip and a jump away like Julie Helms and her Wooly Acres. No, she's just the first one I've met in person...so far. I have come very close to meeting others, but just never got around to it...yet!

Where do these other pals hale from? All over! I can count as friends some as widely spread out as Oman--didn't even know it existed in the middle east until Mandy Dcosta came around with her Mandy's Pages website for writers-- Somerset, Great Britain where Charlotte Howard pens a novel or two while raising her two cutie little kids and then there's Chris West who makes me laugh-- mostly on Facebook--all the way from Tasmania.

And then there's Dan Shaw who happens to be the reason I wrote this post in the first place. Dan who writes The Poor Man's Guide to Survival became very interested in my recycled denim series I wrote for Self Reliance Works. He was so impressed in fact, that he decided I could do far more. He was so certain of my endless abilities that he told me a list of other useful items I could try to make out of old denim jeans. But he didn't just tell me. Oh, no! He went out of his way to actually send me three pairs of jeans which he sent his wife Beth to go buy at Good Will. He sent them with instructions on what to make out of them. Talk about Chutzpa!

Oh, and as for Dan's suggested denim projects, I'll be posting those on Craft Tuesdays. I love my readers!
