Life Long Friends

I know that most of you will agree and know exactly what I am talking about. I have been on line since 1996. Over the last 13 years I have met some of the most extraordinary people. Until recently I lived in North Idaho, in a small town high in the mountains, with a population of 800. I do believe that included the cats and dogs. LOL. If it were not for cyber friends I just might have gone crazy. (ssshhh crazier than I already am) Some of these unseen comrades have been in my life for 10 or more years living all over the world. For me the Internet and cyber friends have been the main stay of my life. I feel connected not only to people but to places as well. However, over the last few years I have been involved with a group of incredible women from my etsy team, Artisan Beaders Street Team "absteam". Right now there are 17 of us who have banned together to become not only team members but good friends. All of them are the finest artists in their fields and bring to the art world a passion that shows in every piece they create. They make me laugh, and bring joy to my world. We have all shared the most intimate secrets and have held strong when times seemed impossible. We even shared the passing of one of our dear members a few short months ago. We are a TEAM of women who have come together through cyberspace and time to form this bond that I know will last a life time. You many know some of these fine ladies, if not allow me to introduce them to you. The Internet, it can be a very good thing.

Bead with Honor and Integrity

I am sorry I had to put a word verification for my comments due to the unsightly spam comments against women. Please take the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you.
