Featured Artist Series- Day 2- Fran- Lady of Lost Times

Hey Bloggers!

Betcha thought I forgot my challenge already? No way, just had a visit from the wonderful Artedar which delayed my posting a bit. Dar and I had a great day creating. It is great to have a girlfriend who loves to art and lives fairly close:)

But I would be remiss if I did not take the opportinity to tell you about another girlfriend of mine.... Fran known to you as Ladyoflosttimes. I met Fran on Ustream, and then met her in person at the Art on the Ranger retreat. I am amazed by her, as she is primarily a knitter, crocheter, and an art journaler. 3 things I do not do very well. She taught a great book binding class at our retreat, and is extremely patient and creative in beading. Really, anything with an intricate pattern that seems impossible, Fran is your girl.
One of my favorite qualities about Fran is she has a marvelous spirit, is warm and open hearted, ( you know how we Jersey girls are), and her laugh fills a room. She makes me happy, happy, happy.

Here is where to find Fran:


Thank you Fran for reminding me to face my crafting challenges, when a pattern is too difficult, work through it! Thank you so much for your friendship and support.

Below is a tag I made for Fran:

Forgive the raccoon eyes, bad lighting, and grainy sleep lately, lamp broke and not my regular camera... long

Love ya Fran!
