improving thanks to the generosity of a friend

I know how very lucky I am to have some people in my life, take for instance Rae Cooper...owner of Scrap Matrix. I had begun work on the hat a few months ago before the disruption of moving house and Rae had seen the pics I had posted on Facebook, she asked if she could send some things for the hat...I received more than I had expected and the pieces were all so interesting and ideal for the project which is now complete and perfect thanks to a lady who has never met me but just wanted to do something nice. I hope to one day meet her and say thanks in person...and hand the hat over to her as a gift of friendship.

I met Rae Cooper several years back while taking a clas at BPS...she is awesome and always supportive of other artists. She send me product all the way to the states ;) Little did we know that we would end up creating on the same Helmar design team. I saw this hat on FB and it took my breath away...love seeing close-up pictures!
