A very dear old friend of mine is going through a rough period. She just moved back to California from Boston for a new job and her mom's been in the hospital recovering from a stroke. We use to work together, were also roomates and she was my first crafting buddy and maid of honor. I can't go see her so I'm sending this to her. Sort of a protrait of us with our cats doing what we use to love to do back in the day. We were both makeup artists and after a long day we would go dancing at a place called the Oasis. I thought she could use an oasis right now. (She hasn't seen this blog so it'll be a surprise!)
