What is G.F.? Short for Girl Friend? Maybe. Good Food? Great Find? Got Fries? Gab Fest? Try this: Get Factor. Isn't it cool when you know someone Gets you? Don't you love when someone says You'll Love This, and you do? It doesn't have to be related to things you receive, it's about so much more than that. It's when your people know you are passionate about something, and they feed you by sharing information, by sharing enthusiasm, by acknowledging your YOUness.
I want to share a few recent arrivals. This just in from Julie. It's not even December and like a child I ripped open the lovely package. You've seen it before: page 43 of Sept/Oct Somerset Studio. Isn't it dreamy? I am so lucky to have five pieces of art by Julie. She is my idol, my mentor, my dear friend. I keep moving it from room to room to see where she'll be most at home. I adored it when I got a sneak peek for the article. She KNEW I'd spaz when it got here. Love it, thanks Julie!
Judi took a swoon-worthy voyage to Paris and London. She came back bearing gifts. Gold, frankincense and muhr? No. Curd, clip, and dirt. I'll take THAT, thanks! She got me dirt, can you stand it?
And how is this for clever? Judy blew my mind with these....and she spray painted the package, almost too good to open but when it has Judy's return address on it I know that contents will be even better! Won't those tabs be perfect in my HIMnal? What you don't know what that is? Scroll down a few posts. You can barely see it but the brads she uses to hold the tags in place spell H I M.
This arrived yesterday. If I hadn't spent the day pampering myself I might have run off to the framer. I had to dye my hair, and try my new eyeliner. Have you ever used the liquid stuff? I hadn't until today and wanted to make sure I didn't become a raccoon within a few hours. I'm liking it. May use it tomorrow night. I think I'm all ready now. Palpitating Heart.
I KNOW I'll have a good weekend. Hope you do too. And if you're still making out your gift list, be sure to remember the GET Factor. Be clever and creative and make your selections so that your gift recipients know you Get them.
