I want to thank Lucy McClure of bel monili for featuring me today in her blog's "31 days, 31 friends" series. I wrote an article about McClure back in October 2011 when her flower pins were featured in the Daytime Emmy Awards grab bags. One of the reasons I love freelance writing is because I get to meet extremely talented and interesting people, like Lucy. (Of course, a shout out to my dear friend Carrie Nardini of I Made It! for introducing us.) I look forward to the stories and people that come my way in 2012!
