I take part in a Canadian buy n sell thread on Etsy. It is a wonderful meeting place for artisans from not only across our own country but from various other countries around the world. The artisans on this thread have become family, we are all there to support each other not only in our work, but in our lives.
It was here on the thread that I met Emily of Emmsgems. Emily and her husband Jason came from Winnipeg, to stay with us this past weekend. I will admit, I was a little apprehensive meeting strangers. Strangers in real life, but not strangers really. We have chatted in the thread and by convo many many many times. I told her as we were planning their visit, that if I rented them a motel room, she would know we were not well matched, in personality. I was kidding, well kind of. She didn't have to worry, they are wonderful people, comfy, felt like we had know them both for ages. I hope they felt, feel the same way.
Emily realized Terrace Bay is not Winnipeg, she needed to dress warmer.
