First of all, thank you all so much for the wonderful and sweet comments on my potential leap of faith! I truly appreciate the friendship and support of each and every one of you. You guys really allow me to believe in myself. So from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
Now I want to share some recent gifts I have received from my friends!
Ali was working on a wall of frames recently, and I sent her a couple of frames to help. To thank me, she told me to pick anything from her shop! I pretty much love everything, so I narrowed it down to 4 or 5 necklaces, and told her to choose. I was thrilled when I got this one in the mail…
It’s an adorable quatrefoil necklace! And the quote that is on the card it comes on says “Friendship: Love, Honesty, Trust, Loyalty”. Ali and I have become such close friends that she felt it was the most appropriate, and I was thrilled because it was the one I was secretly hoping for! But I felt weird asking directly for the friendship necklace. 😉 I am looking forward to seeing Ali in person this September!
Secondly, Allison of Fab Rehab creations was at a sale and saw something that made her thing of me, so she picked it up and sent it to me! Wanna see?
It is an original picture called “owlet”! I love that it is called “owlet”. So cute!!! With a potential move on the brink, I haven’t framed it yet, but it will happily hang in my (hopefully!) new home!
Go say hi to Allison today to see her awesome latest creation…. Here is the before, now what til you see what she did with it! It involves one of my favorite colors!
Lastly, I picked up something for my pal Renee at Hobby Lobby last week that she had needed for her crafts. She picked it up from me, and forgot to bring the money for it, so she mailed it to me. And in the envelope was a sweet surprise! Renee makes magnets from vintage jewelry and I was so excited to find this little magnet in my envelope!
Sorry my picture didn’t come out that great, but he is silver and purple and darn cute!
Thank you so much, friends, for all the lovely gifts!!!
And finally, onto the giveaway! My friend Andi, aka Jane of All Crafts, is having a birthday extravaganza this week to celebrate her birthday!!! She is 2 months older than me, by the way. Just sayin’. Today, I am over there giving away a vintage fabric bunting! Head on over, follow the rules, and enter!!!! Good Luck!
