I O U some thank you’s!
First of all, I need to say thanks for some of the awesome Christmas gifts I received…..
Many of you know that one of my very best friends is Andi from Jane of All Crafts. The blog name completely suits her, because she made me all sorts of fun goodies for Christmas!
She made me a silver and pink sequins Christmas bulbs… (sorry it is rainy today and gray, but you can see better pics here!)
She crafted this awesome bookmark (we share a passion for reading)….
and these fun clay sand dollar magnets because I have a history with sand dollars. 😉
and made me this lavender stamped soap…
Sawyer received his own bug soap…
And this bug lampshade… Oh wait, that’s a real stink bug on my lampshade.
Thank you so much, Andi, for lots of crafty goodness!
I also received a fabulous gift from one of my other very best friends who does not have a blog. Jenni is born and raised in Louisiana. We met in November of 2002 when we had just moved to Louisiana. I was engaged one month later, and one month after that I asked Jenni to be in my wedding, saying something like, “I know we just met, but I know that you and I are going to be very good friends.”. Almost ten years later and she is still one of my best friends, and even Sawyer’s Godmother, and the thing I miss most in Louisiana, even more than the food. 😉
Anyhow, she was married in 2009, and her husband is a handyman above all. For Christmas, she had an idea, and he put it into action. And this picture is what I received….
Oh but wait, there is more! This is a two for one! Check out what it can do….
The picture insert slides out, and can be flipper over to hang showing this on the other side!
How cool is that? You are jealous, and that’s ok. I would be, too. I have the craftiest and most caring friends!
And finally, I was the very first customer for my Anita who just opened her very own etsy shop!!!! Here is her shop banner, just click on it to get to her shop!
Anita has awesome vintage finds at great prices! I purchased some rice sacks to make pillows with….
Won’t these make awesome pillows? I just love the blue rose!
And she was so sweet and included an adorable Lavender quilted heart. My mail lady actually asked me if my package was what was smelling so nice in her car. I sniffed the box and confirmed for her!
You need to check out Anita’s shop! Here are some of her other in store items:
Thank you to all my wonderful friends! Happy Hump Day!
