Wow! Nie Nie has brought an early Christmas to me

Do you read the Nie Nie Dialogues? I do. Stephanie Nielson is an inspiration to me. A few weeks ago she announced she was looking for handmade goodies to feature on her blog this week. Last Friday she announced she had gotten HUNDREDS of submissions.

Imagine my surprise when I read her blog this morning and see this:

I then checked my ETSY shop and found that the shelves were almost bare! I’ve quickly restocked with a few corsages and am now going to elf myself into making a few more.

Joy to the World and Happy Birthday Mom! (Read explanation one post below)

I created the reindeer tag using an image from Keren at Free Pretty Things For You.

Blessings galore to adore, Laura.

It was such a BEAUTIFUL pleasure to meet you in person. You are always so lifting & your precious prayer left me with tears in my eyes ... you are such an inspiration to us all, Laura. Thank you for your lovely friendship. Next time I will make sure you get dessert & I'll share it with you ... chuckle! These moments we briefly shared are heartfelt & treasured, sweet friend.

Have a beautiful winter's eve ~

PS BTW ~ So love the picture of Mother ... I sure do remember those fur collars/dickies ... I was sooo allergic to them but loved wearing them.

Huggers of love, Marydon
