I'm playing catch up with things that have weighed heavy on my mind. I am so thankful for my family and friends… and what better way to share my thanks is to make a post just about them?
Terry my BFF from Murry Bergtraum High School, NYC, NY Graduating Class of 1982 – and I have been recently reunited… It was a Blast from the past, and a blessing!
We have plans to get together in early December, but she just couldn't wait to give me her homemade gift so she mailed it to me…
This is where the story begins…
One November Day, my mail-lady left a box outside my door. Wow, what a surprise, what could this be, I asked myself? Oh goody, it's from Terry.
I opened the box… to find… a beautiful personalized Shopping bag… As you can see, I was not the only one curious as to what was in this bag! Sammy & Billy were hoping for bones… as for me – not so much :)
Here I'm trying to take a photo of the back of this beautiful bag but someone (Billy) was having a hard time waiting for me to open my birthday gift! If he could talk, I'm sure he would have said something like, "Mommy, would you p-l-e-a-s-e put the camera down and open up your gift, I bark you, I mean beg you.."
Here is what the side panels looked like 🙂
Of course, I followed protocol opening up the card first… OMG, it was an I Love Lucy Talking and Singing card… which drove Billy NUTS!!! It was so FUNNY!!!
It was a beautiful November day, that is why my door was open. I put my card down in front of the door for Billy to check out closer - he was SO memorized by the 'chatter' the card was making… What a priceless memory!
Okay, okay, I'm getting to it, and my fabulous handmade gift which I will treasure forever is this:
Terry needle points beautifully, and found a perfect glass frame to show case her work of art!
Thank you from the bottle of my heart, my dear friend!
I'ld like to 'Shout Out' to Mary for the awesome Birthday cookies I 'had' to share with Ann… as we made the Trick or Treat project. tee hee
Yum Yum, were they delicious!
Note To Mary: Hey Mary, Ann will be on a farm in the midwest drinking wild turkey, oops I mean eating wild turkey… can you make these chocolate chip cookies again? We won't have to share with Ann this time.. (big evil grin… na na na na…)
Another 'Shout Out' is to Kristi for my Witches Broom (I'm saving gas money which = more money for STAMPS & ACCESSORIES from the Occasional Mini!!!!) & my Goody bag.
Kristi taught her son's first grade class how to make Green Friendly transportation as a Class Mom for this month's craft project! She LOVES her Big Shot, notice she used her Top Note Die, as a topper for her goody bags. I know she'd be upset if I did not point that out.. She is so darn creative, I just love her to death… :) She was my First BS Customer… tee hee
A few more 'Shout Outs' but sorry no photos, to Lisa - I love my beautiful Note pad holder which is sitting on my desk - to Stacy for my fabulous to die for Etienne Aligner Wallet – to Ann for my Kitchen Appliance & Personalized note pads, my darling husband for my Sony READER - and for all my other wonderful gifts & email messages I've received from family & friends… Except that BD card from my Brother-In-Law Scott, that was just plain YUCKIE!!! A little blond girl picking her nose… that is so NOT me! But hey, he's an 'in law' what do you expect… LOL
So once again, Belated Thank you's from me to you all!
