Sweet Pea

First dear friends I want to apologize...my mind has been spinning lately with to-do's and I have had no time to visit you,but I will,I promise,once I start catching up and managing my time a bit better.

I did have to stop by and tell you however, about the most amazing thing that happened to me.
I won a giveaway from Sweet Pea Studio..I know..very exciting,but when I received the email from Sandy saying that she wanted to make me something instead of giving me what was in the original giveaway,well,I became so excited!!! If you check out her work,you will see why I became so excited!!

When the package arrived I could hardly contain myself.Inside the box was the beautiful handmade pouch and stitched  in green thread was the word Love.
Inside the pouch cam the most amazing treasure..."Cats Baby" she called it..A resin doll molded from one of her own and a necklace filled with delicious stones and threads...Oh my..I was in love.




Thank you Sandy!! This necklace is so amazing and I am so thanful!!
