On Ebay, I belong to a group of the sweetest ladies ever. I don't know what I would do without each sweet lady in there to brighten my every day. Each one adds a bit of dimension to my life and I am so truly grateful for the friendships I have made with each lady there. As you know I have been ill for a little over a year now. Every single day, they are there to encourage, lift me up, pray for me, and laugh at my silliness. One special friend is Katie. She is a sweet chick, who has a heart as big as none I have seen, and is a fierce chick. She kicks our b*tts when we need it. lol !! Katie is always sending me a little something. I never am expecting it, it just arrives in my mailbox on a day when it seems I really need it. She just had a Birthday ( well , a few months ago, lol , I AM SLOWWWWWWW , lol ) and she just got her very first Grandbaby and had surgery all in one month. Wow, so I sent her a few doo dads, She is redoing her home in pinks and aqua's and blues, so I made her a Pink Petal cake box, and a few little trinkets to match her decor.
The pretty plate and nest will look sweet in her new blue bedroom, and I couldn't resist pink initials for her and her husband. :)
These pretty tins had sweet birds and pink roses, two things Katie loves, so I was overjoyed when I found them. :)
She is our Master Gardener as well, and knew when I found this book it would be going to her. It has just about every single rose in there, as well as rose growing tips. I painted the cover a soft white and added wallpaper, ribbons and a rhinestone button. I think it turned out really pretty and will look great on a coffee table.
She received her package yesterday, and liked it !! :) Yay !! So, Happy Birthday, Get well Soon, Congratulations on the new Grandbaby and Merry Christmas Katie!! lol !!!
Next is Miss Bertie......... She is one of the busiest ladies I know, and yet always cheerful. She has a voice like an Angel and Blesses Our Lord with it Every Sunday morning in Choir. :) We threw Katie an online baby shower and had games and prizes. Well, several months later, lol I am just now finishing the prizes that Bertie won. lol !! Hers is just a peek, as it is on the way to her house and hasn't arrived yet. So, I am not going to show all the goodies.
I painted this old sweet verse book for her. It is so pretty on the inside, filled with scripture. I hope she likes it. :)
And I found a spoon with a "B" on it. lol !! I am sure she doesn't Need a spoon with a "B on it, but she is getting one. lol !!! Also, an old hankie with a " B" on it. :) For Sweet Bertie. :)
Next is Sharon, she also was a winner at the baby shower games. She is easy for me. If it is Aqua, then I am pretty sure she will like it. :) She sent me some awesomely cute stuff for our Easter swap, of which I still have to show pictures of. One of the things she sent broke in the mail, so I want to repair it before I show it, as it is the cutest thing EVER !!! Anyways, here are a few goodies for Sharon. Hope she likes them. :)
I have four more packages I am putting together to go out on Friday. Cant wait till everyone gets them !! It makes my heart swell inside. :) So, that is what I am up to this week. :) See ya Saturday !!!
