|So, the little gingerbread house taking centre stage on my blog this evening?|
A wonderful handmade surprise gift to me from one of my lovely customers...
|A lady that calls in regularly, often with one, or all three of her delightful daughters, made the sweet confection as a 'thank you'.|
|I just wanted to share her beautiful creation here on my blog and to take a minute to count my blessings.|
|As I am sat here writing this post, I have just received a lovely email from Krissie who recently purchased one of my fairy dolls called Marshmallow, and two of my calendars. |
I have permission from Krissie to quote her email here:
"Mum is in love with Marshmallow! she said she is perfect and loves her little details and has cooed over her name too! thank you again!...
She called me late last night and said have you got your calender to hand? i went upstairs and laid on the bed and we flipped through every page discussing every beautiful thing on the pages while chatting away on the phone and she tells me what she especially loves on May or June and then she asks me 'if you could have one thing on this page what would it be?' and then she guesses for me.
It really is a special time when we do this, something just between us both and your calenders have become a part of our wintry traditions for me and Mum,She looks so forward to getting her new one each year and on the first of every month she will phone me early and she says 'ooooh have you seen January?'
I am sure i have told you all this before but i know you put a lot of hard work in to all you do so i think you should be be told how special your handmade delights are and how much me and Mum love our Nostalgia Calenders and all your handmade bits and bobs that we are lucky enough to have."
|Yes, I am lucky indeed.|
Thank you to all who continue to buy from me at my shop, at the fairs or on-line, and email support and keep in touch - You make all the hard work worthwhile.
