I used to drive my family crazy
talking about my blog friends
that none of them knew.
They got used to that
and have even had opportunity to
meet some of you in real life.
So, that is now the norm at our home.
In March I opened a shop on
Etsy, an online marketplace for things
that are handcrafted.
One of the first things I did upon
opening this shop was to join a team
of individuals who hold to similar beliefs that
I hold dear.
That of loving the Lord and trusting
in Jesus for our salvation.
We leave the controversial stuff alone
and agree on the important stuff.
I have met many, many amazing
artists here and am blessed to
have acquired another circle of
As "Friendship Ambassador to the World"
nothing could please me more, really.
Well before Christmas rolled around many of
us decided we'd like to do a gift exchange.
So, the secret sister plan was activated.
When my gifts came in the mail
I ripped into them that very day.
I know a lot of the participants waited
patiently for Christmas.
It never occurred to me to wait.
I was so curious to see who my secret sister was
and what she had sent.
These are the treasures that
Zuda Gay sent.
Zuda Gay sent.
An ornament embellished with a clay polymer
which when inserted over a white light
on the tree looks truly stunning.
Don't you love it?
Zuda Gay also sent a couple
dish or face cloths.
They are soooo soft.
I'd been perusing sites thinking
of getting myself some.
These are just perfect.
but definitely not least....
What I am considering a bookmark.
I'm not sure if this is its intended purpose
but I have decided that it would go well in
a Bible because it has multiple strands and
I can keep up with Pastor Mike better if
I can keep several passages marked.
Jonathan looked at the craftmanship
on this clay flower and was totally impressed.
He has done clay sculpting and said that
what Zuda Gay does with the flowers is
I would agree.....
Thanks, Zuda Gay.
I am so grateful.
To see more of Zuda's lovely
work just visit her Etsy shop
You'll be so glad you did.
