Gifts Made from the Heart!

Hi Everyone--
I have created some pieces for the holiday season--
one is for a "Christmas Day" giveaway (garland
pictured above) and the others are in my Etsy shop.

Yesterday I received the biggest surprise in the mail.
It was an adorable wallet from my friend Donnie and
her husband. It was made by a woman named Teresa.
She sells all kinds of handmade goodness in her Etsy shop
and every piece was created to help us organize
our purses! Thank you so much, Don and Donnie!

If you would like to visit Teresa's shop, it is here.

My friend Linda has simply gorgeous
items in her shop too! Here are 2 of her
handcrafted Christmas stockings. Not
only does she sew them, she is an expert
at calligraphy too. Her work is
spectacular and as you can see, her
stockings tell a story...Wouldn't
anyone just love these?

Her stockings are items that can be treasured for years to
come! To reach Linda's blog, click here. The link to
her Etsy store is on her right side bar. Once there,
you can read about these in detail.

And I just couldn't pass up the chance to show you this
amazing mantel transformation by Sharon. Isn't
it awesome?

(If you remember, Sharon is the artist who paints the
incredible portraits I shared a few days ago, but her talent
spreads throughout her entire house!) To reach Sharon's blog,
just go here. Sharon has an Etsy shop too and I
know you'd love browsing through it. It's called
"Sweetie Pies" and it's on her right side bar.

I think of what this season means and how Christmas holds
so many memories for all of us. What better way to say
"Merry Christmas" than with pieces that were made
by some very special women whose love goes into
each stitch or drop of glue?


  1. Wow Cindy! You must be almost burned out. Or maybe you are sharing energy with the Energizer Bunny. Wonderful Creations. I wish you a wonderful Christmas. I probably won't be blogging now till after New Years. I may change my mind, but right now I have way too much to do.
    Hugs, Chris

  2. I emailed you most of my response but I hope everyone will go look at Teresa's shoppe. She is so talented but now you know how cheap she't tell you I spent a fortune now. Thanks Cindy.

  3. nice, nice post. Love the stockings and the last picture really is gorgeous!
    Merry Christmas,

  4. Cindy, I'm honored to be included in your post. Thank you. I popped over to see Teresa's shop, she does have lots of really cute things. Sharon's mantel is gorgeous, I love the window theme and looking through the windows to see the treasures she placed behind them. Your banners and tussies mussies are beautiful. I can't wait until mine arrives in the mail. Thanks for all you do.

  5. Another lovely post! I'm back in the land of the living and feeling like myself again. It's good to visit you!

  6. Wow Cindy you've done it again girlfriend! I checked out Sharon's blog and lo and behold she's practically a next door neighbor. Actually she lives in Harrison which is 30 min. or so from where I live.I actually have some of my Gourd Art in the Oak Leaf Gallery in Harrison. I'm a member of the Harrison Art League. You never know how you'll touch someone else's life do you?

    Hugs XX
