Hi, all! Before I jump into this post, I must say something that has been gnawing at me for some time now. I don't usually like to share gift posts because I don't want anyone to feel like they come off as braggy. This is something that a very scant amount of people in the wax community have put into my head based on Facebook conversations from the past in wax groups over the years, conversations with friends, and, well, in my own mind. This post is about a gift I received for Christmas, so if you don't want to hear about it, please scroll on by this post. This gift is too wonderful not to post about and I want to share it with you today, even though it has nothing to do with wax.
This post is a long, overdue one. My friend Julie from The Redolent Mermaid offered to make me a lap quilt for Christmas. Initially, I felt bad saying yes and asking her to undertake something that to me, someone who has no crafting senses and/or talent in crafts, looked so difficult to make! She insisted, so I agreed, and she asked me what I liked. I told her rainbows, which is vague but they are my favorite, LOL. This is what she made me.
I cannot express how grateful I am that she gifted this to me and used not only her time, but her tremendous, incredible crafting abilities and her hard earned money on fabrics for this gift. I am still in awe every single time I use it. Thank you again, Julie, from the bottom of my heart. I am so very privileged to know you, with or without wax. :)
Julie, again, thank you so much for thinking of me and for offering to make me something so creative and cool. I will cherish it forever!! <3 <3 <3
