Prezzies In My Mailbox!

After a long Monday at work, I dropped off a couple bills on my way home from work, then stopped out in front of my house to check the mail. Was I surprised at what I found inside!! A package from my friend Carla in Alabama! Oh my! What is this, I wondered?!
A card and two prezzies!Carla made this adorable little crocheted cupcake pin cushion topped with 'candy' beads, (looks good enough to eat!), sent me a cute little pin cushion shelf sitter, and a beautiful handwritten card. Thank you so much, Carla! I will treasure them, and think of you when I look at them. I have enjoyed 'meeting' you too, and I cherish your friendship. Thank you, Carla, for brightening up my day!

Father,
Continue to teach me by your example that friendship requires love, attention, and an open heart. Open my heart to love others more fully, reaching out to others and nurturing the long-term friendships You have placed in my life. You are the greatest Friend of all and therefore, I know I can trust You to guide me as I learn to be a better friend to those You have placed in my life.
Amen

Nice Goodies!!!! You really deserve them. Carla is such a sweetie, isn't she??? She made me one of those cute little cupcakes during our swap!!! I love it, I think it is just too cute to stick pins in. I love your shelf sitter!!! I have one that is a thread spool that she sent a while back!!!! She is such a nice lady and does such beautiful work!!!!

such cute goodies you received. Getting presents is always great for both the giver and the receiver....usually ... I have grandkids (not all) but some that absolutely will not acknowledge a gift...which I think the gift giving is coming to a halt ...I had better shut up and get off my soap box.

Hi Michelle,
Sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Regarding the yo-yo lollipops, they are just two yo-yo's with a lillipop stick glued in the center. You can find the lollipop sticks wherever they sell candy making supplies.
I've enjoyed browsing your blog. Lot's of enjoyable reading.
Take care.
Aloha!

I also love to sew and I'm watching for a really cute pincushion, so these caught my eye! What a nice friend -- love the card, too.
