Happy New Year & Happy Mail

Hi Everyone! I had hoped to wish everyone a Merry Christmas before Christmas, but as we all know, life sometimes gets in the way.  Even in a good way.  A last minute change of plans left me with little time to wrap presents, clean, bake, visit everyone and make a blog post.  I was determined to remain stress-free and to remember the really important things, like my family and friends.

I received a very special card and gift from my friend Stacy of MagicLoveCrow

Stacy knows that I had been admiring the etched stones made by Deb of Geckostone on Etsy, and that due to other demands, Deb had put her shop on hiatus.  So she bugged asked her nicely to make me one as a gift, and she did.
Deb has a blog where you can see some of her wonderful art. She put so much skill and love into the stone, and I really love it.  Of course, she added a moose for me! I will treasure it always.

Stacy also gave me an adorable moose charm.  It is a little metal medallion that says "Live Large" on the reverse side.
I will have to come up with a special beaded project to show off both sides of this charm.

Thank you so much, Stacy (and Deb)! I love them both!

WOW, you lucky gal. I am thrilled for you. That very, very personal stone is so thoughtful and SO appropriate. That would have put me over the top, I'm sure.

Glad you had a great stress-free Christmas. Thats's the kind I like, too. Happy Boxing Day.

Sounds like your holiday was a juggling act- glad you had a memorable time. The stone and charm are lovely- the stone looks very interesting- your add on beading is something to look forward to seeing.

Have a good rest of the holiday and all the best for 2014!
