Why Handmade Gifts are the Best...

My buddy Sharon Fischer of Stray Notions surprised me the other day with this amazing congratulatory embroidery! She must have spent hours creating this whimsical piece and it really shows! She knew my favorite color is teal/aqua and used it in the lettering...she also added sparkly thread here and there...and best of all? A tiny blue bead to represent my engagement ring! It's just perfect and will be something both Ben and I will treasure forever! Thank you soooooo much Sharon! :)

PS - Sharon makes beautiful custom embroidered bags, etc. and you can gift a special person (or yourself) with her amazing work...visit her Etsy shop for more info!
