Show and Tell & Little Lotti

Wow, another week has gone by. Its almost half way through the year! Do you realize that Christmas will be back in stores in four months. Thats just down right scary. I want to make my cupcakes and sweet dreams bakery into Christmas ornaments this year. I guess I had really better get started on that. But for now its Mothers Day and if you are looking for a perfect, unique and original present this year, dont forget about the Shop Hop going on at Make Mine Pink. There is a button on my sidebar to register to join in all the fun and find great gifts. Hey I even buy my own Mothers Day present each year. I have been really busy making new jewelry with the great roses I get from my friend cindy. She had makes these ceramic roses and I love the colors. ( These three bracelets and necklace are listed on my website now. I love the red necklace, it just makes me laugh.

Another very talented lady is Brandie from . She designs and makes a line of childrens clothes that is just adorable! She had a contest on her blog celebrating her 100th post. I was so lucky to have won! It was an adorable skirt and tank top and a really sweet doll she made. I was giving the skirt to my grand daughter Mya. I got my mail friday night and got so excited that I drove straight to Mya's house. I didnt have my camera with me! Thats what I get for being so impatient. But I borrowed the photo from her website so you can see it. I took the photo of the doll. Mya isnt getting that,,, its MINE! lol Mya has never played with dolls, however I still do. :) Her workmanship is beautiful. Great quality. Her photography is awesome. It was wrapped so sweet. SO be sure to visit her website. Thank you for my beautiful prize. Have a great week.... gail

The new pieces are beautiful, I'm sort of partial to that yellow bracelet. Looks so springlike to me. Cindy's roses are always so nice and you use them perfectly - quite a talented team. Glad Mya liked the skirt, and you enjoy the doll - awesome prize Brandie.

Gail, your new pieces are wonderful! I love Cindy's roses and how you have showcased them in your work. Very nice! I laughed when I read your description of driving straight to your grand daughter's with gift and no camera. I do that all the time!! I don't know who is more excited, me or the kids! So thankful and blessed to have them in driving distance. Enjoyed your blog!!
