"When you recover or discover something that nourishes your soul or brings joy,
care enough about yourself to make room for it in your life."

Ornament #7
Pink & Lime

Happy Birthday Jeanne!

This ornament is for my favorite sister.  Okay, so she's my only sister!  I couldn't ask for a better sister, she's just such an amazing, loving, caring woman.  True story:  My sister, Jeanne, is 6 years older than me, and when we were kids, if my sister was angry with me about something (I was a real pest, apparently) she would threaten to cut off my eyelashes when I was asleep!  Really she did.  She has blond hair and short eyelashes, I have dark hair and very long eyelashes, so that was her threat, to cut off my eyelashes! (She never did cut them short!)  Today, of course, we laugh about it and although she still issues that threat as a joke, I do live clear across the country so I think my eyelashes are safe!  Jeanne's craft studio is pink, lime, and black so I made this ornament just for her.
