A List Maker's Life: Gifted

Wednesday, April 7, 2010


Several months ago, with my fingers crossed, I entered a giveaway on one of my favorite blogs.  The blog owner, Kris has become a friend as we've communicated back and forth.  She is amazingly kind, gifted, and creative.  In addition to the wonderful tips and ideas she shares on Jesse Kate Designs, she is also the site manager of SWAKembroidery.com, team member of  YouCanMakeThis.com, and now co-host of theDIYdish.com

You can only imagine how thrilled I was when I was chosen as the giveaway winner and Kris offered to make an individualized pillow for each of my kids.  So, in her freetime (ha!) she got busy sewing three detailed, thoughtful, unique, room-matchy, name pillows for our little ones.
I've been anxious to show you her beautiful work, but had to wait for their big reveal in our house on Easter morning.  The kids love them.  Anne Hope was especially thrilled to see "all 8 of her letters" on one big pillow.
Thank you so very much Kris. 
We appreciate all of your effort to make these gifts so special!
