Thank you sweet friends ~

The birth of a precious child, a wedding or another special event are the things that make our lives so wonderful. But to share it with sweet friends is truly the icing on the cake!!! A dear friend and customer of The Plum Tree works at the hospital where Clara was born. Deborah reads the blog and had been keeping up with all of the news and she knew right away when Emily came to the hospital!! She's such a sweetheart and continually checked on her progress.

Today was going home day and after I showed up to pick them all up, Deborah came by the room bearing the sweetest grandmother gifts!!! A pretty brag book and a beautiful bird in it's nest!! She knows how I love them and I'll have to find something neat to place inside of it.

Thank you very much are so thoughtful and it was wonderful sharing this special time in our lives with you!!

Clara had a great day at home today (Wednesday). Emily has been amazing, as has Brent ~ they've remained calm, loving and are going to be wonderful parents.

Tomorrow I'm back in the studio to begin cleaning, organizing and getting everything placed where I want it!! I can't wait....hopefully I'll be able to put it together quickly because I am SO in the mood to create a little artwork ~

Please forgive me for not responding to each of your wonderful comments and wishes ~ but just know that to have shared this with each of you on my blog as been the biggest blessing to me!!! You all are such a blessing to me! Thank you sooooo much!

Wishing you an amazing Thursday sweet friends,

xxoo, Dawn

Having a new little bundle of joy in your family calls for a ccelebration. So grab your party hat and give your horn a toot, you deserve it. I imagine the joy of the new baby makes you even more excited to get into your studio and create. Have fun in your studio.
