A birthday gift for a very special person ~

Is it OK that I've turned my sweet mother-in-law into a fairy??!! We're going to her birthday party Saturday and I wanted to give her something different from us, something a little out-of-the-ordinary....I'm thinking this qualifies!

I hope you have a great Saturday!!

xxoo, Dawn

ps. Thank you all so much for making my first One Day Sell at The Little Speckled Egg a smashing success!!! I'll keep the Buy It Now button up for all tutorials only 10.00 for purchasing until Saturday morning ~ Thank you!!

Oh my, she looks just like Glenda the good witch in the Wizard of Oz! She is beautiful! I think your Mother-in-law will love her!

Dawn- She is going to love that!!
One year I made copies of Jim's parent's wedding photo, framed them(added a few bits and bobs) and gave them to his brothers and sisters for Christmas. Can you believe that not one of them had ever seen that photograph? It had been in a box, tucked away.
There were a lot of tears that Christmas Eve. Be prepared for some from your sweet fairy jar. :)

Oh I don't think that she'll be one bit upset. What a beautiful fairy she makes and what a great idea! Is that newspaper an account of something in her life?

What a wonderful and thoughtful gift!! All to often we rush around giving gifts we think will please the physical wants when it's those gifts given to our emotional needs that mean the most!! You have been given a special gift in being able to know the difference!! :c}

Have a wonderful time at the birthday party and we expect a report in the morning!!!

Dawn... the gift is the best .... I know she will cherish it.... Thanks for all you do for me and for all that have enjoyed the pleasure of your company..... So many look good in photos and their pics are lovely but when it comes to giving of themselfs and from the heart they come up short... Dawn you are in a league all you own and I am so glad I am on your bench.
