Lemonade, anyone?

My beautiful friend Tasha is a wonderful mother to one of the cutest little boy I know. She's not only a great mother and loving wife, but also very creative and crafty, more than she gives herself credit for.  I love recieving mail from her, because it's always so thoughtful and her words are touching and inspiring.  Look at what she made for Eli and I!  Isn't it the sweetest thing?




I've also been on a DIY kick, making little things here and there... and as a thank you to my sweet sister (in law) Leah for "baby sitting" Pooma while we were gone, I made her this cute little wishbone necklace. :)  I didn't take a picture of the clasp part of the necklace, but it's adorned with two little turquoise beads. Her fav!!



I even packaged it in a zippy with a cute little label.  I'm thinking of opening up an Etsy Shop.  If When I do open up shop, I've decided on calling it "Lemons with a C". :)  That's actually what Eli tells people who ask him how to spell Clemons. :)  As cliche as it may sound, I love the saying, "When life hands you lemons, make some lemonade", so the name is only fitting.  I NEED TO STOP PROCRASTING and get to it!!

Love, S
