Another WoW gift!



Here is another WoW gift I received, this one is from my sweet friend Melinda. She will argue with me, but I think she is super sweet.


I just love the book mark and the Christmas book. I have not finished the book, but I have had to beat my daughter to get my bookmark back. LOL! Just kidding but she has been asking for it. But I am a mean mommy and I am keeping it for myself. Plus it does not have her initial so it just would not work. --- Good reasoning right?


Big Hugs, Maria

Wow gift!

This is one of the WoW gifts I received this Christmas. My dear friend Vickie made this for me, and I love it. She made it using the Angel Company Miss Moxie Collection. I love that she made it versatile to use all year. I love these letters and enjoy having such creativity to look at through out the year.

I have two other gifts to share with you but you will have to check back in a day or two to see them. My friends really spoiled me this year. I am truly blessed with the friend brought into my life. I thank God for them!

Hugs, Maria
