A Garland for a Special Friend

Elyse Major is one of those "friends I've never met" but feel a special bond with.
I have been reading her blog for about 3 years and I've purchased a number
 of items from her Etsy shop.

Elyse loves the Cath Kidson look...
soft pastels with a dash of red...colors I love, too.

I read every post that she writes on her blog and on Facebook, but I don't always
 comment. She will mention a new article she has written in a particular magazine
 like Romantic Homes, Romantic Country or Cottages & Bungalows,
or that she has been featured in a magazine such as Artful Blogging.
At that point, I am up and out of my chair to run and find the magazine,
forgetting to leave a comment!
(this was swiped borrowed from Elyse's blog...isn't this an adorable arrangement?)
Elyse won my Birthday Giveaway and I decided to make a little something special
for her because she is special herself.
 I hope she enjoys this little "smooches" garland.
I used the red dots that she loves and even cut hearts from a sheet of
Cath Kidson stationary...now that's friendship! :D





(I really need to learn how to take better pictures!)


I hope you like this Elyse!

Now, what do you think about this?
Stay tuned!
xoxo
Joyce

I love the hearts. I love that people think of these things let alone actually DO THEM. I seem to never find the time, but I know its because I don't think of it first. Thank you for inspiration, thats what reading blogs does for me.

You make awesome gifts and are very generous! Are you going to make "poppers" with the toilet paper rolls??
Warmly,
