Just over a week ago, a parcel arrived in my box. It was a total surprise as I wasn't expecting anything! I turned it over and was even more surprised when I saw it was from my bestie, Mardi.
Inside the package was this gorgeously wrapped present. It isn't even my birthday so I was feeling SUPER spoiled!
Mardi had also made me a beautiful card, I was feeling even MORE spoiled by now and super excited to open it and see what was inside.
I excitedly opened up my beautiful present and gasped when I saw what was inside. My beautiful friend had TOTALLY spoiled me. Inside was a beautifully handmade journal cover - made in Mardi style with a gorgeous blend of vintage and new fabrics in a way that I adore. Anyone who knows me knows that I LOVE journal covers, so this is super special to me.
Also in the package was a GORGEOUS owl, again, handmade by Mardi for me. Isn't she just the cutest!!
Also pictured is a beautiful bracelet that Mardi sent me as well, made with vintage beads etc. I adore it too!!!
I have to tell you that I carried these special goodies with me everywhere for days. It isn't very often that someone makes something for me, and to be made in Mardi style makes them even more special. I showed my ladies in my classes, my family - anyone I could because I love them so much. Thank you thank you thank you Mardi for spoiling me xxxxx
Now, you might be wondering what my blog title has to do with my present from Mardi. This is where it gets even MORE exciting. After a tiny bit of encouragement, Mardi has opened her very own etsy store - YIPEE!!!! Now you all have a chance to own a little piece of Mardi's gorgeous handwork too.
Mardi's store is called 'Dudley and Grace' and is full of gorgeous goodies made by Mardi. You can visit her store and take a look HERE. Be quick as I am sure her goodies will sell super fast too! Everything is made with a gorgeous mix of vintage and new fabrics and stitched in Mardi's style too. I just love them ALL and am sure you will too. x Janelle
