Anyway ... this is a great gift idea for birthdays, upcoming graduation parties or if you just want to surprise someone you love with a gift that's heartfelt and hand-crafted.
These little dainties are made by my dear friend Cathy. I cannot say enough about my friend Cathy, but if I was going to start, I would tell you that she's an amazing cook/baker and an incredibly talented artist. She's one of those people that I pinch myself for knowing to make sure that I'm not dreaming of this very cool person who I call friend. Yeah - I'm pretty fond of her.
Anyway ... these necklaces represent a recent creation of Cathy's which miniaturizes some of her watercolors so they can be turned into pendants.
This one's mine ... I just can't get over the colors ...
Here's some information about Cathy from the SEMVA Gallery, which is a gallery in Rochester that represents visual artists from southeastern Minnesota. These necklaces are available at SEMVA for my Minnesota peeps. Or I can connect you with Cathy - just drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
And because I really like all of you and because Cathy was generous enough to gift me with an additional necklace - it's giveaway time. Here's the rules ... leave me a comment on here or on the ShelleyBakes page on Facebook that tells me your favorite "mom" story ... either one that involves you with your momma or a mom moment with one of your kids (four-legged included). Make sure it's not too cringe inducing, because she might just read this ... :)
In terms of which necklace it is - it's whatever one that Ryan didn't choose to give to his momma. At press time, I don't know which one he's going to give her ...
The giveaway ends on Friday, May 20th at 5 p.m. CST. The winner will be drawn at random. Likely by my husband.
