My Sister, My Friend

Happy Birthday to my big sister yesterday!

  I am so grateful for her and don’t know what I would ever do without her.  she is the person I bounce my crafting ideas off, the one I tell my secrets too, the one I complain to.  now don’t get me wrong… I have 2 other sisters and 6 sisters-in-law that I love dearly.  I’m just grateful that my best friend happens to be my sister too. 

Beth and I agreed years ago that we will always exchange birthday gifts with each other.  each year she gives me just the right whimsical present that I never knew I needed untill I had it. lol

This year I made Beth a Christmas apron.


I also made a few things for her to put in her kids Christmas stockings.  We both were in a stocking stuffer exchange swap that went very awry.  Beth’s package didn’t make it here in time for Christmas so we were scrambling at the last-minute to come up with a few items so the stockings wouldn’t be empty.  So with the addition of my contribution, her kids now have a wonderfully magical assortment in their stockings

I made a mushroom, 2 notebooks, and fabric tissue holders.


and Beth made the cutest mermaid dolls which I gladly paid her $10 for each.  she made mermaids for the swap which I was so lucky to receive the green one.  please contact Beth if you would like a doll of your own 🙂  maybe she’ll open an etsy shop if enough people are willing to purchase her adorable creations.


About Missy

I'm a wife to an awesome Army vet, and mother to four daughters and three step-sons! I love to sew. I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.
