A loving gift… what a concept, right? In our super-fast, busy world don’t we hope that the gifts we give (and receive!) are loving ones? So, when a new friend called us up in need of a loving gift, we jumped to help her create something special.
The occasion? Her mother’s 72nd birthday. Now, I don’t know about you but I know my mamma’s 70th birthday is just around the corner and I cannot think of a single thing she NEEDS. But, she always appreciates a cherished gift. Our customer’s idea was to create something similar to our Count Your Blessings necklace. She wanted to create a necklace featuring different colored pearls to represent her two sons, one daughter and three nieces. A grand total of six grandchildren for her mother and a total of six pearls on her necklace. Together Abby and I pulled our different pearls of different colors and sizes.
We plotted and planned how to place six pearls of different colors in a uniform pattern. And here is what we came up with…
We just texted a photo to our friend and guess what we got? A three exclamation response:
“LOVE!!! Far better than anything I expected! It will be stunning on my mother. Thank you so much!”
I wrote her back to say “thank you” and to tell her how happy we are that she is happy. And her response?
“No! Thank you and your team! Fabulous!”
I really love this job!
