My middle sister Eriko turned 26 yesterday, October 26th
and this is the handmade gift I sent her. She is the girliest
girl who loves everything girly, sweet, and very pink, so I
should've made a pink one like this instead, but somehow
this is how it turned out. While making it, I was becoming
more and more sure that she would not like this busy potholder
but my heart was set that this was going to be hers, so
I had to gift it to her. Well let me explain why
I think it should be hers, will you?
First off, when she was a little kid, her dream was to
become a bakery chef and she used to bake lots of yummy
bread, so that explains why I started off with the bear
with a pancake! And if you look at it closer, you may
notice that there is a cake, a little message that says
"happy birthday", and 'love'. Oh and "Congratulations"
was not on purpose but it was great I included it,
because she passed a really hard exam last year to
become a clinical psychologist which I don't even know
what exactly it is but I know she can tell you a lot
about you and what's going on in your mind if you
show her a tree you drew. Interesting.
I'm definitely sure she likes this one though.
This was made by my friend Kerry in Florida
who just opened a little online custom jewelry
shop called Sweet Heart Silver. She was
so nice to make this custom necklace for
Eriko within just a few days, gift-wrapped it
beautifully, and sent it off to me right away.
I could choose from so many different sterling
silver jewelry, satins, and even fonts of
When I told her that I must blog about this
necklace, she was sweet to offer a special
coupon code (10% off of your order): pinkpenguin
for you guys in case you want to shop there.
You won't regret taking a look at her shop I promise :)
Thank you Kerry for making such a lovely
necklace for my sister so quickly :)
Thank you for stopping by!
Have a fabulous day!
