Let’s face it. I have one of the most creative and talent-laden extended families in the history of the universe. My word. If I started listing all the things they can make and do, you wouldn’t believe me for an instant.
All of a sudden I feel terrible that I’m blogging about my cousin Jen when I’ve had my sister Bethany’s gorgeous handmade apron and my sister Stephanie’s gorgeous handmade necklaces sitting around for ages, meaning to auction them off for the kids in Cambodia.
Soon, sweet sisters, soon!
Jen’s mom has 6 brothers. One of them is my dad. So we’re first cousins. Jen and my youngest sister Stephanie have always been super-close (Jen is 8 years younger than me). They played together as young tots, flirted together as teenagers and each stood proudly on the platform waiting for the other one to walk down the aisle on her daddy’s arm.
Jen and I, on the other hand, haven’t always had the smoothest of relationships. Then I matured. And now I think she’s fab.
And super-talented. The list of things this girl has accomplished and plans to accomplish is just flabbergasting. And would you look at these gorgeous crosses??!
This is the one she’s making for me. Oh, can you even handle all the CORNFLOWER BLUE??
There are three other gorgeous crosses as well. And you’re not going to believe this, but YOU CAN WIN YOUR VERY OWN BEADED CROSS!! All you have to do is click over to Jen’s blog, pick the cross you like best and leave a comment telling me the name of it.
I’m going to draw the winner’s name tonight (Tuesday) at 11pm EST, so hopefully you’ll get your cross by Easter. Wouldn’t that be awesome?
And if you don’t win, you can buy the crosses for $15. Sweet, huh??
May the best woman (man) win! (You have until 11pm EST, U.S. addresses only please.)
