Last Friday, I had a great little package waiting for me when I checked my mail! What was it? It was a fabulous personalized charm necklace from Janelle at Sewblessed. She makes fabulous charms using your photos or any image you want. Her shop is Sodderbug You have to jump over to her shop and check out what she has made!!! I know once you look, you are going to want to order one for yourself!!
How did I get to be the fabulous new owner of this personalized piece?
There's always a story....
It all started when I left a comment on Infarrantly Creatives Blog when she was having a giveaway for a personalized charm neckalce from Sodderbug. She told us to leave a comment and tell what we would put on our charm if we won.
My comment: "No doubt in my mind, I would put a picture of my handsome soldier husband who I miss so much right now. Then I would always have him close to my heart!"
That night I received an email from Janelle
"Hey! this is janelle from www.sodderbug.com i would be honored to make you a charm with a pic of your deployed hubby and kids! i grew up an air force brat and love to do things for those serving!!! we can call it your valentine's day present that your hubby is not here to buy for you! XOXO"
She made me cry!
There are some sacrafices that those who are not associated with the military will never understand - - - not getting a hand-picked gift and a kiss from hubby on valentines is one of them. So I emailed her my pictures and just a few days later - - just in time for Valentines - - -I got my fabulous charm necklace. I love it!!!!
the back side - - it is actually a clear picture, but my photography skills were not up to par when I took this one!
Janelle attached this sweet note:Dear Wife,
Happy Valentine's Day! I love you and miss you and wish I was with you to give you this present!!! XOXOXOXO
Love, Your Husband
Thanks so much Janelle. It is absolutely perfect and I have worn it every day since I got it!!! Now, I'm not telling you all that you have to go and purchase something from her, but as a thanks would you go over and check out her stuff? Your going to love it! They would make great Mother's Day gifts (hint hint!!) - - I'm thinking of having one made as a medic alert -- then I could make sure all the important information is on the back side!!
