Clips and A Cozy

Every once in awhile we meet someone who immediately finds their way into more than our heart...and into our very soul.  I have been lucky enough to meet a few of those "soul" friends...who've always seemed to show up just when I needed them...and whose special place in my own soul never grows smaller, despite how far the distance or how long the time apart.

A few years ago I met just such a person...much younger than I...but in many ways we are very much alike.  We love the same things...we find the same things important...and we so enjoy any time we can find together.  I truly didn't know it at the time, but I needed her...and I have learned more from her than I could ever have imagined.  When she moved several hours away...I wasn't worried... I knew that we'd keep in touch...and I was right.  I'm hoping to see her later this week...and I wanted to do a little something special for her.  I'm thrilled that she'll be bringing her beautiful little daughter, too...and of course, I can't leave her out!  And so...for a wonderful mom and a just as wonderful daughter...


 and a cozy!

 Papertrey Ink (PTI) offers AMAZING dies for these great barrette covers and a coffee cozy...truly making it easy peasy to whip up something absolutely adorable...and they're fun, to boot!  Seriously, who could ask for more?  PTI dies are also available for the barette packaging, and the fun little envelope is one of my new Accucut dies.  Oh, and I'm so excited that I finally got to cut into the OA Silent Night paper that I picked up at StarLitStudio.  (Cindy at StarLit is AWESOME!)

My friend is currently expecting baby #4, and I'm not sure whether or not she's drinking coffee, so I filled her cup with Muddy Buddies...or Puppy Chow...and some holiday M&M's.  If she's holding off on the coffee until the new little bundle of joy arrives, I know that she does enjoy her cuppa Joe, and I think she'll love this cozy.  I think she'll also love the mom and daughter matching thing going on! 

Now...fingers crossed that the snow and ice forecast for this weekend stays away!

Thanks for visiting...and God Bless!
