words of kindness and the stories...

i love the words of kindness i receive from customers...
they are all so encouraging and helps me to 
keep motivated in running this little etsy shop of mine.
and i also love knowing the stories behind each hand stamped charm that 
i personally stamp for my customers.
the piece below was ordered from a blog follower who's grandpa
recently passed away.
her favorite memories were of her grandpa always buying her
grandma necklaces.
so she wanted to surprise her grandma with a charm necklace
that had her grandpa's initials stamped on it.
such a sweet story...
and i was touched by what she wrote in her email to me...

"I know there are thousands of other people who can make this, but you have an amazing spirit (I'm a blog follower) so I wanted to check with you first."

yes! there are many wonderful and amazing hand stampers out there who
offer more than what i offer and
i was quite thrilled that she chose me to personalize and handstamp
that special piece for her grandma.
and also the fact that she reads my blog and is a follower
was even more of an honor...
thank you bec for your sweet email : )
i hope your grandma will love and enjoy her necklace.
next, the order above was from a recipient of the 
john 10:10 necklaces that i created last month that
was given to her at the women's retreat.
and here's what she wrote...

"hello! I have a necklace that was made by you recently - the stamped "John 10:10" with a pearl. You made several of those for a friend of mine, and I had the pleasure of receiving it as a gift! It is lovely, and I take great joy in it."

she placed an order for 11 tiny initial necklaces...
3 for her daughters to place in their easter baskets...
and the rest as graduations gifts!
sweet words from customers and blog followers
are always such a joy and a blessing...
and i appreciate each and everyone!

Grandma loved the necklace and I'm pretty sure she's worn it every day since she got it. I'll post pictures some day when I can get a shot of her with it :)
