One of my best friends in the world, Leilani, is getting married soon. She is engaged to such a wonderful man and I couldn't be happier for her! I admire and look up to Leilani in so many ways. She has been there for me since I was a scared little sophomore in high school. She listens to my tearful phone calls, knows when I need to meet and vent over coffee, and is one of those rare friends that actually listens to what I am saying. I don't know where I would be without her friendship. So, I decided to make her something extra special for her wedding shower last weekend. I crocheted a slice of wedding cake for her and a slice for the groom, Keith, and put them on top of a little, scalloped plate. I added their initials on top and their wedding date in the middle to make it extra personal. I gave embroidery a try for the first time with the numbers and letters and let me just say...I'm hooked! As if I need another hobby...haha. I just listed this piece as a made to order item in my Etsy shop too!
I feel so lucky to have friends like her that believe in my craftiness. :)
Sometimes I feel like if she didn't ignite that desire to share my creations through Etsy and the blog world, I never would have learned to believe in myself. Thank you Leilani! I wish you and Keith all of the happiness in the world.
