I found this shop a little while before becoming a member of Etsy bloggers. I was instantly drawn to the handcrafted items that reminded me of my childhood. Mom would sit for days on end with me and my sister, and we would paint and hand stitch ornaments and gift bags for cookies as well as handmade gifts. They were always well received and soon becoame a beloved family tradition.
It wasn't long after opening my Etsy shop that I was introduced to the blogging world. You know, blogging is great because, well, you never really meet the people behind the blogs, but you somehow feel like you are long time friends or neighbors.
There was already a familiar homeyness about Linda's shop but reading her blog, I instantly felt a connection of sorts. It was not religion, or a face to face meeting it was just a comfortable "I'm an everyday person" kind of feeling that made me want to read more.
I soon learned that Linda is a breast cancer survivor. Having just learned of my mothers cancer and now helping her recover, I am so encouraged to see Linda living a very full life.
I am also drawn to her family. I am a mother of four myself. I love my children. Being a mom is one of the most fulfilling aspect of who I am, but Linda has me beat by a LONG way.
She is grandmother to 25 and counting. What a blessing the holiday seasons must be, how lively, how sweet.
I hope you will take the time to stop by her shop and definitely read her blog and get to know Linda.
