A treat for my birthday week and first look at my MDSW debut! 🐑
Celebratory salutations! 😊
I'm happy to share that it's once again one of my favorite times of year -- my birthday week. Instead of receiving gifts, I love to come up with a special treat to share with others, and I think you'll really enjoy this year's happy little bundles! From now until next Thursday night, each and every order placed will include a gossamer treasure bag, filled with nifty notions to brighten your day.
Now, if you're curious about that shawl pin featured in today's header, let's move on to my next surprise for the day!
Even though we can't be together in person, the wonderful staff of Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival have put together a virtual version we can all enjoy from the comfort of home. I was inspired by their hard work to create a special #ShawlPinStyle.
This show has always been a celebration of the wonders created by humans, nature, and the synergistic magic of both. My 2020 MDSW exclusive draws its inspiration from that cooperative bond, with each shawl pin handcrafted using a bead that shines both with delicate artisanship and the beauty of spring in bloom.
While the event is still a week away, I wanted to share this piece with you as part of my birthday week event. That's why I've set up a limited pre-order just for you, my dear readers!
They won't ship until May 4th, but you'll be guaranteed my birthday treat just for placing your order within the week.
Just in case this Czech glass bead hasn't quite captured your heart, I thought I'd share a sampling of other recent additions as well.
I love surprises, whether they're for a holiday or any day. I thought that some of you might enjoy treating yourself to a larger surprise to go with my birthday goodies, so I've restocked the Mystery Shawl Pin Grab Bags. Two Noteworthy or Penannular Rare Breeds will make their way into your mailbox in your choice of warm or cool colors for just $33!
There are also quite a few Magnificent Minis that I didn't get a chance to share with you when last we virtually met. My example here is Amazing in Amber, which shines like a drop of fresh honey as it falls into your morning tea. While I'm not officially sharing this last one...there are a few Rare Breeds hidden away on the website too!
Thank you all for spending another amazing year by my side. I couldn't do this without your help and support, and I am truly grateful to have each and every one of you in my community. 💙
