Today I would like to tell you more about my dear friend Ms. Gail Pither the owner/designer at CrossStitchCards.  After making cards for all her friends and family she started making them to sell a few years ago while she was living in California!!  I was lucky enough to be able to meet her in person when I was home on Vacation a couple of years ago and let me tell you - we are kindred spirits!!  It is amazing how bits of floss and paper can turn into such amazing pieces of art.  And let me tell you, when you hand one of these cards over to someone....the fun and joy in their eyes is worth everything!! (That reminds me, I need to stock up again)!!

Selling and stitching her own cross-stitch designs makes everything she does unique and beautiful!!!  Here are a few of my favorites.....it is so hard to just choose a couple!!

2 Talented Tuesday 12/16/14 (CrossStitchCards, Fireworks and Give-A-Ways)


Today I will be working on my Fireworks bracelet, doing laundry and maybe even putting the roast in the crock-pot....maybe!!  Beading and finishing Christmas gifts seems to take over my time right now....the dishes can wait!! :)  Do you ever feel overwhelmed?  Like there isn't enough time in each day to create all the things you would like to??  I already don't sleep much, now I am dreaming of the projects that I have still to do.....but at least they are happy dreams full of beads!! :)  



Just look at how this bracelet is coming along!!! I have to say that this will make someones NEW YEAR special!!  You can come over to my Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page  were I post 'working' photos throughout the day!!

Today I am honored to introduce you to a friend and fellow artist; Ms. Gail Pither the owner/designer at CrossStitchCards.  This amazing artist started doing Cross stitch about 12 years ago.  It all started with a design out of a magazine, and then..... she fell in love with Cross Stitch!  I personally have given many of her cards out and it is easy to see the joy that people get when they open that envelope and see those cards (my mom frames them and puts them on her wall)!! 

Now she deigns her own patterns (and sell them too) to create her beautiful cards, wall hangings and bookmarks.  The way she finished her cards just adds to the beautiful stitching that she does!!  

Here are just a few of her designs, come back tomorrow and I'll tell you more about her creations and shy I love them so much!! :)
