Well, I had to wait to post this one until after my mom’s received it for her birthday, because it was a gift for her.
I’d been “creeping” on Bama+Ry’s Etsy shop for quite some time now, in fact ever since she started cropping up in the Etsy Success forums and not only asking great questions, but also providing wonderful advice. Then I found her blog and started to get to know the person behind the shop. It wasn’t long before I was itching to purchase a creation of hers.
Excellently, what I was thinking for my mom’s birthday aligned perfectly with her shop. When I was younger, my mom used to read me Guess How Much I Love You all the time. It’s a story about Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare, and they are essentially holding a contest about who loves who more. And Little Nutbrown Hare will say “I love you as high as I can reach” and Big Nutbrown Hare would say “I love you as high as I can reach.” At the end, Little Nutbrown Hare says “I love you right up to the moon” and, right after he falls asleep, Big Nutbrown Hare whispers “I love you right up to the moon…and back.”
Even as I got older, my mom and I would say that to each other. So, for her birthday, even though we don’t get to see each other as much anymore (me being all moved out of the house and supposedly grown up and all that!), I wanted to tell her how much I love her. After a complete quick, efficient messages between Bama+Ry and I, my pendant was in the works!
Even though it was a custom order, I received it very quickly, and I’m so happy with the way it turned out. My mom came to visit me for our birthday (yes, we have the same one!) and she was so happy and excited! It couldn’t have turned out better!
Thank you Bama+Ry!
