Have you ever seen something and thought to yourself, "OMG, that's SO made for me!" ?
Well, last week, I took a gander at Etsy as means of procrastination, and I came across this:
So, without even thinking about it, I bought it!
Now, for those who know me well, know that I usually analyze everything to death before I buy it. I will debate back and forth and ask everyone I know "should I get this? should I? Is it worth the money?" Usually, this results in it being too late for me to buy something (just ask Alli about the bookshelves!)
This time I did not.
I just KNEW that this was made for me!
Little did I know...
It really WAS made for me!!
It was a custom order that my friend Jo put in specifically for me. I only found out because I emailed Jo a link to that particular item with big bold letters that said "LOOK WHAT I BOUGHT!!!!"
and Jo was like "uh, you have to cancel your order!"
Of course, I had to ask why, and Jo, being all panicky, couldn't think of a good excuse why I should cancel my order, and out came the truth.
Isn't that hilarious?? We all had a good laugh, Jo, Michele (the shop owner), and myself. Michele gracefully offered to reimburse me or to make something else for me with that fabric. You can guess what I chose, because I love that fabric so much!
So, the next time you see something and think it was made just for you, maybe it was !!
- I am a bereaved mother and wife. I began this blog to help me look for the "good things" in life after my daughter, "Babybear", died in July 2005. Three years later, her daddy, my husband, "Bear", died in November 2008. (You'll find a link to their stories on my blog) And now, as difficult as it is, I continue to look for the good things in my life as I learn my new normal with my pup, "Furrybear", at my side. And the angels on my shoulder...
