Customer Orders – February 2017

Our blog has been pretty quiet lately as my Fibromyalgia has been playing havoc so I have been concentrating on working on customer orders and not spending as much time on the computer but I’m hoping that as my current flare starts to settle down I’ll be able to post more regular updates.

Today I thought I would share with you some of my latest customer ordered, personalised handcrafted greetings cards. All of these are eight inch square cards with designs chosen specifically for our customers requirements – I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed working on them πŸ™‚

Today would be Mum’s 60th birthday but on 23rd February 2007 Mum was taken from our lives but there is never a day passes when she is not in our thoughts πŸ˜”

Happy birthday Mum, thank you for everything you ever did for me, everything you ever gave me, everything you said to me and being the best Mum I could have asked for. The biggest gift you ever gave me was life and the confidence, support and courage to face the world, regardless of what was thrown my way.

I will never forget the card I found in my suitcase when I was in Benidorm, a much needed holiday due to problems at work, it simply read:
“Don’t let the ba***rds get you down! Mum”
I still have that card, and that sentiment is always with me. Thank you Mum!!

“Every day become more like my Mother
And I couldn’t be prouder”

A lot has changed in the past nine years, there are so many differences in my life – I hope you would be proud of the choices I have made, the decisions and options, the walking away and starting afresh. I’m happy now but I always miss you πŸ’–

πŸŽ‰ 🎈 Happy 60th Birthday Mum!!! 🎈 πŸŽ‰

Love you with all my heart, you are always in my thoughts xxxxx

We miss and love you dearly

Your birthday’s not forgotten

In Memory Of A Wonderful Mum – She Is Gone

I recently contacted Dandelion Wishes and Good Night Kisses through their Facebook page, after admiring their work for a very long time.

As most of you will know, we lost my Mum on 23rd February 2007, and as it is now coming up to Mum’s 60th birthday I had decided that I want to get something special done with a poem we were sent to be read at her funeral.

We have family who live in New Zealand (my Dad’s youngest sister, her husband and two children) who were sadly unable to make it over to the UK for Mum’s funeral so they decided on a poem and sent it over to us via email… we had this poem read during Mum’s service.

I spoke to Sarah about incorporating this poem into a special remembrance piece… after some discussion we decided that Sarah would add this poem to one of her large handcrafted blocks with a matching tealight holder.

I am absolutely overwhelmed with the attention to detail and how pretty Dandelion Wishes and Good Night Kisses work is. Sarah’s customer service is fantastic and she kept me informed every step of the way, sending me photographs of her progress and giving many options for each piece.

I would highly recommend Dandelion Wishes and Good Night Kisses to anyone looking for a special and unique gift or memorial piece.

Here is my new memorial plaque and candle holder in their new home, on the shelf above my desk. Sat next to them is my Hugs For Noah Award which we received in 2014.
