Voodoo Doll Pincushion Swap Gift - WOW

When I wrote about the package I received from Kerry I was so overwhelmed with things going on in my life that all I could do was love the beautiful Voodoo doll and the other amazing gifts included with it. The week that I received it my boss's mother was hospitalized and my co-worker was stricken with a kidney stone which she will finally be having removed tomorrow! I have been holding down the fort at work, worrying about my boss, her amazing mom, my co-worker and to make it ever worse, I found out (that same week) that my Dad has cancer again and he began chemotherapy last week. Needless to say I was a bit frazzled! After two long weeks I am happy to say that there is good news on most fronts. My boss's mom continues to improve,  my co-worker will hopefully be back to work by Thursday and my dad is not suffering from any side effects from the treatments.

This weekend is the first time in over 2 weeks that I could sit and be hopeful. So, today I was finally able to relax a bit and I realized that not only is the tote bag I received hand painted and embroidered, it was completely hand made by Kerry. When I realized that I had to post about it again!

As you can imagine, the package truly made my week and now that I am able to sit down and enjoy it I am just in awe of the beautiful work that went into my gift!! Kerry, thank you again. I really, truly appreciate the amount of hard work and skill that went into the gift you sent me!!


  1. Debbie, you're so sweet :-)
    Glad it could bring a little light relief, to what sounds like an awful 2 weeks. Glad to hear that things are looking up, and hoping that they go from strength to strength.
    Take Care XXX

  2. I hope things in your life are going much better. Prayers for your dad and continued improvement without major side effects for him.
