M.E. Monday

Welcome, again to Mary Engelbreit Monday. Please join us and post the link to your blog with the related Mary Engelbreit pictures to share with everyone. It can be a ME licensed product or something that was "inspired" by Mary Engelbreit's artwork. It "should" be a photo that you took of something that you own. We're flexible here....let's have fun above all else.

This is the "close up" view of the wonderful Mary Engelbreit 25 days of Christmas wreath made special for ME (as in Vicki).  My sweet friend Genie from Buttons for Baga Blogspot surprised me with this lovely, heartfelt gift this week.
Genie had participated in a Christmas Matchbox exchange earlier this month so she had the hang of decorating the matchboxes down perfectly. Only this time around she did everything in a Mary Engelbreit motif. There is so much work involved in this darling wreath. She sewed little yo-yo circles out of ME fabrics and added buttons to make the charming banner that circles the grapevine wreath. She decorated all of the 25 little matchboxes inside and out triming each of them with cute little ME scrapbook chipboard pieces. What a Lucky Lady I am to have such wonderful friends who make me such fabulous one of a kind gifts.  I will cherish it always and know that a whole lot of heart went in to creating it especially for me.
This wonderful wreath will have a year round spot on the wall in Cherry Chick Jewelry's "Corporate" Studio. :-)

Don't forget that the Cherry Chick Christmas Jewelry 48 hour sale continues until 8 p.m. EST on Monday. (see Sat. post)
Once you've posted your picture come back and add your link in Mr. Linky below. Please share the link back to my blog so that everyone can take part in sharing their post and picture.
