Lovely blog, lovely giveaway. Please sign me up!

Gretchen Schaumann

Hi Karla. I just came over from Beth's blog to see the meaning behind the charm birthday bracelet you gave her. What a lovely gift. It is so fun to read the significance behind each of the items you added to the design. I just did this on my blog earlier today with a necklace my daughter gave to Lauren Conrad from the Hills. It is so fun to make things specific to a person. Nice work.
The journals are great too. Now if only I would win won of those on your June give away. lol
