Thank You, Taylor!...


The amazing and creative genius behind Taylored Expressions, Taylor VanBruggen, gave me an incredible Christmas gift -- which is so wonderful, considering that my time on her Baker's Dozen design team has been a gift in it of itself! She sent me a lovely charm necklace with my initial (plus cupcake!) and a beautiful, hand-crafted monogram frame which is now hanging in my craft space. (How did she know I am a sucker for anything that has to do with my name?)


Well, I wanted to thank Taylor for her thoughtfulness and sat around for a long time trying to figure out what to send her. She is a whiz in the kitchen; I recently set off the smoke detector baking a batch of cookies! So, a homemade treat was probably not a good idea! Then, I remembered the adorable Christmas photo card that Taylor included with my gift featuring fabulous photos of herself and her handsome hubby and I came up with an idea. Since Taylor is such an amazing cook, why not make her something to keep in the kitchen? So, I decided to make her a magnetic photo frame that she could place on her refrigerator using one of the photos from her darling card. I also created a card to go with it using, what else? Some of my favorite TE stamps and supplies! Thank you so much, Taylor, for all your creativity, inspiration, and kindness. Happy New Year!
