Just Gotta Share It...

Greetings! Hope this Monday finds you well! I just had to take a minute to share with you something I received last week from Judy of Just a Little Something for You. I was one of the blessed recipients of her "Pay-it-Forward." Is this not the cutest apron you have ever seen!?

It was made by her very talented sister-in-law, Julia. Apparently a couple of months ago, she and Judy were chatting about being empty nesters. They were mulling over different options of things they might do at this stage of their life. Judy suggested that maybe Julia should start sewing again. (For many years she had been an exceptional seamstress, and even made clothes for her children when they were young. As they became teenagers, her sewing was put on the back burner.) Needless to say, Julia took Judy’s advice and literally ran with it. Within weeks, she had created a number of these beautiful aprons, all with matching tea towels! (Something tells me this might be a small business in the making!) I absolutely LOVE this, Judy…thank you again so much! ☺

Talent and creativity is in abundant supply in Judy’s family. She herself is loaded with it! Pour yourself a cup of coffee and take a visit to her blog and you’ll see exactly what I mean. She is a "Joy Spreader" in every sense of the word! She loves making everyday moments special with a favorite dish, a handmade creation or a bit of inspiration. Most importantly, she loves the Lord and does everything with such grace and humility. She is truly an absolute joy to know! I do hope you’ll stop by and see for yourself!

Have a blessed day, friends!

Very cute and you look adorable in it. I like your flipped out hair. While I was reading, I kept wondering if the color scheme/style was patterned after your cards. I thought maybe you blessed her with them also and she made an apron like such. I guess not so it's a God-incidence.

Love,
Paula

Just a little something from Judy said...

Tracy, I am rarely at a loss for words, but a few minutes ago it happened to me. I am truly humbled and honored by your extreme kindness to me. I have been so very blessed by your friendship and the friendships of so many in this blogging world. A year ago I could never have imagined this. Thank you so very much!! Thank you for sharing the adorable photo of you. You make that apron look even better than it did in the box. And I want to tell Paula(Sweet Pea) on her comment above, that you did send me your perfectly made and oh, so beautiful notecards, even though the apron is not created to go with them. Thank you again, Tracy!

That's an apron I'd conveniently 'forget' to take off before wearing to the grocery store just to show it off, lol.
