Chills and Thrills Glow in the Dark Collection



Favorite Christmas Memory

Christmas season of 2015,  it was about the first week of December, and I was decorating my house for the holidays with my daughter Casey. She would come back home for a couple weeks for the holidays each year as she lived and worked in another state. As far as mother and daughters go, I am so blessed that we are and always have been so close. These extended visits made the holidays even more special and fun for me.  It was an exciting time for us that year as she had recently gotten engaged. We were enjoying our night sipping some holiday cocktails and decorating my house when she slipped me my Christmas present a bit early.   Oh how fun I thought.   Well... this tiny little box had carried the biggest Christmas gift I have ever received.  Inside was a beautiful bracelet.  As I pulled it out I realized there was an inscription on the inside and it read... “Will you be my Maid of Honor?”   I was and still am so grateful that she had chosen me for this incredible honor.  
My daughter and truly my best friend.   Well this past April, 2017, the wedding was absolutely beautiful and a blast!  It was a perfect fairy tale beach wedding and this Maid of Honor, mom, and friend was truly humbled for such a gift.

Fun fabrics. One of my favorite Christmas memories is my first year in college (1960s). I hadn't been home in 4 months & my mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas dinner - I said Chinese. It became our traditional Christmas dinner after that. Thanks.

How cool that she asked you to be her maid of honor. We don't really do Halloween, but for those who do, I imagine then could stitch up some really fun things with all the fabrics in this collection.
