Someone I'd like you to meet

People call me many things - not all of them flattering, I'm sure - but nobody would call me creative. I do, however like to surround myself with creative and artistic friends - my husband, for example, or my mother-in-law. (You can see one of her mixed media embroideries here if you scroll down a little.)

One of my very good and incredibly creative friends, Jeana Marie, has just done something really exciting. She's launched her very own Etsy store! Now she's what I call creative. Right now, she's also what I called excited...drunk on adrenaline excited...dancing around the house with her husband excited.

It's Jeana Marie who created the beautiful miniature dress in the picture above. I'm sure you'll agree that it's covetously beautiful. It is also the very fist listing in Jeana's store.

Do pop along and take a look. You'll find her at unbecominglily.etsy.com.
Jeana Marie also has a deliciously beautiful blog that I follow religiously. If you go and visit her soon you'll have the opportunity to enter her very special give away.

The four little petticoats in this photo are destined for Jeana Marie's shop later this week. The littlest one on the right, recital dress / haiku is already there. Jeana Marie is offering visitors to her blog a chance to win one of these dresses, simply by leaving her a comment telling her which petticoat they like the very best and why. Sounds too good to be true, doesn't it?

Do pop by and visit - and if you do, tell her I sent you, okay? That way I might get a chance to win one of these beautiful dresses too.


  1. oh -jeanne - you are so lovely to say so many kind things! Thank you so much, you wonderful woman! this is indeed very exciting for me ;)

  2. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I seem to be 'bumping' into homeschooling families at every turn. Maybe God is trying to tell me something? (Actually, I like the idea. It's the practical side of things that I can't visualise.)

    Thanks for the heads-up on the giveaway. Those dresses are just adorable.


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
