Your extra little owl can serve, for now, as a prayer reminder. Every time you see it, just say an extra prayer for that precious little one who will make their way into your hearts and your home. How darling!
Praying for you,


Those little wallets are adorable! They will be on my list for friends' birthdays this year for sure! Thanks for sharing!


Melis, I want to wish you a extra special christmas. I have followed along with your blog for a long while now. I am so charmed by your quiet faith, sweet love for your daughter and joy for life. I find you very inspiring and I enjoy your blog very much. I think you are such a dear, have a wonderful holiday season, God bless you. Alyssa


I check your blog every day to see if there's another beautiful item you've created to inspire me! Thank you so much! Merry Christmas! Natalie


Very generous offer from you Melissa! I hope you and your little family have a very special celebration, and lets hope and pray that 3 become 4 soon. It's a very difficult situation, good to have the love and support of your loved ones. LOVE your wee owl family!xx

Beautiful projects (I love the bell inside the zipper flower), and the sweet owls given to you are amazing. Wow, I didn't know anything about pikle bags until this; just checked out their stepdaughters would love this...and me too! Thanks for the link.

Melis, love the card and pincushion that you created for your friend. I can see that they were made with love. The owl family that she made for you is just adorable. The Pikle bag is such a good idea and they're very cute.

Merry Christmas! Thank you for the give away. Beautiful creations. I love Glitz. Wishing you a blessed New Year!


Your message is beautiful and literally brought tears to my eyes because my daughter has angels waiting for her in heaven, too. The wallets are absolutely adorable, just like your projects you share and inspire with your readers. Although I seldom post on blogs, yours is one I faithfully read each morning. Merry Christmas to you and your precious family. Hopefully the new little one will arrive sooner than expected.
