Sunday Paddle update

I got a lovely message yesterday from M, who commissioned the "sunday paddle" necklace from me - a little boat with a little boy in the front and a little girl in the back. She had asked me to make it for her as she had seen my single person in a kayak necklace and it reminded her of the treasured times when her kids go out together in their boat on the lake.

Her message was just delightful. She said she was "beyond thrilled!" and that she "sat, parked in the middle of the road, and put it on!". Luckily she lives in the country! and... "You have provided me a treasure I will cherish- just like the two little people it symbolizes". And here they are!!!:

Yes, to go with her message, she included some photos of her son and daughter in their boat and views of their lake! It's lovely to feel a part of her story and to share the photos of her family and the lake where they paddle...

So enjoy M's beautiful photos of her treasured kids and the lake.

Thanks again M. It was a treat to make it - and just a joy working with you. Thank you for your lovely feedback. Happy paddling for all your family.

No wonder I always go on about how much I love selling online! I just love being part of stories like this and working with lovely people like M.

love the double kayak Ruth and the photos M sent are great . what wonderful children. The lake looks so interesting but I don't recognise the wading bird, what is it? I couldn't find it in my book you gave me. Love you Mum.

Looks like a little green heron?
Yes Charlotte - putting practice is over now! Just shady repose instead!
