Let me introduce you once again to "Mickey" my very special friend I met on etsy! Mickey was the very first person to ever be in Gabbriella's Sampler...she believed in me from the very beginning going back to December of 2008 when I approached her with the idea of starting my own monthly sampler. In just a matter of days mickey got together 50 handmade leather pouches to send out in the sampler. So before the end of December I had received my first item to place in my special monthly box! Her sample was a tiny leather pouch with natural polished stones placed in them. Her pouches represented the quality of her handiwork and the rocks represented the stones used sometimes in her jewelry making. She is so full of talent! Now she has made the cover of "Country Living"! What a celebration there should be! Below is the description of her boxes from the actual listing in etsy...
These Christmas gift boxes are featured on the "flip book" cover of Country Living magazine the December/January issue. When you peel off the brown sticky paper to renew your precious membership, my ecovintagevegan gift boxes are reveled.
