When the mail comes around in the early afternoon, I don't usually receive anything. Sometimes the occasional contract or W-9 from one of the writers, or a note from a diabetes educator, or my Shape magazine that, for some reason, is delivered to dLife instead of my home.
But yesterday, I received a nice, puffy envelope. With a box inside.
Oooh. Because I have no self-restraint, I opened it right up to reveal ... the little green bag.
(Cue Reservoir Dogs soundtrack.)
I opened the bag and out slid the necklace from Moonson Artisans, courtesy of the contest I had entered on TuDiabetes. After some back and forth with our own talented Beth, she created a necklace using the Six Until Me logo.
I think it is just beautiful. This piece is so lovely and ... unique. I am so impressed with their work. She inscribed the back, too.
I have never had anything quite like this before, something from my mind made concrete. It is exactly as I had pictured it. Huge thanks to Beth and Daniel at Monsoon Artisans for their exquisite handiwork, and to Manny for putting the contest together at TuDiabetes.
