Etsybloggers Carnival - Dec. 18, 2009

Thanks, LindaB, for hosting this week's etsybloggers carnival. I thought you gave us an interesting choice to write about:
1. Holidays - Christmas, Hanukkah & Others, what was your favorite gift received? Was it handmade?
2. What are your favorite color combinations? What do you create using those colors?

I would have written about color, since it's one of my favorite aspects of art. But a favorite gift? That's an easy one, and very personal! A good combination for a carnival that's due tomorrow!

My favorite gift was a ring DH bought me, the second year we were together. Oh, I've received a lot of great presents from my family, but this was different. My previous boyfriend, who I lived with for about 15 years, never bought me presents. And then getting married to DH, and receiving such a feminine item, was really thrilling!

It's gold (and I usually wear silver jewelry) with emeralds and diamonds. I love it, and wear it all the time.

I love these sentimental gifts. All these etsy blogger posts are making me remember - the first holiday gift my husband ever bought me was a ring, too! (Or maybe it was the 2nd? ... it's been 22 years, hard to remember...)
