One Thankful Mom Jewelry by Cate Florey Studio

My friend, Cate Florey (Cate Florey Studio), partners with me to create beautiful hope-filled jewelry just for my readers. We recently developed a line of adoption and foster care jewelry we hope you’ll love as much as we do.

Weighted Blankets

My friend, Gina, makes wonderful weighted blankets in all fabrics, colors, and sizes. She loves to help people pick their own custom fabrics and designs, or you can choose one she has already made. She made one for Wogauyu’s 11th birthday that has Seattle Seahawks fabric on one side and blue, minky fabric on the other. He loves it and uses it every day.
