I met Lisa at Blissdom 2009 and was in awe of her talent and her peaceful spirit — she just radiates happiness and calm and love.
I followed stalked her online after that and then at Blissdom 2010, I was able to spend more time with her — see that picture, yes, she’s really that gorgeous in real life — here’s the thing that makes Lisa who she is — her heart, generosity, spirit, personality — they are even more gorgeous than her face.
A group of us were in the airport for several hours following Blissdom and I was lucky enough to get to spend quite a bit of time chatting with her and her darling twin sister, Chrissy.
I left Blissdom with Lisa more firmly embedded in my heart
That necklace up there — Lisa made that.
and this one
and this one
I have given my last two friends to have babies, each a custom Lisa Leonard necklace and I recommend them to EVERYONE.
My own jewelry box holds about 6 Lisa Leonard necklaces and every time I wear one, I receive compliments on it.
Last year, I gave this necklace to Princess and she wears it every. single. day

So here’s the deal — I’m not just writing this because I love Lisa, which I do — however, this post has another point.
On Thursday, we found out the joyous news about my FIL’s successful surgery that removed parts of his lungs and all the cancer! YAY!
Moments after getting that phone call, I opened my mailbox and found a gift from Lisa. A $50 gift card to her shop (Lisa, I love you)
Well, that was an overwhelming blessing upon another one so, I emailed Lisa and told her that I’d like to pay it forward, she said ” of course”
So — here’s the deal. I’m giving one of y’all the $50 gift card to Lisa’s shop.
Spend it on yourself for Christmas, or surprise someone special with a beautiful, custom gift. The tears in their eyes and the smile on their face will warm even the coldest Christmas morning, trust me.
