Frostee Jr. was getting restless. He couldn't wait to visit the shop with all the cupcakes! Crystal was already in Diana Evans' shop admiring the neck pendants made of wood. She thought her friend, Dove, would enjoy the angel pendant. She found a hula girl pendant for her friend, Ku'ulei, and she ordered a custom pendant for her teacher.

Frostee Jr. wanted the Gratitude Box, Sweet Cupcake with a Cherry on top, for himself. He was trying to convince Mrs. Frostee that he could use it to keep his pet rocks so that he wouldn't leave it lying on the kitchen floor. He was unsuccessful.

He went to his dad with the same story, and his dad thought Frostee Jr. was making a good effort to be tidy. Frostee Jr. got his Gratitude Box, and Mrs. Frostee frowned at Frostee. Frostee tried to avoid Mrs. Frostee's warm stare as he quickly walked across the shop to look at the Original Paintings.

The first giveaway item for today is a set of two Handmade Snowman and Christmas Tree Cards. The trees are hand cut from felt and decorated with faceted jewels. The snowman was watercolor painted and edged with glitter.

Diana also has another Etsy shop called Wrist Candy. She sells beautifully handcrafted bracelets. Visit Diana at her blog and her Etsy shops and say "Hi."

The next shop is owned by Crystal's friend's sister's mom's daughter, Lisa. Lisa is a new shop owner and still stocking her shelves, but Crystal found a few gifts for the friends on her list. Mrs. Frostee purchased a journal and a bookmark for her sister.

The second giveaway item for today is a puzzle pendant with a hand painted snowman by Lisa. Look at all the details on this tiny piece!

Visit Lisa at her Etsy shop or her blog and say "Hi."

It was getting colder, and Mrs. Frostee wished she had her favorite scarf that matched her favorite hat, which matched her favorite purse, and which matched her favorite shoes.

The Frostees had a few shops to visit before they could return home and have hot chocolate and watch their favorite holiday movie, "It's a Wonderful Life."
