I have attempted many times to make xmas cards and usually lose steam and inspiration before finishing it all to even send out but I guess this year all it took was a little off-beat inspiration haha. Watch out for those snowmen!
First of all my secret swapper is toooo awesome All of the items were wrapped in pretty rainbow paper (I think she must have caught onto my love of COLOR! ). The first thing I opened were these BEAUTIFULLLLLLLL felted bag and pouch. The bigger one is for my tampons at work hehe, she said she loved my story about how I keep them in an old cracker box and thought I could use this one. The smaller one is for my cell phone and it fits perfectly It should since she stalked me out and looked up the exact measurements to make it haha. I am so smitten with the color combo here, I keep pulling it out and looking at it. And its so soft too. I love them so much! I've never gotten anything felted before.
Next I pulled out GORGEOUS handspun that's really chunky and soft. Both are Faulkland wool; the one on the left is dyed by lapoli and the one on the right is dyed by my stalker! So pretty! I'm definitely going to add one to my blanket, but I think I might save the second one to make a really pretty scarf or hat out of.
The final thing I opened was this really funky bright neckwarmer with an awesome handmade button (I think). It totally fits my style perfectly and I love it. Even the pink fits well with the rest of the colors
I received from Zuliblu a couple of days ago and finally got a chance to upload the picture! The bamboo pendant is awesome; I love old fashioned pictures and scenes The dangly one has chain in it too and sparkles a lot Always a great thing hehe. Thanks so much Zuliblu!
I finished all my xmas crafting/shopping and had nothing to do so I decided to actually make something for myself for once. I browsed the interwebs for ideas and came up with some stencils to have fun with This is all done using freezer paper
The Sam Jackson Bunny was a totally random find but I love it. Apparently my paint loves to bleed on the bag material though; but its not too bad. I'm trying to think of a good caption or phrase to add on to the shirt with the girl screaming. Any ideas?
I got the most awesome pendants from Wendlina and craftygurl!!! They also were sweethearts and angeled for me too.
I was really really hoping for some ceramic pendants from craftygurl since I LOVED the ones she sent last round hehe. And I'm completely smitten with the metal heart and bead charms that W did. Thank you so much gals!!
