Package #2 Received from thisbirdsabsurd
You're welcome a million, thisbirdsabsurd! Speaking of... I received my second package from her as well, and holy crap! I am seriously in love with her art dolls and, as sheepishly as a shepherdess could, asked if she'd mind sending me a something for me to follow so I can make my own. I not only got a pattern but an entire DIY kit! It included her hand drawn pattern on heavy paper, cute fabric, an embroidery hoop (Would you believe my first? I will NOT be afraid!), embroidery thread and needles, and coordinating ribbon. I can't wait to get started, I think everyone in my family is getting an art doll for Christmas this year. LOL!
Some charms to embellish her, I love these!
This cutie is going to be my salt cellar. I immediately dumped the contents of my old cracked salt cellar into this little piggy. Isn't he awesome?
I should have used something for scale, but this hand painted box couldn't hold more than a cup of beans, if that. It's painted with a tiny primitive scene that represents our homestead. A weeping willow tree, farmhouse, sheep and working border collie. I'm in awe of her painting skills. So tiny and beautiful!
But wait, there's more! Check out the adorable felted lamb inside. It's got a little heart hanging from it's collar! Such great needlefelting skills! I told thisbirdsabsurd from the start that I want to be her when I grow up and this is a perfect example.
Here's another. O.M.G. Can you believe someone would make this and put it in a box? I know I'd have a hard time doing it! The best part is the fabric selections. All animals and bees and a sample of the butterfly fabric I sent her in box #1. Love love LOVE it!
Here's the back, more awesomeness.
And inside are some recipe cards tucked in. Maybe I'll make this a recipe book! Whatever I decide to do with it, it will be treasured always. Thank you so much, Jen. You really are a talented, wonderful person!
