i work at a girl scout camp, and for those of you who aren't familiar, it's traditional to choose a "nickname" so that the girls can be on a first name basis without being "rude" (originating with the beginning of girl scouting).  so, as a thanks to everyone for 5 great weeks so far, i sort of went felt crazy.  my pin, i'm gingerbread, isn't pictured but it is also cute!  this is my first time doing anything like this, so i hope you like them and i'd appreciate feedback!!

I love them. Many, many, many years ago I worked at a GS camp and went by Mac - short for macrame - since I was the arts and crafts counselor as well. How I wish I'd have thought to make something for all the staff. What a warm gesture.
