I've been a lucky girl lately. But you know, Santa says I've been nice this year. And I have one last package to share with you (for now, bwahahaha!).
From Ashley. I saw some earrings that she had made, and asked if she'd be interested in swapping with me (I'm getting pretty bold now with the swapping requests, huh?). We had agreed to swap some of her earrings for an amigurumi, but Ashley put in some additional time and effort to make and send a couple of extras, too. She's such a sweetheart. Here's the card she sent me:
What a cutie. He doesn't look too stinky to me, but he sure does look embarrassed. Maybe he mistook some beans for peanuts during lunchtime?
This snowman is just great. He's made from a bell, pom poms, felt, craft foam, and a ribbon. I think I'm going to attach some string and use him as an ornament, or maybe attach him to a chain so I can wear him around my neck...you know, so I can jingle while I walk.
And these are the lovely earrings that I was coveting (the pink earrings are Swarovski crystal, and the green ones are peridot), photographed with a magazine scrap bowl that Ashley made for me. I've always loved these bowls, and actually tried to make one once upon a time. I didn't get very far. I lost it ("it" being my sanity) somewhere between all the folding, cutting, and glueing. I'm so happy that Ashley made one for me...it's fabulous, and must have taken *so* much time. Thanks so much, Ashley!
I'm running a little late this morning, so I'll have to post the amigurumi I made for Ashley later. Ta-ta for now.
