Gifts into Gifts...
I know I have said it before but it requires saying again...bloggers are such wonderful people. When you find a blogger who you share creative common ground and you become really good friends there isn't a better feeling for your heart and soul. Jillayne is one of these special people. You probably know her and her blog so no surprise here. This surprise package arrived for me one day. I couldn't imagine what it would contain.
It contained a jackpot of beautiful and creative and wonderful gifts. Thank you my dear friend. I am so very grateful for you.
This is an assortment of beads and charms in my favorite peacock colors. Many of them are hand created out of polymer by another friend of Jillayne's. The beads and button are exquisite in person. I will think of just the perfect way to use these lovelies.
This bracelet was a complete surprise as I never knew Jillayne to make jewelry. What?!! You did it just for me?!!! Thank you beyond words. This bracelet is so much fun and very well made my dear. I love it and you. This is vintage bling heaven!
Here is the bundle of fabric that was included in my surprise package. I decided to make some gifts with it. I began by cutting out the "postcards". I gathered some supplies and went to the sewing machine.
Here is just a peek of what I am doing. No reveal of the completed project as I am mailing a few of these very soon and want them to be a surprise upon receipt. Thank you so very much Jillayne. You have spoiled me and blessed me. My gratitude is endless.
We have lovely weather...warmer than normal. However there is rain coming toward the end of the week. Lots of rain. I think Washington state is sending their flooding rain down to us. We have had a good amount of rain so our ground is quite wet. After the extra dry summer we had the rain is welcomed.
I am very behind this year with my holiday efforts. I need some extra elves to help me but they seem to be in short supply as Santa has them very busy at the North Pole. I do believe...
May you each be able to enjoy the magic of this holiday season as you make your lists, check them twice and work on your projects. Blissful creating one and all...
