My mom sent me a care package yesterday, it always makes me feel like I'm at home, even though I'm way up here in freezing North Dakota. She went antique shopping a few weeks ago and bought me my most favorite things! BUTTONS!!! She found 2 antique jars full of them. I thought it was so neat I had to post it. I'm not going to sort these buttons like I normally do. I love the antique look, so I'm going to use them as decoration in my craft room. I wrapped a little pink ribbon around the top one to spruce it up a bit.
She also sent me down a trip to memory lane and sent me some of my old Lisa Frank stuff. I used to be OBSESSED with Lisa Frank. Did anyone else go through this phase or remember Lisa Frank? It tickled me to see these and she sent me enough to where I could actually write a few Happy Mail letters with the stationary. I think it would be a fun idea. Do you think it would be cute or kinda lame?
Here are some old postcards
Stationary, stickers, more envelopes and a cute little notepad
Oh and you can't forget Zapp's chips! MMMMMMM!!!
Last night I had my very FIRST embroidery lesson with Bri. She is an amazing teacher and I had so much fun learning. I had a little company half way through my lesson (little Kaylee would not sleep) and she watched as I embroidered until Daddy got home. Here is the very first thing I made. All I had was Christmas patterns.
This morning I was still wanting to embroider some more, so I made myself a little Rudolf. Embroidering is so much fun if you haven't tried it yet. My work isn't perfect by any means but I think I did pretty good for it being my very first time. I'm not late on Christmas, I'm just really early for next year, hehe.
Thank you so much Bri for teaching me last night.
I have soo many fun projects for the weekend coming up, a few treasure boxes and other goodies to put together for friends. Then putting my craft room all together as well as painting it. I of course will take a before and after picture. I love those!
I also am HONORED to say I was let in on an awesome idea last night from my very good friend Heidi. We are going to be doing a very special project with a few other very special ladies. It's a surprise and as soon as I get more details I will fill all of you in.
On another note, overnight my followers have jumped by 6! So HI to all my awesome new followers! Looks like my giveaway will be sooner than I thought, YAY!
