First, join me in wishing a happy birthday to blogging buddy Robin Bird of Bird Tweets!
On Saturday my friend Gina came to visit -- we're almost like twins -- born a day apart, nine years apart. We share the craft gene!
So, it had been a mighty long time! It was hard to stop talking, but we managed to do so long enough to celebrate belated holidays -- definitely Christmas, maybe birthday too -- who knows. It was just fun!
Then these wonderful stitchmarkers she made (a fellow knitter!) using glass beads she made!
(And packaged in this cute little Laurel box!)
Then there was an array of creative materials.
Take a look at this card stock...
12x12, solid color both sides, but when you tear it, the tear is a coordinated color.
You can also distress it. Catch the linen pattern that comes through with the paler coordinate!
I loved the swatch book and paper pieces.
Rub ons, stickers, shiny paper, a decorative edging punch, postits, you name it!
And this pretty little drawstring bag she got in Korea!
I was the luckiest recipient in the world, mostly because it was from my friend!
