What an excellent day at the mail box! No bills, a car magazine for Stud Muffin and 4 things for me!! Okay, two things were stuff I got from Ebay, and they're boring, so I won't show you those.
But look what the UPS man brought me from Bari J!
Black and White quilted belt with shiny, shiny buckle!
I won this from her a little while ago during a giveaway on her blog! I just love her stuff. Go over and take a look at her fabulous handbags!! *Drool, drool, slurp!*
Next up, another score from a bloggie friend's giveaway! This one is from Creative Kismet and is a hand-stamped, sewn and embellished Love Angel.
Love Angel, hand-stamped notecards and Chocolate!! How did she know? Probably read my blog header!
I was so excited to win this, I didn't read her post well enough to realize that I was also getting some hand stamped notecards. The dark chocolate bar was probably added so I would slobber on it instead of on the Love Angel. I did promise to take very good care of her!
Here she is in her new home... hanging from the ceiling fan in my studio, watching over me and giving me some crafting good vibes!
You all need to visit these incredibly talented gals at their blogs. They will rev your crafting juices up and make you want to DO SOMETHING!
And so, I did. Do something, that is. I made another apron, this one trimmed out with contrasting pockets and everything!
Of course, it needed a matching shopping bag to complete the set.
As is my way, these were made from thrifted pillowcases, the pockets are from a shirt, and the orange polka dot bias trim is a new product from Michael Miller Fabrics. Esty? Etsy anyone??
I'm on a roll now! So, what do you think I need with stuff like this? Anybody want to guess??
I was going to stop this post here and let you stew on that one for a while, but, well, I not that mean! And no, I'm not "with child!" Been there, done that (hi girls! *waving*)
But, this week, I installed a retractable clothesline in the backyard, and so, I need...
a clothes pin bag!!! And another one.
Okay, I don't really need more than one, but they are so fun and thrifted baby clothes are so cute! I feel an Esty shop coming on soon?!?
