There's nothing like going to the mailbox and pulling out packages! :) Today I got two! Yippee!
The first is a prize I won in The Cardboard Crafter's blog giveaway. I won this adorable pillow case dress that she sewed for me! DOn't you wished you'd have entered?! She did a wonderful job on it. I love the fabric choices. I'll be giving this dress as a gift to my cousin for one of her twins. I think they're going to love it. I know my daughter did when I put it on her giant Barbie doll for the pics. She didn't want to take it off :)
TCC's fairly new blog is entertaining and informative with posts about crafting and being a mother. I look forward to reading more of what she posts in the future. She seems like a very cool mom.
I also received some awesome Ameraucana rooster feathers from Connie at Missing Willow Farm. She's another great blogger with the most picturesque farm I've ever seen! She sent these feathers to me from her roosters to decorate some hats I''ve been making. She's so kind and thoughful! The pic doesn't do them justice. They have a beautiful greenish iridescence to them in the light. They're going to look great when I get them trimmed and cleaned up.
I've been enjoying Connie's blog since she started it just after we did a Craftster.org craft swap back in August of last year. I have to mention that not only does she and her husband raise chickens and other farm animals, they do it all! She even keeps bees! I really don't know how she keeps up with all of it and finds time to regularly post such nice pictures and interesting stories and info about farm life. She's always posting their clever solutions for managing a farm. I'm very excited because we have plans for a future craft swap around November. The daughter and I look forward to her handmade soaps!
Thanks so much for sending the great packages! They really made my day!
