Happy Birthday Sampler
I got my first anniversary birthday Sampler today. It really made my day, which was mostly spend running dreary errands. So coming home and finding the Sampler in my mailbox definitely gave me a boost.
This cute little notecard from Sprout Studio was one of my favorite things. I also loved a red and green seed bead bracelet from Erin Elizabeth. Very simple with great choice of colors!
Ohbara gave a cool little packet of supplies for making kanzashi. I don't know what kanzashi is at the moment, but I know I'll be making some, because the fabric in the little packet is beautiful and intriguing.
Pink Thread & More put in the coolest thing- a keychain with a seamstresses' tape meaure inside a cute little sewn pouch. I've been needing a tape measure-- it's the best!
The Sampler is great & I love it! But one of the things that makes it uniquely The Sampler is that I always get something really weird in it that I have to throw away. Sometimes I think I'm really too old for The Sampler, because some things in it, I just don't understand. The thing I threw away with a shudder this time was a little Sculpey fetus from FeTo . I just don't get it. Forgive me. It gave me the creeps. Can anyone explain?
