(Sorry, this post is a bit later than I wanted. Blogger was acting mad wack*.)
While I was spending my free time in December crafting gifts for people I love, my bosom friend Robyn was busy crafting lovely and thoughtful things for me! Unbeknownst to me until now, she has taken up a new craft that I have yet to venture into, jewelry making. This is the beautiful bracelet she made for lucky moi. I'd love to learn more about it and maybe try some for myself, if I can get these kind of results. Look at the tiny shrinky charms! sigh...Charley Harper!
She sewed this notebook/notecard wrap for me, which was inspired by a similar project on Soulemama. Lovely!
Included inside were a great little Molskine, stamps, and room for a few of the note cards below, which she found just for me because she knows it's from my favorite fabric line ever. It's so nice to be loved.
As if that were not off the hook enough, these are the sweetest little pillows she made for my two girls from Wee Wonderful's elf pattern. As I'm sure you will agree, Robyn's embroidery is mad crunk, and I wish I had her sick sewing skillz*.
*This pack of helpful slang reference cards was their gift for my husband, and it is the funniest thing we've seen in a long time. We are thoroughly enjoying being ever more hip (er...dope?), in spite of also being hopelessly suburban and over thirty.
