I received a few crafting-related goodies for Christmas, I hope “Santa” was as good to you as he was to me!
I’m really excited about the “Sew What Pro” software that my mom and dad gave me, along with some beautiful bamboo towels. The software makes is easy to combine designs and files and will make my embroidery machine much more fun to use! My “nieces” (thanks, Jessica!) gave me a gift card to Hancock Fabrics, so as soon as they put their thread on sale I’m going to head over there and stock up! I’ve got some Mardi Gras ideas in mind that I’ve got to get started on soon.
My mom also found these gorgeous vintage earrings that I’ll use to embellish some new frames:
And of course I can’t forget the bottle of Gorilla Glue also from my nieces! I can’t wait to create some “Shanty Sisters Inspired” projects with that! My family and friends were so generous and thoughtful with their gifts, I’d love to list everything with photos here, but I at least wanted to highlight some of my favorites.
Last but not least, my hubby really proved he knows the true me when he surprised me with this fab.u.lous trench coat:
Um, hellllloooo??!?! It has FLEUR DE LIS all over it! My obsession is complete!
GEAUX SAINTS, beat Arizona!
