Pretty Pretty Package



Just thought I would share another project I made using some of the wonderful ribbon available from 3GirlJam!




I really had fun decorating this little package...and it's not even for a birthday!  I have this thing...even if  I make something pretty...it just feels SO MUCH MORE SPECIAL if it's in a nice package!  Don't you think?  I used several different Crinkle Ribbons and the all NEW Burlap Trim!

Here's a list (and links) to the ribbons if you are curious and want to make one too!



If you are visiting from the 3Girl Jam blog, you came here to see what's inside the package, yes?

I know you are wondering what's inside.

So, here it is:


I created this sweater when I was on vacation a few weeks ago visiting my daughter in Seattle.  I was working on the same design, but using a hand dyed brown wool, and she really loved it.

I talked her into trying something with more color and went and picked out the colors at a yarn store near her grandfather's.  I started it while visiting her grandfather.  It wasn't quite finished when I left to come back home.
And it's on it's way to her now.  I just know she'll be surprised about the packaging, but I hope she is even more thrilled about how the sweater turned out.  

Anyway, it was just as much fun to package up and send as it was to make.

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a great weekend!

Mixed Up Media Chix - Summertime Blog Hop!

I have a fun project to share today!  Very excited about this one.  I've been working on it for over a week and...well...it's still not completely done, but it's getting there!
I've done this for a super wonderful friend that is going through a bit of a rough time.  She needs encouragement, so I'm putting together a little art journal to let her know how special she is.
And while this is a special gift, it's also part of a really fun blog hop I'm participating in with the other Mixed Up Media Chix!   Follow along...You'll truly be inspired.
So, if you need to start at the beginning:
