Hand written notes and free stuff....

On all of the blogs I read, at some point the blogger writes about what you should include with the orders you ship out. Some of the suggestions are thank you notes, invoices, business cards, freebies.... just to name a few. Below is a picture of what I include with my purchases.

Holy felt!!!!

I am in love..... with felt!

This Christmas I made stockings for Abby, Lola and myself out of felt. I'd heard great things about working with felt, how it didn't fray and was easy to manipulate, but I was hesitant to try it. I get like that from time to time, hesitant to try a new technique or work with a new fabric for no reason other than..... what if I suck at it??? This Christmas I bit the bullet and decided to make stockings out of felt and I looooooved it!

Here are the stocking hung on my bookcase. (I don't have a fireplace) Mine is in the middle, obviously. My favorite is Abby's. I love how the "a" came out with the circles around it.

I can't wait to make more goodies with felt. I have a list of pillows I'd like to make for around the house. As soon as I make them I'll post pics. Of course I am horrible at making the time to make things for myself, so I can't guarantee they'll be done soon.... but I am trying to get better about that. :-)
