My Season of Friendship Swap to Jan
I participated in the Season of Friendship swap that Amy of Bumble Bee Lane hosted and was paired up with Jan MacKay of The Primitive Nest . We could pick one season that we liked best and then answered some questions regarding what other prim things we liked.
We were suppose to get to know each other through reading one another blogs and through emails. Jan said she liked little sheepies. So, I made this set of sheep blocks for her to tuck onto a shelf.
Staying on the sheep theme, I made some salt dough sheep and little hearts for Jan to display in an old bowl or trencher. I loved making these little cuties.
And after reading a bit of Jan's blog I found out that her and Phoebe are avid gardeners, so I decided to make a shabby garden sign for her to display.
And any gardener welcomes their friend the bumble bee...They are worth their weight in gold. Flying from one blossom to the other, gathering nectar and happily pollinating all our blossoms that will be fruits...oh my those little critters are mighty efficient. I hand poured Jan a "bee kinde" blackened beeswax ornie with my newest mold. I really love this one.
And anyone that reads Jan's blog knows that she is just "punch drunk" these days. Nope, she hasn't been nipping at the bottle, but at needle punching instead. So decided to make her a little sign she could tuck showing her passion.
I also sent a set of felted coasters that had flowers on them...forgot to take a picture of them as they almost didn't make it into the package. Anyway, it was a blast to get to know Jan through this swap and reading her blog.
Until next time....
