Meanwhile, JJ Jacob's fused glass ornament got missed in the initial reveal. JJ creates delightfully playful, fused glass ornaments, often creating a new design each year. She even teaches classes on how to make your own fused glass ornaments! Swing by her blog to see more of her designs.
Margo Lynn's package to me was another of those that took the adventurous route. But oh was it worth the wait! Inside I found the cutest miniature stocking, a beautiful card and two extra little gifts. Thank you Margo Lynn!
|Stocking and Stocking shadows!
It's been terribly grey here the past week, something that I truly realized as I tried to photograph the stocking. To make it worse, I think all of my photography skills have flown out the window (perhaps Santa will catch and return them when he swings by next week). Margo Lynn knit the stocking from this lovely gold, glittery thread that's really, really hard to do justice with my current (lack of) skills. And something funny - I didn't even notice the purple bugle beads along the top edge until I had it under bright light to photograph. Remember what I said about how grey it is here?
Then I had to find its new home. First, I hung it on our Christmas tree.

Margo Lynn also sent:
|Two lotion bars - one for myself and one for my friend who acted as my mail drop
|A lovely letterpress card. The buildings feel like they're embossed

Happy Holidays, and Merry Christmas!
And Happy Solstice, the days will be growing longer again after today!
