when i saw that becky of strumpet's crumpets was hosting another craft swap with her friend amber of hoot-n-annie, i eagerly emailed becky and said i wanted to sign up. i was pleasantly surprised to find out a few days later that she was going to be my swap partner! i've followed her blog for a while now, and i really love her creations :)
it took me a while to think of the craft i wanted to make for her, and i decided to revive an old "Opposite Day" Shop classic with a new twist. i made a smaller log pillow (about 13 inches long, opposed to the original 16-17 inches), which ends up being a perfect size for a neck pillow, and travels much better than my previous logs. becky told me her favorite color is orange, so i picked some fabrics with splashes of orange and added hearts to her pillow. i also sewed orange felt hearts to each end.
it was a lot of fun to create, and i've decided to make a few for my shop! i'll be sure to update here when they are stocked.
i was so excited to open my package from becky! along with some sweet goodies (that included a few iphone notepads and a "dexter" notepad, how cool!) she made me the most incredible embroidery piece with my intials! along with using my favorite color, she even used my blog font for the type...so awesome! she definitely did a great job of personalizing her craft for me. i absolutely LOVE it! i'm currently trying to pick the perfect place to hang it in my room :) thank you so much becky!!! you're fantastic!
