I made this D.I.Y. kit for my ETSY store, which didn't sell, although the PDF version sold pretty well. So instead of having it lay around, I figured I would give it away! So just leave a comment about your favorite christmas ornament and you will be entered to win. Don't forget your email address so I can contact you if you win. I think I will run the contest til February so people have a chance to enter. Hope you like the kit :) (only for US residents.)
Here are a few pics from christmas, Regan got her very own handmade "pinkie pie" as she calls them. Made from a pattern by Amy Gaines for a poodle. She totally LOVES it! She has been asking me to make her a pink poodle for weeks and I worked on it after she went to bed for a few days, so she wouldn't see it. Harry, only 3 months old, only got a few toys, that he doesn't even care about yet. hehe.
In a city not to far away, I was once a tattoo artist. I have a degree in photography, so my photo albums are really good. I am a 31 year old mother of 2 kids and 2 dogs, I am obsessed with amigurumi, cupcakes,safety eyes, and anything made of yarn.
