Thought I'd take a photo of some of the special presents I received this year, some of them came from the lovely shop owners on Folksy.
We have the cute little cashmere puppy from The Hunny Bunny Company, the stylish brooch from pantsandpaper, keepsake stocking which is the home for the sweetest of little mice from Northfield Primitives, pretty phone charm (with a bead that matches my phone's wallpaper) from my daughter, Katie, and a scary Polymer Clay monster from my son, Ben.
On the giving side, I shopped from Folksy and gave my little neice a cashmere puppy and her mum, who absolutely adores poppies, a bright and cheerful poppy brooch by Crafty Koala.
Now that all present opening has taken place in our family, I can safely post up a picture of this bag I made for my sister from an unwanted Aran jumper. It is the first of my hand made items to have an "original by Ellie's Treasures" tag attached, so I'm quite thrilled with it! Inside I put a variety of girly things including a necklace that I'd made (but forgot to take a picture of), a mini tile magnet with pretty painted silver horse head designed by Katie, a family photo and a very pretty bracelet from Angels and Me.
